Booming Business 2018
Actually since the end of 2017 the framing business has been booming. My order level has better than quadrupled which has created new challenges. Since I’m a one man shop and I take product quality serious, I’ve found myself in a quandary. Trying to keep up with orders, quality, and lead times.
Because of this huge increase in orders I’m having to temporarily let current and future customers know that my lead times have been extended. That extra lead time will depend of the current order level so I’m posting that exact information on all of my product pages right below the product name and number.
It will read something like this:
IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ: Because product quality is important and I want to do my best on every order the lead times for any new orders is three to five weeks beyond the standard lead time. This is only temporary as I catch up on a large increase of business.
As I’m able to complete more orders than this extended time line will be reduced.
Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to doing business with you. You’re always welcome to give me a call at 503-267-5923 with any questions.
Ten Year Business Anniversary – 2015
2015 is my 10th year in business with Solid Wood Frames by Jim. Officially I launched my original website February 5, 2005 and sold my first frame in March of 2005. The first website was started in early 2004 and took a little more than a year to complete.
That first website was coded by hand while at the same time I was fine tuning my frame building and finishing skills. Even today I am always trying new things to provide additional offerings, better customer service, and improve my processes to provide excellent products to my customers.
Much has changed in the past ten years and I excitedly look forward to the next ten with many more changes and improvements already on the horizon.
Register Today For a Discount – 2015
As one of many promotions planned to celebrate this huge milestone I’ve started offering a $10 discount coupon on just about any product on my website when you register by creating an account.
Simply click here or click on My Account at the top menu bar to the far right, provide your name and email address and a thank you email will immediately be sent with a coupon contained within it. It’s a secure page so no worries of your information falling into the wrong hands and I do not share your information with anyone.
If you already have an account and would like to take advantage of this discount, email me and I’ll gladly provide it for you.
I’ve never been one to send out a lot of promotional emails or newsletters so you don’t have to worry about me cluttering your email box, however I do plan on sending out more this year than I have in the past, which won’t take much.
Launch of New Website – 2014
New website put into place on January 5, 2014.
The old website was home grown and lacked in a lot of areas. With this new website there are better controls to manage the content using modern tools.
You’ll find my new site better organized and easier to navigate.
Along with standard sizes, many of the products now offer you the ability to get custom pricing on any size frame you might need.
If you have a question regarding any product you can utilize the Product Inquiry that will allow you to ask questions regarding that particular product. The email received will tell exactly what product is being inquired about.
Or, if you’d rather please feel free to give me a call at 503-267-5923, I will answer the phone. The website may have changed but the personal aspect of Solid Wood Frames is still the same.
