do 'snap services' cost?

Post by akl_mummy_07 » Fri Sep 28, 2007 1:11 pm

just curious if it costs to borrow snap presses or have someone else do the snaps,

and how does it work if someone else does it do you mark out where you want the snaps and provide the snaps?

I've only lent my snap press rather than doing it for someone and I haven't charged but other people may be different

You weren't the one at the FOE-acino on Wednesday were you?

There's lots of us who I'm sure could help you out.

I'm in Papakura too - I'm lending my snap press out to someone next week probably but maybe we should have a Snap-accino somewhere :D

I lent/hired my press out to someone once, she gave me $20 but i don't know what is 'normal' or 'standard'. Because I really didn't know her I asked for a bond equal to the cost of the press/dies if I had to replace it ($100 at the time) which she got back when I got my press back.
