What to consider before ordering

There are a number of considerations when deciding what will work best for your desired product:

Is your project a limited run, for a very select target market? Is it based on a "limited time only" campaign? Or is this for national or international distribution?

How long does the product need to last in the marketplace? Will it be subjected to UV rays and extreme weather? Does it need to be "Marine-Grade," or is it simply for indoor use?

Is your business product simply for legal compliance with current regulations, such as a warning label? Or is this product symbolic of your company and your company's quality?

Factors that need to be considered in the light of cost are measurable factors, such as product longevity, color, and the overall purpose of the product. Factors that are not so easily measured typically have to do with "brand" and branding goals. The perceptions of the target market concerning your product and your company are irrevocably important.

How complex is the design?"
