Minimum order quantity will vary by the type of product, its complexity, how often you will produce a new lot, and what kind of sewing machinery is involved. A good rule of thumb to remember is: The higher your volume, the better your price! Expect to cut at least 50 pieces per style per color to get better pricing. Below this, you will be paying what amounts to sample pricing.
Usually, no. We do not stock fabrics and trims, so our manufacturing customers are required to identify and purchase their own raw materials. The one exception is when we have a customer with a product that is produced year-round, in high volume, without changes to the fabric used. In other words we may be able to offer you a cost efficient package in exchange for consistent, high volume, repetitive production of a specific product. If you offer new styles every season, your product is not a candidate for package pricing.
We can sew jokers, four-arounds, care labels, logo labels--pretty much anything. We can also apply heat transfer labels. If you want us to add labels to a finished garment, the price depends on where the label is located and whether we have to open any seams to insert it.
If we are producing the garment for you, the cost of attaching the label will be included in the production quote.
Yes, we can put your garments on hangers or fold them in bags or boxes. If your customer has a vendor manual that describes how goods should be labeled, folded, hung, packaged or boxed please make sure you give us the appropriate sections.
We have garment bags, poly bags, & etc. that may work for your project. If you use our stock packaging, we will include the cost in our production quote. If you need hangers, custom sized bags or boxes, or you want your logo printed on them, you will need to supply them. Ask for our input if you are designing packaging--we can suggest ways to make the packaging process more efficient and useful for your warehouse and customers.
Yes, we recommend it. We will give you a quote for inspections based on the sample size you want inspected and how you want us to handle rejects. If you had products manufactured elsewhere, we can inspect and then repair, alter, press or steam many failing garments to return them to first-quality condition.
