MISC PREFRENCES

  1. -Strong factory support is needed to insure ideal results:  We do cannot be held responsible for a client’s factory that has poor standards, including: longer than standard turn-around times, poor communication, and technical incompetence.  We prefer to avoid coordination with factories that are known to have poor quality.  Also it is important for a client to understand the ratio between target quality and target price.


-For brands that work on the Industry schedule, it is important to understand the start and finish of the design season.  This specific timing between February and August will directly effect the product development rounds, and thus our ability to meet the seasonal deadlines.  Three rounds of sampling (4-5 months minimum) are usually necessary to achieve an ideal salesman prototype.
