How to calculate line usage

Piano consisting of three staves: left hand, right hand, chords, vocal line and lyric line equals five lines.

Organ consisting of three staves: left hand, right hand, pedals, chords, vocal line and lyric line equals six lines.

Guitar consisting of chords and notation/rhythm slashes equals two lines.

Drums equal one line.

Percussion equals one line for each instrument stave.

Harp equals two lines.

Brass and Woodwind equals one line per instrument, even when block written.

Choral equals one line for each vocal part, even when block form.

Lyrics equal one line when score is block written, however when vocal staves are separated, then the number of lines equals the number of vocal separated staves.

A typical cabaret arrangement consisting of four rhythm and three front lines would amount to 12 lines, therefore attracting the $9.20 per vertical bar rate.


Product Finishing Charges for Standard A4 Size Product

Rate per A3 double sided page (equates to 4 pages of A4 music), including cardboard cover with long arm stapling for binding and final multiple copy production

Job Set-up Fee of $45.00 plus for black and white output $3.00 per A3 sheet of paper or cardboard for the first 100 sheets, reducing to $1.00 per sheet for additional sheets after the first 100 sheets - stapling included - this refers to the total number of sheets copied rather than a per final copy price. For each required colour sheet there is an additional charge per sheet of $3.00 to the above.


Please note that quotes for using other sizes of paper for final printing and binding cannot be provided here, owing to the variables involved. Please ask us via the Contact Us link on this page for more information for those formats.
