    I'm asking how as a group how you want this survey broken down.

    Your choices are:

    4 ply Rag
    Fabric standard
    Fabric Handwrapped

    Pick 4

    Feel free to make up your own list and post them here. I shall consider suggestions.

    It may sound silly, but how about listing an actual code number as an example of what you are discussing -- perhaps one BB & one C that are similarly priced for each section. There are so so many cost ranges on mat board these days, it might be more accurate.

    Yes....Indeed. For those that use a POS program it prices those subtle cost differences on every range. With our previous paper pricing method we tended to lump mat board into family groups, so by specifying specific brand and numbers, it will make the statistics more valid.

    I thank every one for suggestions I will seriously consider a survey by number. It makes sense.

    This is where the Decor survey fails me. How do I know where I stand when I don't know EXACTLY which moulding, mat, glass, back etc.

    I totally agree on the Decor survey -- For example, there is quite a bit of price differences on 1" wide typical wood mouldings. I hope Decor is watching! Sorry for the Frankenthread.

    I really like you doing these survey's framer and would like to enlist the help of the motivation experts out there to help get more people to partake.

    OK how about,

    1. Cresent number like 1613
    2. Bainbridge number like 8525
    3. Rising 4ply 32 x 40 r606
    4. Cresent Brightcore BR14987
    5. Bainbridge paper mat 65
    6. Cresent Moorman Fabric 7568
    7. Bainbridge Alphamat Black Sable Core 8319
    8. Custom 4ply rag fabric wrapped, using 12.00 per yard fabric.

    I'm going to ask for three sizes.

    8 x 10 w/ 1 - 4 x 6 opening
    16 x 20 w/ 1 - 12 x 16 opening
    24 x 36 w/ 1 - 18 x 30 opening

    9. Question will be the charge for extra openings in mat.

    Unless I hear complains I'll post this later today.
