Learning from Setbacks: The All-Weather Mat Challenge and the Rise of UV-Printed Doormats

Preview Image: 

Every business has a setback from time to time. I'm sorry to announce I've hit a snag in our all-weather doormat production. The US manufacturer we relied on for our original synthetic doormats has shut down.

I made. batch of all-weather mats for my fans who'd pre-ordered. Before I went& packed them up, I thought I'd give them one final foot test... and the paint came right off like chalk on a chalkboard! The replacements I found aren't allowing our paint to stick like they should, which is a massive bummer.

But we're hustling with our paint crew to find a fix. It's a bit of a puzzle, but here at Damn Good Doormats, we never give up!

In the meantime, we have found that the paint we used for the all-weather doormat tests is INCREDIBLE!!!! This coco mat has been out in the direct sun & rain of Baltimore for the whole summer & Fall. The coco mat itself has discolored from getting soaked, but check out that paint!!! Sturdy as the day it was born.

There is a silver lining though- That heavy-duty paint we used? Turns out it's doing wonders on our coconut mats. This paint's tough as nails against sun and rain! Just a heads up, though: heavy rain will darken the natural coir mat, so keep that in mind.

While I'm on the hunt for the ultimate all-weather doormat, I've rolled out another option.

 We now offer both budget-friendly UV Printed doormats and our robust Hand-Painted coir mats.
The UV-Printed mats aren't as rugged compared to hand-painted doormats, they're a fantastic choice for quick shipping and low-cost gifting! For those who dig durability, our hand-painted doormats are still top-notch. UV Printed mats will be shipped within 3 business days of ordering. Hand-painted doormats take a bit longer to create as they are individually crafted just for you!

Your support means the world to us, and we're hustling to get this sorted. Thanks for being awesome and patient through this process.
