Now Lighter, and non intrusive to walls and back on ETSY
Lighter means that we have achieved one of our original goals, That our wall clocks are non intrusive and do not require you to make a hole in your wall with either a screw a nail or a anchor that may need to be repaired later. By using existing technology we were able to develop a mounting system that is both secure and non invasive to walls and still allows for the clock to be easily removed and reattached to your wall for battery replacement and time changes. Placement of the clock is quick and easy without the need to make a hole and the clock can be moved just has easily without leaving any evidence such as holes or residue on your wall.
Non intrusive means that Auburn/Gray Designs wall clocks can be used in places where you do not want damage your wall or where conventional wall clocks cannot, such has the office or a dorm room, or any place where putting holes in walls is not permitted or feasible because of wall material such has plaster modular wall board or brick.
With the new lighter base material and the non intrusive mounting system we can now offer low cost, low impact, and easy to place promotional clocks the can be placed by a sales representative in seconds without damaging the clients wall. Limited run, custom designed, and sized clocks to promote your business or origination.
Lighter also means less costly shipping in both an economic and ecological sense. We can now offer Free shipping in the lower 48 states and reduced shipping cost everywhere else, and this also reduces our carbon foot print. The new material used to fabricate the clocks structure besides being lighter can also be recycled. All excess materials from the manufacturing of Auburn/Gray Designs wall clocks is now being recycled.

I have a business that involves photography, and at times I take photographs with nothing but that in mind. I see the subject and in my minds eye I see a product. The only way I am even able to be even somewhat successful at that is that I forget about that part of it. And I remember that photography is about light, and shadow, and color that simplicity is the answer. Thee are times when light and shadow and a dash of color is all I need.
One of the good points of being a small company that specializes in custom products for its customer , is that we can respond to those request quickly. As a matter of fact all of our wall clocks are individually made when ordered. So when a customer request changes to a clock design that he intends as a present for his sons fifth birthday we are able to oblige him. So after five messages I get the finial one that says supplely “That it” This custom designed quartz wall clock was purchased through our ESTY shop , which I find make communication between me and my customers hassle free by keeping it very simple for my customers and me
