A Secret Weapon to Saving Money & Increasing Your Profits

Welcome to my blog on printmaking and arts marketing.

A secret weapon to saving money and increasing your profits in your printmaking practice is to always get three quotes.

Yesterday a client purchased two prints and wanted them framed but did not how to go about it. I asked what his budget was and I proceeded to obtain three quotes from local framers.

The following prices were quoted.

  • Framer no # 1: $115.00 each
  • Framer no # 2: $147.00 each
  • Framer no# 3. $141.15 each
All three framers quoted on the same type of frame mould, glass, and mat board.

I was able to make a greater profit as I knew the budget my client had to spend. 

To your printmaking success,
