Note: Additional charges for more than one section per slide are necessary to cover the labor cost of cutting and maneuvering additional sections onto a single slide when multiple sections cannot be picked up as a continuous portion of a single ribbon, for example, sections cut from different blocks, or sections that are too large for more than one section to fit on the slide. Multiple sections that can be picked up as a continuous portion of the same ribbon with no additional manipulation are charged as single sections.
