A new sub-forum titled: Trade Mag Comments and business issues. This would cover stuff like Chris mentions, and the domain that Bob, Rob, Jay, Marc G and JRB FG, AL and MM (and the like) speak so well on. HOWEVER, something I have always wanted to see it an area that makes comment on the current trade magazine articles. Forinstance (one word): When a mag has a "frame of the month", or a "you framed what", and then lists the materials and price charged, I throw the mag on the ground and say, "No freak'n way." I think discussions where we can price out a item that we all see the same specs on every month will be a good lesson in pricing. As well as bringing to the attention articles and advertisements that provoke praise or ridicule or controversy (or all three). I think The Picture Framers Grumble is the right place for this as it is not a subsidiary or any of the mags. In this potential new forum, feel free to point out (the good and the bad) things PFM, Decor, ABN, AWN, or other Framing related trades. Howze that sound?
