When using the Print Pricing Engine in PrintNow “Unit Per Area Range” or “Square Unit Per Area Range” is used for print parametric jobs. We define area range tables and quantity breaks for unit pricing that can calculate area ranges differently. We worked with both paperboard and corrugated companies to determine the industry standards. Please contact PrintNow for further details.
