  • How Much?

    I have verbally quoted and just putting in writing a quote for a (sheer) unlined Roman Blind. I have quoted £75 for a blind 170cm wide x 105cm long. It will be with customers own fabric which I already have. Just as I was putting this in writing, it suddenly crossed my mind that this is a lot of money? I make unlined blinds so infrequently, that I just annually up the price a bit, in line with everything else, and not really give it a lot of thought. Do you think I have overpriced? I do not have to join the fabric as we have agreed to railroad. She gave me the fabric straight away, it is just me wondering if its too much. Although I do have to get special bits and pieces in for it, as it is sheer? What do you think?

    It sounds fine to me. A sheer fabric is a specialist fabric to handle anyway, so it takes longer/needs more skill! Attaching a lining is a small part of making a roman.

      Sounds fine to me too. Even without joins, being a sheer fabric, it's going to be tricky to make. The client must have been happy with the verbal quote otherwise she wouldn't have given you the why reduce your price?
