When you do something for a long time you tend to get immune to the process. In some ways it almost becomes automatic especially when it comes to a product or service you provide. As a sales and manufacturing company you can’t have one with out the other.
If you have a great product and a mediocre sales force you might not sell as much. If you have a great sales team with a sub par product eventually people will buy from someone else.
For us at Thats Great News it’s always been important that we have kept our teams together. What I mean is we do not outsource our product and we have our sales team and manufacturing team all under one roof. We think this brings about a continuity in the process and friendly competition which allows us to stay a little bit ahead of the competition.
Let’s face it there are a lot of places who offer a service to frame magazine or newspaper articles. We think our product is top notch and we where reminded this with a photo sent to us recently from one of our repeat customers.
Before we get into the customer I want to share a famous quote which I think summarizes how we feel about our product.
“When you’re a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you’re not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You’ll know it’s there, so you’re going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.” Steve Jobs
To receive a photo to remind us that our product is on the walls of our customers and that first impressions mean everything we wanted to go through our process and how each product is custom made.
Every plaque is handcrafted by our designers using the industries latest state-of-the-art equipment. Here is the process each and every magazine and newspaper article goes through to create a custom framed article plaque.
- We take your actual article print it on one of our substrates. 99% of the time we have the article in house and do not need you to send in the material. We have a subscription library of thousands publications.
- After we matte your article we mount it to one of our custom plaques to your color choice to match your decor.
- Outside edges are then beveled and trimmed to give your article a picture frame effect.
- In addition to professionally framing your article we leave the bottom larger space than the top or sides to give room for a beautiful custom engraved nameplate.
