NEED TO FIND A SAMPLE MAKER WHO
IS AN EXPERT IN YOUR PRODUCT CATEGORY,
HAS LOW MINIMUMS, AND IS TRUSTWORTHY?
THIS STEP ALONE CAN TAKE FASHION START-UPS
MONTHS OF VALUABLE DESIGN TIME WITH LITTLE SUCCESS.
ABOUT THIS SERVICE:
Our founder taps into her industry insider resource database to secure the best sample maker options for you in either a 2 or 3 Sample Maker Comparison Report. Please note: we only work with U.S. based manufacturers so all of our clients proudly produce "Made in the U.S.A." labels. This is one of the most important steps in the process because we are securing the factory who will produce your samples and eventually your bulk production, and who:
Is emerging fashion brand friendly and doesn't carry high minimums
Specializes in your product category (i.e. swimwear, athletic wear, men's running shorts, intimates, childrenswear, etc.)
WHAT YOU GET:
We provide you with a side-by-side comparison report of all the important information needed to make an accurate decision, including
Estimated pattern cost per style
Estimated muslin cost per style (if applicable)
Estimated sample cost per style
Estimated production cost per style
Estimated lead time
Fit session cost (if applicable)
Our founder's recommended sample maker from your Sample Maker Comparison Report
Please note: The sample maker you select will also handle your production order.
2 Sample Maker Comparison Report: $395
3 Sample Maker Comparison Report: $450
STAY IN THE KNOW: We know you want production and sample costs at the same time so you can budget ahead of time, but that is not how it works. The sample maker cannot give you an accurate quote without first producing your samples. Once you approve your complete sample line, the sample maker can give you both an accurate sample quote for future sample lines and a production estimate. Since we want to help you budget, we will ask our sample makers to give you an estimated production quote when they are willing to provide it, and then we'll provide it to you as a bonus.
