A comprehensive guide to understanding our offerings and business operations
Our Stock Pricing option is designed to provide our customers with the most economical choices for their orders. The pricing for Stock items is determined by several factors, primarily dependent on the quantities ordered. The larger the quantity you order, the lower the unit price per item. This bulk pricing model allows our customers to maximize their savings while still receiving high-quality products. Keep in mind that for Stock Pricing, the design, branding, fabric, embroidery, and trims are standardized to maintain affordability and uniformity across all orders.
Our Custom Pricing option is tailored to meet the specific needs and preferences of our customers. The cost for Custom items can vary significantly due to the extensive range of customization possibilities available. Several factors influence Custom Pricing:
- Design Complexity: The intricacy of your design plays a crucial role in determining the cost. Highly detailed and intricate designs may require more time and resources to produce, impacting the final price.
- Branding: Custom branding, such as logos, slogans, and unique graphics, can affect the overall cost. Adding branded elements to your items may involve additional setup and production expenses.
- Fabric Selection: The type and quality of fabric you choose for your custom items will affect pricing. Premium or specialty fabrics may come at a higher cost than standard options.
- Embroidery: If you opt for embroidery, the number of stitches and the complexity of the embroidery design can influence the price. More intricate embroidery designs may require more time and skill to create.
- Trims: Custom trims, such as buttons, zippers, and decorative elements, can also impact the cost of your order. Unique or specialty trims may be pricier than standard options.
- Quantities: Similar to Stock Pricing, the quantity of custom items you order will affect the unit price. Ordering larger quantities often results in lower per-item costs.
Our Custom Pricing option allows you to create personalized and unique products tailored to your exact specifications. To receive a detailed quote for your custom order, please reach out to us and we will provide you with a customized pricing estimate based on your preferences.
