Manufacturers in China is capable of providing sourcing services for any and all products. We are not limited to any single industry, such as textiles or electronics. If you can dream it up, we can help you locate a quality manufacturer that will work with you to produce a product that meets all of your needs and expectations.
Things We Leave Up to You, the Inventor
At Manufacturers in China, we must limit ourselves to arranging the overseas manufacturing of products for inventors. Listed below are some of the areas which we must leave to you.
1. Major design work. While small changes can be arranged with the manufacturer’s designers, for the most part we rely upon you to present us with a good, tested prototype and/or professionally-done drawings so that there will be no confusion concerning what you want.
2. Marketing of the product. Our job is to arrange your manufacturing and supply of goods from China. Marketing of these products is left to you. If you feel you will need help, there are many good marketing companies and independent salesmen who can assist you.
3. Licensing efforts. This applies to both China and the United States. Because we are so busy with the manufacturing arrangements of inventors, we don’t enter into this area at all. We simply can’t help with this.
4. Funding. Funding of your project must be in place before you begin. We do not handle this part of the project, and we never accept a partnership or percentage in anyone’s company in exchange for our work.
In addition to paying your sourcing agent, some of the costs that will arise are these:
If you patent your invention you may have to hire a patent attorney to help you, and an artist to make suitable drawings.
Packaging will require the artist’s help again, and you will need to obtain a UPC code for your product, so that it can be put on the packaging. This packaging can be done in-house at the factory, but you must have your design ready. To sell your product to the major buyers, packaging has to be attractive and the UPC code in place.
If your product is made of plastic, you will need to buy a mold. Generally they are cheaper to buy in China than in the United States.
Sometimes a product will require a good deal of work to create the sample and the factory will charge a sample charge.
The cost of your first order must be figured in, as well as shipping and Customs charges.
Marketing costs must be budgeted into this project, and it is best to be well funded in this area, so that your invention will be seen in the market place.
