- Design/Production Calendar $15 -Thinking about starting a line but not sure where to begin? Our Design/Production will help you design with organization and time-management. The calendar provides a timeline for each process including when to start sourcing fabric, begin design development, sampling, production, etc! As you develop your collection, this calendar will have you market ready every season. This calendar is specific to the Women’s Apparel market so if you are doing children’s, men’s, or accessories, your calendar may look a little different. However once you have the selling dates for those markets you can work backwards to create your own calendar. Also this calendar only includes the 2 main seasons, Spring and Fall. As a new designer you will want to start with this, as doing all 6 seasons would be nearly impossible.
- Buying/Sales Calendar $15 -In order to succeed in wholesale sales, you MUST be aware of the seasonal selling, delivery windows, and shipping dates in order to work effectively with buyers. This calendar will help you stay on track so you never miss a season! You DO NOT want to ship late to your stores especially on your first order! Plus it will bring you one step closer to entering the US fashion market. It’s important to know all 6 seasons here as some seasons do overlap and can extend longer depending on the item you are selling. This will be useful when you are quoting delivery dates and cancel dates to buyers. When combined with the Production calendar, it will also help you to know when your cut off date for taking orders should be. We’ve also included the exact Delivery dates for each season as well as some information on the Childrens, Mens, and Accessory markets.
- Sales Order & Terms form Template $15 -The Sales order form is what the buyer uses to actually write up the order. It is usually included along with line sheets so that a buyer can easily place an order. While a lot of orders are placed on line these days, it is still crucial to have a physical form as you want to capitalize on the buyer’s excitement. If you wait for them to go back to their office to place an order, you may have lost your chance. Plus it makes you look super professional! This form includes an easy-to-use template of the 22+ items that are needed on a Sales Order Form for buyers to place wholesale orders. Also included is a thorough Terms and Conditions form (that typically accompanies the Sales Form) and clarifies payment terms, payment methods, cancellation policies and so much more! (Customizable in Word)
- Line Sheet Template $15 -Line sheets are the industry tool that every designer needs when trying to sell their collection to a buyer. Line sheets need to be clear and easy to read so it is easy for a buyer to place an order. If your retailers or wholesalers have trouble reading them, or have to stop to ask a question, you are less likely to get the sale. And this is often your first impression with a buyer/stockist. They are assessing how professional you are, can they trust you, and will you deliver on time, sometimes solely based on your line sheet. So this must look GREAT in order to put them at ease! There are over 17 key crucial items of information that need to be displayed on your line sheet. Not sure what they are? No problem, we’ve made this process a lot less daunting with our fool-proof line sheet template! (Customizable in Excel).
- Cutting ticket + PO Contract/Terms Template $25 -Cutting Tickets and P.O Contracts are crucial tools to have when production time rolls around. A cutting ticket gives a detailed view of the total # of pieces per size and color way that you want to cut. It helps your factory know how many to make and keeps everyone on the same page as far as deadlines. A PO or Purchase Order, is a legal document that a buyer issues to a seller. You, as the buyer, are making an offer to purchase the services of the manufacturer who is manufacturing your items. A PO is also an accountability document for all parties. It can be used to check the merchandise when it arrives from the factory to be sure everything is correct. The PO Contract clearly outlines both the Terms & Conditions and occasionally the Non-Disclosure Agreement for your factory to adhere to during the production phase. A good PO also states what the repercussions will be for damaged samples and late delivery. This document can seriously help prevent headaches when factories try to raise production costs or refuse liability of damaged merchandise! (Customizable in Excel, all mathematical calculations built in)
- BOM (Bill of Materials) Template $10 -A BOM (a.k.a. Bill of Materials) helps keep the designer/production manager organized. Essentially it’s a detailed resource that lists each of the components or “ingredients” for each style on order. The BOM is very specific and must list all components so that nothing is left out. This template is what will be used to place orders for all fabrics, trims, notions, labels, etc. And keep in mind there will be different yields for each of your fabrics – self, combo, lining, etc. so it can start to get very confusing if you don’t have a detailed chart like this. Not only must it be specific to each style, but also for each color way in that style as the trims you need to order may be different for each one. In the beginning, this may not seem like such a big deal if you don’t have a lot of styles in the works. With this template, purchase orders and planning is made easy and you’ll be less likely to forget anything when it’s time for production, which will help to ensure you ship on time! (Customizable in Excel)
- Cost Sheet Template $25 (Includes blank & filled in ones) – Do you ever wish there was a handy tool that can help you easily figure out how much you need to charge in order to make a profit? Perhaps you want to know the exact formula you need to calculate your wholesale and retail prices? It’s so important throughout this entire design & development process to keep track of every cost for every style. But in order to keep track of all of these costs you will need to set up a cost sheet for each style.
One of the biggest mistakes I see with newbie designers is that they don’t know how to properly cost their line and then they’re out of business in 2 years. Don’t make this same mistake. Grab our fool-proof cost sheet template that has been tried and tested over the years! This template will help you easily track the costs and the profitability of each of your designs. And we’ve included both a blank template and a pre-filled template so you can see exactly how to fill it out. (Customizable in Excel with all mathematical calculations already built into the template! No thinking required LOL)
