Changing of the times at Eglomise

Starting last week, and probably extending for some time, we are pulling things apart here at Eglomise.  A trusty piece of equipment, that recovered from being fully flooded a few years ago, is now being retired and recycled.  We have to disassemble each piece so the plastic covers can be recycled separately from the metal and the computer boards.  The charges for recycling the computer boards is not high but well worth keeping toxic metals out of our landfills.

If you've ordered holiday note cards from us in the last 10 years this is the machine that helped us make those note cards for your Christmas mailing.  We've a new, much smaller replacement for this monster of a machine - it was fully 18 feet long!  It is amazing how technology has improved and shrunk over time.  We are getting to know our new machine, and will be up and "ready to roll" in very short order for your Holiday Mailing of 2015.

Custom Artwork

The vast majority of our artwork is from Martha's historical pictures.  However, in recent years many schools have torn down old buildings, the ones Martha originally took pictures of and worked from as they hand-painted each and every mirror.  Now schools wish to have a "new" art for their "new" building designed. 

We've been inundated with new art requests.  Right now we are running at a 6-8 week timeframe for new art to be finished.  Art must be finished and in our files before we can begin making your product as that is what we work with when making your gift.If your school is not already in our catalog and you require new art it takes 6-8 weeks from receipt of a high resolution photo, order placement and receipt of deposit. We do not schedule new art between October 15th and December 15th.  Also we do not schedule new art between April 15th and May 31st.  

We know that we would not be able to finish such artwork in time for production during those two times when we have the highest demands upon the production team.  If you have any questions on minimum orders required with new art, photo resolution or to place yourself in our art queue what it would require please feel free to call 800.443.8979 and speak with Sherri as she is happy to answer such questions.

Throwback Thursday 7/09/2015

Violets, in the Language of Flowers, means "faithfulness, I'll always be true" and what a lovely bunch we are looking at right now. From Eglomise's old images, some more than 50years old, we chose this to share with you on Throwback Thursday.  We do not guarantee that this product is currently carried, or that we have current license to produce it. However, we wish to share some of the historic pieces on Throwback Thursday.  We do hope that you enjoy the little look down memory lane,  and might share some of your own old pictures of Eglomise Designs products.
