MOQs FOR BULK?
At 500 pcs (250 sets) and up you get standard prices for bulk production. You can order less, but will pay a bit extra. If you order large quantities, we give you discounts.
MOQ per style/color/print is 20pcs. MOQ per size is 5pcs.
You can start small and grow with us.
MOQ FOR RE-ORDERS (BULK)
200pcs - if you re-order same styles within 6 months with no surcharge. If using stock fabrics and stock hardware (no print) we can re-make 200pcs in just 2 weeks.
HOW DOES IT WORK WITH ORDERING FULL ROLLS OF CARVICO OR JL? WHAT IF NOT ALL FABRIC IS USED IN MY ORDER?
All fabrics that are purchased in rolls by you (not our stock) are pre-paid fully by you and the value will be used as a deposit for your bulk order using the fabric. If you use all the fabric then all the value is credited to your order - everything is like usual. If you however choose to save some fabric or not use it all, let's say half a roll (35 meters), that means you have fabric that is left in our warehouse that we keep for future orders. When you later use that fabric we will credit the value for that next order.
Example: You've placed a total order of $10,000 and in this bulk production we are using your saved fabric rolls at value of $3000 - then that amount will be deducted from order so remaining is $7000.
