Plotting prices are by linear foot, meaning that one linear foot is the minimum unit of measurement used to calculate the length—and therefore the price—of the plot. Price breaks are given for common in-between sizes like 18×24, 20×30, 40×36. For more details please see the Extended Pricing List.

Light bond $2.00
