The Vernal Equinox

spring is here

Spring begins tomorrow morning at 7:02 am. This event is also known as the “Vernal Equinox,” which are Latin words meaning equal night.  

 For those of us here in the Midwest, spring marks the time when we all begin to look forward to increased daylight, warmer temperatures, and to see our flowers and trees beginning to bloom.

With the beginning of spring, each of us is reminded that once again it’s time to refresh ourselves, forget those old worn out patterns; it’s time to begin anew!

This is not only true in our personal lives, but also should be true in our business lives as well. Spring is a time when we ought to stop and take a look at what we are doing to see if maybe there is a better way of doing them.

Take for instance the subjects of Product Design and Service.  You know, in business a lot of companies can manufacture & ship something for you.  Many foreign imports are merely copies of a product or design that was originally produced in America.  Perhaps by now you’re tired of those old boring copies, ideas, and designs. Maybe you’re fed up with inadequate service!  Well, if you are then –

It’s time to contact Sharn Enterprises, Inc.

Why Pay More? Buy Direct from the Manufacturer!

When you buy direct from the manufacturer, there is no middleman. More importantly, there isn’t any extra markups -SAVING YOU around 50% to 75%! From the manufacturer to the end consumer, the product’s price rises due to the middleman’s need to earn a decent profit for services rendered.

Some believe that in order to save a lot of money from manufacturers, you must buy an insane number of products. However, that is not the case with Sharn Enterprises, Inc.  – Sharn welcomes both small and large orders. The only thing that we have in common with other manufacturers is that the more you order, the more leverage we have in extending greater savings to you.

Sharn Enterprises, Inc. has been in business for over 37 years! Our employees are flexible, patient, and open-minded;  so we can guide you through the entire process of purchasing displays  – from design to finished product shipped anywhere in the USA.

If you are interested in buying direct from a manufacturer but are unsure of where to begin, please contact our designers/account managers at (815) 464-9715, email us at or visit our website at .

The Right-Brainers Artistic Edge

I recently read the book A Whole New Mind by Daniel Pink. To summarize, this New York Times/Business Week/Wall Street Journal/ Washington Post best seller describes some of the differences in the way people think.  Daniel Pink explains how our brain is essentially divided into two hemispheres, left and right brains.  The left side emphasizes logical, linear, sequential, computer like capabilities, while the right side emphasizes empathy, imagination, joyousness, and meaning. The premise of the book is that “Right brainers will rule the future.”

Let me explain; in this book, Pink makes the case that many of the jobs that require repetitive skills (left brain) are now being outsourced overseas where wages, benefits, and working conditions are not the same as we have in the United States.  Routine functions are increasingly being turned over to machines, and low wage employees.

From a purely manufacturing point of view, it’s difficult for many American Manufacturers to compete against outsourcing with foreign labor. Being proud American Manufacturer’s ourselves, we want both our business and our employees to be successful.  Therefore, we continue to maintain fair wages, benefits, and safe working conditions.

So how do we compete and win?  Well the answer is to offer even greater value.  If we assume that all of our competitors basically have the same technology and features,   — Well, then its Design (Right brain) – imagination, competitive pricing, and great service, that’s how you win.  Working closely with our customers to create a customized product, emphasizing quality, maximizing product capacity, and fitting comfortably within your budget, that’s what we do here at Sharn Enterprises.

It is no longer good enough to create a product that is reasonably priced and functional in today’s competitive shopping environment. Your products must also be unique and beautiful in order to capture your target shopper’s attention. Our designers are well acquainted with the challenges you face when placing your products into various retail stores.  They will carefully work with you to create a uniquely designed display that will first get your products noticed – then sold!
