At our agency, we bill clients for in-house color laser printing. Clients are charged for any color printouts over the course of a project's design and layout. This charge has been around for as long as I can remember, but I have heard client complaints about it recently. I am curious if other agencies are still charing for this. Is this something your agency bills to a client?

Yes, we bill our clients for this. We bill $1/color printout. I'd be curious to hear how other agencies deal with this and if they charge their clients, what they charge.

For us, we just quote in a budget on all jobs for these type of expenses/materials in the quote but it is not broken out. We feel this is our "cost of goods". This way, we cover costs but  it's invisible to the client. I could see where the client might want to manage it if you make it a line item. They'll want to police "printing in excess" or over charging in the way you are billing them.
