Excellent question. If a shopper buys one or more of his unframed
prints, a single shipping charge of $15 will be added to their cart.

If they buy framed prints, each has its own shipping cost, which would
be added separately.

But would be added to every order, right? If so, not what we need (which
is why you asked, huh?)

ah; thanks, Mark. perhaps some sandboxing is in order. I've also asked
the client how *he* sees it happening, 'cause he understands that it's a
process question to some degree, not just a technical question.
