Mural Pricing:

Murals can generally range from $20 – $50* per square foot depending on the complexity and detailing required for the mural, as well as, the location of the mural, 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. Walls that are not prepped will include extra labor charges.

Our team will arrange a meeting with you to listen to your ideas and concepts before putting together a design. The artists will provide up to 3 rough sketches 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, a $50 per hour charge will be associated with the multiple sketches.

Before starting your project and providing a detailed sketch, a signed contract and 1/3 deposit of the total cost will be requested. 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 + protection from rain.

*Some quotes may be higher if detailing is very complex. Smaller projects under 150 sq/ft are quoted by an hourly rate and rate varies on the mural artist you are working with.

Complexity of Design

Typically our murals are created with aerosol and if the mural does not require detailed brush work, it would not be considered complex. Complexity comes with very fine details or font work which require a lot of hand painting and taping. Most large scale pieces are actually visually striking without using finer complex details and we can work with clients on creating a design this way.

Working within the Clients Budget

We have a passion for the work that we do and love working with clients on ways to stay within a client’s budget. For instance if you have a large wall, but a small budget, we can work with you on designing elements that will not fill the whole wall, but will make it look full through design elements and large graphic shapes using all aerosol. Let us help you find a solution that works!

Minimum Mural Fee

Having over a decade of experience with mural commissions, we have found that there is a minimum amount of hours that go into the design and execution process that does not calculate out for us on small wall sizes which is why we have a minimum mural fee of $3500. In case by case instances, the artists can work on smaller projects by an hourly rate.

Image Licensing or Buying the Image Rights

This comes up once in a while where a client asks to either license or buy the rights to the image from the commission to use for sale on products. It is rare that a client would request this, but we have experience with this and we can discuss on a case by case basis.


If you are new to hiring an artist to custom design a mural or painting, it is helpful to know how the process works. As an example, we had a client who wanted a colorful geometric color block design with a native bird and something that adds a humorous element to it. Below are examples of the sketched ideas:

The next step after the client selects the sketch that they prefer, the artist then refines the design based on the clients feedback. In this case, the client wanted to remove the mountain and log that were in the initial design and requested the bird move down in the composition. Below is an example of the refined mock up:

Refined mock up and last step in the design process before installing the mural.

After the client approves the final design, the next step is the installation of the mural, ordering supplies based on the color schemes, etc. Our team takes time to explain to clients that the mock up does not look exactly like the mural, there are nuances to paint application and brush & aerosol work that change the feel and look of the finished mural. Below is an example of the finished mural:
