We have been approved as a FedEx Authorized Ship Center
! We are scheduled to begin shipping operations via FedEx Express and FedEx Ground on April 5th, 2006. Our leather boutique will also be open to the public at that time. All the residents of Grand Island, NY and the neighboring localities like Niagara Falls and Lewiston, NY are welcome to visit us starting Wednesday, April 5, 2006.
Plus, we also look forward to welcoming all the tourists in the area, especially during the travel season throughout the summer and fall.
Please note that there is no other shipping center in Grand Island and residents are forced to use the FedEx Kinkos in Tonawanda, NY, which is 15 miles away. So we are hopeful to provide the same services as Kinkos (for the same price) for Grand Island residents. We will not charge surcharges for our customers. The FedEx List Prices will be the price that customers pay to ship all packages through us, whether Express or Ground.
We are conveniently located in the Harbor Towne Office Complex on Baseline Road.
For directions and hours of operations, please visit our website at www.IslandShipCenter.com
has recently launched 6 new hubs in 2005 for processing ground shipments and as a result the delivery times packages delivered to many cities have decreased and the reliability has increased. Please note this information from the FedEx website:When it comes to cost-effective ground delivery, FedEx Ground operates one of the fastest overall networks in the business and is a great choice for your customers. On June 6, FedEx Ground cut a full day off the transit times for an additional 9,174 routes. This means faster service between a number of key U.S. cities, including:Service between Toledo, Ohio, and Woodbridge, N.J., decreased from 3 business days to 2.
Service between Harrisburg, Penn., and Champaign, Ill., decreased from 3 business days to 2.
Service between Los Angeles, Calif., and Kansas City, Kan., decreased from 4 business days to 3.
Service between Salt Lake City, Utah, and Fort Worth, Texas, decreased from 4 business days to 3.
More information will be provided on our website about this project and about special deals.The CLC Team

For most products on our website, we offer monogramming. Since many customers ask us about the details of this monogramming procedure, we have added a hyperlink on our site which can be viewed by clicking on the word "Monogram" at the bottom of each item's description.
If this word does not appear, then this particular item being viewed cannot be monogrammed, mostly due to the type of leather used or the shape of the item, which prevents us from placing it on the imprinting machine.
The information that appears when one clicks on the word "Monogram," is as follows:
|Monogramming is available with this item. If purchased, stamped initials will be placed at the bottom right corner (or for some items, in the center). |
We "blind deboss" using a classic block-letter font. Blind debossing means the initials are the same color as the leather item being stamped (Gold or Silver foil stamping is available, if requested in the “Comments” section at the time of checkout).
Please allow 1-2 extra days for delivery.
Note: Personalized items may not be returned.
You may email us or call us for additional information.

We were quite surprised to find that burgundy leather portfolio
turns up different results compared to typing burgandy leather portfolio
in Google. In fact, being cognizant of the fact that color and colour are correct variations of the same word (spelled differently on each side of the Atlantic ocean), we still were amazed to find that people are likely to spell the word "burgundy" as "burgandy" and both spellings seem to be used often in searches.
Google still prompts for the former spelling by the way, when a searcher uses "burgandy."
What to do when selling burgundy (or burgandy) colored leather goods and gifts? Well, we just stick with burgundy for now but are really thinking of adding burgandy to some of the product options and / or descriptions so as to cater to all our potential customers who are prone to searching for burgandy leather gifts
versus burgundy leather gifts

Get ready to pay for your email. Although AOL and Yahoo! are starting to penalize bulk email senders at first (beginning later this year) by charging 1/4 of a penny to 1 cent for each email delivered to an inbox, this is only the beginning of what everyone fears. Read on for more info.
