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.
