By the way everybody I just got sales to Switzerland & Germany today. I'm now convinced Karmaloop Kazbah is KEY for expanding internationally.


Local (international, swiss, german) trade shows?
Visiting shops and making the personal connection?

When I do expand to Europe, I doubt I'll do trade shows at first, but certainly, I'll be traveling to ________, to check out the physical space and meeting the people I'll be selling to.

I've seen HB brands who just post here get international sales as well..


I'm personally NOT spending the money to skip over the Atlantic to go visit any one shop. Anyways I hand-make everything so I can never go too far from the factory in Cali. But yeah you can post on HB & get international sales but nowhere near what karmaloop will do for you. 6 countries in 12 days has been my personal experience

jayzus what happened to hb talent.....came in here to say @ricosway your shit is so fucking whack lol. no need to pull out numbers because 12837912879837917297million tumblrfags can buy yo shit but don't you ever call your shit inspired or "original"

"Stay Original, Be An Individual - SNDVL" after reading this and taking one look at your designs... what a joke. of course there is a market for this type of shit for people who don't know any better.

whack ass fucking brands stop posting
peace


@12ip show me your brand, if yours is better than mine I'll stop posting, if not then you're irrelevant.


What does this have to do with how shitty your brand is? I don't own a brand bruh but me as well as pretty much everyone here is a consumer, I know my words are harsh but I'm just trying to do a service to the industry by warding off whack brands such as yours from the market.
Hope you can appreciate that bru.

@stillwild

when dealing with direct sales (kinda)...a webstore or drop ship site is def a good way to get international.

when dealing with international boutiques...you can do decent biz through emails and phone calls...but it is def nice to meet up with people in person!

(getting a international distribution company is the way to go though)

Ideally, do you use a single company to distribute/ package/ label/ ship everything at once? We're looking to roll a line out on KL and in local stores in the next few months, but actually getting people the product seems to be the hardest part.


I get labels done at 1 place....have them shipped to me, or to my printer.
I order my blanks from another place....have them ship the tees directly to my printer.
The printer labels and prints the tees......i pick them up. (I wuna personally see them joints before we do anything else)

once i get all of my perfectly printed and labelled tees:
For domestic stores...i pick the order and box them up myself and ship to the store.

For international stores...if you have a Distribution Company that you work with...you ship them a huge order, and they will sort and distribute them to the stores that they represent.

@12ip you're a loser, your "harsh words" will continue to fall on deaf ears. I'm doing fine but feel free to continue to waste your time hating on me. My brand is not for everyone, it cost you nothing to pay me no mind.

I think its a cool enough design, I just can't see a lot of people wearing it (when adhering to current styles).


Dope. I'm always a fan of NBA theme tee's.

We are here to make a clear statement that another brand out there "CALINOIZE" is apparently biting our design off and trying to make a profit off from something we worked so hard for our creation. This person (rapper stage name: onehunned), booth next to us at World of Dance San Francisco* & bought a sweater from us. 2 weeks later we found this being posted on his instagram. We Don't respect people that show no respect to other artists. Note that this is after we warned them, and they still persist with this disgusting act. They show absolutely no respect to other brands out there. Guys, plz stay away from CALINOIZE. Have anyone on here run into these type of problems before? I am sure this is common in the clothing industry, but this makes me mad.. They think slapping on some clipart trees onto someone else's work is their work..ridiculous

With your brands how much of you do you put in it? Like for instant all my designs are influenced by maybe a song I was listening to or even something I was reason or seen... And I'm into film cameras alot more then digital so that's why I shot my lookbook in film... And every lookbook will have some type of theme due to how I'm feeling about the clothes and season.....

And also how is your design process? For me I will design something and then love it look back and hate it and before it goes to print I will change it like 4-5 times before I send the email with the fink design... And I eventually stop liking my old designs and focus on something else..

Thats exactly what I do. I have so many designs I've done that will never get printed.
