Making in the USA vs Making In China: Why you should make Your Accessories in America

When starting your production, many people ask themselves where to manufacture their products. In this blog post, we will guide you through the differences between starting your production in the USA vs making your products in China.

If you've ever seen a counterfeit designer handbag, you are aware that they are just not of the same quality as the "genuine thing." Products with "Made in China" labels may be seen as inferior to those with "Made in the US" labels. You should take this into account even though it might not always be the case. Many consumers prefer domestically produced goods and are willing to pay more for them. This may not be important if you manufacture cheaper products that are not expected to last, but it is very important if you want to manufacture high-quality goods.

When making in the USA, you have easy access to the factories and are able to monitor your production. When working with the Clutch Made Factory, you will be able to review your services from start to finish – all our processes are transparent, and we will work with you to create the product that will reach your expectations.

If you are not manufacturing in mass quantities, Chinese factories may unexpectedly stop working with you in favor of clients who are more lucrative. If you are a smaller business and want a small batch, many Chinese factories will need high-volume minimum orders from the start, which, although great for big corporations, may not work for you.

Shipping is also something you should keep in mind when making internationally. Most international factories are in China, and it can take from weeks to months to ship your products, depending on the number of products. When you make in the USA, the cost and the time of shipping is significantly shorter.

If you are looking for a higher quality service, making in the USA is definitely the way to go. Here at Clutch Made Factory, we will communicate with you from start to finish and produce your accessories according to your expectations – all here in the heart of New York City.
