Eyewear retailers have been sending frames to try on for years, but Quattrocento's paper concept makes the whole process cheaper and faster

The Italian eyewear startup Quattrocento is making online shopping for a new pair of glasses a lot more efficient. With their new “paper try-on” service costumers can receive different paper cut-outs of models they can try on at home before making their purchase.

Eyewear retailers have been sending frames to try on for years, but this paper concept makes the whole process cheaper for the company, who saves lots on inventory and extra stock, as well as faster.

The company offers clients up to 5 paper replicas of their chosen frames, delivery is free since it only costs the company a stamp. The concept does have its drawbacks, a paper model is not the same as the real thing—and it’s more to see how the frame fits rather than how it looks.
