Factory floor in Quanzhou, China.
One of many factories I work with who can provide prototypes and full scale production. I can also source factories in the United States if you prefer to have your products made in the USA.
Side note: Notice how clean and modern the factory is. The workers are genuinely happy and honored to have these high-paying respectable jobs in their country.

Rush Prototyping Services (at a Sample Maker's workshop in Seattle, WA - USA).

Travel to the PNW was arranged with only one week of notice. End result: two perfect prototypes with extra time to spare on the client's deadline.
