Pricing varies from location to location and availability of materials and quality of materials and on and on. ...Basically it is what you are worth. if you can buy your materials and you are the only worker then just add what you are happy to take home.

paint cost (5 gal) $50- 80
coverage of paint is about 350 lf per gal (1750 lf per 5)
so basically you got to charge about so much just to cover the paint cost plus labor plus other misc expenses.
My lines are per foot, stencils is more for time.

For example below..........(based on 4" lines)
( spots are 9'x18" ) so 21 x 36' = 756'
Handi spot 2 x 9' = 18'
Long line between spots 2 x 90' = 180'
Hatch Marks 1 x 15' = 15' Total lin ft = 969 ft of line @ ( your price .14/.18/.20/? per ft) ( so you need 3 gallons of paint / $ 50.00 cost of paint)
add the H/C stencil ( Based on time ) $25/$35/ ? )

That's how I figure out quotes. ( I also have a minimum price, so if less then Minimum, I charge the Minimum price.) $ 250/$300/ ? )
Hope this helps !!
