Why I Invented PerfectSealTM
In 1988 a customer contacted my company to purchase three electric embossers. There was only one brand available at the time, and I had no experience with the unit at all. I did some research with users and dealers and found this brand of electric seal was undependable. I should have known when the manufacturer said it had just decreased the warranty to sixty days from purchase. The customer was going to purchase these units no matter what my advice. In the next sixty days, I made five repair trips and had no support from the manufacturer. The customer and I became very frustrated at such a poor quality product. My wife said: “why don’t you just build your own?” I think she was just sick of hearing me complain, but she was right! Now being very familiar with the mechanics of this brand of electric seal, I felt I knew what not to do, so I began a three year endeavor. I consulted seal users, design engineers, product manufacturers, studied design criteria, calculated force and drew more sketches than I had ever done before in my life. I was spending money with machinists for test samples, just to throw them in the dumpster due to a design flaw.
The criteria was easy: (1) a seal impression from a touch-of-a-button, (2) extended life of electric models over hand held models and (3) no chance for repetitive stress injury. Sounds simple doesn’t it. In 1991, after fourteen designs and about a hundred variables, one simple design worked. When I made the very first test impression, my first word was “perfect”. That was the basis for the name PerfectSeal™. The simple design with only two moving parts has proven durability and dependability time and time again. In April of 2005, I implemented the fifth generation of updates, but still have not changed from the original design. My PerfectSeal™ heavy duty high volume units produce a minimum of 200,000 high quality impressions from just a touch of the button. These units are supported with a sixty day “final approval” time on one unit to assure each customers total satisfaction and have an unmatched TWO YEAR or 200,000 impression performance warranty.
It is much easier to justify the cost of an excellent performing quality product, than to justify a poor quality product to less cost. Fortunately, PerfectSeal™ is most definitely a better product for less cost. Nothing can be more aggravating than being “left out in the cold” if the product does not perform well or being left all alone without manufacturer support. The “final approval” time on one unit allows a first time user to be convinced or return it. If you don’t like your PerfectSeal™…. Don’t keep it! This policy was created because I am so confident of the user safety, value and performance of PerfectSeal™, and that you will be nothing short of “impressed” with every impression. I want you to be convinced too!
The value of any electric embosser should be the increased durability, extended life over manual embossers and the insurance of removing any chance of repetitive-stress injury during use. Repetitive stress injury is a major concern. One claim could cost several thousand dollars and a major loss of employee time. Companies spend thousands on ergonomic products for computers, desks, tables, chairs etc., and are looking to minimize risk and increase performance when using their seals and other marking products.
Electric seals are changing from heavy-duty high volume users only, to include the standard duty users like notaries, tag agents, architects, schools and small court systems at a more affordable price. PerfectSeal™ MOTORIZED is a standard duty electric embosser that operates a common die holder from an existing or new hand held embosser. This innovative design will convert any existing manual hand held seal to an electric operation at the lowest price ever offered. An unlimited amount of hand held seals can be converted to a “no stress” electric operation.
