well we like to deal customers on a more personal level! if people are only concerned with what it costs we don't want them as a customer! We are doing 400-450 pieces a year, so no not worried about loosing work because my prices aren't on my site seems to have no affect on my work load. It also takes a lot of time to keep up with all of that on a site. We do have printed price list That we mail to people that are interested in what we do, not just price shopping. We have higher than average prices because we do way higher than average work! That was a great question! Thank you hope this helps

You hit the nail on the head with the personal connection. I've only worked with two taxidermists and both did great work as well as spent a lot of time walking me through what to do in certain situations to take care of the animal and get what I want from it. To me great work and shared knowledge means a lot and adds value.

I'm sorry, but I laughed out loud when I read this...considering the fact that I was more than willing to pay whatever your price was but when I asked for a reference picture (or even the name of someone who had prior mount) you told me you "just didn't want to deal with it."

That doesn't sound to me like someone who wants to deal with people on a "personal level."
