Fabrication and Business Practices

The next opportunity to enroll at AIID will be on July 9th, when we begin Fabrication and Business Practices (ID008). Join us as we learn how to properly measure, calculate, and estimate materials and labor costs for window treatments, bed treatments, upholstery & case goods, wall covering, trims, moldings and mirrors, carpeting, and hard surface flooring. We will learn to distinguish between wholesale and retail prices as well as how to manage profit margins, freight costs, and sales tax. We will practice generating basic business documents, including invoices, purchase orders, and work orders, all of which are essential to the sale and order of interior goods and furnishings. We will also learn to document the calculation of prices by the use of formula worksheets. These business practices are taught in conjunction with the principles of business: maintaining a profit, wholesale versus retail pricing, freight and delivery procedures, and their associated costs and charges.
