Why engaging freelancers and why not having a maker doing all the work?
A maker’s role is to make your product not product consulting, pattern drafting or material sourcing . They will do this because they want your business but they don’t have the time you need and deserve and you will have to commit to a maker too early in the process. When you engage a freelancer you look for particular skills, you hire the best talent for the job. When the blueprint is ready you can request a quote from multiple vendors which ensures a faster and more accurate quote. This way you the best of both worlds.
How easy is it to create something from scratch?
Well that’s the million dollar question! The truth is that every product begins with a blueprint. Follow our easy to use industry standard templates and make a blueprint of your idea. Makers have to understand what’s needed to produce your product before they can share a quote. Getting this right is very important.
