How to launch your own brand in a few easy steps

Launching your own sportswear brand can be pretty daunting, especially if your background isn’t within this sector.

Established in 1997, we have worked with over 120 sportswear brands, many of which have been start up brands with clients just like you. Having helped launch these start ups and launching our own start up in 2012, we fully understand the processes involved and pitfalls to avoid.

Follow these simple steps below and launch your brand with ease.

Step 1 - Start with a consultation. Either reach out to us via our "Contact" form or give us a call to discuss your brand. We will discuss the product, your niche and scope of the project as a whole.

Step 2 - We will provide you with a detailed quote further to the consultation based on your needs. If this is approved we move to step 3.

Step 3 - The design stage starts. We will finesse your designs or ideas and if you Don't have a logo yet, can develop this too. After the designs have been signed off by you, we will create the tech packs and BOM so that the factory can cut patterns and produce samples.

Step 4 - Sample approval. Several samples will be produced to approve fit, function, performance and grade. We can also produce photo samples before production starts.

Step 5 - Crowdfunding. You may already have a budget to manage the bulk production costs but if this is going to be a struggle, then we can manage a crowdfunding campaign for you. The campaign will look to obtain pre orders before you place the bulk order so that you have the money in the bank before you commit to the factory.

Step 6 - Production begins. Funds are in place, samples approved and you are ready to launch. We manage the production process and can assist with logistics and shipping too.
