50-year-old San Diego Manufacturing Firm Sees Bright Spot in the Economy

San Diego, CA, March 22, 2009 --(PR.com)-- Gary Manufacturing is pleased to announce the launch of a new linen line, Nouvelle Roux Signature Linens. The Line is a collection of contemporary, bright, satin table linens, with gorgeous double faced napkins and table linen accessories sold exclusively at www.nouvellerouxsignature.com

“The collection is designed for event planners who want to transform the look and feel of a room, and our collection offers that in commercial grade satin linen products.” says Belinda Smith, spokesperson for Gary Manufacturing. Smith worked with event planners, Mary Daffin, and Wendy Fresques of Nouvelle Roux to design the line.

She approached Daffin and Fresques 18 months ago with the idea of putting a label in the satin linen products they were already designing for their event company, Nouvelle Roux, Inc.

“These ladies always seemed to be ahead of the curve on color trends and combinations. I thought the branding of the linens would help grow both of our businesses” said Smith. “I quickly realized Mary and Wendy were the trend experts, and we collaborated on a collection event planners could feel comfortable investing in.”

Though Smith admits this is a tough time for event planners, she thinks savvy planners are always looking for a way to set themselves apart and increase revenue.

“Investing in a quality set of commercial linens allows all event planners to showcase their design skills and recoup money on their own linens, instead of renting them,” she says. “After 2-3 events, the linens are paid for, so every future use of them is additional revenue for the event planner. The main challenge then becomes, what color to buy? Mary and Wendy have the answers because they are color trend experts.”

The collection can be seen on www.nouvelleroux.com. There, customers can also use a hands-on design tool, post to an on-line blog for question and answer time with Mary and Wendy, and view video education elements that addresses storage, care tips, tabletop design tips and loads of inspiration. Those interested in design tips from Mary and Wendy should sign up for their blog at http://www.nouvellerouxsignature.com

“Our ultimate goal is engage, educate, inspire and encourage our real and virtual communities, and in today’s market everyone is looking for a bright spot!” said Daffin.
