I have talked to many of the people that chose to pay the extra to get the
Most of those people did it simply for the convenience. A reason often
sited was "my time is worth more than that" amount of money. I will stress
that if a submitter wishes to use the resources (consulting, books, forms,
heraldic artists) and fill out all the forms and turn them in at the table
the cost is the standard $9. I know that outside of the
consulting/submissions tables, I will often help the client by copying and
coloring the forms for no extra charge, that is easy to do when it is
one-on-one. Not so easy when you get 28 submissions, or 82 as we did at
ATYC, in just a few hours.
The "convenience charge" goes into the heraldic funds to help prevent the
need to up the standard submissions fee.
