statement of work (SOW)
Once your CPO 30-Days are up you will be presented with a comprehensive Statement of Work outlining the entire process, budget, and schedule to bring your product to life.
If Start to Ship is a good fit for you and your product based business goals, we'll start off with a 30-day strategy container where the TPP team will dive deeper into your wants, and product requirements.
We take 3-4 Start to Ship clients per 365 days, so it's important that we meet and all agree that TPP is the best option for you. Complete our intake form to get started.
Everything in the Statement look okay? Great? Let's get started with the Five Phase Development cycle (as outlined in your SOW). Check out the grid below for details on the five phases.
You'll jump into a 30 day strategy container to lay the ground work for your development. Here you'll meet your team of designers, and fabricators who will bring your product to life.
Finally bring your ideas into the world with our design services. Execute back of house design decisions like selecting materials, meeting with factories, and build your samples all the way through production orders. Here you'll also say goodbye to standard cardboard or plastic wrappings. Design a full packaging portfolio with your team, including branded shipping boxes so your goods make waves even en-route.
Now that the design is out of the way it's time to begin a true development cycle. This is the point in the process when we will work with factories, and fabricators to execute sample runs so you can hold what we like to call "first articles". Changes and tweaks may happen but you'll be off to production in (typically) six weeks.
Create a holistic brand so you and your customers know what you’re about from the start. Our branding experts work closely with you to take the brand ideas that have been in your head and introduce them to the world.
Your brand and product is live, but you’re too busy to print packing labels and ship orders, or too overwhelmed to vet a new team to do it for you. Let us help. Our centrally located Dallas warehouse can meet all of your logistics and e-commerce fulfillment needs.
"Prior to partnering with TPP, I felt my ideas were not being heard. Upon my initial meeting with Alia, I felt 100% confident in my decision to move forward. Having a one-stop-shop to meet all of my product development needs while providing expert advice throughout the process was a great relief!"

It just won’t be worth it to the buyer or you anymore. Whether it’s because someone beat you to it or the tech evolved or whether it’s because their lives have changed or society’s moved on, you need to strike while the iron is hot.
Technology will evolve. We’ve seen how quickly technology can solve issues that took humans decades to figure out. If your product idea might at all be affected by some sort of technology, the time to act is now.
Someone’s going to beat you to it. Your idea might be incredibly unique, but statistically, someone around the world has come up with something similar. And they might be moving faster.
As product development experts, we can confidently tell you that if you wait another 6 months to begin this process, there’s a chance you’ll miss out completely. We see it happen all the time and it usually comes down to one of these three things:
Pretty soon, your million-dollar idea isn’t going to be worth a million dollars.
Let’s not beat around the product bush – I’m like, really-good at what I do. So good, in fact that I quit my dream job in the couture fashion buying department at Neiman Marcus to build The Product Place from scratch. See, I’ve had this calling– I’ve been in the product industry for almost 15 years, I’ve launched Rum brands, leather jackets, wrinkle-proof serums, and even kid’s shoes (Omg you can not even imagine the cuteness of the fit models), so when I was faced with corporate or bust, I doubled down on what I know I could replicate for babes like you—designing and shipping products all around the world...and I Fu*king love it.
