AcornPipe has an upfront cost of US$370 and comes on a USB flash drive along with a USB security key with an initial 100 drawing counts. The security key supports multiple users on the same network.
Additional drawing counts (minimum order 100) can be purchased for US$1.25per count. Larger purchases qualify for bonus drawings as follows:
- 500 Gives a 5% bonus
- 1000 Gives a 10% bonus
- 2000 Gives a 20% bonus
- 3000 Gives a 30% bonus
- 4000 Gives a 40% bonus
- 5000 Gives a 50% bonus
So if you order 5000 counts, the cost is $6250,
and you actually receive 7500 counts,
resulting in a unit cost of about 83 cents.
You can draw without using up any counts provided you don't save the drawing. If you do save a drawing, it costs one count, then you can continue tomake modifications and repeatedly resave that drawing for 45 days. After that, you can make changes at no charge, but if you add or remove more than four items,
a drawing count will be charged, then you can make unlimited changes for an additional 45 days at no charge.
To order additional drawings, select "Help/Program/More Drawings". Click on "Copy Existing Values" and paste into an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with details of your order.
