Endowing a Founder’s Spirit – Early Adopter Program
To endow the founder’s spirit of support and ownership amongst the garment decoration industry at large, we have created a way to extend the founder’s spirit and magnify the customer connection and associated results we can gain by BRINGING THE FIRE to the masses.
- Starting with the launch of the Allmade IndieGoGo campaign, we will be raising money by selling Allmade early adopter positions for Allmade inventory. A garment decorator who believes in the Allmade vision and wants to secure access to inventory before the general market can secure their position by contributing $500 to the campaign. The perk secures you an inventory position as an early adopter, your first case of Allmade shirts (72), and a marketing package including a sample set of 9 Allmade shirts. Early adopters can enhance their experience and commitment by purchasing a trip to Haiti or the Carolina’s with Allmade founders for $2200 or $1200 respectively.
- Positions will start at number 11, directly after the 10 founders. Allmade founders will have priority access to inventory, and early adopter inventory positions will start filling as soon as there is inventory available. We estimate Q4 of 2017 or Q1 of 2018.
- Early adopters will be embraced by Allmade and its founding members, invited to exclusive events and trips, and help provide feedback to our steering committee.
- Early adopters will be listed on our website in the order in which they committed to the early adopter program.
Thank you for taking advantage of this incredible opportunity to step behind the print and Make It Better! Bring the fire!
How do the shirts print?
Allmade tri-blend shirts are market competitive with Bella Canvas and Next Level, and Allmade cotton shirts are market competitive to American Apparel and Alternative Apparel.
What will the lead times be in terms of getting them to our facility, should we sell to one of our customers? Where are the goods shipped from? How many transit days are we looking at?
Allmade will initially stock and distribute our main size and colors out of Kansas City, which is under a 3 day ship to the majority of the contiguous US. We should be able to handle orders up to 10,000 out of there and in that time frame, larger orders will take some more planning as we do not want to deplete inventory for the rest of our founding and early adopter customers.
Will there be different lead times for different colors?
We can create custom colors for any of our approved styles, a custom color order will take 6-8 weeks to complete from start to finish at a minimum of 2500 garments.
Will there be additional fits and styles?
We will be slowly expanding our fit and our line of styles, on the agenda right now are kids, racerback tanks, standard tanks, raglans, and lightweight hoodies. Custom styles will be considered for orders over 10k pieces.
What exactly will the Early Adopter role include?
First of all it, it secures an inventory position for you. We will open up ordering and inventory to early adopters in the order in which they committed to this perk. As we have more inventory to distribute, we will open it up to the next early adopter in sequential order. Becoming a part of this special group also includes inclusion in our founder updates, marketing material and sample packs, invitations to special events and trips, an invitation to provide feedback to our steering committee, and your first case of t-shirts as soon as we can open up inventory. Early adopters will be listed on our website in order in which they committed to the early adopter program.
