WE PRIORITIZE CUSTOMER SERVICE
Every pair of glasses has a story of unique style made up of many chapters.
A story in which the so many different professionals are protagonists who meet one another with their expertise: the licensors, the QW Group designers, the materials research section and the technical and prototype development department.
Above all this is a story that speaks of quality, excellence and passion. Because from the actual idea to the final realization, all the elements are dealt with in detail to produce sought-after glasses that are admired all over the world.
Creating a pair of eyeglasses is a combination of art and product design. While there are systematic elements including conceptualizing and evaluating ideas to create a tangible product, the inspiration that goes behind it makes designing eyeglasses a work of art.
Inspiration can come from anyone, anywhere and everywhere. The colors of a sunrise, an intricate fabric or complex brushstrokes of a painting can spark inspiration. Our designers are always on the hunt for new ideas and we love hearing feedback from our customers too.
Our designers start with designing by hand as it helps them connect to their work more. They start with sketching a shape, and then will scan and convert it into a digital format using a vector based drawing software.
Once a design is complete, our designers will revisit it again a few days later to make tweaks. Evaluation plays a huge role to ensure that our designs are perfect.
While our designers are creating different shapes, they also put into consideration of the theme for their collection to ensure that it is coherent. When designs are complete, our designers send their drawings and design instructions on their choice of colors and materials to our production department.
Our production department will review and then convert their designs into technical drawings that can be made into a frame mold.
Our production department will send prototypes of the designs back to our designers. These prototypes are handmade samples so our designers can review the quality, size and integrity of the design before our workshop start a process called tooling. Tooling is when the frame mold is made and used to produce high volumes of the frames.
So, how are glasses made?
At Quick wonder, we believe the best place to start is with the best materials. That's why every month, we receive a delivery of the best acetate from Chinese best supplier.
Outside our workshop, you'll often hear the deafening buzz of our in-house CNC machine. A CNC machine cuts a general frame shape from raw acetate sheets.
On your local beach, you'll often find smooth pebbles.
Over time, natural abrasion between the sand and small stones all rub against one another to gradually become smoother. Tumbling our frames has the same result. No sand though.
We use this process to remove marks and scratches from the previous stage of machine cutting our frames. Mesmerizing to watch, we put our frames inside large barrels with what is known as ‘tumbling media’.
Very simply, the frames and media are thrown around inside the barrel via rotation to create friction and polishing. Frames are hand-buffed multiple times on a polishing wheel for an extra-glossy finish.
Testing our hinges to make sure they can withstand the occasional pull, push, or nudge
We custom-cut and polish the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. Our frames come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
All components of the eyewear frames and lens, from the surfaces to the lenses, are checked piece by piece. During this phase the eyewear fit is also guaranteed.
Lastly, every single piece is arranged to be sold and placed in the specific packaging belonging to each brand.
