The general guide line on MOQs is actually based on the total value of the order, rather than just the quantity.
Thus a low priced mouse will normally be in 000s and more expensive products generally have a floor at around 500+.
An advantage that Freedom can often negotiate for their clients is a lower MOQ based on the overall business we can represent to the factory concerned.
Printers the world over hate very low runs, for good reason on the set up and wastage.
Thus it is punitive to go for less than 1,000 units on own designed / styled packaging.
However it is also standard for the "extra 500 units" to be held by the supplier to be added as a FOC item on the next order.
