Announcing a New Product from 3 Day Blinds: Simply Sheer™ Shades!

A brand new product from 3 Day Blinds – Simply Sheer Shades.

3 Day Blinds announced the introduction of a sensational new product, Simply Sheer Shades, today.  “We are very excited to bring a brand new type of shade to market for many reasons,” says Kevin Rabbitt, CEO.  “First, this product is exclusive to 3 Day Blinds.  Second, it truly is an innovative breakthrough, the kind our industry as not seen in over 20 years;  this custom made shade offers a whole new aesthetic, and a never-seen-before form of light control.  Third, I love to see the excitement this is generating inside the company, from the factory floor, to the field where our talented Designers are showing this new product to our clients for the first time today.”

Design Consultants from the 3 Day Blinds team in major markets across the country have samples of all of the fabrics and an actual shade that they will bring to their clients home, along with samples the 1000+ other products that are custom-made in the 3 Day Blinds factory.  “Our Designers are are indeed excited to have one more great design option among the many we already offer to our clients,” says Scott Pickard, SVP of Sales.  “Another great feature is that Simply Sheer offers a budget-friendly alternative to other more expensive custom shades.”

During an all-company conference call this morning, top Design Consultant, Helane Kramer, who serves clients in Los Angeles, Hollywood and Pasadena, CA, said: “I am seeing 3 clients today, and I am very excited about introducing them to our new Simply Sheer Shades. I love having a solution in my tool kit that I can offer exclusively. Many of my clients, such as those in the Hollywood Hills and Pacific Palisades have large picture windows with fantastic views, but controlling the light as it changes during the day can be a real challenge. These shades provide flexible light control when the shade is lowered to any length, roll up neatly into a cassette headrail to provide an unobstructed view, and offer privacy when desired.”

Like all 3 Day Blinds Design Consultants, Helane offers a free in-home consultation where she provides design advice, guaranteed measurements, an on-the-spot quote, and will arrange for professional installation.

Karin Jeske, SVP of Merchandising & Product Development adds:  “The reaction has been phenomenal.  Our designers love the color palette and the choice of light filtering and room darkening fabrics.  These modern, sleek shades look great almost any window or room, and our clients will be the first on their block to have them.”

This unique product offers two layers of fabric that have horizontal rows of transparent and opaque or semi-opaque material that slide past each other on two roller mechanisms to create different levels of light control.

Jenni Su, Ashley Ragland and Karin Jeske of the 3 Day Blinds Merchandising Team introduced Simply Sheer Shades in a 3 Day Blinds all-company conference call this morning.

Another great feature is that, as with all 3 Day Blinds products, they can be delivered and installed quickly.  “Our factory is amazing,” says Jenni Su, Merchandising Manager.  “A shade ordered any time on Monday can be delivered Wednesday and installed on Thursday.  This is a wonderful competitive advantage that we enjoy with all custom blinds and shades that we manufacture.”

Judeann Glover, who manages Ohio, Michigan and Maryland, our top perfoming districts month-to-date, summed it up, “The buzz Simply Sheer is creating in the company, the industry and among our customers is amazing.  Combined with the high level of service we provide, and the speed with which we deliver, this great new product category is sure to help us deliver on our Core Values of Excellence and Superior Client Experience.  And it is One Team that made this introduction flawless.”

Customer Recommendation for Michelle Plunkett

Thank you for the blinds and for being here while they put them up.  We love them, they keep the room much cooler, and yet we can see our beautiful view through them – they are perfect.
Construction should begin in a month on our bedroom, and we will have you back as soon as we are ready to buy more window treatments.
Hope you are well.

Your 3 Day Blinds Design Team in Colorado

The 3 Day Blinds Design Team from Colorado: Front row: Kathy Miks, Sophia Hebener, Brenda Saint, Ronda Jirik (District Sales Manager, Next row: Cynthia Barnes, Debby Simpson, Anita Veech, Judy Benson, Harmony Nekvasil, Sharon Pszanka, Cheryl Waterman, Linda LeBallister, Tommy Trussell, Back Row: JP Younit, Eric Horan, Donna Bourgeois (hiding in the back). Who are you going to call when you need custom blinds, shades or shutters in Colorado?  Your local Day Blinds Design Consultant, of course!

“I am so proud of the team we have built in Colorado,” says Ronda Jirik, District Manager.  “We are completely focused on our local market and the unique window treatment needs of our clients.”

We asked Ronda what some of the unique challenges are in the Colorado market.  “I can think of several things.  First of all, we experience extreme weather conditions, and our clients love the 3 Day Blinds products that provide superior insulation and can lower energy bills year-round.  Second, people move here for the beautiful panoramic views, and want to enjoy them, often through large picture windows.  We offer many products that have options to preserve the view even when the window treatment is closed, and others that stack tightly when opened to provide an unobstructed view,” says Ronda.  Third, the light here can be intense, and can change rapidly.  For these situations, we have many window treatment options that can easily change the way the light comes into the room throughout the day.  Fourth, we have a wide array of design preferences here in Colorado – our designers are trained to help consumers find the ideal solution whether they live in a modern artist loft, a Spanish-style home in the suburbs, a traditional town home or a log cabin.”

3 Day Blinds Design Consultants provide free in-home design consultations to their clients.  In one visit, they suggest the perfect solution for the style and budget, take guaranteed measurements, provide a quote, and arrange for professional installation. 

Tikie Holewski, SVP of Human Resources visited Colorado recently, and expressed her confidence after meeting with the team, “Killer team!  Fun, talented and energetic. If I had a home in Colorado, I would welcome any of these Design Consultants to help me find the perfect window treatment solution.”

One of our Best-Kept Secrets: The Top Down, Bottom Up Shade

Top Down, Bottom Up Woven Wood Shade by 3 Day Blinds.

A great thing about having your window shades custom-made is all of the design options available.  At 3 Day Blinds, we carry over 1000 materials that can be customized in 1/8″ increments in sizes from sizes ranging from 8″ to over 200″.  Then add in the different operating systems, decorative trim options and light control features, and the choices are almost infinite. 

One of our most popular upgrades on Honeycomb, Roman, Pleated and Woven Wood Shades, is our Top Down, Bottom Up feature.  We asked Annie Butler, our top Texas Design Consultant, based in the Houston area why she recommends Top Down, Bottom Up Shades for her clients.

“I often recommend Top Down, Bottom Up Shades in bedrooms and bathrooms, where my clients want to maintain privacy below, but let in light from above,” says Annie.  “Often, they fall in love with this feature, and request it throughout their entire home.   Because these shades can be lowered from the top OR raised from the bottom, they are extremely versatile and work well in Texas, where the temperature and light can vary dramatically in a short time period.”

Annie works with each client to design the perfect window treatments for their style, budget and light control needs.  “In addition to the great design features we offer, I can always be confident that the products I sell will be of the highest quality, because they are made in the 3 Day Blinds factory, and we control the production.  My clients are often surprised that their custom blinds and shades can be manufactured to their specifications, and shipped the following day.  Most choose the professional installation that we offer to ensure a worry-free experience.”

Don’t you have a room that would be greatly improved by the addition of Top Down, Bottom Up Shades?  If so, give us a call at 877-614-3329 and we will set up an appointment for you to meet with Annie or the expert 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant in your neighborhood.
