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 =
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. =)
