Customer Spotlight: Island Watch

This is the first in a series of interviews with our customers about themselves and how they use Superior Label products. In a recent chat with Marc Frankel of Island Watch, we talked about his business, roll labels and self-inking stamps.

Q) Marc, tell us a little about your business.

A) We are an internet business I started in 2002 that sells a wide variety of watches. Many of them are unique designs that are not available in retail stores.

Q) How did you decide to get into the watch business?

A) I was working as an Aerospace Engineer for a large defense contractor. I saw a friend wearing a unique watch that caught my eye. I asked him where he got it and how much he paid. Those questions lead me to a seller in Germany from whom I purchased 10 pieces at a discount.

Q) So the business started as a side-line to a full-time job?

A) Yes. In the beginning I did it just for the thrill of running my own business, but over time it blossomed into a full-time business.

Q) How long did it take for the business to develop to the point where you went full-time?

A) Around 11 years. I’m very averse to risk, so during that time I continued with my full-time Engineering job and grew the watch business nights and weekends. Finally leaving my full-time job to operate Island Watch as my new “full time” job was the smartest move I ever made. I haven’t looked back.

Q) How did you decide to do business with Superior?

A) I was buying labels from a large online store, but they stopped making them. I found Superior Labels and they still manufacture labels on rolls, (who doesn’t need labels on rolls!) and a superior product at that. I have also bought self-inking stampers. The price is less than my local supplier and it was delivered super-fast. Again the quality of the stamper is top-notch.

Thanks Marc, we certainly appreciate your business and wish you continued success!
