    I was trying to come up with a Statement to go on a :) order form to protect myself from being responsable for replacing a hide or fur due to slippage or being rotten in the first place. Do you guys use these and can you please let me know what they read so I can come up with something. Yes I already tried the orange search button.

    Thanx for your help, RJ

    Heres how I worded it in my contract:

    Due to harvesting conditions beyond our control Back Creek Taxidermy will not be responsible for bad tanning results which may also include hair slippage due to bacteria growth. We reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions in order to complete your mount. If this results in additional charges, you will be notified before any changes begin.

    Hope this helps, EJ

    There was one on the old forum, a whole contract and work order that you could copy and print. I have a copy of it but it should be at the old forum some where. If you can't find it let me know and I can try and email it to you. Covered everything from slippage to lost hides and what not.

    Thanx for the help that some of you have given me. I just needed a guideline to go by to make one up and now have received that from a few of you.

    Thanx again, RJ
