    We will have PDI glass at TPF and other shows.

    We have talked with Joey and we are purchasing his entire stock of PDI glass to Bring to Texas. It will only be standard size and they will be $300 CASH (no discounts). Joey has only 27 sheets. Please reply on this tread if you want me to put you on the list.

    We are working with Joey to purchase PDI glass for other shows, but we are not sure when he will get back in stock. These are the show we are planning on going to this year:

    Texas Pinball Festival March 22-24
    Midwest Gaming Classic April 12-14
    Pinfest May 3 – 4
    Pintastic June 27-30
    Southern-Fried Expo July 12-14
    Replay FX August 1-4
    White Rose Gameroom October 11-12
    Pinball Expo October 16-20

    Please visit me at our Booth before Saturday the 24th at noon to pay (no deposit needed). I can hold for you to pick up later, but after noon, I will free up your order to other people. Our booth is easy to spot, Lighted Pinball Mods, it is very colorful and in our booth we have:

    Lighted Speaker Panels (Stern and WPC95 new for this year, 3rd generation for most WPC)
    Plasma Pop Bumpers
    Lighted Magnetic Hinge Covers
    Pinspot Graphics
    Lighted Shooter Covers
    WPC and WPC95 Speaker Lights
    And much more

    Joey will post on here in the next week that these are authentic PDI.

    This tread is the master request list. I have had some people PM me or list they are interested in another tread, I am going to give them a couple days to reply on here, and I will give them priority, because of their interest we are moving forward with this project.

    These are the names on the people that I will give a 2 day grace period to be on this list:

    Wdpvideo 3 sheets
    Gutsmcgee 1 sheet
    jake35 1 sheet
    yelobird 2 sheets
    sunking 1 sheet
    1iblind 1 sheet

    If Joey get more before the show, I will pick up more, but I don’t think he is.

    Thanks
    Dan

    I need one sheet at Pintastic.

    #3 10 months ago

    12 sheets for ReplayFX

    #4 10 months ago

    1 sheet at TPF. Thanks

    #5 10 months ago

    If you have any sheets at Midwest gaming classic, I will take two.

    #6 10 months ago

    If a vendor were to bring PDI glass to a California show (GSPF, CAX), I'm sure they could sell 50+ sheets easily. Probably quite a bit more than that.

    The are lots of collectors in the area, many with collections of 12+ machines, and a strong local economy. There are several pinhead groups in the area that could help spread the word for orders.

    I wish someone were going to have these at Arcade Expo in a couple of weeks. I could use another sheet or 2 and wouldn't mind saving $75+ in shipping costs.

    I'm in for 3 sheets at TPF.

    Hello to All! =)

    Yes - We have made an exclusive deal with Dan and he will be our new distributor for all Pinball Shows now and going forward for PDI Glass at all future Pinball Shows. =)

    This is the best OPTICAL - NG Glass that money can buy. But buying at shows will save you on all shipping costs - which is just not cheap. Especially fully insured ( Fully insured GLASS products via FedEx or UPS MUST be "Box-Inside a Box" packaged ) - which most do not even do as their cost to manufacture is LESS THAN HALF of what our direct cost is to even produce directly. We simply do not have the 300% markup that they do - we have a 50%. They are just ripping people off selling it at the same price. Like a Corvette compared to a Ferrari.........plus our packaging materials are $20 per box ( box inside a box ) and $10 labor each box @ 2 x people taking 20 min to box it - plus FedEx went up 10% this year in sipping costs and we are actually loosing money on orders shipping to the west coast USA. Don't even get me started on PayPal Fees......LOL

    All other "competitors" who have tried to copy our product ( who could not ) - priced the retail the same as ours. Again - just ripping people off....off a direct manufacturing product that we directly / make / import. We have exclusive rights to this product - which Roman ( Our Broker in Germany / ORIGINAL Inventor - and where it is produced ) and I are directly and exclusively linked to - and are sole partners for USA Dist.

    Many offering "Discounts"....which is marketing BS....are using a Teflon "Sputtered" Glass product....not 100% smooth and are 30% more reflective than PDI.
    This is not an opinion - Rest Reflection is measurable by Spectral Analysis. Our product is chemically etched....with 3 different coatings " both sides" which are chemically ETCHED into the glass itself within ceramic tanks via a unique type of comparable Electro-Plating". Can check MANY previous posts for the exact charts of this information provided by Roman ( which all others do not even "try" and dispute on their quality / rest reflection / and how their product is made )....and of the end result analysis - comparably, for a good reason. Here are also video(s), and much more info on this product and comparisons =

    http://www.pinballdecals.com/NonGlareOpticalGlassPage.html

    VERY specific info.......and again - not marketing BS. Yes - many of our mod products we do not make ourselves and are not "cheaper" then you can find, but we stock and ship fast via direct importing and stocking - and 100% support via our customer service....but this is a PDI product. We have over 2,000 products on our website, also all of our "licensed" pinball machine products from PPS are MUCH cheaper than other retailers.....check. Plastic sets, Cabinet Decals, Etc.....

    But also due to a recent Euro price increase on our end - we just cannot discount the price at all via PayPal orders through our website ( no matter the Qty ordered or even ours - it does not change the cost at all ( whether we / you order 100 or 1000 sheets per order ). For this quality level of OPTICAL Coating(s) on glass due to not a high "copy-cat" initial extreme markup on a specialty product - like others tried and matched on pricing - does not come near comparison via actual specifics on the quality of the product itself. It is a VERY, VERY cheap product for what it is....and is truly one of the BEST upgrades you can do for your Pinball Machine - IMO, and MANY, MANY others. Not only the " Non-Glare" effect the glass produces - But the optical coatings make everything underneath it look 10x Better - MUCH, MUCH more vibrant colors and intensity.

    Best to all my friends. And super happy that we can now provide this level of a Superior high quality of product - now available at all major Pinball Shows in USA. Thanks to Dan at = lightedpinballmods.com

    We have next shipment already ordered - and still have "boxed" stock for shipping. So will be close for website orders - next batch is due here 2-3 months, but again have good boxed stocked, and will keep Dan supplied for shows. We do not backorder anything anymore.....website is kept 100% accurate on stock.

    So should be steady going forward.....be well my friends. =)

    The Glass price police....

    #27 10 months ago

    Sorry for the delay, I was hoping Joey would get more glass in, but he probably won't get any more for 2 months. Do to an accounting error, we were only able to get 17 sheets, and I will contact people in order that I was contacted. If those are not paid for by Saturday by 12 noon, I will let other people have them. Once paid for I will hold them till Sunday noon if needed.

    $300 is the cash price. The margin is very thin on this, and if a credit card is used, it has an extra cost of about 4%. I will email those I have on the top of the list.

    Joey is making me handle the glass the exact way he does, and he even gave me a couple sets of the white gloves he uses.

    Thanks
    Dan

    California is so far for us, that it never worked for us to go that distance. If people are interested, we may be able to go to the California show with some next year.

    Joey went through the manufacturing process and why it is difficult to get a large quantity. I know their has been a lot of discussion between PDI, Invisaglass and Stern glass. Joey had samples of all at his place and showed me the difference, and I will agree with the majority of people that PDI is the superior product. I always assumed all of the glasses had an optical coating, but that is not the case with PDI glass. PDI glass is placed into large containers of solution for a very specific amount of time, and PDI glass is etched on both sides. This entire process is done at 2 different processing locations, this is part of what the delay and cost is in the manufacturing process.

    Do to limited supply I don't think I am going to be able to get any more glass till the Pintastic.

    Thanks

    If I do a California show next year, it would only be one show, and I would have to see how it schedules out with East coast shows.

    #30 10 months ago

    I went in order of emails and posts on this thread, and all of the glass I bring is accounted for. If I am saving some for you, I emailed you. If I ran out, and don't have any, I should have emailed you also.

    I asked everyone that is getting some to pay me Saturday before 12 noon, I can hold for Sunday 12 noon pick up. If someone does not pay me by Saturday at 12, I will have that available at that time.

    Because of supply, I think the next show I will have glass for will be Pintastic. I will start a thread for Pintasitc in a couple of weeks. At Pintastic, I will give the receipts if needed for customs.
