Although Indesign is not a manufacturer, we can support you in finding a suitable manufacturer in the event you do not yet have a relationship with one. Indesign engineers are very familiar with a wide range of manufacturing processes, working with factories throughout the world. We will provide support as needed to ensure a smooth transition from the design phase to factory production.
