A member of Opticolour’s team carefully handles a huge version of Sally’s ‘Boating’ for delivery.

Right from the very start of Red Dog Glass Design, Sally was on the lookout for collaborators and suppliers who would help her put only the highest quality glass splashbacks into the world. When she discovered contemporary glass wall covering specialist, Opticolour, she knew this had potential to be a great working relationship.

We were looking for a supplier who was completely aligned with our core values of providing superb quality, and also impeccable customer service. Top quality reproduction is critical for Red Dog – the colour and textures in printing must perfectly represent the depth and expression Sally pours into her fine art paintings.

Of those early days, Sally says_

After several research visits to glass printing specialists across the UK, Opticolour shone out because of their commitment to every stage of the production, printing and delivery process. I was really drawn by their reputation within the glass industry for high quality manufacturing and printing.

At the heart of Red Dog’s ethos is exceptional customer service, and Opticolour provide this in bucket loads. I was hugely impressed by their attention to detail and speed of response.

Nick, their Director of Operations, spent many hours working with us to fine-tune the colour so it captured my paintings perfectly. I have seen work coming off the production line being turned down by their strict quality control and the entire glass panel reprinted. So reassuring to know that unless it’s perfect, it will not be shipped.

In addition to all this, Opticolour’s survey and installation service seemed like a really important option for us – they have a fully trained team who make site visits to create proper templates for the glass, so if you do opt fo this service, it removes any concern over the perfect fitting. Peace of mind is important, so the glass is guaranteed for 10yrs too.

And here’s the big excitement for us – again, here’s Sally_

In Summer 2019, we went live with an official Red Dog / Opticolour partnership! We are thrilled about this. We have the Opticolour Sales Managers out and about spreading the Red Dog word across the country’s top showrooms – Poggenpohl, B+B Italia, Bulthaup and Nolte – and I can’t tell you how exciting is is seeing my work go on display in Wigmore Street, Brompton Rd & Hampstead in London, plus a number of private orders rolling in too!

We are very much enjoying the relationship we are building, and look forward to an exciting 2020.
