I don`t see how they sell them so cheap.
The embroidery I use on my products costs more than the selling price for those two pieces.

I don't understand how they would work on a Fiero because of the integral headrests.

Yea, they are Hong Kong based and charging $10 for shipping. It probably costs in all actuality $4 to ship in bulk like they do. The other $6 + the $8 = $14, which is the "Actual price" that they are getting. The price of materials in Hong Kong or China is INSANE! I have been there a few times, and raw materials like fabric and thread and such are pennies on the dollar there.

Where we may pay $12 for a spool of embroidery thread, that same roll could cost like 50 cents in Hong Kong from the manufacturer. They in turn sell that to some company for a profit, who then sells it to a distributor and makes a profit, who then ships and sells it to a company in the US again someone making a profit, then it is sold to a retail store for another profit, then that store marks it up significantly to a retail price that we pay in the store.

This is what makes it so hard for the little guy owning a business to remotely compete price wise with this type of stuff. Sad Ok, Rant over, sorry hehehe

As for head rest covers, yea that is interesting. The Fiero really does not have "head rests" technically. Just a narrower upper portion of the seat. What will keep these in place and not rolling up and popping off is going to be interesting.
