    I am looking for a board game manufacturer, preferably in the UK. I am looking to try and get an existing game manufactured locally to reduce the costs of shipping them in from abroad.

    Can anybody direct me to or recommend a company that may be able to produce such a thing? I will look at non-UK based companies also as they may be able to offer a competative price.

    Shannon board games are based in scotland. I met the owner at one of the Toy Fairs.

    http://www.shannongames.com/

    They are a small company.

    I think you will find that the money you save on only having to transport them within The UK will be greatly outweighed by the cost of getting the product made in the Far East (Although I could be wrong). This does depend on quantity though.

    Having a product made in the Far East is so much cheaper compaired to The UK that even by adding the shipping costs on top, it still works out cheaper.

    This doesn't take into account quality and copyright etc though.

    I used to have my card games manufactured overseas...initially it worked out cheaper but then as my business began to slowly become known in the industry i got a call from the uk card games manufacturer and they gave me a better quote.

    You cannot compare the quality the UK manufacturers have compared to the company I used to use. I am converted.

    Hello, I am looking for a board game manufacturer who is looking for a new product. I have a new product and would like to present it to an interested manufacturer. It is only a prototype at this time due to a lack of available materials both by design and sourcing problems.
