Interior Lining:

Logo Artwork:

The logo artwork needs to be vectorised and the font should be outlined. Include the name of the font to ensure that it is not inadvertently changed by the system. Specify the size, colour etc.

Artwork for the internal label, if any.


Confirm swatches, lining fabrics as well as hardware and colour for samples production.

Samples Process:

  • Shipping of samples.

Samples Lead Time:

5 days to 2 weeks, depends on complexity of design and the specifications. The lead time may be extended if there are additional custom details involved such as custom hardware, lining etc.
