Today we're talking to Sam and Dave Cohen of Elegant Mosaics about how they tie their personal journey into their visibility.
We manufacture and distribute our Elegant Mosaics product line out of Phoenix, AZ. Half of our 700+ SKUs are actually made to order so mosaics for your order are handcrafted specifically for your project. Production time for all custom mosaics are two weeks but they can be expedited to be made and shipped as quickly as one week.
Manufacturing and distributing out of Phoenix sets us apart from the majority of the other suppliers that stock and ship Chinese material. We have around 30 employees working in Phoenix putting mosaics together. Each mosaic is put together by hand one piece at a time by the same employee from start to finish. Any discolored or chipped mosaic pieces are tossed aside, this is a big part of the hands on quality control we provide.
Elegant Mosaics wants to provide the best experience we can for designers. This includes our designer exclusive program we're rolling out called Design, Play, Create. This program will be rolling out around June and will provide custom designer kits which include mold options for Penny Rounds (buttons), 1x1 and Elliptic. A designer will either receive one mold or up to all three. Each mold is accompanied by around 20 different mosaic chip colors and materials so designers can create their own patterns and color combinations. To have their design manufactured for their project all they have to do is take a picture of the design in the mold, send it to us and we can produce that mosaic within 2-3 weeks.
Our goal with Elegant Mosaics is to be a company that brings new and exciting products to the design industry. From the response at HD Expo I think we're on track for that.
