The idea of creating your own handbag collection can be scary and exciting all at the same time. There are so many things to consider such as where do I find a manufacturer? How much will it cost? What kind of materials should the bags be made out of? And how on earth am I supposed to come up with an original name for my handbag line?! These questions might seem daunting, but you don't have to go through this alone! The Clutch Made Team is here to assist you on turning your dreams into reality. We summed up how you can get started today!
Think about your brand
It's important for people to become more informed about how to not only create a product, but how to create a brand they are passionate about. Think about building your brand and your product - it is important to define what are your interests and passions that you want to incorporate into your brand.
If you want to get a head start, we can help you overcome these obstacles by providing you with the right tools and information. The Clutch Made Team offers an online course that introduces you to the necessary tools to organize your ideas and get them "down on paper". Our course will assist you in moving closer to taking your passion from idea to reality.
Design your products and define your marketing strategies
After you have your branding defined, think about your marketing strategies. What is the demographic of the people who would buy your products? Will you create a physical store or just sell online? How will you market your handbag line? It is important to define and establish your brand while creating your product - that is what building a business is about.
If you are not sure where to begin, you can schedule an appointment with one of our product developers so we can work with you to turn your ideas into a product driven business. During our consultations we discuss who, what, when and how you are going to take your concepts to market.
Manufacture your products
If you have everything established and you can see your product coming to life, it's time for you to manufacture your products. The first step would be developing a tech pack and a sample of your product. At Clutch Made Factory, we develop professional tech packs. A tech pack is created by one of our designers and includes an illustrated drawing with measurements and instructions so it can be possible for us to turn your design into reality.
You can also schedule a Tech Pack consult with us. We will review design details, specs, concepts and work with you to find the best solutions to bring your product to life, all while taking into account USA’s manufacturing capabilities and your budget.
