Project step back and review
After the bank holiday I now have 20 days to finish this project; this is a personal target as I then want the final week of my degree to put the finishing touches on my website and folio. I have set myself the target of the 21st May to have a catalogue at the printers, I am shooting the models and athletes at the end of the week and throughout next week, this gives me 4 days to edit and put a catalogue together. I have set myself targets as this gives me something to work towards so that I do not end up at the last minute panicking having everything still to do. Tomorrow is the day to have all the labels sent off to print and furthermore finalise my ideas for the packaging and get that also sent off. I have been researching logo swing tags or lanyards to attach to the apparel and would love to do this however having made enquiries it is too expensive to do because of the minimum order number being 5000pcs in most cases which is put in place as it costs them a lot in terms of time to produce. I am considering trying to do it myself however I will see this as an extra little project if time allows as Im not sure my version will have the finesse that is required.
The project is turning to be quite expensive I am therefore now budgeting for each thing I need done. I am looking to take packaging ideas to a printers tomorrow and will try to negotiate a price however I still need to remember I need a fund to pay for the catalogue and any posters/cards that need printed.
