To Buy or Not To Buy - Unpacked.
Buying in bulk makes commercial sense. Does it work, though, for those of us with a small business or those simply framing our own work? Having bought some of the fitting materials in larger amounts (cord, D-rings, screws, handywrap etc), I could see the sense in cutting down costs on materials. The next area for savings could be mouldings. But of course we all know there are a few problems with bulk purchases: minimum orders, buying by the pack, trade references, deliveries etc.
The thought of ordering moulding packs purely to store most of it in quite cold and damp conditions worried me. What if I don’t use it up quickly enough? Huge amounts of warped, unusable material? Then I analysed the situation a bit more closely. Clearly, there is a way of using a “moulding packs ordering system” to your advantage.
With an even wider range of profiles on their way from DIYframing, it makes even more sense to look at this option. To see how it all pans out, click: Ordering, Unpacked
