For Non-perfector: (Colors Side A / Press Colors) + (Colors Side B / Press Colors) = # Passes

For Perfector: (Colors Side A + Colors Side B) / Press Colors = # Passes

Deliver Sheets = (Estimate Quantity / Number Out) x Idents (Sigs)

Deliver Sheets (if bindery operations) = (Next Bindery Gross Qty + Next Bindery MR Qty) / # Out

Deliver Sheets increase as bindery operations with spoilage and/or makeready sheets are added

Gross Run Sheets = Deliver Sheets / (1 - run spoilage%)# of Passes

Note: If Calc 6 “Include MR Sheets in Press Run” is on, they are added to the above calculation

Impressions (sum of run sheet for all passes) = (Deliver Sheets / (1 - run spoilage%)) Result is divided by (1 - run spoilage%) for each passes. Sum of each result is the number of impressions.

Impressions / UPH = Standard Hours

Standard Hours x J% = Estimated Hours (if less then minimum press run time, minimum used)

Estimated Hours x Rate = Cost $

Cost $ x Markup % = Markup $

Cost $ + Markup $ = Sell $
