Betsey Iko’s Customer Photo: A Lovely Soft Roman Shade

Customer photo of a 3 Day Blinds Soft Roman Shade mounted over a kitchen sink. Don’t you just want to wash dishes all day?

Betsey Iko, the 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant who covers Pasadena, Arcadia and Monrovia, CA submitted a customer photo of our new custom-made, Gathered Soft Roman Shade in our Addison Verdant fabric.

“My client was just overwhelmed when she saw this beautiful shade in the window for the first time.  She says it makes her smile every time she walks into her kitchen,” says Betsey.  “When we met for her free in-home design consultation, she immediately fell in love with the Addison Verdant fabric, which is a beautifully rich, traditional Jacobean print on a linen blend that mimics an embroidery.  In addition, she was surprised to find that we offered interior designer quality at such reasonable prices, and she was impressed by our speed of delivery!  Now she wants 3 more of these shades for the dining room to mount over her Horizonal Sheer Shades as valances.”

3 Day Blinds recently introduced a new collection of Soft Roman Shades that come in 5 styles, and an exclusive collection of 160 fabrics.

To review this collection with Betsey, or your neighborhood 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant, please call us at 877-614-3329, or click here.  We’ll help you choose the right product for your home, provide guaranteed measurements, an on-the-spot quote, and arrange for professional installation.

Customer Recommendation for Mary Connolly

I just had the pleasure of working with Mary Connolly on designing some custom window coverings for my home.  She was just outstanding.

See was very motivated, knew the products and ordered me exactly what I wanted.  You should feel very fortunate to have such a great employee and I wish her continued success.  I look forward to referring her to my friends and family.

John,
Bakersfield

Customer Recommendation for Melissa Perez

Melissa —

I just wanted to let you know that we had our blinds installed last Friday.

They look GREAT!  I especially love the rounded corners on the headers.  Completely unexpected and just lovely!  And the colors — wonderful!  Even Matt, the installer, told me he was surprised and pleased when he opened the boxes and found something other than white.  He really liked the taupe in the living room/dining room and the blue for the slider in the family room.  I do too!

We did good! Thank you for all your help!

Customer Recommendation for Melissa Perez

Melissa,

We love the blinds you recommended!  They are now installed and look fantastic, so great in fact, my husband would like to do them in his office which has one large window and two small double french doors.  We will let you know when we are ready.

Again, thanks for your help, and all of your great advice!

Customer Recommendation for Heidi Allen

We are pleased that we chose to go with 3 Day Blinds.  Heidi helped us to make a choice that we are pleased with in the living room and bedroom.  Heidi is a good face for 3 Day Blinds since her presentation is personable and intelligent.  We cannot leave out Michael the installation man, he kept the appointment, was on time and had a neat and clean appearance.   He too was friendly and made you feel at ease with him.  We have already had the opportunity to recommend 3 Day Blinds to our friends and family.

3 Day Blinds Promotes Tikie and Greg!

tikie-holewski-greg-bibas-3-day-blinds-IMG_0141Promotions announced at 3 Day Blinds: Tikie Holewski is now Executive Vice President and Greg Bibas is now Chief Marketing Officer

Dave Hall, CEO at 3 Day Blinds, covered many exciting topics this morning during our Town Hall Meeting, including our rapid growth that is greatly out pacing the industry, our many new team members both in our Irvine Support Center and across the country, the success of our recent Drapery and Soft Roman Shade product launch, and recognition for the achievement of many teams and individuals throughout the organization. 

While there was much to applaud, there was no announcement more exciting than the news that 2 of our senior managers had been promoted to even more senior positions! 

Tikie Holewski has been promoted to Executive Vice President.  Tikie came to 3 Day Blinds in 2008.  Now, you’re probably thinking “Custom Window Coverings? An industry highly dependent on a strong real estate market and general economy?  2008?  Hope that worked out…”  Well, actually it has!  Since joining the company, Tikie has been heavily involved in human resources, operations, sales, general management, and the challenging task of guiding 3 Day Blinds through rough economic waters.  She was instrumental in developing the strategies that changed our business focus from storefront retail to to the highly effective shop-at-home services we now offer.  Tikie has been an energetic cheerleader at every step, exhibiting grace and humor when under pressure, and she deserves a lot of credit for transforming our company into a successful organization we are today, currently focused on maintaining our core values during a period of rapid growth, and delighting each and every client.  Because of her vast knowledge and supportive nature, most of us in management casually and affectionately refer to Tikie as our “Wingwoman”…  going forward that will be “Executive Wingwoman,”  thank you very much!

Greg Bibas has been promoted to Chief Marketing Officer.  Greg joined 3 Day Blinds in late 2010, at a time when we had defined our new strategy, but were mainly sustaining ourselves with the brand recognition and great reputation that caused clients to reach out to us based on remembering an ad from the late 90s, a friend’s recommendation or a past experience… all nice to have, but not a formula for the growth through new client acquisition that we all were wanting!  In an effort to find new customers, Greg immediately revved up our marketing machine with the testing, adjusting, and re-testing of programs he designed, all of which were executed with measurable marketing tactics.  Along the way, he also built a team of top-notch marketing professionals.  We’re happy to report that Greg’s approach, which provides great creative execution that communicates our value proposition, combined with highly sophisticated analysis has cracked the “secret marketing code”,  and we’ve actually had to ask him to slow down a few times, so the rest of us could catch up!  We’re excited to share that because Greg has been so successful in reaching clients who will benefit from learning about our fantastic selection of custom window treatments products, supported by our great service, we’re positioned for sustained growth, and this will allow us to provide a Superior Experience to more clients than ever.  And of course, that’s why we’re here.

Congratulations to Tikie and Greg from all of us!

Like what you’re hearing? Want to be our next ecstatically satisfied client?  Ready for new window treatments and to experience our fast and professional service?  Just give us a call at 877-614-3329 and we will schedule a free in-home design consultation with one of our expert Designers at a time that is convenient for you.  We’ll help you choose the perfect custom blinds, shades,  shutters, or drapes for your home, take guaranteed measurements, and arrange for professional installation.  Why wait?
