- Choose our in-stock material mouldings which we offer at discounts from 20-75% from retail even if you only order one piece. Special orders are inefficient as they consume time, purchasing costs, packaging material waste, and transportation costs and fuel, and will delay your order.
- Quantity of order: if you need multiples in the same specifications, especially if uniform sizes, labor savings will directly result in increased discounts
- Even if you have a range of styles and designs, we will consider enhanced discounts for example if you bring us 10 or more pieces in one project
Materials Optimization – Standard Sizes Equals more savings
Frame materials typically come in standard sizes. Therefore, designing your work into those sizes will result in lower pricing due to improved materials utilization. This is especially important when designing volume projects.
For example, if you order frames that are 17 x 21, you can only get two mats from a sheet of 32 x 40″ whereas 16 x 20 frames yield four sheets per mat board. Although the labor may be the same, materials costs are reduced, and there is less waste, therefore we are able to pass the savings on to you.
