If you are ordering a custom product, it’s important to do a small test run of your product! This allows you to:
You will most likely have to pay for these samples – and you should!
It helps create a trusting relationship between you and your supplier by showing you value their work and effort. They’ll also be more likely to help you out in the future.
This also stops them from trying to recoup their sample creation costs by either cutting corners and using cheaper materials (giving you an inferior product) or by raising prices on future orders.
