I'm in the beginning stages of developing a consumer product that has to do with lunch boxes and I'd like to have a prototype made in China (I've been told that it is much cheaper to have things manufactured there). I searched the web for different manufacturers but haven't had much luck in finding anyone. Can anyone recommend a company/contact person etc that I can get in touch with to start developing my product?
Also, should I have a 3D image prior to contacting someone to do the prototype, and if so, does anyone have any recommendations/contacts on who to use? I'm new to this invention/new product development business, so any information would be very helpful.
Thx so much in advance.
