I find $2.50 per 5.5×11 and $3.25 per 7.25×12.5 to be a fair price. This is based on common 1×6 and 1×8 boards; add 50ยข each for clear boards (no knots). My calculation comes out to $1150 for 400 boards, 50% of each size. Shipping would be extra plus any sales tax. I’m not personally interested as I am retired and busy with my own projects, but if I were doing it, that is the price I would charge. I base this estimate on lumber from Lowes, but a local lumber yard may have a better quantity price.
