  1. Started doing work for a local dry cleaner (10 miles away) around 3 years ago & been fine. We do a 10% discount & they charge 10% more than our prices. All depends on the people you work with i find, if i don't like them i won't work with them. Simple but effective for me. He gets 20% for being a middle man & is happy with that. We have a good working relationship. Once the price & details where sorted out we had him in the shop for a day to see what to look for when a customer brings in a pair of shoes. Also so he can see the amount of work that goes into some repairs. So it save us calling them, to call the customer about a extra charge for build up for example. If there has been an issue we're sorted out quickly & respectively. As for example last week we had a "return" of a zip repair on a a riding boot, the right boot, from a couple of weeks ago. The zip repair was terrible, zip not straight, brown zip with a black runner, wrong colour stitching thread, not using the original holes when restitching ect ect. The main problem we had is that we repaired the left boot zip not the right. We take pictures of before & after repairs so we just forwarded the picture of the left boot. We got a phone call from the dry cleaner to minutes later saying exactly what he thought but he couldn't prove it. I explained we take photo's for this exact reason & in future that's what he's going to do to save sending bits back & wasting both our time. (Side note we got to redo the job on right boot to put it right, the customer suddenly remember that the had the other boot repair a few years ago from someone else...) I did also had another dry cleaners i did work for about a year on the same deal. Lovely people but had a few problems with drop offs & time scales, i.e i need a full leather sole repair & expecting it done in half hour. So we parted ways. If another local dry cleaner was to ask i would consider it.

    have you got a machine to cut to code? Looks to be a silca ro20 cuts 1242 to my eye. Measure their key heights & make a note for the future.

    Miracle A9

    I don't have instacode. I use Silva for other machines to get the heights for cutting by code. Then search for the blank on the machine to get the key card for the a9, then put the heights in. This doesn't work 100% of the time but good enough system. Really should pull the finger out & get instacode as I've had the machine for some years now I would always say go to a show or call the reps from different companies so you can gets a feel for a machine before you get purchase one. If your new to it as well I would see if they will train you a bit on the machine so you can get the most out off your investment
