    Hi all,

    i come back again .
    i am still considering my business recently.
    Everyone know, the china's product is cheap.
    But why i can not get many orders from overseas? Is it the effect of economic crisis?
    Our cap, price must be very cheaper than the caps made in England, usa or other EUROPEAN coutries;
    the quanlity is good as well.
    I want to know, suppose your compny is going to make some custom caps,
    will you make them from china manufacturer? Or order them directly in your country?
    Could you let me know the reasons you order or not order from china factory?
    Or what cases can make you order from china?
    The below is i can think, if you have more idea pls tell me ,thx.
    Order from china:

    Benifits:
    1- cheap, if your want to make many custom caps, that will reduce much cost;
    Risk:
    1- have a big risk once the supplier could not supply product with enough quantity, good quality , on time, even do not make shipment, in a word, there will have a big risk to order from china.

    Not order from china, order from domestic:

    Benifits:
    1- At least can communicate with local supplier face to face, avoide some trouble;

    Risk:
    2- expensive

    Looking forward to hear from you,thanks everyone!

    When people are ordering custom caps or other promotional goods they will often turn to a local company that specialises in that type of promotional goods. That company will often source the products from China and then resell them to their own customers. My point really is, that you should probably be focusing on those promotional companies, rather than the final customer.

    we're having our sunglasses line produced in China. Mostly because of cost issues. And that's where all the manufacturing is mostly done, other then Italy and a few other countries. We've had samples shipped to us by multiple companies to test the waters. Some were really bad. but some were really good. Just have to find the best people you can. Which I believe we have, after a long search.
