I don't have any staff so I would have been doing it myself anyway Adrian, not a bad return for what you have had to do though. Have you charged a premium because it's a rush job and you had to work the weekend or would those be your normal rates?

Don't forget to post a picture of the completed job before the customer collects it.

On the plus side, all the money is yours :wink: I got a similar rush job in for exhibition signage, but I drafted in Mrs D to help, I had to make 4 8ft x 2ft signs by morning and there was no way I could've done it without some help (well other than staying in the workshop all night :-? )

As Martin said, be cool to see the finished work before it goes off to the exhibition :D

Cheers, Dewi

Dewi, I'm sure you'll find that Gordon Brown thinks some of it is his! Maybe as much as 40%. :(
