Wholesale Design Sessions
Our wholesale design sessions are created to help small & growing value brands design in the most cost effective way. It's all about turning your vision into a real-life design.
This kind of session is designed to help start-up and growing brands compete with the huge value brands (think large gym, athletic and street brands). Utilising pre-made wholesale garments is exactly how to do this!
In every design session you work alongside one of our designers, on a one-to-one basis either in person or online via Zoom. We do all the drawing and technical work while advising and helping you through the entire session by sharing our expertise and honest advice.
After every design session you will have the mockups you need for sampling and bulk production. In these sessions we design to your needs across a wide range of 1000+ pre-made items that we attach your graphics to. These include dresses, t-shirts, trousers, cargos, joggers, swimwear, basic underwear, hoodies, tops, basic outerwear, etc.
We'll also create simple graphics if needed and guide you through the huge range of pre-made wholesale garments to the ones that suit your quality and pricing level. We'll show all base garment pricing and give guide graphic application pricing.
