    Re: mark up on lining

    I would suggest you calculate the cost to you multiplied by 2.5.

      Re: mark up on lining

      Hi Phillip thanks for your reply ,however maybe the sun is affecting the brain?
      Do mean that if I purchase the lining @ £2.34 then the price to the customer is 2.5 times this price? Ie £5.85.

      I have told the customer that I can get a very good price for the lining .

            I suggested using this calculation based on you buying in at trade price - I sell linings on at £3.99 to £4.99 a metre to private customers and your lining mark-up should bring in a good profit.

            Where do you buy your linings?

                  M&D sell some very competitive linings and are excellent for those who don't have trade accounts with companies such as Evans Textiles, but as you're selling in you must mark it up. You could consider £3.49 or £3.99 for your made to measure client orders assuming you're using a good lining. Are you using a 100% cotton sateen or a poly cotton?

                    I am using Sateen poly/cotton 48/52 for heavy tapestry curtains as the customer wanted a lighter weight lining.

                    For the bedrooms the customer wants heavier weight lining as the fabric is lighter. 100% cotton sateen .
