It is so much more comprehensive than any of the others I have tried.
I want to thank you for all of your hard work and for the incredible amount of invaluable information you offer to new and established embroiderers. You are amazing! I just had to drop you a quick line to let you know how thrilled I am having access to your How To Price Program! What a great program! I started my business in 2006 and believe me, I’ve done a lot of research over the years.
Once we moved out of our home into a retail location, things changed dramatically. I have sat in on several classes over the years on how to price embroidery. Each of them had their own twist, but basically, they all had the same information for the calculations, so when I saw your program, I figured that it was just more of the same information so I passed it over.
We have been struggling financially and it wasn’t until the gal that does my invoices told me for the 100th time that I was not charging enough, that I decided to take another look at it. I thought I knew the formula. Now that I have your program, I know how wrong I was! It is so much more comprehensive than any of the others I have tried.
Yes, the core of the calculations is the same, but the additional variables that absolutely MUST be taken into consideration are built right into the system! Once you put your information into the base program, it creates your price list for you! It is a tremendous tool! The videos that explain the system really simplify the entire process. It is well worth the investment!Cindy Proctor
