Sail to New Horizons

Looking to get your products manufactured in China? Congratulations! I know how far you’ve come to arrive at this next big step, and I’m here to help you navigate the journey ahead.

Since 2004, I’ve taken the helm of all logistics involved in the overseas production of day planners and desk products—saving my clients time, money, and stress along the way.

My Overseas Production and Manufacturing coaching service is designed to guide you through the entire production process—from price quote to final delivery. This personalized one-on-one service caters to small business owners just like you, giving you more control over the growth of your business. By teaching you the process with my hands-on approach, I’m giving you the tools and resources you need to handle reprints on your own with confidence—or to start reaching out to new vendors in different product categories. Once you learn the ropes, your options are endless!

My Step-by-Step Process

Step 1: Our First Call — We’ll discuss the details of your project together (dimensions, material options, budget, timeline, etc.).

Step 2: The Legwork — I’ll start gathering quotes from various vendors. Once I find the best manufacturing partner, I’ll kick off the project by looping everyone into the conversations (you, me, and the manufacturer). Together we’ll order samples and finalize pricing and specs.

Step 3: The Schedule — I’ll create a production schedule for this specific project, plus create a master schedule for you to follow when placing reorders in the future.

Step 4: Production — Once we’ve perfected the sample(s), we’ll officially place the order and you’ll submit payment directly to the factory. Together we’ll review proofs and schedule shipping.

Step 5: Shipping and Delivery — I’ll introduce you to my preferred freight forwarder who will ensure your goods make it safely to you. Once you receive your shipment, I’ll coach you through the inspection process and help direct communications with the factory should you find any issues with your products.

Copper-Bottomed Guarantee: Your trust is of the utmost importance. That’s why we’ll sign a contract at the beginning of our work together which includes NDA verbiage that protects you and your proprietary information so we can discuss your ideas and share freely. In addition, you will retain exclusive ownership of any copyrightable works, ideas, and products developed during this service.
