Our commitment to fair and equal pricing begins with transparency. We’ll never ask what your budget is or how many stores you’re in. The depth of your pockets is not a driving factor for us to provide services or honor our agreement to support your order.
Our ability to support your order depends on two things:

  • Do we have the right equipment?
  • Can we meet your deadline?

If we can say yes to both, we’ll provide a quote and you can decide if you want to proceed. Our prices are based on the time and technical expertise needed to complete your order.

How We Price Services

Pricing is always an important question, but it’s impossible to give an exact amount or even a fair estimate without the details of your request. Our rates don’t fluctuate based on project type. Product complexity, equipment needs, and labor hours dictate your order cost. We’re constantly working to optimize our processes so we can pass those savings on to you. A general guide to our base rates and standard fees is shown below. These fees are subject to change as needed, but are generally updated each calendar year.

Labor is often the most expensive part of producing an item. Our approach to hiring staff is to keep overhead low by curating a team that is talented, skilled, educated, and passionate. We have no desire to compete with China or other locations with extremely low labor costs. We’re a relatively small staff, but we hold the technical skill, knowledge, and experience that surpasses most design staff and manufacturing facilities.

We aren’t likely to be the cheapest option in manufacturing because we pay a fair wage to employees and contractors. However, we’ve proven to reduce costs for our clients, year over year in preproduction services through accuracy, consistency, and technical expertise.

Our clients hire us for our commitment to quality and attention to detail, without compromising our values or your products. We strive to be the premiere boutique clothing manufacturer in the U.S. for small to mid-size companies and individuals, and we look forward to serving you.
