Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Don't believe this company's guarantee of customer satisfaction.  ("If you are not satisfied with the frame upon delivery, we will continue to work on the frame until you are satisfied.")  Or their promise that following a $100 deposit, the balance will be due upon delivery of a finished frame.  It was my experience that the company kept my $350 and delivered nothing.

During a very lengthy design process, my repeated requests for a larger, stylish frame were ignored by the West Texas design team, who favor the small frames that were in vogue a decade ago.  "You have repeatedly rejected the advice and recommendations of the most experienced eyewear designers/artists/engineers in the world," wrote Randy Barnett, the company's CEO.  "There will be no refunds."

So much for customer satisfaction.  Avoid this company.

Avoid this online company!

AUTHOR: Jodie J. - (United States of America)

To summarize my experience with this online business:

1)  I paid the required $100 down payment for a customized frame.

2)  I was forced to pay another $250 to continue work on the frame, although this was not a part of my agreement with Indivijual Eyewear.

3)  The owner of the business, Randy Barnett, subsequently decided that he did not want to continue working on the frame, and he refused to refund any of my money.  I received nothing for my $350.

The $500 worth of "design work" mentioned by Mr. Barnett is his subjective value for his efforts, which probably amounted to a couple of hours of work.

This Report is Totally Untrue

AUTHOR: Randy Barnett - (United States of America)

This report is nonsense.  This woman has lost some marbles.  We did over $500. of design work for her and after all that she sent an email that said  "you did a great design job"....  But when requested to pay the balance due she refused and started spreading these malicious lies.   We have designed and hand-crafted custom eyeglass and sunglass frames for satisfied clients all around the world.  Please review our testimonials on our website at www.Indivijual.com
