Seattle Made Virtual Youth Tours

Each year, Seattle Made Week Youth Tours bring dozens of local youth into the production spaces of Seattle Made producers and manufacturers. These interactive experiences have helped to expose and engage young adults looking to uncover their passion and seek unique and meaningful career pathways, while understanding the true meaning of local urban manufacturing and entrepreneurship.

You may think of assembly lines or dirty factories when you think of urban manufacturing, but it is so much more! On a youth tour you get to see first hand, how people make everything from chocolate to cheese, from glass art to skateboards, and everything in between, right here in Seattle! Check out some of our past and current tour hosts below! The list is always growing!

On each tour, we provide youth with resources and opportunities that they can look into if they are interested in internships, job shadowing, classes, and more. 

We do not provide transit for tour groups. Tour groups typically rent vans, or buses for their groups, but if you are unable to, we can help coordinate a public transit route. 

Translation services, and other required needs may be requested on the sign up form below.

This year, we will be altering this experience as Seattle Made Week turns virtual! Interns who have been working with Seattle Made businesses, as part of Seattle Good Business Network’s inaugural internship program, will be taking us through a virtual tour of their businesses and offering a ‘peek behind the scenes’ of spaces, products, and more. Each intern and their hosting business is excited to show Seattle Made Week attendees and Seattle’s youth ‘who makes what in Seattle’ and what it means to produce locally.

Have you already been on a tour? Make sure to give us your feedback to help us improve future experiences!

Learn about our youth programming, internships, and more!

With the support of Seattle-King County’s Workforce Development Council (WDC) and City of Seattle’s Office of Economic Development, we connect local young adults from low-income and BIPOC communities who also face a number of barriers including, but not limited to: homelessness, foster care, and joblessness to local businesses for a meaningful learning, career-building, and exposure opportunity.

We help connect local youth to learning opportunities with local businesses, producers, and organizations. This internship opportunity will not only provide the young adults a unique experience to build and learn new or specialized skills, but will also uncover what it means to work for a local business and be an entrepreneur.

Above all, we are building a safe space and stronger career pipelines for all youth who seek belonging and opportunities for growth. We prioritize the health and vibrancy of all our community members and strive for equitable solutions.

Circular Economy

The below is just a quick overview, learn more about the Circular Economy here, and how it relates to you as a local business owner. See how you can be engaged in a more circular economy!

The Circular Economy aims to redefine the way we live, work, and do business. It changes our extractive “take, use, and dispose” model, to a more environmentally and socially regenrative one. 
 
It entails gradually decoupling economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, and designing waste out of the system. 

 

It is underpinned by a transition to renewable energy sources, that builds economic, natural, and social capital.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

  • You must be a Seattle Made member to be featured at the store.
  • After you have been selected for inclusion you should receive an order (PO) from an individual buyer at Stellar. In some cases the buyers have assistant buyers so please be aware that subsequent orders may come from assistant buyers.
  • Consider adding the Seattle Made logo to your packaging or tags. Visible Seattle branding appeals to travelers.
  • Buyers will review new product lines on a rolling basis. Feel free to submit any time you have a new product launch. Please review the submission process to submit new lines. 
  • Please be patient with buyer inquiries. Buyers are often out on the road but should respond to inquires within 7 – 10 days. 
  • Buyers should be able to provide you sell-through sheets so you are able to plan production accordingly. Ask your buyer if they can produce a sell-through sheet for you on a quarterly basis.


STEPS TO PROCESS YOUR ORDER

1. Confirm your order with your buyer

Reply “Received” to your buyer and supply chain at supplychain@spi-team.com


2. Create your order including UPC and retail pricing labels

You must be capable of including UPC and retail labels on your products based on your PO order. Stellar can create UPC codes for you, so you do not need to purchase them, but you will need to create the labels. The barcodes can be produced here.

Be sure to include an invoice or packaging slip in your shipment. The store team must verify it against what is included in the box. 


3. Ship your order through FedEx

All shipments are paid for by Stellar Airports if they are processed by FedEx on the Stellar Airport account. Please review the attached documents below to ship your items via FedEx. Failure to Comply with Stellar Shipping Guidelines will result in chargebacks or refusal of product.

4. Submit your invoice

Please submit all invoices including your Stellar created invoice number to: stellarinvoices@hmshost.com.

Price Discrepancies – Price increases will not be honored unless approved prior to processing the order.                        

Discontinued Items – Reply to your buyer and supply chain at supplychain@spi-team.com.

Out of Stock or Backordered Items – Backorders will only be accepted upon approval. Please notify Stellar of any items that will not ship or provide in stock date to request approval for extension. Reply to your buyer and supply chain at supplychain@spi-team.com.  

Cancellation Date –  Please be sure to ship your order by Stellar’s listed ship date. Stellar will create a cancellation date approximately 3 days after the listed ship date.The system will then cancel out the PO if it is not “received” by Stellar by the cancellation date.


5. Issues with invoices or past due payment Inquiries

For any payment questions, past-due invoices, or credit memos, email (spreadsheet format is preferred and of course reference invoice number) opccustomersupport@hmshost.com

Invoices (example of Net 30) do not start until the order has been processed at the store so please consider shipping time and an additional 2 – 3 days for the store to confirm your inventory before considering an invoice overdue. In most cases, I have recommended waiting a Net 40 from the day items have been shipped before inquiring about an overdue payment.
