China is a large producer and exporter of snap buttons, so they offer very competitive pricing. This can help keep production costs down for clothing lines.
There are many China manufacturers that produce different types, sizes and designs of snap buttons. This ensures good options to meet your needs.
Shipping from China to global destinations is efficient, so snap buttons can generally be delivered within 2-4 weeks. This supports quick turnaround times for clothing brands.
Once you find a reputable supplier, the quality and consistency of the snap buttons they produce tends to be reliable from order to order.
Some China suppliers may use lower grade materials or have inadequate quality controls, resulting in defective snap buttons. Issues like malformed parts, poor rivet strength and corrosion are common. You have to vet suppliers carefully.
Due to language and cultural differences, clear communication about specifications, quality requirements and order details can sometimes be difficult with China suppliers. Misunderstandings are possible.
Intellectual property risks
Some unscrupulous China manufacturers may steal designs and produce counterfeit versions of your branded snap buttons for their own profit. You must have tight non-disclosure agreements in place.
Issues like COVID outbreaks, factory shutdowns, port congestion and shipping delays can impact the reliability of China snap button suppliers and disrupt your production timelines. You must plan for contingencies.
