Let's Get Together
Most projects start with a visit to our sunny studio outside of Philadelphia to look at product and get inspiration. We’ll sit and talk about your business, your customers and where you see opportunity for growth. You can be as involved as you would like during the development stage. Many customers go through our library themselves and pick out parts they like!
The design studio is packed with inspiration boards, sample cards, vintage parts bins and so much more! It’s what people find most fascinating when they come to visit!
We’ll take all of your notes, combine them with trend reports, and meet with our team of designers. You get to sit back and relax while we develop a first round of samples based on your individual needs.
Design stage takes about 2-4 weeks depending on where you plan to manufacture.
Finally! You get to see the first round of designs. We’ll be eagerly waiting to hear your feedback…at which point we’ll talk about packaging, display, your vendor requirements and other important details.
This stage takes a different amount of time for each customer, but we like to allow at least 4 weeks.
We get to work creating your designs and you prepare for the selling season! We can offer a number of tools to help you sell, including training on the collection, special events and trunk shows. Promoting your line should be a part of our discussions early on.
Production time takes about 8-12 weeks on all new development.
