Here it is, the exclusive first glimpse of one of the books from the new Apollo Blinds collection ahead of the official launch next week.

New Apollo Blinds collection

We can’t show you any more than this at the moment as we’re keeping the collections under wraps ahead of the mother of all launches on Wednesday.

Our network of Apollo Blinds guys and gals are travelling from all corners of the UK and Ireland to be the first to see the new collections. The excitement at Apollo HQ is at fever pitch and we’re all working flat out ahead of what we hope will be a fantastic launch.

We’re effervescent because we’ve created something special with our new Verticals and Rollers collections. They’re that good they’ll take your breath away. They’re right on the money when it comes to being at the cutting edge of window blind and interior design trends.

The picture above will have to suffice for now but we will be posting plenty more this time next week so you can see for yourself the stunning new collections from Apollo Blinds.

Last week a friend of Apollo Blinds asked why we weren’t making more of a song and dance about our numerous appearances on TV.

It was a great point well made because we’ve had more than our fair share of TV exposure already this year.

We’ve been on Sarah Beeny’s new Channel 4 TV series Help! My House is Falling Down – which involved our team in Northampton helping the show. We also supply products for ITV’s 60 Minute Makeover which never seems to be off our screens. And we’ve also run a very successful adverting campaign over the summer showcasing our gorgeous collections on Home TV.

We’re now busy making amendments to our website so visitors to will be left in no doubt of our TV credentials. We’ll be making sure visitors can watch clips of our ads and see for themselves why Apollo Blinds is attracting so much attention.

So keep an eye on our website, not just for more Apollo on TV, but for pictures and details of our new collections which will also be launched very soon.

At the end of this month our franchise owners will converge on a hotel close to our HQ for a very special get-together.

They are coming from far and wide to attend the launch of our new collections. They will be the first people to get hold of our new Vertical and Roller blind collection books which are absolutely breathtaking.

Our design team has been working flat-out for more than a year to bring these collections together. And they have been worth all the hard work as they are stunning and at the cutting edge of window blind and interior design trends. Here’s a sneak preview.

The new collections will be the highlight of a jam-packed day which will also include the unveiling of our new customer care initiative, discussing the company’s strategy for 2011 and the launched of our revamped franchisee intranet.

But arguably the most important aspect of the day is the opportunity for all our franchisee owners to get together. The day will hectic, which is why we’ve also laid on dinner in the evening where everyone can let their hair down.
