Crystal Art believes it is the nation’s number one designer and supplier of framed art, framed mirrors, and other wall décor items for the mass market. Our products are sold by a team of in-house sales people and independent sales representatives to many of North America’s leading mass merchants, bed and bath shops, craft stores, discount chains and retail specialty stores.
Founded over 30 years ago, the company has developed a reputation for supplying a complete line of attractive, high quality, and innovative wall décor offered at competitive prices. In addition, retailers value the company’s expertise and generally do not deal with overseas factories directly because of the critical design element of the products, the multiple numbers of components that are coordinated and integrated into the final products, the relatively high profit margin enjoyed by retailers on the products, and the need to quickly replenish in-store inventory levels.
Crystal Art offers approximately 5,000 SKUs. Products range in price from $1.00 to $149.99 at retail and are made from paper, canvas, glass, mirror, wood, plastic, and metal. The company is the only industry participant that follows a good/better/best strategy, segregating its product line into three brands that appeal to discount, mass merchant, and higher end retailers, respectively. Crystal Art also is the only industry participant that offers a full line in the four major framed wall décor categories: framed art, framed mirrors, photo frames, and alternative art. By serving a broad range of customers in multiple distribution channels, the company has developed a diversified sales base to help insulate it from market fluctuations.
Crystal Art designs, sources, displays, warehouses, and distributes products at its 250,000 square foot Los Angeles facility. The company has a distinct freight cost advantage and has an ocean freight arrangement that provides the fastest delivery time from China to the U.S., allowing Crystal Art to quote shorter lead times to its customers.
Crystal Art maintains a showroom in Hong Kong for customer presentations and a 25 person staffed office in China that performs quality control in all of its factories based on products specifications and samples received from the U.S. The China office also is responsible for monitoring the status of merchandise and orders in conjunction with the company’s import coordinators in the U.S.
