 NOTICE FROM UNILINE

dawnminimegaphone

From George Lucas – Uniline's Fabric Category Manager:  "In last month’s Product Update I detailed all of the fabrics which we were phasing out. Dawn Mini was one of them. I have since had many customers asking for this product to be re-instated. I have listened and am pleased to advise that Dawn Mini will be ongoing. 

There are 2 colours which will be phased out, Bubble Gum and Sunshine.  We still have remaining stock, so once sold out we will not replenish. We will introduce a new pink to this range “Baby Doll” which will be ideal for a girl’s room.

As previously advised, Mini Dawn 2100mm and 2400mm widths will be phased out in all colours with a 3000mm width to be phased in. In addition we will also phase out 89mm and 100mm; only the 127mm will remain.  In next month’s Product Update I will be in a better position to confirm timing for new colours and swatches for Dawn, Pearlised and Uniview".

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Due to the fall of the Australian Dollar the majority of our suppliers have increased their prices on components and fabrics.  Please note: Quotes are only valid for 30 days, therefore anything quoted early may not be valid and therefore may need to be requoted.  Please check with us if you need clarification.

Notice from Four Families: 2015 Four Families Pricing.

We would like to thank you for your increased support. As much as we tried to maintain our pricing since 2011, and as much as we are striving to help you produce the most affordable blind designs, the weakening of the Australian Dollar has forced us to increase the price some products.

This is the first increase in 4 years.  As of March the following increases will take place."

Prices have increased between 5% to 8% on all products excluding Berkley Roller and Tremont Vertical. Betta have absorbed most of these price increases, therefore there are changes to only 8 out of their 19 fabric ranges.

Katoomba, Anais, Fed Square, Cumulus and Cirrus are still Category G in In House Rollers, and Category 6 for Panel Glides and Roman Blinds. 

Quebec is now Category G in In House Rollers with no price change for Panels/Romans

Parnell is now Category G in In House Rollers with no price change for Panels/Romans

St Lucia no change in In House Rollers, but now Category 3 in Panels/Romans

As the other fabric in our In House Category G pricing has also been increased by Mermet, being Scarborough Blockout, we have now increased Cat G prices by an average of 4%. 

THE NEW IN HOUSE ROLLER BLINDS PRICE LIST IS ATTACHED; THIS REFLECTS THE PRICE INCREASE IN CATEGORY G ONLY..

Current Fabric Collection attached.  Please update in your price list folders.
