Hello Touch Guy! My name is Jeffery. I have a new product that I would like to finish the prototype for, but…I cannot find a flexible, yet durable touch film (no glass) I can use. The size needs to be approximately 12″ x 12″ (+/- 1 or 2″) but I am willing to look at other options. I am talking to the TV show, Shark Tank, and counting on a few other companies to bring this product to market. The problem I am facing is manufacturing’s willingness to deal with me. I’m not asking for something for free and am willing to pay for a sample unit, but the supplier must be able to supply 1,000 units at a time.
Do you have any suggestions for companies that can provide a flexible touch film?
