Made in the U.S.A.

Over the years the stigma of buying something overseas has slowly disappeared. Most of us have accepted the fact that most manufacturing of American  apparel and accessories has moved to foreign countries like China, India, Taiwan, Indonesia, Mexico and the list goes on. The fact is that these American companies can make a quality product at a lower cost and pass that savings on the to consumer and still make a good profit. To confirm this all you have to do is to go into any Nordstrom, Macys’, Walmart, Target, JC Penny and a look at the tag to see where the purse has been manufactured. It will astonish you how many of the goods we buy are from overseas. Yet again, we don’t mind as long as the quality is there. The stigma used to be that if it was made in China it was cheap, but today those countries like China have become very good over the years through their skilled labor force and technological advancements in manufacturing equipment to produce high quality product at a acceptably low cost. I could go on for ever on this topic so to save you from falling asleep I’ll stop here a I think you get my point.

In the industry of personalization, especially Photo Handbags, manufacturing overseas becomes a challenge and this is why. The product has to have the personalized photos added to the products so the process of mass production to get the lower cost changes because you are customizing each piece. So what a lot of Companies have done is find products that have been mass produced overseas (pre made) and finish them here in the US by adding last step (adding your photo) to the process to finish the bag. The result is a Photo Purse the looks cheap feels cheap, unclear image and the bottom line is not what you imaged when you first desired a quality handbag. This where the saying “You get what you pay for” comes in.

If you are looking for a photo handbag that you can get quickly at a low price then by all means there are plenty of companies that use this method and give you that quality of product. But if you are looking for High Quality, Fashion Forward, Long Lasting, Photo Hand bag then you have come to the right place.
