I bought them (model 250) when my twins were born and they just turned 8. We all look forward each year to updating their pictures and I smile every time I walk by them on the wall of the living room. :o) Wendy B.

Just wanted to commend time frames on their products and customer service. It's very rare to find such great customer service. Whether it's e-mail responses or returning a product. Your customer service efforts are top notch. Plus your products are great. Leigh

60-Second Overview

Since 1990, Dobrin Industries Inc. has specialized in high-quality, made-to-
order, personalized photo collage frames with a wide variety of themes, serving
over 200,000 customers with a remarkable 99.8% Customer Satisfaction Rate.

Our own exclusive mat designs are timeless and elegant, characterized by
thoughtful symmetry, clean lines, and spaciousness. Many feature special
windows for photo-captions and a frame title - enabling a high degree of
personalization that can be done at any time.

Choices truly abound. There are 126 models, 9 mat colors, 28 frame mouldings,
3 face options, 9 template colors and 16 gift wraps. There are also 14 standard time-themes but the unique caption and title windows allow you to make up any theme you can imagine.

Friendly phone service is provided by our own in-house staff without sales
pressure. Fast custom production within 3 to 5 days - delivery in most cases
within 10 days. Same-day rush service available. Easy returns, exchanges
and parts replacements. 30-Days 100% Satisfaction Guarantee includes everything: Purchase Price, original S&H and even Return Shipping.


Customer Satisfaction

In our entire history only 1 in 500 customers has decided to return our product, even though we refund all shipping charges. We could praise ourselves all day long, but our history of customer satisfaction speaks for itself. And, if it turns out you're the 1 in 500, you'll be fully refunded in 1 or 2 days, not "in the next 1 or 2 billing cycles" like many companies do. So, we satisfy every one of our customers - even those few who decide not to keep our products.


Repeat Customers

We have one customer who has ordered 57 frames from us over the last 6 years, and there are many other customers who've ordered almost as many. Over half our sales come from previous customers. The simple truth is that if we did not satisfy 99.8% of our customers and get subsequent sales from them, year after year, then we would be out of business.

Exclusive Product Design

We've designed all our products and you won't find anything like them anywhere else. We're not the only company to make a First Year frame or a School Year frame, but we have the best quality and the best design. Our few competitors don't use acid-free mat board like we do, and they typically clutter up the mat with old-fashioned art work. Our mats have either linen or pebbled finish - not the stark flat finish you'll typically find, and they're available in white and 8 hand-painted colors that are ours exclusively. Our competitors typically offer only 1 or 2 frame colors. We offer a wide variety. They don't include a handy outliner - we do!


Personal Customer Service

Our Customer Service staff have been with us for many years. They know the products very well - in part because they share some of the production work. They can answer any questions you have and deal with any problems. They do occasionally have to call back people during peak call times, but you won't be put on hold long or get busy signals. And, when you call, they'll be able to see every order you ever placed with us.


Dobrin Industries Bio

The company was founded in 1990 after the original Time-Frames 2501 was designed by the President for his nephew. At first it was made in his apartment and sold in a few local gift shops. National direct-mail advertising began in late 1993, and a production space was rented in the "Old Harrison Plant" in Lockport, New York. We've been at the same location since then, now occupying 6,500 square feet of what is now called Commerce Square.

As is the case with most direct-mail companies, sales from advertisements were not sufficient to make a profit and the company lost money for several years. Mr. Dobrin was confident that subsequent sales from previous customers would eventually grow enough to make the company profitable, and that is precisely what happened.

Over the years we have expanded our product line to suit almost any occasion, including births, graduations, and anniversaries. New products are in development and we plan to continually increase our product line.

We assemble most frames per-order but we buy many of the empty frames from Kandu Industries, a non-profit company which employs people with disabilities. This company employs and trains over 900 disabled people each year, so when you buy one of our frames you help create opportunities for adults who lack other alternatives.
