Love Notes

These quotes provide insight into our clients, our factories and the way we interact with both. We are enormously grateful for feedback.  Nevertheless, we never systematically saved comments like the ones we are sharing here. So, consider them  as representative of a ton of notes and emails sent by kind clients since 1985. The only edits made before posting: to protect identity we used first names only (you know who you are, anyway) and we made sure the quirky spelling of VisABILITY is corrected when necessary.

(NOTE: This note was actually sent to Tom & Ray was from a person who received a Car Talk shopping bag as a contribution premium – and the bag tore.) I want to take a moment to comment on how impressed I am with your response to the situation. Within 24 hours of sending my note I received an email from VisABILITY, the maker of the bags, offering me 4 new bags as compensation for my problem. I have since received the new bags and they work just fine. Thanks. Car Talk and VisABILITY are great and do NPR proud.

Please don’t hate me…but we just received our pre-production proof…they are kick butt gorgeous. Could we up our order to 400? I will try not to change the count again…but it is VisABILITY’s fault for doing such a great job.
Deborah, Maryland
*Thank You* for the courteous, helpful way you quickly replied, in just a twinkle of time. This is so far out of my expertise, I very much appreciate the hand-holding and assistance.. …pat yourself on the back for me. Better yet, show this to the boss (unless you are he…)

Excellent. Thanks. You guys are so great to deal with. I’ve been fighting with our office supply company (Staples) for two weeks over an order that’s been wrong 3 times in a row – the same way every time – and I’m ready to pull my hair out. Contrasting that with dealing with VisABILITY highlights how quick, cheerful, efficient and reliable y’all are. Thank you SO much.

Thank you to VisABILITY for bringing this project in on budget and ahead of schedule. Everyone in your office has been terrific.
