Default Re: First order! Help! 475 mini bows!

whenever we do wholesale orders that size we always do it in steps. It makes it boring, but speeds up the time because of the repetition. We cut and heatseal and then tie and then finish the centers and attach clips.

HTH congrats on the order!

I did an order like this and it took a lot longer than I thought it would. The last week before they were due was so stressful. Next time I will plan better.
Did you receive partial payment or a deposit? I got half the payment up front for a deposit and that made me sleep a lot easier, knowing that if they changed their mind at the last minute, I had something to show for it.
Congrats on the big order!

I would do assembly line style for each week and at the end of a week, "finish" the bows. After about 2 weeks or so, you'll see how much time it takes you to complete a set of bows. Plus you don't want to get down to crunch time and have to 'finish' all 400 bows by doing the last step over and over again. But then again I get bored doing something over and over repeatedly in one sitting. If that doesn't bother you, then you should be fine! Congrats on your first and BIG order!

Is there any other way to do it rather than letting the due date sneak up behind you? I swear I can have something on my worklist for weeks and I just don't get busy on it until right before the due date. I'm SO the person that works better under pressure- give me a month and I'll waste it but give me an hour and I'll only need 30 minutes!

I was wondering how your bows were coming along? It's a big order!!! I'm an assembly line person to. I am another one that watches tv while getting them done.
