Designing and kitting a row can be intimidating, especially with the boatload of other responsibilities that rest on your shoulders as a shop owner. Rather than add to the stress, consider outsourcing your design and kitting! We work with shops in a variety of ways, from converting their designs into PDF printable patterns, to full retail kitting with kits that show up at your shop door, ready to sell! Shop owners that we've worked with have been shocked at how cost-effective our design and laser-cutting services have been.
One shop owner in Idaho expressed astonishment at the fabric savings per kit. She said that her customers were chomping at the bit for laser-cut kits, excited at the prospect of time savings and having fabrics that are pre-cut and pre-fused. With the increased value added, shops are selling fabric not just for $12 per yard, but for $36 to $50 per yard without customers batting an eye. That's 3X the sales. And our cutting services only cost a fraction of that.
We're not saying "Buy our products blindly" here. Just the opposite. You know your demographic better than anyone--you know what your customers will buy, and when they'll buy it. Create a custom kit with the help of our laser-cutting expertise to develop a specific product that will resonate with your customers, whether that's for this upcoming Row by Row or just if you'd like to start making higher margins and carrying a product that no other shop in your area does.

Send fabric our way, and we'll take care of the rest! Kits are laser-cut and packaged individually with an instruction insert for your customers. Bundle with pattern printing for a ready-to-sell option!
