Customer Recommendation for Betsey Iko

I want to recommend Betsey Iko if you need new blinds for your windows!  She
was very patient and helpful while I was selecting the blinds.  Basically,
she made the whole process easy and painless.  Plus, the new blinds go
perfectly – I love them!

Thanks again,

New Product Introduction! 3 Day Blinds Custom Draperies and Soft Roman Shades in 168 Fabrics

newdraperies3 Day Blinds launched a new collection of custom-made Soft Roman Shades and Draperies today.

It is with great excitement that we at 3 Day Blinds just launched our new line of custom Soft Roman Shades, Drapery Panels and Decorative Drapery Hardware.

“In our 30+ year history, we have been known as the best source for custom blinds, shades and shutters,” said Karin Jeske, SVP,  Merchandising & Product Development.  “However, with the addition of these new introductions, we will be able to take our clients’ decor in a whole new direction.  Custom Soft Roman Shades offer our clients a new category of window shades, one that is softer and more decorative.  Custom Drapery Panels can add drama and a designer touch, while also hiding light gaps, finishing the look over an outside mounted blind or shade, or adding insulation and privacy.”

The assortment consists of 5 Roman Shade styles, 6 Drapery Panel styles, 4 collections of Decorative Drapery Hardware and 168 hand-chosen fabrics.

“Our fabric assortment is amazing,” says Jenni Su, Merchandising Manager.  “We shopped the global wholesale fabric marketplace and selected the best of what is available, and created an collection that is exclusive to 3 Day Blinds, which includes stripes, prints, jacquards, textures and solids in a gorgeous color range and in styles that will complement decor ranging from traditional to modern.”

The Design Consultants and Showroom managers received their sample books last week.  “The excitement among our 200 Designers is unprecedented, because this new introduction provides them the ability to serve more clients, and Draperies and Soft Roman Shades are the perfect complement to our existing products” said Scott Mendez, VP, Sales.  “All of our Designers have a list of past customers who are anxious to review the new product line.”

gary-gilbertGary Gilbert, PhoenixThese sentiments were echoed by many Designers who provide free consultations to our clients in their homes. 

Gary Gilbert, from the Phoenix-Scottsdale area, and one of 3 Day Blinds’ top Designers, was in town this week to meet with our Board of Directors, and to help us film some training videos for these new products. “In the nearly 2 decades that I have spent helping clients decorate their windows, this is the most exciting program I have seen,” said Gary.  “The different style options and wide range of fabrics will allow me to create the perfect finishing touch, customized to my clients’ decor and budget.”  Gary was also the first Design Consultant in the country to receive our two new fabric books, and immediately presented it to the team in Arizona – click here to watch.

helane kramerHelane Kramer, Hollywood Helane Kramer, also visiting the Irvine Support Center for the Board of Directors meeting, and an experienced interior designer described what this meant for 3 Day Blinds, “Custom Draperies have a reputation for being complex to specify and expensive to make, involving a long ordering process.  This program takes the guesswork out of the design process.  One of the great benefits of working at 3 Day Blinds is the ability to provide an on-the-spot quote.  With this new program, I will be able to design any of custom soft shade and drapery treatments that I can dream up with my clients, and provide a quote instantly,” says Helane.  “Once the order is accepted, it is sent electronically to the factory floor and these products will ship in 10 business days, which is practically unheard of.  I am constantly amazed at how 3 Day Blinds leverages the latest technologies to make it easy for me to provide great service and a trouble-free experience to my clients.”

If you’re ready to meet with Gary, Helane or your local design consultant to review this fabulous new collection of custom fabric window treatments, just call us at 877-614-3329, and we will arrange for a free consulation at a time that is convenient to you.  Your local 3 Day Blinds Designer will help you choose the perfect window treatments for your home, provide guaranteed measurements and an on-the-spot quote, and arrange for professional installation.

Customer Recommendation for Betsey Iko

My sister, Patty, had worked with 3 Day Blinds before and recommended the company to me. I have been extremely satisfied with the overall experience of ordering the blinds and the installation. Betsey Iko has been a tremedous help to me in selecting the best type of window covering for each window. She is very professional, always on time, and a pleasure to work with.
