Finally China has gotten on board with what I am asking of them and we will be getting product samples next month. Which means we will hopefully be following the time line of launching in August. Right before school starts. That is perfect timing!
Also, we are stamping the back of Product X with our company's initials - so cool! Along with that, we have an agreement with China that we own the molds and they can not be used for third party use. You would think that that would be obvious but it's not...it took asking (or telling, really) weeks to get them to put it in writing.
Once we have the sample approved we will be trademarking, patenting, creating the website, logo and such.
After China, all the other stuff seems like gravy to me...yea!
