Saturday, February 07, 2004 Pricing Survey

We need your help, and hope you are willing to answer the Slipcover Pricing Survey 2004 for the Slipcover Network at

Since 1999, slipcover professionals have been networking together sharing and talking about their businesses across the USA and Canada online at The subject of pricing ones work has always been one of the top topics of discussion. In the Winter of 2000 the first committee of volunteers agreed to survey those who were in the business of Slipcovering and the results were the Summary of Slipcover Prices for 2000. Knowing that cost of living had risen, in 2002 another volunteer committee was united and a new survey was created with results being the Summary of Slipcover Prices for 2002. Now in 2004 to keep up to date with the economy, another volunteer committee has been formed to collect pricing information for 2004.

How will the survey help your business?

As you will note the survey covers two aspects of business; demographics of where you live, and actually pricing of the work that you do. The information you supply us is collected and tabulated into results from the questions and information you provide us. Though we do asked from business information, your business name will not be included in the results of the survey. So no one will know who you are, and what you are charging. You will however receive results of the survey which definitely should help with the pricing issue.

The survey has been designed to give guidelines as to what people are charging in certain parts of the country. Population size, resort community, or one type of industry where you live would have a big impact on who your customers are. Results will be tabulated in highs and lows with a medium range of pricing. So if you are below the lowest, then you may want to raise your prices, or higher than the highest then you are really doing something right!

Please note that only those in the business of Slipcovering, going to be in business, adding onto their business, will have access to the results of this survey. All who request the information collected from the survey must supply proof of being in business. The Summary of Slipcover Pricing will be copy written by the Slipcover Network, and will not be for publication by any other source. Those who have not participated in answering the survey and would like a summary copy mailed to them, will be charged a nominal fee of $5. You may also receive the summary online via a request to

Collecting Survey Information

3 wonderful volunteers have agreed to collect the information for the summary. They each are slipcover makers, have their own business, and live in different areas of North America. They will be happy to submit the survey to you via email, fax, by phone or snailmail and are hoping that you will return it to them completely answered by Feb 28, 2004. Results will be available to you by April 1, 2004. If you can help please call or email the volunteer in your area so she can get a survey to you.

Thank you so much for your time
