I'm new to the startupnation community, but have been enjoying the podcasts and website for a year or two now.
I am currently moving into the prototype phase for a product I have been working on. I'm trying to keep on top of things by doing what I can while my designer finishes drafting my product. I have already made arrangements for creating the prototype.
I would like to begin putting a sell sheet together (a little pre-mature, I know). I want to find out estimates on how much this product would cost to produce, so I can show ROI on my sell sheet (among other financials). It will be made out of a durable plastic.
Can anyone help me out with who I contact about manufacturing this product, as far as cost estimates go? Or if there are resources online that I can utilize? I do not have any sort of patent or provisional on this product as of yet, so wherever I find information on manufacturing, it has to be estimates, because I can't disclose specifics on my design.
