  4. If you require a sample, sample prices are 2-3 times higher than the business price. This is because samples consume more time to make individually, and may require us buying more materials then needed for that sample due to the minimum requirements to buy from the supplier or if the order is printed, we may need to buy the ink that will not always end up being used, and hence increase the cost.

Yes, we can work with digital prints. You can send the file through Corel Draw or vector file and we will print it on to the fabric. It costs between USD 8.00 to USD 15.00 per square meter depending on the fabric. For higher material fabric, the printing tends to be more towards the higher end. If you don’t have file in Corel draw/vector file, we can design for you at your cost USD 30/design
The following is the benefit of Digital Printing:

  1. Digital printing will not require additional cost to set it up. Compared to screen printing, it will cost 70 USD per screen color.
  2. When using digital printing, the colors are not limited, unlike screen printing, which can only support a maximum of 4 colors.
  3. Digital printing does not require much time, while still producing high quality designs. This will allow business to be respond faster to changing customer needs.
  4. Compared to screen printing, digital printing has a lower minimum order quantity. This will lower cost as you will not need to buy additional fabric to meet to the minimum quantity.
  5. This also makes it more suitable for sampling. As it does not involve working mixing paints, the risk of not matching computer designs will be minimized.
  6. Unlike screen printing, which is done by workers physically, digital printing will minimize rejects.
  7. Hence, the colors of each product will not vary.

However, we are still able to do both digital and screen printing, depending on what best suit customer needs. Besides digital, we also have an in house facility to print through traditional silk screen printing. We are also able to batik process through cop wax stamp, hand painting, or tie-dye/dyeing.

Do you have a quality control system?
We have 10 critical point control each step process
Our quality has also improved significantly over the years. To ensure our customers receive the best products, we implemented TQM (Total Quality Management). During each production process, we inspect the quality.

  1. When the white raw materials first arrive, we examine the fabric to ensure it aligns with the order (construction, color, unit order).
  2. Before and after printing, we inspect the products again to check the products’ prints, color, and size and if it fulfilled the requirements of the order.
  3. Checking all the material after coming from the dying, printing or batik process about color, spot, tread etc
  4. While stacking the fabric to cut, we go through each layer so there are no rejects.
  5. We check again after cutting before handling them to the seamstresses for sewing.
  6. After sewing, we assess the fabric to ensure it has the right size, color, thread, sewing method, buttons, and labels
  7. Checking all size and other specification of the result from sewing before placing label, tag, pin, barcode, sticker and pack in polybag and carton box
  8. Our final checking uses Pro-forma to make sure each SKU by piece and total quantity order matches before handling it to the containers
  9. We inform customer about the ready items to be shipped and inform them of the trucking number, delivery time, arrival date, export document and ensure our customers have received all the goods following order and specification. 
  10. We will review together with the customer after opening the boxes in case of any rejects.
