Lay out your expectations and get better quality!
Having a Spec Sheet and/or Tech Pack helps make the quality assurance process smoother and better. This is a document per garment specifying everything from stitches per inch, pantone colors, weight of fabric, points of measure, label placement etc… so the factory knows EXACTLY what you expect. This document eliminates many problems before they exist. Then, using this document to check pre-production samples and production is a clear way to be sure the factory is meeting the requirements. Many times it is not the factory that is poor but could be the quality of information going to the factory that is poor. Fix the informationand fix the quality problems.
