Re: Am I retail orc manufacturing!?

Soooo.... My understanding is my customers shouldn't be "clicking & collecting" from my Workshop as it would mean they were leaving their homes on a "non essential journey"? (Exceptions to this could be Artists/Interior Designers etc collecting work for Business purposes - I guess?) But, here's the ...

Re: Jumbo Foam Board

Gutted! Just had a call from Wessex to say they won't deliver jumbo foam board this far North (Aberdeenshire) as they'd need to use a Courier, which they deem unreliable, and would expect damage to packages. Why is this issue with Couriers not being dealt with? If the Couriers had to pay compensatio...

Re: Jumbo Foam Board

Thanks Mark Funnily enough, I had the Wessex website up on my laptop when I posted yesterday as I was going to try them but couldn't remember my password! However, today is a new day, and remembered it straight away, and I still have an account with them, although it's been years since I ordered. Re...

Thanks John. :shock: Well if I was a tad hesitant before.... now I'm terrified!! :sweating: Hey, what's the worst that could happen? I assume the answer is losing all my customer data.

Re: Estlite Query

Happy to be your Guinea Pig John as long as you realise I'm a bit of a technophobe, so you may live to regret the offer!! Would this mean I could also delete duplicate/dead customers? ( both dead dead, and dead, never going to see them again for various reasons :D ) I feel my Estlite has become clut...

Re: Pricing job + UV protective acrylic....

Thanks guys for taking the time to help with pricing. As a very rough guide, my understanding is, if you take in a material and sell straight on, then mark up 100%. Obviously if you do any work on it, the mark up will increase. I just find it hard to imagine charging £400+ for the acrylic alone, but...

Pricing job + UV protective acrylic....

Hi all, I have a new customer asking for an estimate for a high value (£600) large print 125cm x 75cm. It will need an Artcare Jumbo window mount, (making it glass size 145 x 95) and will be hinged to 5mm archival foam core board. He wants a black frame @ £4.80m. Now here is where I am struggling. T...

Re: Framing high value artwork

This has just reminded me of when I framed a photograph that was to be a surprise for the Queen ( she didn't know this copy existed) It was one of 5, 2 of which had 'disappeared', so this was 1 of only 3 left. I had to 'sign it in' and didn't tell a soul I had it. I woke up in the middle of the nigh...

Plexi Supplier with stock - UK?

Hi, I've just had my plexiglass order, placed on 17th May from The Plastic People (Barkston Plastics) cancelled due to them running out of stock. Does anyone know of a Company in the UK that has stock available, and able to supply this month? If I can't get hold of any for a screen, I'll probably ha...
