FROM THOUSANDS OF TAPS AND ENDLESS USES COME THE SUCCESS STORIES OF
SHINE— AND THAT'S THE WAY IT'S BEEN SINCE WE STARTED FIVE YEARS AGO. IF A
COMPANY IS KNOWN BY THE COMPANY IT KEEPS, THEN SHINE TRULY LEADS THE FIELD,
FOR THE IMPRESSIVE LIST OF COLLABORATORS INCLUDES SATISFIED BUSINESSES, BOTH
LARGE AND SMALL, FROM TIDEWATER TO TOKYO.
WE SEE IT AS THE FAINT HEARTED NEVER WON FAIR MAIDEN, NOR LOYAL CUSTOMER FOR THAT MATTER. TO STAND OUT, DESIGN MUST BE BOLD — INTRIGUING — UNIQUE. THE PRESTIGE OF A COMPANY IS REFLECTED BY THE FINISHED PRODUCT THEY OFFER, AS WELL AS WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. A BRAND IS OFTEN A COMPANY'S PRIMARY CONTACT WITH PRESENT AND POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS, THE PUBLIC AND THE BUSINESS WORLD — IT'S GOT TO STAND OUT TO BE SEEN, TO BE NOTICED, TO ACTIVATE.
ONE ORDER DOESN'T MAKE A BUSINESS, NOR DOES A PIECE OF ROLLED STEEL. IT TAKES DESIGN BY EXPERTS, SELECTION OF QUALITY MATERIALS AND FINE CRAFTSMANSHIP TO PRODUCE AUTHENTIC GEAR. SHINE VESSELS ARE MADE FROM STAINLESS STEEL, FINISHED BY PROS AND COVETED BY FANATICS.
BEST-IN-CLASS DIGITAL DESIGN & RENDERING
Our studio has fully embraced 3D design and product rendering in all areas of our business. We use top tier platforms and modeling engines for product development all the way to the product images you see on our site. 3D models are a standard part of our collaboration process and every partner receives high resolution images for production approval and to use as marketing assets.
We start with a simple conversation to understand a partner's goals. From there we develop a scope that includes the specs of the job and the project costs. Once the admin stuff is baked we get into the fun stuff. Our studio assigns your project a specific designer that you will work with directly throughout the entire process. Depending on the need, we'll develop initial concepts for you to review and we'll continue to evolve them until it's nailed- no limit on the number of rounds. From there we'll move into production and partners then approve a digitally-rendered 3D model for production. It's as close to the real thing as it gets and we'll provide those hi-res assets for you to use for marketing, presales or whatever you choose.
There's a thousand drinkware suppliers out there- we get it. None of them go to the intricate production and design levels we do however. 60% of our supply chain is based right here in Virginia. We have to buy rolled steel from overseas because we've not found a domestic outlet for that material and process. We then work with small, local fabricators on every aspect of finishing, cleaning, assembly and decoration. For the majority of our products, each one passes through 3-4 different facilities in Virginia and is hand inspected for QA. Our goal is to one day develop a 100% stainless steel, domestically made, vacuum insulated drinkware product. We're constantly following up on leads to increase the amount of VA-based fabrication in our supply chain.
Yes. But not by much. If you're in the market for disposable schwag then we're not the right partner. However if you compare our prices to any other premium branded insulated drinkware supplier then you'll see our costs are about the same. We encourage you to research before contacting us!
Our standard project turnaround is 4 weeks. We can go faster but we'll need to make some special arrangements.
We're careful in what projects we take on because it's pretty easy to overwhelm our supply chain. If you are interested in chatting with us please start by hitting the button below.
