Step by Step
Steps in Developing a Plush
The main steps are these:
1. Prepare your idea in as much detail as possible.
2. Have a drawing made of your idea.
3. Sign a Confidentiality Agreement with us.
4. Get a pro forma budget quotation from us.
5. Order a prototype.
6. Approve the prototype or make prototype changes.
7. Sign a contract with us and place the order.
8. Shipping of the plush toys from the factory
9. Delivery of the goods to you.
Prepare your ideas for your
You will want to have given a considerable amount of thought
as to what kind of plush toy you want to create. The more clearly you have thought out your idea, the easier it will be for
us to develop it with you in a timely manner and the better chance it will turn out as, or better, than you expect. Here are
some of the things to consider:
Make a Drawing
We cannot emphasize how important this phase of the development
process is. The better the drawing and initial concept, the better the final product will be. If you need help making a drawing,
we will be pleased to assist you.
Sign a Confidentiality Agreement
Before we proceed past this stage, we would sign a Confidentiality
Agreement with you. The purpose of this agreement is to protect you, your idea and plush toy image.
Get a Pro Forma Quotation
Once you have defined your idea and made a drawing, we
can help you choose from the myriad of fabrics available for the production of the product. Afterward we will give you
an estimate of the minimum order quantity, the total cost, the time to produce the order and the time for delivery.
Order a Prototype
Upon acceptance of our pro forma quotation and after all
the design criteria have been established, we will have a prototype made and sent to you. The prototype will be
the model for the production run.
Approve the Prototype
You may make modifications and changes in the prototype
as you desire. This may mean a substitute of materials or actual structural design changes themselves. After the changes are
decided upon, we will have another revised prototype made. Making and changing prototypes can be a time consuming process,
which is why we will work patiently, but diligently, with you to get the first prototype as correct as possible. However,
as your original idea itself grows and changes, once you have the prototype in your hand, you will want to make prototype
changes. Plush toy prototypes normally improve greatly through changes from generation to generation.
Place the Order
Based upon the final prototype design, the quantities
and the delivery time required, we will sign a contract with you and receive your payment. We will keep you up-to-date as
your order is being manufactured.
We will notify you when the order ships out from
the factory and again as it clear customs at the destination port.
Upon arrival in the port of delivery, we will
advise you and coordinate delivery to you. Although this is the end of this order, we stand ready for any sudden reorders
or to provide any post sales service help.
