Well, no one can really help much with that, because what you charge will be determined by your labor, materials, and overhead. You need to get that figured out before you open your business. Your pricing will also be affected by local market (competitors) although prices can vary based on everything from quality to turnaround time.
I hope you have a great partner. While a partnership can make startup easier it could complicate things later. A partnership almost always ends bad. You could end up with a fierce competitor shorty down the road. A good woman, like a wife partner, would be better.
Put a few prices out there that you feel are very fair and will still enable a heathly profit. You can adjust later.

Hello Cocco; John is RIGHT it's going to be tough. Good Luck.
Cocco:how do you determine pricing?
Pricing... whatever you AND your customer both agree to.
More important: always create work that you are proud of, where you later on you always think that you'd tried your best at the time.

Giving you a price structure is impossible as we do not have any idea on cost of doing business in Namibia. Taxes, write offs on equipment, and all the other things that make up cost. A sign shop i used to freelance at calculated price on square inches of material used plus artwork. I was not concern with the details but would bet they based the price on total cost of all the costs figured as amount of vinyl used plus profit percentage.
Lately, I have too much month left at the end of the money!
