New Dick Nite Order Page - No More Waiting!

17 posts in this topic

I finally fixed the order problem for you guys!

I built a new order page for TackleUndergrounders!

No more of the old, "send an email, wait for a response and for me to pack the order and weigh it so I can send you a PayPal invoice, wait for a response, me get the payment, write up the order in the computer, put the shipment into the UPS software, print the label, and ship the order all while you wait again" process...

Trust me, I appreciate the hassle it has been for all of you, and I assure it has been no cake-walk here either...

Well, it's all fixed, in place, and ready to roll!

Now, you simply go to the site, click "Add to Cart" for the items you want, enter your information for PayPal, click "Check Out" and it automatically gives you your approximately 65% discount, figures the shipping (using a flat $10 rate now - I'll eat whatever more it is in order to expedite this process), takes your payment, and sends the order directly to my shipping department!

Orders should ship the next business day from now on!

Here's the link to the new order page - it's the same as the old link:

http://www.dicknite.com/TU_Lander.htm

You might want to bookmark it, make it a favorite, or whatever it is called in your browser, because it is not accessible from the main web site. It is only for TackleUnderground members and their friends and families!

You are still getting the same price large-scale manufacturers get. It's in the neighborhood of 65% off of retail. The prices listed on the site include the discount, so there are no codes to put in, or hoops to jump through. Since you are going there from TU, I know you are legit!

I plan on adding a few things to it in the future, like clicking on each paint color and having it pop up a window with information about it, MSDS sheet downloads, and the like, but for now, this is going to solve the biggest problem we have had - you having to wait for this fat old-guy to catch up enough to get the orders processed manually!

I really want to thank you all for your patience over the past several years. You have been more than generous with your understanding and I can't express how much that has meant to me.

TackleUndergrounders are the absolute best customers I have!

Thanks again,

Dick

That's the best news I've heard all week!! I have bookmarked the page and will order some S83 to go along with the S81 i just got.

@Ned...

Try Highland woodworking's website. They carry Bloxygen and i think it's $9 a can. Ok... 9.99 a can... Here's the link! The site as a whole is a goldmine of stuff for luremakers.

I have the same good fortune with Highland. Living near Atlanta has a lot of drawbacks but it has its good points too!

The liquid plastic top-coat (S-83) is a product formulated for dipping foam lures (like maybe spin-n-glows or cheaters) in prior to painting for a smooth finish. Not really very durable as a top-coat, but some folks like it for a sealer/base and a few actually use it for a top-coat.

The "G" series of paints are lacquer based, fluorescent paints. Day Glow Pink is very popular for Salmon, Trout, Shad, and other lures.

The "G" series is as close to opaque as we make (other than white and black). Most people lay a base coat of bright white and then apply the Day Glow's.

G79 is our Orange Nite Glow, G80 is our regular Nite Glow. They both charge up with light and glow in the dark. They both REQUIRE a top-coat, as they oxidize without it.

Our "S" series of paints is transparent. Many are fluorescent, and they allow the base color to show through. Good for a blue or flame stripe down the side of a lure, or for airbrushing patterns.

The "I" series is our transparent paints with Holographic Glitter in them.

I guess one of the things I should put on that order page is a link to a pdf file of descriptions and applications, eh?

Maybe with a picture of the individual colors as well?

That would work for me. :)

I ordered some on thursday, and received it yesterday. Tried my first lure with it by dipping it and was very happy with the results. Did get some bleeding on the red gills, but I think it was because I didn't dry it good enough before dipping. Thanks DN!

I did some work to the page and made it so you can now click on the pictures and see a photo of each color.

As we all know, monitors are very seldom color-correct and don't show fluorescence well, so keep that in mind when viewing the pictures.

Still working on the application page.

Glad to see by nedyarb's post that things are working a lot more smoothly.
