How to Get Manufactured Plush by celesse How to Get Manufactured Plush by celesse
I've been getting a lot of questions on how to get professionally manufactured plushies, so I thought I'd make a quick "tutorial" :lol:

There's no trick to it really, it just involves making a substantial investment and throwing a LOT of money at a company, usually to the tune of $2,000-$3,000.

There are a lot of companies out there that specialize in producing custom plush (though none are named Plush-R-Us or operate from lemonade stand booths to my knowledge) and they are more than happy to work with you to make your plush perfect, but they usually require a minimum order of 500. That's a lot. You can't get just one or two made.

It's definitely not something anybody can do on a whim or for fun, unless you have three grand to waste. And you have to consider the design carefully because if the plushies don't sell you're out a butt-load of money.

It's been a fun and rewarding experience for me though. My own plushies are selling well enough that I'm definitely considering doing more in the future :)

Edit: Added a happy customer panel :XD:

Minimum is 500 pieces means you have to order at least 500 plushies. So if you calculate, that's $6 a piece~

Hey What company do you order your plushies from?
The ones I find through google don't seem to have very high quality ^^'
