About Barx Brothers
Time flies when you're having fun.
Barx Bros started in 1986, with a little bitty ad in Veterinary Forum, and I have to keep reminding myself that that's over twenty years now. In those days I had a one-page brochure with eight black and white postcard reminders. I didn't know how to draw or paint in color, only in pen & ink and pencil, and I couldn't afford to print in color anyway. In this 24-page catalog you will find 44 greeting cards, 23 postcards, client advice sheets, stationery, gifts and wildflower seeds. And a couple of the original black and white drawings.
I started this company because my pet family, which now includes a dog, cats, chickens, fish, and briefly an armadillo under the front porch, mean the world to me. My vets needed tools to stay in touch with their clients, and this seemed like a good way to do it. I have even designed things that I needed as a client, especially the Client Advice Sheets. Our products have been very successful for them, and I hope for you too.
If you've ordered from us before, you know you can expect high quality. We do our best to deliver. Most of my paintings are done from photographs of my animal family and those of friends, and this site is full of stories about who they are. We print as much as possible on recycled paper - our printers don't love it, it is expensive and hard to print on, but we stick to our guns and they do a great job for us. Our UPS and FedEx guys come late in the afternoon, so we can ship most orders out the day we get them.
We want to do everything we can to make your client communications easier, better, clearer, more successful. If you've got something you want to say to a client, we can probably help you say it. All our best ideas have come from you, our customers - tell us what you need and we will try to make it happen for you.
Thanks again for helping us grow for over twenty years. I appreciate your business and your loyalty.
