1-800 CONTACTS was founded in 1995 by two entrepreneurs who sought to address contact lens wearers' basic frustrations. Wearing contacts themselves, they understood that contact lenses could be expensive and inconvenient to replace. With that in mind, they set out to offer low prices, convenient ordering and fast delivery to their customers. Their plan to accomplish this centered on buying contact lenses in large quantities to get the best prices and housing a large contact lens inventory so customers' prescriptions would be in stock and ready to ship. Superior customer service and easy ordering were also key to their plan, two benefits that distinguished them from the competition.

Today, 1-800 CONTACTS is the world's largest contact lens store«, selling more contacts every day than any other optical goods retailer. 1-800 CONTACTS stocks more almost 10 million contact lenses (the world's largest inventory) and delivers over 150,000 every day directly to customers. The company's growth is a testament to the benefits it offers to contact lens wearers seeking a hassle-free, quick and affordable way to replace their contact lenses.

About Specimens

Specimen Certificates are actual certificates that have never been issued. They were usually kept by the printers in their permanent archives as their only example of a particular certificate. Sometimes you will see a hand stamp on the certificate that says "Do not remove from file".

Specimens were also used to show prospective clients different types of certificate designs that were available. Specimen certificates are usually much scarcer than issued certificates. In fact, many times they are the only way to get a certificate for a particular company because the issued certificates were redeemed and destroyed. In a few instances, Specimen certificates we made for a company but were never used because a different design was chosen by the company.

These certificates are normally stamped "Specimen" or they have small holes spelling the word specimen. Most of the time they don't have a serial number, or they have a serial number of 00000. This is an exciting sector of the hobby that grown in popularity over the past several years.
