Affordable Quality Sunglasses – Premium Custom Sunglasses by S&F

Quality affordable sunglasses
When founding Staple & Ford we were adamant that our sunglasses will be handmade with only the best materials and that the sale price will be affordable to the masses. At £80 a pair, our custom sunglasses are highly affordable when compared with other sunglasses brands using like for like materials. Our pricing even compares or beats brands using the cheapest form of production, injection moulded frames.

So this begs the question, how can we afford to offer top end materials at such competitive prices? The key is in the supply chain. Staple & Ford purchases the raw materials direct from the manufacturers, this allows us to avoid any mark up from agents or handlers. From there we hand build the custom sunglasses from our office in Cheshire, England.

Most sunglasses brands will then look to sell their product to wholesalers or to retailers. Wholesalers or retailers will look to add 50%-150% margin on the sunglasses, significantly increasing the cost to you. Further to this if a sunglasses brand is selling their products to retailers or wholesalers they will be forced by contract to sell their products at the same price direct to the client.

S&F only sell our Premium Custom Sunglasses exclusively through our website. This allows us to cut out any wholesalers or retailers margin, allowing us to offer our customers excellent value for money.

S&F Quality Custom Sunglasses – Frame Materials

Design your own sunglasses
At Staple and Ford, quality is at the heart of everything we do. Once we were settled on the design of our custom sunglasses, the next step was to select the materials to bring the design from concept to reality. There are a number of considerations that sunglasses manufactures need to consider when selecting frame materials; texture, look, cost, etc.

An easy one for S&F was cost, we simply don’t allow cost to dictate the materials that we use. Therefore injection moulded materials were a none starter as these are the cheapest form of material to use for sunglasses. It is common place with the vast majority of the larger brands to use injection moulded materials and unfortunately these cost savings are not passed onto the customer.

However at S&F we try to be different by not only using the best materials but also doing our best to keep our custom sunglasses affordable to our clients. At S&F we use a material called Acetate. Acetate has a forgiving texture making it a comfortable product to touch and wear. Rather than injecting the substance into a mass produced mould, Acetate comes in block form. Our custom sunglasses are then handcrafted from the block of Acetate into their individual components; Frames and Temples.

Acetate sunglasses
In order to add strength and durability to our custom sunglasses, a stainless steel rod is inserted into the temples (arms). This allows the handmade product to retain its structure and also allows an individual to influence the shape to suit their personal requirements.

Finally the look of a handcrafted Acetate is second to none. An acetate can beautifully capture the sunlight and deal with it in a whole range of ways. The range of colour options and combinations is almost limit less with Acetate. S&F have considered hundreds of shortlisted acetates for our premium custom sunglasses to give you what we believe are the highlights. Further to this rather than restricting you to a single acetate option, S&F allows you to mix and match your frame acetate with differing temple colours. This gives you the freedom to create over 70 different combinations of custom sunglasses. Design your own sunglasses in our shop by Clicking Here.
