Straight from the LavaLab, these 230 gram ladies tops are creatively fresh and make a bold statement with its shocking pink trims. Loudgear (our client) designed these tops to ensure that the Queens of Tugwell Hall at UCT are hip and happening – but this was a task intensive process that had us biting our nails right up to the last minute because of its extremely tight deadline.
Here’s a summarized version of what happened:
- We developed patterns from scratch according to the client’s specification and size curve
- sourced 230 gram ribbed fabric (black) at a price that was good enough to maintain the client’s budget
- dyed the pink fabric according to clients specification
- supplied fit samples
- processed artwork for screen printing
- processed artwork for digitizing
- cut and soabarred the garment panels to ensure that all panels and sizes were easily identifiable
- pre-planned printing and embroidery to ensure consistency in colours for printed and embroidered finishes i.e. the print colours had to match the embroidered colours.
- also ensuring that the sizing of the print and embroidered logos were suitable for all the garment sizes (small to 3 Xlarge)
- sent the appropriate panels for printing (2 colours sleeve, 2 colours back)
- sent the panels for embroidery
- assembled the garments
- quality checked and removed rejects
- ironed and flat-packed
- re-did all rejects.
All of this in 16 days.
