Frequently Asked Questions
Some of our key questions and answers
How Detailed Should My Enquiry Be?
The more information you can provide to our engineers, the better we can serve you. Product design and development are all about the details, which means we would love to know what makes your idea special.
How Does Idea to Life Protect My Idea?
At Idea to Life, we protect all enquiries under a general Non-Disclosure Agreement. This means that any details you submit to us are automatically covered and will not be shared outside our team. If required, we can provide the NDA to you, giving you the peace of mind that your idea remains your own and is protected under law.
How Much Does It Cost To Create A Product?
Idea to Life and its sister companies have a proud history of cost-effective product design and manufacturing. However, the honest answer is that the exact price can depend on many variables. The more information you can provide, the more accurately we can estimate a figure.
After a free initial consultation, we can lay out a path forward with you, breaking down costs, timelines and project requirements. We can help no matter what stage you’re at, from initial concept design, right up to final manufacturing.
What Materials Can You Use?
At Idea to Life, we work with most materials. At our core, we deal with plastics and metals in all manufacturing methods including casting, forging, machining, fabrication, injection moulding, and more.
Whilst we do not generally deal with wood or chemical production, we may be able to find a supplier for specific components if your product requires it. Please keep in mind that Idea to Life can make devices, packaging and framework for use with timber or chemicals just not the chemicals themselves.
If you would like more information, please feel free to contact us with your product idea.
