    Rather than having a customer view the supply catalog wouldn't it make more sense to have photos of mounts in a photo album to look at? I know it will take work and time to assemble all this but if you do it as you complete each different mount and add to the book eventually they will not need to look at the supply catalog. Or am I oversimplifying this with logic?! Most taxidermists I talk to only do a few different positions of any mammal or bird they mount anyway. How many do they really need to look at anyway?

    I don't understand why this matters. Your customers should be coming to you because they like your work, not because of what the materials cost you. If they piss and moan about prices, maybe they aren't the customers for me. We all pay the same for materials and can all order from the same suppliers.

    Personally I like the prices there instead of cross referencing. My mechanic lists his parts separately from his labor & I don't sit there thinking 'hmmm..... $40 in parts $200 in labor'.

    Them being able to see my prices doesn't bother me either. I like to break things down for people because they know they aren't getting screwed. Granted I don't do this for every mount but if something special is needed, I like to tell them this is how much the parts are, shipping and my labor. Good customers understand that you are there to make money and they don't mind paying. I believe it builds trust with them. If they want to belly ache about me making a profit then they can go else where.

    The code is the price.

    I agree. Ive been showing customers pose examples in catalogs for 20 plus years and never once had anyone comment on cost.

    Love it. I'm so tired of my customers looking at a catalog they found and asking me about the price and my mark up of items. I really mind it if they understood why I have a mark up but then again I'm sure they ask their mechanic the same thing.....
