I think we're missing something. We are trying to set up mat prices in Lifesaver. It seems to be set up to use the formula cost of material X markup = price. We use more (material x markup) + labor= price where labor does not increase at the same rate as the amount of material used. For example- if we were cutting a 16 x 20 out of a $10 matboard with a 2.5x markup plus $5 labor we get $11.25 retail. To get that same price using the Lifesaver method (as I understand it) you need a 4.5x markup on the material. Now suppose you have a 32 x 40 mat using the full sheet. Our price would be $25 for the material + $7.50 for labor (because it doesn't take much more labor to cut the larger size)= $32.50. Using their formula, the price is $10 x 4.5 = $45.00. That's nearly 40% higher all because it doesn't take 4x the labor to cut the 32 x 40. The difference becomes more exaggerated as you use more expensive matboard. Where are we going wrong? How do you fix this?
