AS guy at work has a brother that is into photography. In March he is scheduled to put 24 pictures up at a local cafe/ bookstore. He has been looking around for some picture frames but so far he is looking at a grand for just the glass. The picture frames would be another 1000 bucks or so. Too much money for him, so he approached me.
My plate is kind of full with the house addition and snowmobiling this winter. I could take or leave the job, but would not even consider it if picture frame making was not profitable. He is not looking for anything fancy, but 16 x 24 picture frames, in glass, can get costly material wise.
I am leery about even giving this guy a quote as he has already checked around and is looking at low balling the cost. I would not need to get rich on this, but I don't want to lose money either...and I am really great at doing the latter.
Any thoughts on making picture frames for profitability?
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
