Murals

How much does an original mural cost? Murals can generally range from $15–35* per square foot depending on the complexity and detailing required for the mural, as well as, the location, specialty equipment and travel time are taken into consideration for the quote. The quote is based on an already prepped wall (i.e. cleaned, primed and base-coated) that is free of any obstacles. How does the process work? I will arrange a meeting with you to listen to your ideas and concepts before putting together a design. Three rough sketches are presented before a detailed sketch is submitted. A detailed sketch is included with your mural quote, however, if a client would like to have multiple detailed sketches and requires multiple changes and updates, client will be charged by the hour. Before starting your project and providing a detailed sketch, a signed contract and 1/3 deposit of the total cost will be due to start the project. The 1/3 deposit is used to purchase the supplies needed in order to execute the mural. Please note that exterior murals require consistent above 50 degree weather and protection from rain. For estimates, please call (425) 772-0403 or email gallery@bherdstudios.com. View a sampling of completed murals by John Osgood. Past Commissions
