Darn. My company has blocked all video's while on the network. I guess I'll have to view them tonight while I'm on my time, not their time.

I'm just getting into the heat pressing designs aspect of decoration. This really helps me with pricing! I was breaking it down to sq. in. cost to figure pricing...But this makes more sense! Thanks for taking the time to spell it all out for us!!! It is appreciated.

PS~I got the Eco Film and sample pack from you today and can't wait to get started! Your outside the box applications already gave me a cool idea for a design using materials from the sample pack!

Thanks for the feedback.

If anything price off on linear inch instead of square inch. Square inch pricing just doesn't account for waste and assumes a scenario where all material is utilized and this isn't the case a lot of times.

Good luck with your new venture!
