Are you lacking in confidence and feel like the whole process is overwhelming & confusing?
Maybe you’ve reached out to manufacture partners but have only had ‘luke warm’ replies, or their responses have just triggered more questions.
Do you want to learn how the process should work, what this could cost you, and take back control of your development journey?
With Demi as your expert guide, understand the full process of designing & developing a product for commercial manufacture.
This programme has been created specifically for new brands wanting to build and launch physical items that come under the category of clothing, accessories or textile products: if it can be sewn together, this course is for you!
We kick off Week 1 by jumping into Adobe Illustrator. We will teach you how to turn your ideas into professional Design CADs. Then we move onto Design Packs so you can build and clarify your details accurately over the next 6 weeks.
Deciding the types of fabrics & trims you want to use on your designs before approaching suppliers helps speed the process along! We will discuss sustainable options available, as well as how to successfully source & develop your own branded items. Supplier lists for materials & trims will also be provided so you can start requesting samples!
In Week 2 we will start to build our Tech Packs. The aim is to have them finished & ready to send out to suppliers by the end of the course. We go into detail on how to use a Tech Pack, plus how to choose the best sizing for your product.
The week you’ve all been waiting for! We go through crucial things to consider before approaching suppliers, as well as information on ethical & social issues. We go into detail on what questions to ask, what you need to know beforehand, and what to expect from suppliers when you do get in touch. Manufacture lists will be provided this week along with recommendation on partners that could be best for you and your brand!
Week 3 puts the focus on your brand, ensuring you understand your business structure, confirming details such as name, social media handles & domain. This is also the week we get thrown head-first into Excel in a lesson on budgeting.
Based on the last 5 weeks, once all homework is complete, you should be in an amazing position to request your first samples from suppliers. But what do you do after that? We will break down the next steps including reviewing samples, testing, quality control and shipping. We also finish off our Tech Packs with the final instalment.
From 2022, The Do It Right programme will be available all year round - meaning it's ready when you are instead of having to wait for a certain intake.
The programme runs for 6 consecutive weeks.
All videos and workbooks will be released upfront, with 1-2-1 coaching calls happening weekly.
We ask that to make the most of this programme and really get your development journey off to the best start, you commit and make time for these calls and the homework each week.
The Do It Right programme is £1200 (approx AUD 2145) and requires a deposit of £400 (approx AUD 715) . You can choose to pay the full amount upfront, or follow our payment plan as below:
- Pay a deposit of £400 (approx AUD 715)
- Followed by 2 instalments of £400 (approx AUD 715) over 2 months.
Please note all payments including deposits are non-refundable.
If you’d like to discuss payment plan options in more detail please get in touch with the Get Stuff Made team.
Spaces are limited on this programme to ensure everyone who joins receives the time and support they deserve.
If you are serious about building your own brand and all the product based development that comes with it, please apply using the form here. You will be able to schedule a call with Demi to go over all details and ask any follow up questions you may have before committing.
We also want to ensure you are as excited as we are about the upcoming journey of creating your products - it really is an exciting process, made even better with less stress and more support! We appreciate this is an investment in you and your business, so it’s really important to us that you fully benefit from the programme and understand exactly what you’ll receive.
I can’t wait to get started - it’s an amazing & rewarding journey, one we would be honoured to guide you along!
