How To:

Start a Private Label Clothing Line

Welcome to the Ink Monstr Adventure Book of Apparel Creation!

So, you want to create a private label clothing line. You’re ready to bring your designs to life and take them to the streets – awesome! There are a few different ways to move forward depending on what you have ready.  No two projects are alike, therefore there are many variations on how we can begin working together. A comprehensive scope of work needs to be established to bring your line from concept to custom fabric.

 

Design

Design

First, you need to decide on your designs. Our talented team of designers is here to bring your ideas to life, or you can use your own original art. There are no color limitations or additional costs for vibrant designs. All digital designs must be in CMYK and 300dpi at the full scale of the largest apparel item.

Pattern

Pattern

If you are not certain about sizing for our patterns, we’re happy to help out with general dimensions based on your items of choice. We do not share our in-house digital patterns for clients to layout artwork; creating our patterns was a huge investment and more than a year in the making. 

Production

Production

Allow us to bring your creations to life. Our in-house team can sew each item to ensure the perfect fit for your customers. We take pride in our talents, and work hard to make sure colors, design and fit are exactly as you envisioned them. 

Review the tracks below and decided which is best for your project. Once you’ve chosen your track and have your files ready, contact us here.

If you already know what you need, check out our garment options to see if we can put you on the fast track for private label clothing creation.

Option A - The Fast Track: I like Ink Monstr's patterns and want to use them to create my clothing.

  •  Great! We begin by laying out your designs and setting your apparel up for print. You will collaborate with our designers to ensure perfection for your pieces.

    Don’t forget, your file types must be: 

    • CMYK Color profile
    • 300dpi at full scale 
  • We always suggest making a prototype before going to full production. This is your chance to ensure the project fits your expectations. We test the fit of the garment, the accuracy of the colors and the placement of the graphics. 

  • Go to full production! Your files print exactly where you want them on the patterns and its time to create your first run!

  • All the leg work is already done, so when it comes time for a reorder you say when and how many!

    Congratulations, you are now the proud creator of your own apparel and we can’t wait to collaborate with you on your next garment. 

Option B - The Shorter Track: I have my own patterns established.

  • For us to be able to print your designs, they need to be in a digital vector or TIF format. You can provide us the patterns with your designs already laid out on them, or we can work with you to place your design on your pattern pieces. This involves making sure your pattern types are compatible with our software and that your designs are compatible with our printing process. Your design file types must be: 

    • CMYK Color Format
    • 300DPI at full scale
  • We always suggest making a prototype before going to full production.This is your chance to ensure the project fits your expectations. We test the fit of the garment, the accuracy of the colors and the placement of the graphics. 

  • Your prototype was perfect, so let’s get your gear out to the masses! 

  • All the leg work for your garment is already done and you’re selling through your first batch. When you are ready to reorder, let us know when and how many  so we can restock!
