Well, I've certainly been slacking in the "blogging" department, now haven't I? 

The pictures above show a large custom shaped carpet that Dan worked on. He bound it using our 1.25" polyester binding. 

Business has been a little funny lately. Usually the Summer season is hectic, yet this time around it hasn't been. We've had days when there was nothing major happening. Then we've had days when we're completely slammed with work and have one customer after the other in for rush services. It makes the days a little more exciting when you don't know what will happen next; on the other hand, it makes for really long days when there is not much on-hand. I suppose it's all part of the business. 

We are currently looking for some testimonials/reviews from people who have used our services. If you came in for any carpet binding service, please help us out and send us a review! You can e-mail them to:  .

As always, 
Thank you to everybody who has been in to see us for carpet binding needs recently!

"Today's blog is sponsored by the letter S" ... for Serging!

      Last week it seems that all jobs DWP Carpet Binding received in were serging jobs. We popped out 17 area rugs for a school. They ranged in size from 8 ft. by 10 ft. up to 12 ft. by 12 ft. It only took us 1.5 days to complete the job; while working on other binding jobs as well, so we didn't fall behind.  This is what a pile of serged carpets look like:
17 area rugs serged for a Montessori school.

We also received a serging job for pieces that were custom made. They chose to use a black serging yarn to accent the black carpet within the off-white field carpet. Here are two pictures of what it looked like:

Cotton serging yarn up-close.

The serging jobs were great projects. We even had a walk-in come in to cut back a custom car mat and finish it with serging to top it all off!

A completely separate job came to us. It was a carpet remnant that was already bound that needed to be cut into three different pieces. The original binding was a gold tone, which was used on a dark taupe (almost purple) carpet. I wasn't fond of the color the factory chose for the carpet. It wasn't even in the ballpark of the color of the carpet. Ultimately, because we could not match the existing binding exactly, we were instructed to bind all four sides to get the same aesthetics on all sides. Unfortunately, my camera isn't great, but here are two pictures of the original binding, then another displaying our binding versus their binding:

Original binding: gold/tan color on taupe carpet.

The binding on the top (going left to right) is ours; the binding on the perpendicular side (up and down) is the original. You can see that our binding has a crisp, clean look when it stitches; where as the other binding has wrinkles and the color is mismatched to the carpet's color. 

You can see that our binding matches the carpet better and it has a better finishing touch. If a person is attentive towards detail, they would notice a big difference. This aids in displaying the quality of our binding, as well as our ability to pick up better color tones to compliment the color of the carpet. We can't always get an exact match, but in this case, we think we hit a home-run!

This week, we already have three projects in for new fringe and a few custom binding jobs to finish up.

As always:

Custom Work & Custom T-shirts!

Over the past few weeks DWP Carpet Binding has had quite a handful of work.  We had a lot of serging and binding jobs, but we also had a few custom binding jobs for carpets on boats! Below is one of the pieces that was a part of the custom binding job:
Hand-binding/ Custom binding.

We also had a couple of runners that needed to be seamed in order to get the desired length. Here's what our seams look like:

Those are just a couple of the projects that have kept us busy these past few weeks. 

In other news:
Many customers have asked, "Where's my DWP shirt?", since Dan and myself have DWP Carpet Binding T-shirts we wear day-to-day. Well, after many requests, we have finally ordered some. They're not the same as the ones we wear every day, but I think they're pretty snazzy!
New DWP Carpet Binding T-shirts!

Hopefully the new shirts will look just as good in person! Time will tell.

Showing It Off-

Hey, we don't like to toot our own horns, but we don't mind if you do it for us!
This is just a quick post to show some of the recent pictures we received from customers who have bought carpet remnants we had in stock. With an inventory that is constantly revolving, you never know what we may have on hand, but we try to accommodate those seeking remnants as best we can.

Below are some pictures to show how small (or sometimes large) remnants can jazz up your living space.

2 ft. by 22 ft. floral runner
3 ft. by 5 ft. runner for door-way entrance
5 ft. by 8 ft. area rug
9 ft. by 12 ft. area rug (panoramic shot); note how it matches their dog!
8 ft. by 10 ft. area rug
5 ft. by 8 ft. area rug
And just for fun, here's a picture of my nephew doing something he loves ... vacuuming!
(I know. I know. Pretty surprising for a 6 year-old!)
Beneath those couch cushions and vacuum there's a 4 ft circular rug DWP fabricated!

That's all folks. Just a quick set of pictures displaying some of the remnants we have sold in the past.

(If you would like to help us show off our work, please fell free to e-mail us pictures of DWP stock pieces in use.) 

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Thank You to all who have come and visit us these past couple of weeks!
