In response, Dulles Glass and Mirror will be donating 10% of all proceeds and online sales to the American Red Cross in aid of the Oklahoma Tornado Victims. Help us help the tornado victims this Memorial Day weekend.
This is the kind of feedback that has to come straight from the customer’s mouth. Our customer Joe in Enfield, Connecticut shared this very inspired note with us, and we had to share!
Dear Mr. Flouhouse @ Dulles Glass and Mirror,
My name is Joe and I live in Enfield, Ct. I just received my shipment of two mirrors to replace the doors in my medicine cabinet. As a life-long airfreight crating and trucking owner/operator, I found the packaging of the product you sent me to be innovative, impressive and with a definite attention to detail that expresses to the customer that you believe that even a small order such as mine is a quality product worth protecting and that even the little ones get the same attention as the big boys. That, my friend, is a rare commodity in this economic environment. I can say with complete confidence that whoever designed your packaging process is an absolute asset to your company. Your company ‘gets it’.
Thank you for providing me with a quality website that was a breeze to navigate and for delivering a fragile, quality product intact and on-time. Job well done sir!
I will be happy to suggest your company to family, friends and associates whenever I can. I am very pleased and impressed. A task not easily accomplished with a guy that has seen way more than my share of shoddy, careless packaging and lousy customer service. Even your insert inviting comment, and proudly proclaiming your mission statement and the pride you take in your product…printed on a classy, eye-catching and durable plastic parchment is quite unique and attractive and sets your company apart from the others.
Customer Submission: Susi Qube Game Table (Photos by Samantha Swann)
Our friends at Snow Woodworks have graced us with pictures of their one-of-a-kind Susi Qube Game Table, utilizing glass from Dulles Glass and Mirror. Warren Snow, the creator of this piece, was nice enough to share his creative design, which has since been showcased at the 2013 Smithsonian Craft Show:
I have completed the table that uses the glass you provided, and it’s now on my website.
I credited Dulles Glass & Mirror for the glass work and included a link to your website.Thanks again for the excellent glass work.
Glass Unboxing Video Recorded Through Google Glass
A common hobby amongst many early adopters and gadget enthusiasts, are to create “unboxing videos,” showing off their latest hardware. This type of video is only interesting for groundbreaking technology, such as Google Glass.
In this video, the user is actually wearing the Google Glass and recording WITH the glasses; which is a new twist on a common phenomenon in youtube unboxing videos. In one sense, it’s a great way to show off the video recording capabilities of the Google Glass, on the other hand, it’s a shame we don’t get to actually see the Google Glasses in the video!
Recently, our glass expert Emre was interviewed by RealSelf.com regarding picking the best mirror that gives the most accurate reflection. Real Self is a self-image website, so they are often discussing body image.
Here’s a snippet:
I reached out to a mirror design expert Emre Tunc from Dulles Glass and Mirror to see how I could pick a full length mirror that I could rely on to give me an accurate perception of my body.
Mirrors that make you look fatter
Mirrors with a convex (belly) surface running horizontally or vertically will stretch your reflection [making you look heavier].
Mirrors that make you look skinnier
Mirrors with a concave (bow) surface running horizontally or vertically will shrink your reflection [making you look like a Victoria's Secret model].
Mirrors that reflect your true appearance
If the mirror is flat, you will get a true reflection. It has nothing to do with the actual measurements of the mirror. But even a minimal amount of either convex or concave will distort a reflection.
hat tip – Thanks to our friends at Real Self for the press spotlight.
Customer Submission – Peggy From Ohio (Glassless Mirror Closet)
Take it away, Peggy:
Glassless Mirrors: Very please with product!
Review: [...] It arrived in perfect condition and I installed it. I love how it finished the project I was working on. [see attached pictures]. I would highly recommend your company to my friends for projects such as mine. In fact, if you’re on Angie’s List, I’ll leave a glowing review. [...] Thanks for a terrific product and even better service. If you want to view the project I was working on, check our my Facebook page. I posted a picture over the weekend of the finished closet project. It looks terrific.
Thank you Peggy! Just a tip for customers out there, when using acrylic glassless mirrors, do not opt for mirror mastic from your local Home Depot. Some kinds of mirror mastic can damage the backing of mirrors, so it’s always recommended to get the top-of-the-line mirror mastic to be safe.
