Each of our factories in Bali and China has slightly different processes, sample type requirements, lead times, terms, and costing based on the factory overheads, resources, and capacity. Specific terms for any of our factories will be provided to the clients.
The factory will not make a profit at the sampling stage due to the large operating costs it takes to run the sample rooms, but the factory does rely on receiving the bulk orders to cover the sampling costs in the end.
Understanding this process is essential in order to prepare handovers, timelines, and to set realistic expectations. As a starting point for new clients, we have outlined a general overview below. More in-depth information and resources are provided when we are working together.
