Minimum Order: To qualify for wholesale pricing, accepted wholesale vendors must submit first orders of a minimum $300* and no less than 3* of any one item (mixtures of color for each item are okay - for example, 3 pairs of city grips, 1 each of a different color).

Application Process: Walnut Studiolo requires new interested vendors to complete a short online application form prior to their first order. The application form is a Google form located HERE. We will contact you after receiving your application and notify, within 2 business days, whether you have been accepted.
Acceptance: Please note that we have enacted the following guidelines for accepting vendors:
Walnut Studiolo will exercise its discretion in accepting vendors. Completion of the application form is not a guarantee of acceptance.
Being an accepted vendor is not a guarantee that we can fulfill all orders, depending on workload and current turnaround time. We will let you know as soon as possible if we cannot.
Lead Time and Stock Quantity: It depends on your order! In the Line List, we have a column indicating turnaround time as "Fast, Medium, or Slow" - generally this indicates how regularly and how fast we make batches of each product, and it is a reflection mostly of the amount of labor time and hand-stitching involved with each product. We keep a small stock of most of our items. If we have it in stock, we can turn it around in 1-3 business days. Small out-of-stock quantities can be turned around in 1-2 weeks. Large quantities are made to order. For large wholesale orders, we require a lead time of approximately one month, more or less, depending on our current work queue. We can provide an estimate or information on inventory for you if you have specific questions, just email us at email@example.com.
Blackout Times: Walnut Studiolo will only accept wholesale orders between January 1-October 15 due to the busy holiday season. Please put in your holiday orders early!
Packaging: In the Line List, we have a column indicating which products come with retail packaging included. We include a care card for each product.
Hang Tags: We can provide one branded hangtag per product in each order upon request. To order additional hangtags, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPC/EAN Bar Codes: Yes! We now have UPC/EAN bar codes. UPC/EAN codes are listed as a column in our Line List.
Payment Terms: Walnut Studiolo requires payment in full prior to beginning work.
Wholesale Program: This wholesale program and pricing are evolving and will be reviewed and revised from time to time, at least every January and every time a new product is launched. Please sign up for our wholesale news list if you'd like to be kept informed.
