Sewing contractors play a specific role in the production of products and providing of certain services. They offer various industries a wide array of sewing-associated services. These extend beyond the obvious production of the product. Such contractors, especially custom sewing contractors, do everything from the initial design to the final packaging. Custom contractors stand out further for another reason. What they do is customized not mass-produced.
Custom sewing work occurs in different sizes of shops. They may be large industrial complexes or small intimate structures. What they have in common is the ability to design and craft many original items for various industries. They are the creative forces behind later mass production and thousands of items that copy their designs. Companies that contract with such customized sewing services include:
* Medical professionals and associations
* Military agencies
* Automotive industry
* Construction companies
* Transportation industry
A custom sewing contractor will work with all these groups and individuals to arrive at the product they want and/or need. The starting point will be a design. This will lead to a prototype and, eventually, the manufacturing of a product.
Types of Custom Sewing Contractors
Sewing contractors do not all afford the same services or products to their clients. The type of work they do will indicate what type of custom contractor they are. Essentially, they fall into two types. These are general and specialized.
General Custom Contractors in Sewing
Of all the sewing contractors, these are the most versatile. They sew any and everything. While they may restrict their clients to a set few or only produce a few products, they still prepare everything for that one specific item or items. They also perform the same services of designing, production of prototypes and final design or product.
Specialized Custom Contractors in Sewing
These are custom shops. They specialize in designing, engineering and/or producing a specific type of item. Alternatively, the custom shop could focus only on providing specific detailed work. Common types of custom sewing handled by such shops are the following:
* Buttons, snaps and other fasteners
* Mixed media
These are decorative work that is often customized to meet the specific requirements of a company, industry or agency. They are clearly identifiable and require specific skills to ensure the work is done appropriately and with fine attention paid to details.
Custom Sewing Contractors
Custom sewing services work with their clients to provide them with what they are looking for. They begin with the design. They procure the material or fabric to create the item – whether it is a logo or an equipment bag. Once approved, they may handle its production. If they are full service, they will even pack and ship it. More often than not, however, custom sewing contractors go with their strengths – the ability to design, put together and produce the prototype a client wants.
