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!
