Sherry came up with the idea of customizable lighted signage that drivers could attach to their vehicles and display various attractive backlit images and sayings to share their moods, favorite sayings or even logo's for their favorite sports teams.  Interested in manufacturing her product, Sherry knew she would first need to develop good quality prototypes before making the larger investments in production runs.



When Sherry first contacted DCP, she had already hired 3 other engineering firms in an attempt to develop her product and all 3 failed to produce a working prototype that met her production requirements.  Understanding the issues and problems DCP recommended a strategy to first focus on solving the problem areas that were most critical to her prototype success.  After significant testing and tweaking, DCP found solutions to all of the problems and then successfully completed both prototype versions of her product.

Manufacturing Costing

Once the two quality prototypes were completed, approved and shipped to Sherry, DCP provided her with production estimates.  Sherry is now looking at various for production. 


“Prior to hiring Dirt Cheap Prototypes for the development of my vehicle lighting system, the three engineering firms I had previously hired all failed.  DCP was very honest, upfront, candid about their concerns and thoroughly vetted my product before taking it on to help ensure that it would be successful.  Also, to cut the cost and risk they first designed, built and tested the most challenging parts of my product that were the most critical to the success of the project and made sure they satisfactorily worked, before completing the rest of my prototype.  I am extremely satisfied with DCP’s price, quality, services and professionalism and I highly recommend them!"
