We Design AND Deliver Stunning Branded Gear with a Tailor-Fit Process
Our process is a blend of creative genius and industry experience. You want merchandise and print collateral that represents your brand, and we can help you find exactly the right products. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach because there are no shortcuts to greatness. Just look at how we take time to get to know our clients and brainstorm optimal solutions in order to produce products that align with your vision.
A quick call can give us loads of information to kick the project off in the right direction. There are a lot of details, including the design, knitting, sustainability, performance and packaging (just to name a few). We need to get a solid grasp of who these products are for and what they are meant to accomplish. We talk to marketing managers, marketing coordinators, graphic designers and sales managers about their vision so we can make the magic happen. We want to know where your company has been and where you plan to take it. And, we’ll get a feel for your expectations on budget, timeline and other details before starting the next stage.
We’ve got a little more digging to do before we can dive in. During the ideation and brainstorming phase, we prepare for a project presentation with you. First, we research crucial details about your target audience, industry and competition to make sure you stand out in exactly the right way. Then, we consider the design options, like creating special logo variation for an event. And, we dig deep so you can consider more than just the industry norm. Finally, we choose the exact products, colors and designs we think would best fit your project goals before presenting you with our thoughts.
Once the concept, mockups, art and merchandise are approved, it’s go time. We will refine the details and outsource any resources needed for the process (like wholesalers or printers) through our professional network of contracted partners. You can approve the pre-production samples when we have mockups ready to go. We cover everything needed to finalize a successful project that brings your vision to life. Our creative team will take time to test and fine-tune everything before sending it off for production.
Once we are 100% sure the project is produced to our standards and ready to go, we send it to you. During this process, our project coordinators make sure everything is delivered on time with the right decoration, sizes, styles and designs. No matter what you order, we cover the whole process from start to finish. After we are sure you are thrilled with your project, we’ll evaluate what’s next and how we can help your marketing efforts evolve with your company.
