I would love your input on fabric sampling, an issue I’ve been working on for years at Wesco Fabrics. Sampling our customers is a huge expense made more difficult with rapidly changing styles and colors, shorter availability from fabric mills and the ways in which designers work on their projects. Old fashioned “stack books” have been used in the industry forever…but is there something better that fits the needs of today’s interior and window covering designer? You may have a totally new idea or variation on the traditional “stack book.” Please send your thoughts to email@example.com.
We have many different types of customers, some with fabric libraries, some using a showroom when they are sourcing fabrics for a project, and others who go online to view fabric images and to order swatches, as with Wesco Online at www.wescofabrics.com.
If I could dream up the perfect sampling idea it would include ease of use, something which helps sell a client, and would also be cost effective for the fabric supplier to produce. I just feel there must be a new idea out there. Maybe you’ve been thinking about this as well.
I can’t wait to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
