Pattern Maker Melbourne - Serving Experience Labels

Local development and production is the new black.

Is this something you are looking at doing? A little bit unsettled by what is happening on a global stage and how that impacts your next range, your margin or just simply your ability to supply your customers?

Sample Room is a specialist in development, having opened our doors in 2009 specifically to help labels develop their styles locally and ethically. Giving the designer much more control and regaining valuable time to focus on other value add tasks.

With a team of highly experienced pattern makers, cutters and sample machinists, Sample Room is highly adept at all elements of development, from pattern making, to sampling, to detailed specs or tech packs (if you still need them). Our focus has always been on very high quality output with the minimum of time, effort and expense for you.

Are you having difficulties with:

  • Getting samples from China
  • Communicating with your supplier
  • Can’t get production out of China
  • Can’t or don’t want to go there and solve problems or perform QC
  • Frustrated with lack of control over the situation
  • Stuck using the same factory when you really would like to change
  • Customers are looking for more Australian made
  • Need quicker turn-around times

Could you imagine if:

  • You could discuss your design with a pattern maker face to face to get your ideas across quickly and clearly without the need to create full graded specifications in advance
  • Have your designs Pattern made / Sampled / altered / graded / and graded specs created in under 10 weeks
  • Owning your patterns for flexibility and agility in where you manufacture- locally or overseas
  • Owning your patterns in DXF format for multiple pattern making systems with specs that match the pattern precisely – no more guessing
  • Having your styles manufactured by an Ethically Accredited manufacturer
  • Talking to someone in Melbourne in their workroom who will be making the pattern and the sample in house.

This is how we can help:

  • We can develop your product in our Collingwood studio in Melbourne.
  • Our Pattern makers and Sample Makers work 3 meters apart, so problems are solved immediately before you have seen the garment saving you time and running around
  • Reduce your sampling down to 2, because of the communication, convenience, and experience
  • No need to digitize the pattern in for grading as we are computer pattern makers
  • We can trace off your garment and create the pattern, so you have accuracy and consistency for your customer
  • High tech scanning equipment of patterns for quick accurate scanning
