Partner Application

Please download and fill out our application to the best of your ability and send it back to us at application@inwtradingco.com.

Why partner with us?

Inland Northwest Trading Co. is an emerging subscription box service connecting consumers to makers in the Inland Northwest. For the purposes of our company, the Inland Northwest includes Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho, Western Montana, and Northeastern Oregon. Any makers in this region are welcome to submit an application to become one of our partners, and it is our hope to work with as many vendors as we can. 

Each month, our handcrafted and individually curated boxes will be delivered to our subscribers. Each box will contain a variety of unique, Inland Northwest made items including (but not limited to!) candles, personal care products, greeting cards, prints, stickers, jewelry, and as many other handmade goods as we can get our hands on. 

What kind of products are we looking for?

Because we want to keep our service as accessible as possible to as many people as possible, we will offer our boxes at three price points: $29.99/mo., $39.99/mo., and $49.99/mo. Each subscription price point determines how many items will come in the subscriber’s box each month — the more you pay, the more you get! 

Staying affordable to our subscribers means that we will only be able to feature items from a few makers each month. However, once signed up for our service, subscribers will continue to receive a new box filled with new items every month. This means that we need as many partners as possible to ensure that our boxes are exciting, fresh, and a little unexpected. 

This application is meant to provide us with a better idea of who you are, along with what you make. Although we would like to include more high-end artisan goods in our boxes, at this time we are only featuring items in our price range ($0.00-$8.00 WSP). Please also keep in mind that we are only able to place wholesale orders with Inland Northwest makers that can offer us quantities of 50-100+ items at a time

We would love to work with every vendor that submits an application, but unfortunately we will not be able to say yes to everyone that applies. However, if your items are too expensive to be included in our boxes, we would ask you to consider making a custom item especially for our boxes at a price-point that works for everybody.

How can you apply?

Be as specific as you want. Again, this application is to give us a better understanding of who you are and what you make. A big part of our subscription service will be the stories behind the makers (you!), so the better the story the more likely we are to contact you right away!

Include a range of your items. When we ask you to describe three items, we recommend you choose one low-price item ($0.00-$2.50 WSP), one mid-price item ($3.00-$5.00 WSP), and one high-price item ($6.00-$8.00 WSP). If your items are more expensive than these price points, consider making a custom item especially for our boxes at a price-point that works for everybody. 

Be honest. If you really, really want to work with us, but you can’t meet our price points, please let us know! As our company grows, we would like to include higher-price items in higher-priced boxes. For now, we will keep your application on file and reach out to you when we are able to include more expensive goods. 

Thank you for your interest in our company. We are so excited to embark on this great adventure, and we can’t wait to work with you to get your products in the hands of our subscribers!
