Make it price your whereas
A brand new potential buyer brings in a pleasant (costly) leather-based tote bag and needs to get their firm emblem embroidered on it. Really, they wish to add their emblem to many of those baggage. How would you deal with it, given the next:
- You may have by no means labored on leather-based.
- It’s a customer-provided product.
- It’s an costly product.
- It may be a difficult product to work with in the perfect of circumstances.
- It’s not a supple leather-based, however a extra stiff and thick one, in order that the bag maintains it is form.
- They need the emblem on the facet with the pocket, made from that very same dense, stiff leather-based. The shopper acknowledges and accepts that the pocket will should be sewn shut to have the emblem of their most well-liked location.
- You may have by no means digitized a design to go on leather-based earlier than.
It is a actual life scenario, delivered to NNEP as we speak by member Amy Ok. of Gold Medal Concepts. We chatted concerning the following:
- Is the client is keen to threat one bag to the “trigger” without charge to you, to be able to experiment with the digitizing and placement? Engaged on a swatch of leather-based to check the design is probably not a ok simulation of the product, primarily based on its thicker and stiffer traits.
- Is the client keen to pay a charge – along with the digitizing charge – possibly within the $50-$75 vary, so that you can take a look at the design to give you a top quality answer?
- Is the client keen to pay a premium for the embroidery on all the baggage, if you’ll be able to develop an answer?
- Digitize the design particularly for leather-based, which implies a diminished sew depend, probably a thicker thread, and wedge level needles, that are particularly designed for leather-based.
If the client agrees with all of these items, then it might result in an excellent relationship with a brand new shopper. If, however, the client is just not keen to cowl the R&D time or threat a bag, then you could wish to cross on this chance, because the dangers might outweigh the potential.
