Yes, but, you can't add text if the video is made in portrait mode.

sippify.com is the most elegant DTC solution. But, it's pretty exclusive and focusing just in Paso Robles...for now.

Let's support our friends that take time to write a book. That, in itself, is something to celebrate. Congrats to Len!

Well, store-wise the experience was great. They are very knowledgable and helpful. But, that's where it stops. While I understand Calico isn't a delivery company, they should do more to manage that all-important part of the sales process. We waited the usual 8 weeks for a custom sofa and when it was delivered, the movers broke the leg before it even got to our elevator. I actually pointed out the missing and leg and handed a very broken leg to the surprised mover. "Oops" was all he could muster. They took it back to the truck and I called Calico. They had to manufacture another leg and have it repaired locally. Notice I said "repair" of a custom sofa before we even received it. Three more weeks and we agreed to a set delivery time. It's already an hour late. So, I had to call Calico to get a status. They should be better at managing this. The driver called and said he is 20-30 min away. I changed my plans for the first ill-fated delivery and scheduled time off for this delivery and I this is inconvenient. On the positive side (the sofa is still not here, so I can't say with any certainly if this will be a successful delivery) they did a great job re-upholstering an antique chair. We picked that up ourselves. I also asked for a discount for my inconvenience and the fact that we paid full price for a custom sofa and it needed repairs before we accepted delivery. They did grant a 5% discount but I had to ask.
