    Smart idea with the 50% upfront local and 100% for out of state. But unfortunately this will turn away allot of work. That's just the way it is as most are full payment when they are done. The other thing is 6-7 week turn around is fine but if your good and the $65 deer is ready to mount you may want to put a disclaimer in there stating that if you get to busy that may change at your discretion. Just out of curriosity how is paying upfromt increase your turn around time??
     
  8. Well, it's just easier that if when we are done with an order we don't have to wait on a payment or if we can't get in touch with a client. As soon as we get done we just pack them back up and ship them out.
