From the startof our experience*** with Printing-
in-China, beginning there in

***In our experience, printing in China
is different from,
a silicon chip from amongst
deliverables of a manufacturer,
and then ordering a million of exactly
that tested chip,
by FedEx Airfreight in,
in China requires upfront planning
clearly detailed communications-&-acknowledgement,
certainly including two-way
exchange of samples, all before suitable production time,
and then four-to-eight-week ocean delivery.

it's also an investment of substantial
China is after all, a land where a broad range of
with relevant skills, have been so highly
valued that Kublai Kahn engaged

two or three weeks to produce,
varying with complexity of specs
and the supervision/skilled work required
plus time for
freight (4 weeks)
and Homeland Security clearance (0-4 weeks)
plus time for inland freight (1-to-5 days)
