I should have gotten several packets of swatches by now. So far I have received zero.
This late delivery could be because of several reasons:
1) Many of the textile people I have been speaking with are on the East Coast
2) Large textiles companies don’t see small companies as a high priority
3) These companies are inefficient
Regarding the last point, I spoke to a local sales rep this afternoon who told me that their corporate office in NY gave him my number, and faxed him the application that I had faxed to the corporate office. So the faxing went like this:
Corporate –> Suzanne –> Corporate –> Local Sales Rep (“The fax I received was illegible”)
Then the sales rep asked me many of the same questions from the application form, and said that as soon as my new account was opened, which I was told would be just a few days, he could send me a sample book from their ecofriendly fabric line.
In the meantime my logo guy has been asking me which color I prefer more: light blue, or light blue-green. I looked at a PDF of the two colors and couldn’t tell the difference. So I just went with his opinion since he probably thought more about it than I ever could.
That’s all for today. Bye.
