Thumbs down Color change during a job

Is it typical to charge a customer for a new screen ($) + film ($) + fee ($) when doing a color change?

I.E. When a customer has a job that has two colors (lets say black and red) and they want to change one color (black) to another (purple).

Yes, it is usually just an ink change fee to cover the time/materials it takes to clean up the ink, and add the other color. The screen doesn't leave the press, so there shouldn't be another setup or film fee.

For a color change, you will be charged a fee to clean and reload each color for each design.

Films and screen fees to change colors is not normal. Films and screens should only be charged once (besides your re-order).

We just finished a job with 12, count em- TWELVE color changes on 200 shirts front and back. Talk about a major PITA!!!!! All day job. Customer was charged accordingly, but it could have been more- rush job.
