All letterhead bids need to have a deadline for approval, regardless of what the client may tell you. I learned that when starting out with Nationals. You think they took another bid, blew you off, whatever, then bam, 6 months later you get an order for a bid approval. I had a few that I didn't even remember. Anyway, after a handful of those we noted deadlines for approval. Some would still try and slide a job in and we would notify them of price increases if there were any. Protect yourself.
