We started to sell the Imagiplanks on our website as well as a couple of online retailers. We had 2 committed manufacturers and we decided to have them each make 10 sets. I thought, that if we got real lucky we would sell 20 sets. We ended up selling more then double that in the first 3 weeks! This is one of those “good” problems to have in business that at the same time is extremely stressful.
I called one of our manufacturers to see if he could make some more product for us. Turns out he not only could not make any more, he had not finished the original 10! Fortunately our other manufacturer was up for quadrupling his order so long as we pay overtime for his workers. This was the same manufacturer whose product I had check so we felt confident he would do a good job.
