Based on conversations with reps, etc, it seems that most are going from cutting and joining their own mouldings, to either chop, or pre-joined. I've had 2 reps suggest to continue having them do the joins, however, being in sales, I can see how that ads to their bottom line. I'm looking to be able to offer a few package pricing mouldings in studio, and to sell online while increasing margins a bit. I realize that labour is more, and there's a waste factor, however, at the end of the day when factoring this in, the COG are simply much lower. Canvas bars by box, plus a very limited selection of basics. The rest, either chops, or joined on more complex items. It seems that cost of space may be a main driver, to house the equipment and stock. Could be wrong though. It also seems that if "most" people seem to be going the route of purchasing joined, am I missing something by doing the opposite and going towards chops, length, and some boxed when everyone else is switching to joined? What am I missing here? What are some of the main factors that had you switch? I'm not doing so to decrease prices, I'm doing so to get a better margin, and to be able to capture some commercial work, from people that simply do not purchase at retail.
