July 2020

Dear Friends:

We just installed a large sign in our warehouse. It says –
Winners Make it Happen
Losers Let it Happen
YOU Make it Happen

In these desperate times it is easy to step back and let it happen, take no ownership of the issues, and basically fuggedaboutit. Someone else’s problem.

That’s not how the real world works. YOU make it happen or you pass the buck. President Harry Truman had a sign on his desk that said “The Buck Stops Here”. And it did.

I’d like to thank all 65 of our people for stepping up to the plate, for being there for you from the very beginning, and especially the past few months.

And what a beginning it was! Fall of 1980 on the kitchen table with two boxes of grommets, one black and one brown.

Now 40 years later, I’ve just turned 80 last month, we’ve expanded from two to some 6000+ SKUs, and we’re just beginning.

An oldie revived, our PSCR6 (Personal Screen) has found new vitality in these times demanding privacy. In fact, it has become a must-have for social distancing and personal safety. We have another privacy screen with acoustic cover, PSCR7, and very hip felt cover, PSCR8. Check them out here.

I sincerely hope all is well with you and yours,

A very Happy Fourth of July.
