Website Updates | Thomas FX

We have been making quite a few changes to our website navigation lately, and more changes are on the way. 

At Thomas FX we are constantly listening to customer feedback and looking for opportunities to enhance our customers' experience while visiting our website, and purchasing from our online store. 

You will notice that all special effects equipment, new / used / rentals, has been consolidated under the new left navigation category Special Effects Equipment

All of our contact lens categories have likewise been consolidated under the new left navigation category of Theatrical Contact Lenses

The left navigation category of Visual Display has been eliminated and all products previously offered for sale under this category are now for sale under Closeout Specials .

Likewise, Books Gear & Gak items are now also available only under closeout specials. The Books Gear & Gak left nav category has been eliminated. 

A new sub category has been added to the Blood & Makeup FX category . . . Glow In The Dark Makeup

All of these changes are designed to make it easier to find what you are looking for. 

More changes and website upgrades will follow. . . . 

Stay Tuned, and thank you for your continued loyalty and especially for your purchases.

This Is A Test

You may have noticed our Blog postings have been extremely light lately. 

Software upgrades to our Blog platform have been creating chaos for the past few months and every time we posted, a programmer from our development team had to go in and fix the code.

Today, my Project Manager informed me that the development team "Thinks" they have solved the problem. 

Accordingly, THIS IS A TEST. If you see any broken links, missing images, or truncated text, you, and the world, will know they have failed.

Meanwhile, we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Non Toxic Colored Smoke Effects - New Product

You might have noticed lighter than usual posting this week. For the past several days we have been hard at work making our new product line ready for market, and adding it to the Thomas FX Online Store.

Now, thanks to a solid effort by our entire team, I am pleased to announce this latest Thomas FX product line . . . Non Toxic Colored Smoke Effects. Perfect for hazmat training, movie making, or special events, it can be used as a stand alone smoke effect, or combined with fireworks to enhance displays.

Colored Smoke Effects is not a "hazardous" good. As such, it can be safely handled and inexpensively transported via traditional carriers without incurring hazardous goods handling charges. This is not a controlled pyrotechnic product, and it is not a firework. Of even more importance, it is NOT a toxic substance. We recommend that you do not use this product indoors as the smoke WILL STAIN anything it comes into contact with.

Colored Smoke Effects are available in two sizes, the regular smoke effect which generates about 1250 cubic feet of colored smoke during a period of two to four minutes, and the larger high volume version which generates about 2500 cubic feet of smoke in the same period of time. Non Toxic Colored Smoke Effects are sold in packages of 5 units. You can purchase packs of five single colors, or a multi pack that includes 5 different colors. Available colors include: White, Blue, Purple, Red, Orange, and Yellow.

We have created a new product category SMOKE EFFECTS in our online store. Colored Smoke Effects can also be purchased Online on the HAUNT EFFECTS page under our HALLOWEEN SUPPLIES category. Since this is NOT a pyrotechnic product, or a firework, you do not require a pyrotechnician's licence, or special permit to purchase it. Colored Smoke Effects from Thomas FX can be purchased year round by members of the general public.

For your convenience we have produced a demonstration video and posted it on our YouTube page this morning. Hopefully you will find it useful, informative and perhaps even entertaining.

Thomas FX remains committed to supporting film and entertainment industry productions around the world by suppling high quality, hard to find, special effects production supplies. Our Corporate Mission is to make special effects magic available to all.
