Find A 3M DI-NOC Installer With Our New Installer Directory

Update 6/2/10: We’ve decided to remove the installers directory at this time.\r\n\r\nWe’ve launched a new feature on Carbon Fiber Film to continue and be the best resource anywhere for 3M’s carbon fiber DI-NOC vinyl.  We now have an installer’s directory where we hope to have include a list of companies and individuals anywhere in the world that have the expertise to install 3M’s DI-NOC material.  Thew new directory is for two types of people:\r\n

Consumers Looking For Installers

\r\n3M DI-NOC is very easy to install compared to other vinyls out there in the market, but let’s face, installing just isn’t for everybody.  You may have found this great material, but you’d rather have a shop or an experienced individual install it for you.  Our installer’s directory will hopefully become a huge organized list of installers (both companies and individuals) around the world.  You can check out our installer’s directory here.\r\n\r\nThere are two types of listings, free and paid.  Free listings have limited data, only the name of the installer, their city/state/zip location, reviews, and an e-mail form to contact them.  Obviously anybody can add a free listing, so proceed with caution and be sure to post a review of your experience to help fellow customers out.  Paid listings can be trusted more since the company/individual had to pay to have all their information listed, so you can take them more seriously.  You will find full contact information, including phone #’s, addresses, integrated Google maps for easy directions, website link, and much much more.  You will also see the “CFF Directory paid member” badge in the listing.\r\n

Installer’s To Add Your Listings

\r\nIf you are an experienced installer, either as an individual or a company, and would like to offer your installation services of 3M’s DI-NOC material, then consider adding yourself into our directory.  Our directory harnesses the traffic and brand name behind Carbon Fiber Film and Carbon Fiber Gear to drive awareness to installers around the world.  We have the largest carbon fiber site, and the largest carbon fiber DI-NOC site on the web, we will heavily promote our installer’s directory through a wide range of marketing efforts.  Your addition into our directory can generate new business and bring customers right to your door.\r\n\r\nWe’re continually tweaking and improving on the directory, so we always appreciate your feedback.  Currently the best way to understand the differences between a free and paid membership listing is to take a look at the comparison chart.  I will breakdown some of the main features so you have a better understanding what type of membership to choose between the three available.\r\n

Free Membership

\r\nA free member will be listed in our directory for three months, and then you can choose to either renew or upgrade your listing.  As a free member, your listing will display your name/shop name, your city/state/zip, and customers will have the ability to rate/review you (these are moderated by CFF staff prior to going live).  Your listing will also include a note that the listing can be upgraded, and will have a “Free Member” badge.  Potential customers will have the ability to e-mail you through a form.  Once you are logged in, you will be able to view statistics of your listing, like how many people have looked at it and how many e-mails you have received.\r\n

Silver Membership

\r\nAs a silver member, you will be on a monthly plan that costs $9.95/month…about 33 cents a day.  One installation will make your money back.  As a paid member, your listing is much more complete, with the following features:\r\n


  • You may upload your company logo onto your listing
  • \r\n

  • You may include a link to your website, and your statistics will show how many clicks went to your site
  • \r\n

  • You can have a description up to 300 characters of what you do
  • \r\n

  • You can post your phone number
  • \r\n

  • You can post your full address, not just the city/state/zip
  • \r\n

  • You can have full Google Maps integration right on your listing, making it easy for potential customers to map their route to your location and get directions
  • \r\n

  • Customers will have the ability to e-mail you through your listing, your statistics will show how many e-mails you’ve received
  • \r\n

  • Customers can easily print your listing in a clean format
  • \r\n

  • Your listing will also be available for download in a PDF format for customers
  • \r\n

  • Customers can rate/review you or your shop
  • \r\n

  • You can add up to 5 images on your listings, we recommend featuring some work you’ve done
  • \r\n

  • Your listing will get a paid member badge which shows potential customers they can potentially trust you more than a free member
  • \r\n

  • You will be able to view statistics of how many people have looked at your listing in your administration
  • \r\n

\r\nAs you can see, there are tons of features for just a few cents per day.  All of the above are things that will more likely convert potential customers to you.\r\n

Gold Membership

\r\nAs a gold member you get everything in silver, but your description size gets 500 characters, and your listing will randomly appear on our “Featured Installers” box that is located on every page of the installer directory.  A gold membership is a 1 year long membership, and by pre-paying just $99.95 for the year, you save $19.45 a year over silver membership.  For just $8.33/month you can become a gold member…which works out to about 28 cents a day.\r\n

Fine Print

\r\nYou cannot promote the selling of 3M DI-NOC material on your listing, only the installation service.  You cannot have multiple listings for the same shop/individual.  That means if you’re paying for a silver membership, you cannot add another free listing.  All listings are manually moderated and approved by CFF staff.\r\n

In Conclusion…

\r\nWhile we know this directory is new, and will take some time to populate, we believe it will be a valuable resource to both installers as well as consumers looking for installers.  As mentioned above, we’re always looking to improve the site and service we provide, feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback.
