I’ve been a frequent visitor to Guangzhou wholesale markets and it is not uncommon when most buyers asked to buy cheap clothes in Guangzhou but can’t afford the high prices of OEM orders, feeling great ecstasy about the extremely incentive prices of stocks, yet depressed about the limitations these stock clothes offer.
The following is a summary about the difference between OEM orders and stocks.
Advantages: Can custom made clothes sizes, length, design, fabric, logo, tag, watermark, etc.
Disadvantages: Almost twice the price than stock clothes
It takes time to manufacture new clothes
Usually with minimum order quantity
Disadvantages: Can’t custom made clothes sizes, length, design, fabric, logo, tag, watermark, etc.
To enjoy the low price, sometimes you have to buy all the stocks
Different quantity for different sizes and colors
Usually the style is a bit out-dated
If you are marketing your own brand, it is better to do OEM orders and some carefully selected stocks whose logos, tags, watermark, etc. can be easily pulled out and replaced by yours.
