    Interesting article in the Winter 2015 article.

    Thoughts?

    Rick, sounds like it's up to us to imagine the article. I'm thinking it should include the word 'bacon'.

    Do people not get ABN? It's free for those in the trade (includes frame shops).

    Apparently it's a little too controversial to appear in the free digital pages http://artbusinessnews.com/digital-editions/. It looks like you have to buy the issue to read it. I'm not sure how cool it would be for the writer to re-post the article here considering it seems to be classified as premium content. It looks like it's $0.99 for the current digital issue if anyone is interested and can afford it.

    I get the printed version, and yes, for free. Great article by Ed and I happen to agree with most of it.

    I totally agree with you on this Ed. I almost never ask for credit but will in very specific circumstances. Some issues may just be a handling issue where others could be a quality control problem. Some items I just don't buy since I know what to expect. I do business with a very limited number of suppliers and we have a very good relationship with one another. I only step outside of my comfort zone when one specific independent rep is involved.
