A client who worked for an organisation that provides support for small businesses asked me what it would cost to print 50 circular magnets.

Me: I’m afraid the minimum order is for 100 magnets, and would cost $__.

Client: Could you do a mock-up for me to show my boss?  

I don’t normally create custom mock-ups without an order being placed. However I decided to do it in this case due to some previous interactions with this person on social media. When it was done, they wrote back:

Client: Super, thanks. I’ll have to price around to compare but then I’ll get back on to you.

I couldn’t believe that an organisation that is supposed to support small businesses would ask for unpaid work.

Even worse, I presume they showed those competitors my mock-up to communicate what they wanted.
