Overhead and Consumables Question

Hello ALL,

I am new to the forums and have a couple questions.

Bidding on a job that has consumables in the contract.
Do you add your profit and overhead to the consumables number?

Consumables or Customer Supplies

I buy almost all my customer supplies from AmazoBusiness.com. I can save the pdf invoice from AmazonBusiness and using a pdf program/software like Foxit Reader I can change the invoice to show a 15% markup/ordering/handling fee.
Example I save 1 customer about 1/2 of what they were spending for paper products from a local jan/san distributor and yes, I told the customer I was adding a small fee to each order.
