Welcome to the new Mobius ordering system.
About 6 months ago I made the decision to reduce the size of my crew substantially. I'd been reducing it slowly over the past few years but the final reduction marked a change in my business. I started Mobius nine years ago with the desire & intention to make the highest quality innovative glass I could. As our business grew and evolved my intention never wavered, however after the first few years of Mobius, my focus moved from torch time to sales and crew management. The amount of creative torch time I needed never materialized... So this is where a website comes in…
A website..... This is such a different way of approaching sales, at this point I have to think of this change as a 1 year "experiment". I put a lot of time into making this experience as simple and informative as possible. Hopefully this streamlines your ordering experience. I think it will simplify things for me, enabling far more color work to be made. More color work is our biggest request and the ultimate goal of this website.
You are probably now thinking... "Is Mobius selling retail now too?". No. We are not selling any functional production items direct. You will see a "shop" link on the site where we are retailing small accessories and brand related "swag" but we ARE NOT selling what you are selling and we don't have any current plans of doing so. Wholesale is very important to us.
Since starting Mobius I have never done a price increase, even though the costs of all components used in my products have gone up. Generally, prices on all pipes went up by ~$10 wholesale. Some prices went up slightly more, but in general you can expect around a $10 price increase. Prices on accessories were not changed. The idea of raising prices makes me uncomfortable but it is past due and I felt this was as good a time as any to finally do it.
I hope this website will enable you to make your orders easily, so I can get on the torch and crank out clean color work. This is my goal with this new ordering system.
Thank you for your continued business and taking part in this "experimental" ordering system.
