What better way for a business to start out a new decade than to move into a big, beautiful building? After 20 years of expanding, and 8 years of renting, Photodon's owners, Don and Jeanette Basch, decided it was time to invest in their own building. "We've known for quite a while that the business was growing out of our rented space. We just needed to find the right fit," said Don. Continue reading
Andy was on a mission to find a screen protector that would keep his new 55-inch television protected from scratches AND his eyes protected from eye strain. After researching the Photodon website, he enthusiastically placed his order with an MXB blue light cut screen protector, but it wasn’t just for his large gaming television monitor. He also bought MXB blue light cut screen protectors for a 2nd TV and for his iPhone!
Reason (and we install – fairly local)
Why? Andy’s biggest concern, even ahead of keeping his devices in pristine condition, was conserving his eye health. He was trying to diminish his chances of developing macular degeneration like his grandma had and like his mom has now. Photodon’s blue light cut screen protectors can help to reduce the threat of this potentially life-altering condition.
Andy chose Photodon for its MXB screen protectors because his research led him to us. Our informational site, accompanied by blogs, research, and videos, helped convince him and his parents to use our MXB screen protectors to protect their devices and their eye health.
And because Andy lives relatively close to the Photodon shop, he was able to have us install his new MXB screen protector onto his 55-inch television for him in our cleanroom.
How is it working for Andy now? “The protectors are amazing! My eyes do not get tired as quickly as they did, and I am sleeping better than I was before them.”

If you're reading this blog post, chances are you already know what an optical comparator is. Until we heard from a customer at Modern Manufacturing & Engineering, WE didn't know. But we were soon schooled in the optical comparator universe.
For those who DON'T know what an optical comparator is, here is a Wikipedia explanation:
What is a Microfiber Cloth?
The word "microfiber," as you can imagine, means small fiber. How small you ask? I could go on and on using words such as denier, decitex, and micrometers, but who really knows THOSE words? So instead of making you go to the web (unless you're smarter than me), I’ll put it in layman’s terms: Most microfibers are about 1/5 of the diameter of a human hair. These synthetic microfibers are most commonly made from polyester and polyamide.
The Mascoutah Police Department of Mascoutah, IL came to Photodon for help with solving a privacy problem. Since coming up with custom solutions for our customers is what we do best, we were well-equipped and happy to help.
Police officers use computers in their police cars so that they have ready access to information. A great deal of public information is retrieved through these computers — information necessary for them to do their jobs effectively. Why? Sometimes they need to get the position of other police officers in the area, or they need to look up suspect information at a crime scene. These computers — often ruggedized tablets –are also used for record-keeping and tracking vital data such as license plates.
The Mascoutah Police Department's Challenge: Help Us Keep Public Information Protected
Lieutenant Matt S. called us and said that his department's Motion R12 Rugged tablets were installed on the dash of their squad cars. The problem? When the officers leave the car, the screen is left in plain view, leaving the public's personal information in the database vulnerable to wandering eyes.
He wondered if we had any suggestions as to how to help keep information on the screen from being seen by people outside the car. He explained that it is their duty to protect the public's private data.
We offered to send 5"x3" samples of our privacy filter materials to Lieutenant Matt so that he and his colleagues could decide which of our filter options would work best to solve their problem. We offer three types of privacy filters from which they could choose:
After receiving the samples, the team of police officers decided to purchase the 2-way adhesive privacy filter for the computers in their squad cars. Problem solved. Here is what Lieutenant Matt had to say:
We love helping our customers solve problems, especially in protecting their digital gear from damage, glare, and visual data breaches. We can make privacy filters for first responders, emergency personnel, fire departments, and more. If we don't have a particular privacy filter on our website, we will custom cut the filters for your device. Custom is what we do.

Privacy filters, also known as privacy screens, are like a set of vertical blinds for your computer monitor or any device with a screen but on a Nanoscale. Most modern-day filters are only the thickness of a common business card — .012” (.3 mm). Unlike vertical blinds, the louvers are permanently set in the full open (on edge) position. There are approximately 42 louvers in the 12-pt. letter “a” shown below. This makes for about 715 of these louvers per inch (25.4mm) and equates to thousands of mini-louvers per typical screen. The thickness of a dollar bill (.0043”) is approximately the same thickness as 2 louvers in the images below.
Because June is Computer Vision Syndrome Awareness Month, we thought we'd showcase how Photodon's MXB blue light-cut film can help not only eye-health but overall health.
The American Opthomalic Association warns against the dangers of long periods of exposure from computers and other digital screens on the health of our eyes. Computer Vision Syndrome is basically eye strain and blurred vision due to staring at digital screens for long periods of time.
Several months ago, a new customer named Jason – an owner of a Maaco Collision Repair & Auto Painting business in Minnesota – called Photodon. His problem? He had been purchasing a protective cover for his Satorius TopMix2 Paint Terminal that
A) didn't fit (it was like a bag around the machine);
B) was expensive (around $100.00); and
C) had to be replaced monthly because the plastic would get damaged when the paint had to be cleaned off it.
The TopMix touch screen is connected to a scale and mixer. When the paint is mixed, as you can imagine, it can splatter. In addition, the paint shop workers often touch the screen with gloves that have paint on them. This means that the very expensive touch screen needs to be protected.
Jason explained, "I use a paint thinner to clean the screen about once a week, and the protector I'm using gets damaged quickly. I'm spending a fortune on these protective covers. "I'm hoping you can help me."
