No, seriously. I'd do some sample pages and a quote for each way, label them just like that and let management choose the option they prefer and are willing to pay for. That avoids the potential for either having them complain while I'm working because I'm spending too much time and money doing things they don't care about or having them complain after I'm done because they had expected a more polished version and would have been willing to pay for it had they been asked.
