So everyone else is loosing hundreds doing them, yea whatever. every time you say doing 'x' @ 60.00 per hour that is your profit. Its you wage you are charging yourself. Its not a cost its in the black column. Realistic? in whose world no one is even coming close to those numbers and they are making money. People are asking to take those away from those who don't want to do them for less willingly. plenty I shop around for quality and price. I think you nailed it with you have good clients. You better hope they don't ever find out about this place and the taxidermists that charge up to 2/3 less and do quality work. More power to you I guess if you can.
