Tipsy Gypsy Here
Things are going well , Weve worked our backlog from 14 months down to six . I have a very packed production schedule and we are shipping a lot of patches . Ive made a couple of changes to improve our quality . The first is a new 100 watt laser cutting machine . Ive been cutting the edges of every patch out by hand for many years - The laser does it quicker, and with more accuracy and I can save the wear and tear on these old hands .
The new EPA and states regulations on voc's have made it increasingly difficult to aquire suitable emulsions, oils and pigments used in our process. Its been a real pain in the rear to come up with a quality alternative to the colorants and formulas used in the past . We completley retooled our process and worked out new colorants that are even better and more durable than the old ones - (and they meet the new regulations) You will notice an increase in our patch quality and the colors have a more uniform appearance .
Ive also gone to a better quality protective coating with a more robust UV resistance in the finish on each patch . Our leather supplier has not changed / is the best vintage tannery in the country / it allows us to turn out awsome patches with chrisp sharp detail . We started phasing in the changes in February of this year .
Production schedule is running at 5 to 6 months on average . New tooling longer,
Were working to reduce the production time and speed up the tooling process for new designs.
