Are you an artist who paints murals? Then you should be using a proper proposal/price template. Maria Brophy has the perfect solution for you.
In this packet, you'll receive:
1 - Wall mural proposal template that you can use again and again, with the perfect language and look that will impress your client and get you paid
2 - Explanation of how to use the wall mural proposal and tips on how to keep your client happy
3 - A sample price sheet with a pricing structure (complete with our own mural pricing that you can use as your guide)
This package solves all of your worries about how much to charge and what should be included in your price!
Maria has been pricing and writing mural proposals for almost two decades. She figured it out for you- all you have to do is plug in your info!
Maria says: I put this package together to help artists ACTUALLY make money doing what they love; painting murals. My promise to you; this proposal template and explanation will make your job easier as a mural artist.
In this package, I share with you the following insider secrets to mural painting:
- How much money you should charge, and what I'm charging!
- I give you all my pricing in a structure that lays out different prices for different sizes - it's in a word doc, so you can make changes to the price sheet for your own use
- I explain what limits you should have in your proposal to keep your client from making too many changes on the sketches or from changing the scope of the work
- Payment schedule to ensure that you get paid up front and on time!
- Tips on how to close the mural deal
You may wonder why this package costs what it does instead of $29 or $49. For one reason, It took me years of hard work and trial and error to develop this system and proposal language. It wouldn’t be fair to give it away. Just as your art is valuable, my information is valuable.
But, the more important reason that it's priced the way it is: because I only want serious muralists. A committed entrepreneur invests in their career. Someone who is willing to invest in themselves is one who will take the information and use it and prosper from it.
This gave me direction

I was asked to paint a mural for a school but was told to submit a proposal. This is my first time. I had no idea how to start and how to price. The person I charge of the grant had not idea either.
I was able to use the information in the proposal and pricing template as tweaked it for my needs.

I had never done a mural before, so I had a lot to figure out in addition to the proposal. This template helped me immensely, and I did get the job! It's 37' x 15', inside of a children's tutoring center. Being able to use this gave me the time to do inspiration research to put together for the client, so by the time I started sketching, it was easy to put together different ideas. It was worth it, thanks Maria for making this available!
Price sheet was a huge help

I was successful in bidding for a mural - I got the job! Your price sheet was a huge help. It was very scary asking for the big $$$, but it was professional, approachable, easy to understand for the client and I
was able to successfully process their payments
with my square for each scheduled payment.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge- your book is
on my list of to-do's.
most professional proposal template ever

Thank you for putting together such an in-depth and professional proposal that covers details I would not have thought of. This would have taken me a long time to do on my own, and I would not have been as thorough. Being able to just put in my own information so easily made this purchase a wonderful investment for my business.
Helped my Career

Hi Maria. I first read your mural pricing info five years ago, and it was extremely helpful to me in developing my own pricing chart. It gave me the courage to have a minimum project fee and to post my mural pricing online. Thank you for doing what you do to help artists with the business side of things.
I got the job!

I recently bought Maria's proposal template for mural art and was able to land my first big wall mural art gig! They chose me out of 7 artists they interviewed.
Maria gave me great ideas about how to price the wall murals. Just wanted to say thank you!
I was hired to do three full-room wrap around murals for a house converting into a preschool. All this done in one month. :)
It got me a job!

The proposal I purchased is very thorough and straight forward. It was easy to read as well as easy to edit. I was able to just fine tune it to the way I liked it without doing much heavy lifting. As soon as I was done I sent it out to a possible opportunity to paint a mural. In short I got the commission. So overall very effective. Thank you so much for your help because the bottom line is that I am an artist not a writer, and its sites like this that really help us out in creating the dream life that us artists are trying to achieve.
Helped me figure out what to charge for my murals!

For someone who has never known what to charge for their work, your mural proposal template and price list are priceless. Thank you!!!

This mural proposal and pricing template package has been invaluable in preparing to re-launch my mural business. In the past, I've never known what to charge for my work; consequently, I've practically given away my murals (and my other artwork). I would recommend the purchase of this package to any artist who has had difficulty in the past pricing murals and coming up with a clear, precise proposal/contract of what clients can expect from the artist and what the artist expects from the client. Thank you for making this information available!
