Fast and Furious
The best thing about the future is
that it comes one day at a time.
There is an old saying that goes "How Time Flies"...and it really does hit home for us. It's been a fast and furious year for all. From super atmospheric storms and super particle storms and the un-improving economy then the improving economy, it seems everything is racing by and here we all are...a year later well into 2013.
Speaking of time flying by, Faux Effects International Inc. just celebrated our 1st year anniversary in our new facility and couldn’t be more delighted, motivated and excited for the future of this wonderful decorative arts and products industry. The demand for decoration has been "pent up" for a time with a depressed and uncertain housing market, but decoration is timeless, and the interest and need for decoration is stronger and seems to be strengthening daily. Now is the time to look forward, not in the rearview mirror…we are bullish on the future! The Faux Effects® brand continues to grow, supplying our customers with uninterrupted products and service and developing ever new products. In the past year we introduced Old World Finishing Paint™, SuperFlo Enamel™, SetCoat® Stain Blocking Primer and new SetCoat® Metallics and Matte Metallics with a color pallet of 34 designer colors.
More to come from Faux Effects®…R&D is busy. Keep a close eye for more new products and classes this coming year!
Thank you for your patronage!
