I've been doing this quite a while, but usually only put my cakes on the corrugated boards. I'm finding I'm getting more and more stacked cake orders and need some advice on this. I've done a few on thicker wooden boards that I've covered, but because I wasn't in the business, I didn't require deposits because they were friends or acquaintances, and it's been a pain getting them to return them. Now, I'm a licensed decorator and have my business open, so I can't see these boards just being "discardable" like the corrugated ones, kwim?

Do you require a deposit for return of the larger, thicker wood boards, or do you factor that into your price?

I want to do this the right way, but the most economical way as well. icon_smile.gif

Thanks in advance. icon_smile.gif

I'd say the answer is both, sort of, and the choice is basically the customer's...

if you charge a deposit for the board (preferrably cash), and it's never returned, then the customer has chosen to have the expense factored into the price of the cake!
