Suomalaiset naiset veivät neulomolaisten sydämet

Neulomo pyysi mittoja ja vartalokuvia. Mitä he saivat? Yhteensä 825 mielenkiintoista, hämmästyttävän rohkeaa mallihakemusta, täynnä upeita ja yllättäviä tarinoita, jotka nostattivat niin naurun kuin liikutuksen kyyneleitä silmiin. Kiitos teille kaikille!

Mikä ihmeen ennakkomyynti?

Ennakkomyynti on herättänyt jonkin verran kyselyjä, ja koska aiomme käyttää tätä toimintamallia tuotannossa jatkossakin, päätimme avata ennakkomyynnin toimintaperiaatteita!   MITEN ENNAKKOMYYNTI TOIMII?

Tässä on myös suurin ero perinteiseen tuotantoon nähden: perinteisen tuotannon haasteena voi olla, että kysyntää on enemmän kuin tuotteita on valmistettu.
