Offering your tanners eye protection that’s attractive, functional and affordable has never been so easy. In fact, it’s a snap … thanks to Podz Eyewear, Inc.!
Snap Podz is the latest eye protection style from Topeka, KS-based Podz Eyewear. The result of the company’s constant evolution, Snap Podz has a host of exciting and attractive features designed to make this product desirable to your tanners. “Snap Podz come in a variety of bright and attractive colors and can be worn for any type of tanning session,” said Tiffany Logue, Podz Sales Director. “Their most unique aspects, however, are the nose bridge and string, which are made of tan-through material – the same one used in our Soft Podz product – that ensures tanners do not develop tan lines in the eye area. We’ve tested these products in salons and know that their tan-through properties actually work.”
After six years of producing eye protection, the folks at Podz know how important versatility is. “Snap Podz get their name because the nose-piece that connects the two eyepieces literally snaps in and out of place,” Logue said. “We made them so that sunbed users who want to wear two separate eyepieces can do so, while the products can still be used for booth and/or mattress bed sessions, hence the string and nose-piece. They can be worn by any tanner!”
Given all its features and benefits, Snap Podz can be an easy retail sale for salon professionals. “Our research showed that the one reason why many tanners don’t like to wear eye protection is the fact that the nose-piece and string create tan lines,” said Logue. “Simply pointing out that these items are tan-through on Snap Podz is enough to change most tanners’ minds. At a wholesale price of $1.80 and a SRP of $3.75, they’re much more affordable than other Podz styles, yet still offer the same quality. They practically sell themselves!”
Podz Eyewear was founded in 2006 by Christy and Howard Hogan, owners of three Sun Resorts Tanning salons in Topeka. The couple became eye protection makers after seeing many of their tanning clients frequently forget to bring goggles with them when they came to tan, and becoming upset at having to purchase another pair. The couple created Classic Podz – goggles that come in a convenient carrying case that can be attached to a key chain, purse, belt loop and/or a rearview mirror.
Snap Podz are a revolution in eye protection design and function, and easily address most clients’ aversion to eye protection, thus making them an easy retail sale. The unique goggles are available through all major tanning product distribution companies. Salon owners interested in these or any Podz Eyewear/Dr. Sun products can call 785.536.3393, or visit podzeyewear.com.
