Was your business legit when you messaged suppliers like did you have an LLC or some type of legal recognition as a business or is it ok to just be starting off and not have an official business yet for you to order wholesale blanks because I’m trying to go this route for my first drop and don’t want to be breaking any laws or lying to the supplier. Love the brand bro keep up the unique designs

Hey mate just wondering, do the manufacturer also do inside labeling and tags?
Vaalotu Iakopo (1 month ago)
Yes, you can ask them to customize it for you. But if you can do it for yourself then go for it. It save you money and its not hard to do.

man thank you for this. im starting a surf apparel company myself. may i ask ... what goes into explaining size and placement of images? like literally x cm from center neck line type thing? also, i plan to wholesale to retail surf shops. if you are also wholesaling, are overseas timelines reliable enough that you place orders based on retail purchases or are you keeping a stock of inventory on hand and just swallowing the discount to move inventory that was not sold wholesale? thanks again!

Im afraid I dont have experience yet in selling to retailers! When it comes to talking with your manufacturers though, yes, communication is key. You should add as much information as possible (arrows, captions, precise but simple explanations) to make sure they understand what you want the outcome of your product to look and feel like. I would also say, that for the most part the handful of manufacturers I have come across have been really good with accurate shipping predictions and tracking numbers.

How did you handle the taxing on your products? Did you like go to some local facility in which you just sign up what your business is about or do you have to fill out forms or how did it work?
Vaalotu Iakopo (1 month ago)
You don't need to worry about tax uce, if you're a startup. Those stuff like taxes you can hire an accountant chamber to deal with it. But that's when business is up and running by itself. But if you want it to run it by yourself, then check out the IRD they're running seminar to show you how to do your taxes. Hope that helps bro. Good luck

I know you are from a different country then me but is it also true your shipment has to go through customs and pay duties and taxes when importing to your country? I've been trying to research it but almost everyone is talking about huge quantities and shipments of over 50k usd, so i can't get a clear answer about small quantities.

I'm into that you're making the videos funny as well. I'm keen to find out how you worked out your hoodies with a manufacturer for such a decent price. Any tips on that on a decent supplier?
