SPFG, Supreme Picture Framing God
Gosh, Paul, when I shopped our local Michaels store, their usual half-off price for framing with Masterpiece Glass was within about 15% of my retail price. They're not giving it away. 1/3 the price? Not a chance. My selling price is usually similar to their 50% Off price with comparable features, including optically coated, UV filtering glass.No Miller, I won't sell it and I won't recommend it. Because when I have to charge $200, and my customer discovers that Michaels' version is better, and about 1/3 the price, my customer is not coming back and will probably bad mouth me.
Where did you get the idea that Masterpiece Glass is better than Musem Glass? In the very best situation, it could be the same product. But since it comes off the same coating machine, how could it be better?
Your emotional response to this issue could only be destructive to your business. You are denying your customers a perfectly viable product -- one they often want to buy -- and denying yourself a larger profit on a larger sale. This seems irrational to me.
What brand of glass do you sell, by the way?
