Samples and production

As I had talked about earlier, I had found a contract manufacturer I was working with to create my product. Since I have posted, I have had two samples created. The first one, done from drawings I had created. After receiving the initial sample I made changes and had a second sample created.

Needless to say I was blown away with the quality. Of course with that quality comes a higher price per unit, plus import duties and shipping. I have put in my first order of 1000 units, which will take 30 days production time and 30 days on the water.

Realize that you, as the small guy, will get less "love" from the contract manufacturer then their established clients. You need to push and push to get them to get back to you. Its a test in the way, as until you order something, you are a cost center.

Keep persevearing and you will get your product made. As I get closer to launch, I will let you know how it goes.
