    I would like to make a prediction:

    "That's a good price...we will take 1 now and will probably need the others later..."

    Cynical as it sounds, I am +1 on the previous comments. I would guess you are not talking with the person who has PURCHASE authority. Push the envelope and ask for a meeting with the powers that will buy. Find out what they REALLY want and prove to them you can deliver the goods. One more thing, why are they not using their current vendor?

    Stouse would be able to do these no problem for you

    We used to get all excited when quotes like this came through the door, but it's usually just part of the "get 3 quotes" procedure and the customer already has a company in mind to do the work.

    ...and if you just ignore them you never even get the chance to become that company.
