At a guess i would say its the way a duvet cover is made, my mom made her own
version years ago and never thought anything about it but good luck.
I have a great idea but I will need help with design, manufacturing, and funding.
If I already have my idea patented, what is the next step to sell my idea to someone also looking to make profit from sales themselves? This idea involves helping to maintain the quality of clothing to save money, as well as universal confortability for shoes.
can you maybe indicate who will buy the product and why ie to save time or money
does it replace an existing product even.....
what price to end user ?
what type of supply channel ?
lots of people on here with experience in many areas , but reading such a vague "we need help " type posting isnt going to attract anyone serious.
get it patented it will be a worthwhile investment if it is successful. It doesn't cost that much.
Is the C*ck ring patented?
Try your local university. They are always interested in projects that take something from conception through to protype. If you have no money you could either offer it as a project, or go into partnership with them. There are some very skilled knowledgeable people in those university depts. And they are crying out for project.s
Sussed. It an extended stick that clips to the duvet making it easy to get the cover on. Retail about £5 quid used in lots of hotels.
I come across this situation from time to time, it's a classic 'light bulb' moment that people have. My advice would be to consider answering the following questions:
1. Who would buy this product?
2. What is the expected retail price?
3. If I don't buy your product, how much time/cost is the alternative(s)?
4. How will I sell the product (yourself over the web, distributors etc)?
5. How much will it cost to make the product (design, raw materials, etc)?
6. Can it be patented? Is there similar items out there?
Answer the above and you should get a very ballpark acid test as to whether you have a hobby or a business.
If it flies, then get interested parties to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA), as obtaining a patent can be thousands, assuming more than just the UK is pursued.
Persistence pays ... eventually!
