We hope that this overview has helped to clarify some of the design issues that are important when installing EL wire on a coat or vest. Please see this page for more information and other limitations related to EL wire.
EL wire designs are priced based on the amount of wire being used, the complexity of the design, the method used to mount it on fabric, and whether you want a steady glowing effect or some sort of animated pattern. As a rough estimate, most projects will be in the range of $10 to $20 per foot of wire.
The simplest designs shown on this page (such as a single outline on a suit collar) would start around $100-$200.
More elaborate designs, with lot of fine detail, would be in the range of $500-$1000 or more.
