New here! ...I Have a Prototype (and working with lawyer on patent)...NOW WHAT?

mendyfisch's Avatar

Hi! I'm new here, nice site. Hopeful that I can gain some helpful insight as well as be of assistance to others in the community ;-)

Ok.... so through painstaking patience and a lot of time and work and money I think I finally may have a finished prototype of my product that I want to create. Also met with a lawyer who is beginning the process of patenting the invention for me.

Now, I'd like to get the item manufactured in China. How do I go about doing that with this prototype? How do I go about dealing with Chinese factories to make a mold for my product and have them manufacture it? Are there services that do this? Like some sort of international liaison who knows where to source my particular line? 

Any help and tips would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

Hi Mendy,

Welcome to EN!  You found the right community to join as an inventor!  We are all like-minded and love to see the growth of ideas!

What type of material does your invention use?

I used Alibaba.com to source my manufacturer as they have a star-rating system and a number of years in business.  It helped me tremendously.

Wishing you the best with your idea!
