Okay so I am aware that prices and such cannot be discussed.. but I think/hope this can. haha
I am scanning a "massive" (in my opinion) amount of documents for a customer who wants them in PDF format on a DVD.
I told him $x/hr, which was fine.
What I have noticed, however, is that this is indeed a VERY long process.
I have an autofeeder, but it still takes time to scan each page, then to wrok with the PDF and save each file individually... and then having to deal with the occasional paper jam.
I feel "wrong" to be charging an hour. An hour of scanning doesn't actually occupy an hour of my time... it's at the computer, I am here available to do other things and regularly pause to take care of whatever is needed. Should I continue to just work out how many hours it took to scan, and charge the $x/hr, or calculate the cost another way?
