  • The importance of a tech pack
  • How to hire a designer

Learn the tips, tricks and insider secrets to finding a trusted factory and managing your supply chain from a seasoned supply chain expert.

You will learn:

  • How to source a trustworthy factory
  • How to manage production
  • How shipping, customs, and tariffs work

“We saved a ton of time and energy and now have a path forward with our product, instead of spinning our wheels, debating strategy and wasting a lot of precious time and money. Lance has a ton of knowledge and experience and answered every one of our questions and even anticipated issues we hadn’t yet thought of. The practical advice he gave was excellent. To fellow entrepreneurs and product designers: A great idea without proper execution is worthless. A great physical product idea without proper execution is not just worthless, it can seriously cost you in lost time and funds. Highly recommend starting right and avoiding production problems and delays with advice from experienced pros who can set you on a good path and help you along the way. Thank you Lance and Blacksmith International!”
