When it comes to accessory design, there are a lot of factors to consider. One of the most important is where you choose to manufacture your products. Many companies opt to manufacture their accessories overseas, but there are several good reasons why you should do it in the USA - from the cost-value of your production to sustainability. In this blog post, we will discuss five of the top reasons why you should make your accessory products in America!
When you're developing a product, it's natural to expect it to be of the best quality possible in order to sell. This is one of the main points to remember when you come to manufacture your accessories in the USA: the quality of your product. By choosing to work with an American factory like Clutch Made, you can have control over the quality of your products and the materials used - which would be extremely difficult and with an extremely time-consuming process if your production was done overseas. Also, keep in mind that Made in USA products are recognized globally - quality is something we cherish and value.
Communication is essential in any aspect - whether professional or personal. Obviously, working with the manufacturer of your products is no exception: it is essential to have good communication with your manufacturer so that you can ensure that your product is manufactured exactly as you envisioned it. By working with a local factory, you can be sure that the communication process will be greatly simplified. In addition to avoiding problems such as language barriers (which of course can occur due to language differences), being in the same time zone as your manufacturer sure is beneficial and prevents you from having to wait for longer periods of time to get a response from your factory.
One of the main points in a production is the shipping of your products, after all, it not only dictates how the route between the factory and your warehouse will be carried out, but also dictates part of the total value of your product and its delivery time. This is one of the main benefits of working with an American factory: like Clutch Made, local factories have an extremely low cost for shipping, in addition to having a significantly shorter delivery time (after all, your products won't have to cross an entire ocean to reach you) and you also will generate a smaller carbon footprint, which leads us to the next topic...
In addition to reducing the carbon footprint derived from shipping, manufacturing in the USA also contributes significantly to the creation of more sustainable products. By manufacturing in the United States, you have greater control over the materials that will be used in your products, and you can be confident that the factory you are working with is disposing of materials properly. At the Clutch Made Factory, sustainability is one of the most important topics. We always encourage our customers to create products that have the least possible impact on the environment, and we make sure our material leftovers are sent for recycling, where they gain new purposes, or proper categorical disposal. We strive to learn more, apply often and seek better alternatives every day.
Help with local economy
Job stability is an important factor in any community. When you choose to work with local manufacturers, you are not only helping to create stability within your community, but you are also contributing to the local economy. Working with local manufacturers keeps money circulating within the community, and it helps to create a market for local products. As a result, everyone benefits when you choose to work with local manufacturers. Not only do you get high-quality products, but you also help to build a strong and prosperous community.
