Production Tip: Make A Mock-up
One of the most important steps to the design process is the mock-up. Unfortunately it is also the most skipped step of the process because you think you are done and it's time to move on to the next project. So many times I thought a mock-up wasn't necessary or I was just too lazy. When pre-production samples came back the scale of the art was off.
These mistakes set our entire season back and make our deliveries late because we have resample till it's perfect. Take the time to print the artwork, cut it out and place it on where it is going to be applied. This step will save a ton of headaches ? "Cut once measure twice".
We are in the process of sampling our next seasons shirts right now. Here is what some of our upcoming designs look like to scale.
