COMMERCIAL GAME TANNERY
Due to an incredibly high demand the current wait for your skin should be tanned within twelve to twenty weeks, but this can vary seasonally. Extra time may be required for large-bodied animals like cattle, or thick-skinned game like Tahr. An express service can be provided for an additional 45%.
The total cost for your skin will vary depending on its size and the condition it arrives in.
This list can be used as a guide to work out the rough cost of your job. There may be additional charges for skins which require extra work, for example, those that are heavily soiled, poorly skinned or have excessive holes. All skins are measured and priced when they arrive raw. they may be slightly smaller once finished due to trimming and tidying.
For big game, the smaller figure is the minimum price for an animal of its species, while the higher figure is the maximum.
