RESULTS from previous TFG surveys: LINK TO RESULTS

Grumble surveys are purely for entertainment value, and to stimulate healthy/friendly discussion. Since the results only represent a relatively small group of participants, use them cautiously.

Thanks for participating, folks! The poll is closed, but discussion can continue.

What do you think?

How much of a deposit do you generally ask for, when new customers order framing?

08% No deposit due in advance (was 24% in 2004 survey)
01% ~25% (1/4) (3% in 2004 survey)
03% ~33% (1/3) (3% in 2004 survey)
70% ~50% (1/2) (63% in 2004 survey)
14% Full payment due in advance (3% in 2004 survey)
04% Variable deposit %, depending on dollar value of order (2% in 2004 survey)

It's interesting to see how these figures changed from 2004!
