Below is our interview with Alex Phelan, Chief Executive Officer at Merchadise:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Merchadise is the New Way of doing customized products. We’ve set in motion The Ultimate Customization Ecosystem that connects suppliers, decorators, art services, manufacturing, order management & fulfillment and E-Commerce services to provide the best custom solutions for brands and their clients.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: How do we connect the Ecosystem for Customization? We’ve developed our own proprietary technology and APIs specially designed to manage and integrate every step of the sourcing, production, E-Commerce and fulfillment process. Plus, of course, our exceptional team of industry experts.
Not only that, but all products are sourced, manufactured and ready to be shipped within continental United States and Mexico, which means sustainability and efficiency. Brands can now forget about dreadful ocean freights, import-export frictions and never-ending lead times.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: We’re focusing on brands, we already have started and will continue to help brands that have a branded merch businesses that they need to convert into E-Commerce, and with that conversion into the online commerce they also need a more efficient supply chain. There will be a lot of diversity in the brands we will be working with. From retail brands, to lifestyle brands, to large promotional brands, corporate workwear, team sports uniforms. All these different brand categories actually go through the same branded merch process. The world will see the flexibility of this new Customization Ecosystem.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: We work only with the best customization technologies: Direct to Film, Cut & Sew Dye Sublimation, Embroidery, Screen printing and DTG. We only produce retail-grade custom products. Low-quality manufacturing processes and products are a huge NO for us.
We want brands to save time and money. Merchadise offers quick onboarding and fast turnarounds. No shipping containers stranded at ports or supply chain bottlenecks.
