Depends. Minimum is 2 hours, they charge around $350 on weekdays (for 2 hours), more on weekends. Extra charge if:

-they want to extend for another hour, two, three, etc.
-double prints
-going up stairs
-event is past your radius/vicinity
-idk what else

There is always a gig on the weekends, so even if you have a slow week, you will get something on Saturday. Busier during the summer and holiday season as well. We're actually one of the cheaper ones, lol.

take a leave of absense at work and run up to the bay area with Christie's while shie's preggers, save you money for your own, hire miles, noobie, and the dangles to run them for you.
