Inspite of planning meticulously one of the things that most start up designers face is production problems. I was excited to work on a new range of laptop sleeves this time. Apart from market research, I had found out that the most common size of laptop used among people I know is the 14.5 inch Windows based systems.
The first sleeve I sampled though, was to fit my Mac notebook 15". For production I gave dimensions for 20 pieces of 14.5" Windows based systems to my vendor. Turns out he produces 20 pieces in the Mac 15" size!
All I can do now is hope that enough Mac 15" or 13" windows users visit my stall and like the sleeve.
You know what they say - Life is what happens when you are making other plans.
