The cost of Point of Sale material like fabric collections and other hardware swatches can be restrictive. We're here to help.

In an industry focused on providing shading solutions to homemakers, facilities managers and anyone else with windows, it’s crucial to have samples to hand. To many clients, colours and textures are some of the most important factors in deciding on a purchase and nothing beats a first-hand experience so point of sale materials are vitally important.

However, they don’t come cheap. Giving your clients more options will make them happier and secure more sales but that means investing in more collections which, in turn, means a greater up-front investment.

Last year, thanks to feedback we had collected from our ongoing customer service survey, we identified that accumulating costs were limiting the number of collections our customers could stock. So, in response, we developed a simple pricing structure that gives discounts of up to 20% when you invest in three or more Point of Sale items:

The goal was to keep our pricing clear and simple while helping to alleviate the strain of building and maintaining a library of material. Our free samples are always available but will never wow your clients like a professionally built, coordinated collection of fabrics.

Whether you’re just getting started in the curtains and blinds business or you’ve been around the block a few times and have outdated and dog-eared fabric collections that need replacing soon, please do bear the discount in mind.

We’ll always automatically apply the discount to any order that qualifies but if you have a budget to spend on fabric collections, getting them all in at the same time could save you a pretty penny!

Bonus tip: To keep up to date with the latest fabrics and ensure that discontinued fabrics aren’t being offered any longer, it’s essential for that collections to be refreshed every few years. To take the sting out of using a collection for just a few months before the latest iteration is released, we also offer a discount on upgrades.
