Get the designs on paper first, ask an experienced yoyo designer for feedback (people like gocrazyforyoyos, machinist, )or post right on the forums especially if this is your first time. If the designs are good, then look into finding a good CAD program once that is done ask for more feedback and find a machinist. Many us based companies have their own machinist that they go to so you can ask around while many companies use gruntbull for ano.

From experience, I would choose from the following:

To design the yoyos, either get autodesk 123d design and try to figure out how to make a yoyo using that (or I can make a tutorial for you if you need it), or you can contact a professional named Landon Balk (owner of 3yo3), you may have heard of him. His email address is landon3yo3@gmail.com

To actually make the yoyos, contact Alvin from Foxland Precision. His website link is:http://billybobsbaitandtackle.com. They make great yoyos that are high-quality. The other option would be to save up a ton of money, buy and learn how to use a metal lathe machine, by the materials, and try to make them yourself. I recommend the other one, though.

I hope you have better luck than I did. Good luck.

Any questions? PM me

I want to start a yoyo company, but I don't know who manufactures, how to design them, or where to get them anodized...

We're being trolled, right?

I'd suggest doing your homework before making a logo. The things you don't know are far more important.

Film a screenshot of myself making a yoyo, then explain what I am doing. It's not that hard.
