RESEARCHING A NEW CLOTHING LINE
  Funding Clothing Startups

As a startup you are acutely aware of how difficult it can be to fund a new operation. Even with the best of business plans it is difficult to secure bank financing without pledging personal assets. Assistance can sometimes be found at the state or local level through business incubators or economic development funds.

At Style Source, we are often asked how much it costs to start up an apparel business. This is a difficult question to answer, as the product itself may range from a dollar a unit to upwards of $30 or more. Our experience with dozens of startups provide us with a general guideline of $6,000-$15,000 per style for mid-priced apparel at a minimum order level. Keep in mind that this amount is for product only and that you will need ongoing funds for operational expenses.

For all custom orders Style Source requires a 50% deposit upon order placement. The balance of this payment may be applied with credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Discover), COD, or pre-payment when ready.
