Visited with a fellow framer today who asked me about a particular moulding that he sells for about $19 and some cents per foot. I would sell it for about $29 per foot. Seems he had visited another framer who was selling it for $50 per foot. That's a wide variety of markup. I buy footage and chop and have always marked up from chop price regardless of how I buy a particular moulding. This way I am covered either way. How do grumblers mark up moulding? Do most of you mark up off chop or length, or differently depending on how you buy. The particular framer I spoke with marks 3 times length on cost up to $5, 2.5 on length $5 to $10 and 2.1 on length above $10. He never buys chop. My interest is sparked partly by the fact that my business is flat (way off all year) while his is going gangbusters. Now I'm have doubts about everything I've been doing all these years and wondering if I should rethink everything.
