Default fletching?

I'm new to the forum ,but would like to ask you guys a question concerning price for fletching a dozen crossbow bolts,I charged a guy at work 20 dollars to refletch,and reglue inserts and nocks, I supplied theveins (4 per bolt) and I'm going to have to make a 20 minute drive to buy 3 inserts that were completly missing from the shafts.
Does this seem like a fair price to you?

I reckon it would be fair specially having to drive fer parts also. My ? to you is why 4 vanes on the arrow/bolt. I've seen 2 and 3 fletch on them but never 4. I reckon none of the vanes go into arrow slot channel. They must lay up on top of rail, like when using 4 fletch on a vertical Bow.

Don't sound like nearly enough. I'd set a per fletch price if I were in the business of making them for others plus travel fees if necessary. But then I learned the hard way from reloading metallic cartridges for others. I'd buy the makins', work up loads, test them and load the cartridges and be lucky to get my investment back. Plus I'd have the leftovers to store until (if) they needed more. I quit when someone (a lawyer) accursed one of my cartridges of misfiring...even tho it had a primer unlike those I use. Guess whose cartridge it would have been had the misfire stuck in the barrel and he'd have blown up the gun?!!!

My local archery shop charges $2.00 per arrow to re-fletch an arrow.
