Maker of custom-branded Virtual Reality (VR) headsets, tablet/phone cases, book binding and photobook solutions

Powis is a maker. We make book binding and photobook solutions for many of the Fortune 500, the White House, and governments across the world. Powis was the OEM manufacturer for all of Shutterfly and Kodak’s photobooks back in the day. Now we’re getting into the custom products space with a focus on Phone and Tablet cases. We currently work with Zazzle, Sharper Image, Keka Case, and more. Our partners love us for our unmatched quality, customization options, and fast turnaround (1-3 days).

Materials

This stage involves gathering all the necessary materials needed to make your product. Some factories provide materials and assembly; sometimes you will need to buy materials separately.

Sample-Making

A sample is a prototype of your idea. Sample-makers usually make the product by hand (hand-cutting, hand-assembling, etc.) before you get your tooling finalized. You want your sample to be perfect if you plan to do mass production of your product.

(Usually sample-makers charge more per product, but this depends on the factory’s policy.)

Production

"Production run" means making a lot of one product at once. The factories listed under "production" can produce small and/or large quantities. The minimum order for a production run can vary from factory to factory (some have no minimum, some require a dozen, and some require up to 1,000 to be made at once)
