Prototype & Design
Support Enterprises, Inc. has a full-time prototype and design team. Our three person design team has over 35 years of experience. We can take your idea or concept and develop it into a finished product. We will provide patterns, material costs, and a finished bill of materials as well as a report with suggestions we have to increase the efficiency of production and the quality of the product. We can also use your patterns if you so desire. SEI can also be your full line sewing manufacturer.
We offer the following plan for developing your products:
- We will prototype your design or idea into a finished product.
- We’ll provide as requested, the following:
- Patterns, bill of materials, fabric options, pricing structures
Our charge for the above services is $50 per hour plus any supply costs at a mark-up of 20% and all costs related to shipping charges. Based on the following criteria these fees will be refunded if SEI is provided with billable production of the product within one calendar year of the prototype work being completed:
Prototype Charge re-bate Dollar Value of Production Work
10% $2,000 – $3,000
30% $5,001 -$7,500
40% $7,501 – $15,000
50% $15,001 – $30,000
100% $75,001 or more
The above prototype re-bate plan is for total billable hours and supplies of under $2000. Any prototype work costing more than that amount will be subject to separate negotiations and are not covered by the above plan.
