Retainer Services

*We are currently taking on a limited number of new clients per year because our existing clients renew and stay on board with us. This is the result of the care and quality that goes into every detail, person, and business. We only work on projects that are the right fit for both us and the client. Have a look at what people say in the reviews below.

What is a retainer program?

A retainer is perfect for businesses who need design and consulting services monthly, but don’t want the overhead of hiring a full-time employee. The purpose of a retainer program is to secure a professional to help with all your design and development needs and build a relationship with someone who knows your brand well. It is paid for upfront, each month before work begins. A block of time will be allocated for you within the schedule for the number of hours you purchase. This gives us the ability to plan the workload ahead of time and allows you to meet any deadlines you have.

Why is a retainer program right for your company?

  • Savings – There's no need to pay benefits like health insurance or 401K to an independent contractor. And the more hours you commit to, the lower the rates you receive.

  • Peace of mind – By paying in advance, a block of time is already saved for you each month. We will work together to set goals and get your project complete on time.

  • Professional support – You won't have to think about the technical design of your own styles or learning Illustrator or industry lingo.  Your work is in highly experienced hands.

What type of work falls into the retainer program?

Flexible services include:

  • Complete end-to-end design, development, and production support

  • Design work from hand sketches to CAD drawings and flats

  • 3D virtual sampling before any physical samples are made

  • Component, fabric, and factory sourcing

  • Construction and quality detail reviews for existing garments

  • Lab dip approvals and print artwork development

  • Development tech pack creation through production tech packs

  • Label development and hang tag set up

  • Writing fit comments and coordinating wear testing

  • General apparel industry consulting

What types of products are your specialty?

Our strengths include women's soft goods such as intimate apparel / lingerie, lounge and sleepwear, sportswear, medical apparel, and accessories such as tote bags and headbands. We do not work with jeans and animal leather goods.
