STEP 1:
ESTABLISH OBJECTIVES

Products

What types of product(s) do you need made?

Requirements

What product features and functions are required?

Budget

Do you have a total project budget or unit price targets?

Deadline

How much time do we have to prepare, produce and deliver your products?

STEP 2:
SOURCING AGREEMENT

The sourcing agreement lists all project objectives, fee and payment details, and performance guarantees.

Example Sample Agreement - iPad Graphic2

STEP 3:
PREPARATION

Product mockups

Prior to sample production, we create mockups to preview product design and confirm details meet client’s requirements.

Factory selection

Once project requirements are established and product designs are confirmed, we identify and propose suitable manufacturing partners.

Preliminary quotation

Before proceeding sample production, we ensure factory’s preliminary quotation is in line with our established price targets.

STEP 4:
SAMPLING

Prototype Sample

Prototype sampling is a crucial and required step of the production process, in which we attempt our first execution of client design.

Revision Sample

Revision samples are required when changes must be applied to the prototype sample.

Confirmation Sample

This is the client approved final revision sample, representing the benchmark from which main production merchandise will be compared.

Top Sample

Prior to shipping the bulk order, a top sample is taken from the top of the batch of completed merchandise and delivered to client for final approval.

STEP 5:
PRODUCTION

Before initiating mass production, we lock in a final production completion date with the factory.

Next, we oversee production to ensure that all merchandise is manufactured in compliance with project requirements.

As production nears completion, we collect top samples to assess final quality before coordinating delivery.

STEP 6:
DELIVERY

Factory pickup

We confirm all manufactured goods are packaged properly before loading onto our collection vehicles. The packaged goods are then transported to the relevant port and prepared for export.

Customs clearance

Before exporting client’s goods, we first confirm destination country’s import regulations and duty schedules to ensure the goods pass through customs in a timely manner.

Local delivery

Once the goods are cleared by customs, we then coordinate final delivery of goods to client’s warehouse.

Balance payment

After final product is delivered and passes final inspection, client remits balance payment to PDI.
