Do you frequently order the same promotional products 3-4 times per year? If your answer is yes, we can show you how to save a ton of money! You ask How?? By planning ahead and ordering overseas.
Not only will you save time and money but also have the flexibility to design a more custom item. For example, if a hat is ordered domestically, direct embroidery on the visor is not available, they have to be embroidered ahead of time before the visors are sewn up. Lets take a look at how you would save time and money on ordering hats overseas.
You might be under the assumption that you have to place large quantity orders to be able to purchase overseas, not true anymore, the minimum quantities have really come down in the last few years.
For example, lets take a look at the savings one of our clients received when planning ahead and ordering overseas. In the years past they were purchasing at least 500 hats four times per year. They had an embroidered logo in the front and one in the back. These were high quality wool blend baseball hats. Domestic pricing for these hats were $7.75 per hat. They Ordered 500 hats, four times per year totaling 2,000 hats. Total cost per year = $13,500.
Now we place the order overseas:
Same scenario, but instead of ordering 500 hats four times per year, we place one order for all 2000 hats. The hats will take approximately 60-90 days. We will receive all 2,000 into the warehouse and now the client has as needed for the entire year. They literally would be able to access inventory in one day!
Actual cost for the overseas hats are now $4.75. The customer has also received a more custom hat with more bells and whistles such as their logo in the hat label and an additional logo on the side of the hat. Total savings per hat is $2.00.
This results in a total savings of $6,000.00!
