My main goal is to get you dialed into Vietnam manufacturing.

If you are a start-up then I can teach you Vietnam specific manufacturing knowledge and introduce you to great resources like tech pack freelancers and in-depth online courses. My passion is helping you think through your business plan and get production done in Vietnam.

If you are an established business then I can quickly connect you to factories or professionals like lawyers, accountants, QC inspectors etc.

After living here for 12 years, working in factories and learning Vietnamese I am confident that whatever problem you are facing, I can offer a solution.

Do you have tech packs ready to show factories?
Vietnamese factories need your tech packs to quote price and make samples.
I wrote this book for you to be able to make your tech packs and understand how hard it is. If you have well done tech packs than half the battle is done.

Let's talk on Skype or WhatsApp
If you are ready to get price quotes and samples made then let's schedule a time to talk. I need to know more about your product, time line, quality control standards and business model. I have a series of questions I will ask to get an idea of where you are at and where you want to go.

1. Which products do you want to produce first?
2. Do you have any special factory requirements?
3. Have you produced before? If yes, then in what country?
4. Typically, what quantity per style per color do you order?
5. Does your company have a website?
6. Do you want to work with an agent or directly with the factory?
7. What are your payment terms?
8. What testing and QC do you require?
9. Do you plan to visit Vietnam?

I look forward to speaking with you.

I became interested in Sublimation in Vietnam when I was asked to find a good sublimation factory in 2011. I did not find any good sublimation printers in Vietnam whose price and quality was acceptable. Over the last three years I have visited almost every sublimation supplier and have found two I recommend. Komax and Viet Duc. Bottom line is that sublimation in Vietnam on a large scale is not developed yet.

What type of garment are you interested in? Sublimation for sports garments like bike racing jerseys? Or fashionable ladies wear like the pictures below?

Print, Cut and Sew- We offer the complete package.

My wife's family has a sewing factory and through them I have learned about the garment manufacturing side of the business. So, I can sublimate your garment, cut the fabric and sew it to deliver the complete solution. Quality control starts with yarn selection and ends with loading the container.

What is large format sublimation printing?

Sublimation printing is a printing method for transferring images onto a polyester fabric. Sublimation refers to a process where a substance moves from a solid to a gas state without ever being in a liquid state. The ink is printed onto a transfer paper or fabric and then goes through a heating unit running the inks through a heat-press making the colors "POP". The polyester fibers open up at high temperatures allowing the gas (formerly the ink) to sublimate into them, the fibers actually become the color. The printed fabric can be washed or ironed without color fading.

Large format refers to the width of the fabric. There are many sizes of printers that have widths ranging from 0.8 meter to 4 meters. Many printing companies in Vietnam have the smaller printers but there is only one large format sublimation printer in Vietnam that can offer 1.8 m width.
