How to Get Started with Marker-Making Order: 

When initiating a marker-making order, it's essential to have a thorough understanding of the specific requirements and considerations. The following steps will facilitate a smooth and efficient process:

Customer Order Size Breakdown

  • Analyze the customer's order to determine the required size breakdown for each garment or style. Identify the quantity of each size needed to fulfill the customer's order, taking into account variations in demand for different sizes.

Cutting Ticket Order for Marker Making

Style T-shirt: S/SLV 0002
Color Style #
Red 20011
Green 30012
Yellow 40013

10 20 25 20 20 10 85
7 14 28 28 28 14 91

In this form table, the left column lists the sizes, and the top row lists the colors and their corresponding style numbers. The body of the table contains the quantities for each color and size combination. The "Total Garments" row summarizes the total quantity for each size, and the overall "Total" provides the grand total of garments to be cut.

This format provides a clear and organized overview of the cutting ticket order for marker making.

Fabric Information

  • Provide details about the fabric to be used, including the fabric width, type of fabric (e.g., knit, woven), and any specific considerations related to the fabric's characteristics, such as: Whether the fabric has a one-way print, nap, or printed fabric with no specific direction, which can impact the orientation of pattern pieces during marker making.

Pattern Pieces Layout

  • Ensure a clear understanding of how pattern pieces should be laid out in the marker, considering marker direction and fabric utilization.

Marker Layout Methods

One-Way Marker: Suitable for fabrics with a clear directional print or nap.
Two-Way Marker: Allows pattern pieces to be placed in two different directions, suitable for non-directional fabrics or when optimizing fabric usage.
Single Size Markers: Dedicated to a single size, ideal for optimizing the layout for a specific size requirement.
Separated Sizes: Involves creating separate markers for each size, allowing tailored optimization of fabric usage.
Mixed Sizes: Combines multiple sizes within a single marker, offering production flexibility but requiring careful planning for fabric utilization.

By following these steps and having a clear understanding of the customer's order, pattern pieces layout, fabric information, and marker layout methods, you can effectively initiate a marker-making order and ensure that the marker aligns with the specific production requirements.

How to Calculate The Total Sizes That Need To Be Marked On a Marker

Formula Explanation: The formula Total Sizes = (Number of Sizes) x (Number of Fabrics) signifies that to obtain the total sizes needed to be marked on a marker, the number of sizes is multiplied by the number of fabrics. This multiplication reflects the need to account for each size across all the different fabric types on which it needs to be marked.

Example Representation:

Number of Sizes Number of Fabrics Total Sizes Needed to be Marked
4 4 16

In the given example, where there are 4 sizes and 4 fabrics (SELF, LINING, FUSING, CONTRAST), the calculation is performed as follows: Total Sizes = 4 sizes x 4 fabrics = 16 sizes in total to be marked.

This representation demonstrates the application of the formula in determining the total sizes needed to be marked on a marker across different fabric types, aiding in efficient marker planning and layout.

Understanding Marker Making and Size Ratios

In the apparel industry, marker making is the process of creating a layout of pattern pieces on a large sheet of fabric to minimize waste and optimize fabric usage during cutting. Size ratios play a crucial role in marker making as they determine the quantity of each garment size that needs to be included in the marker.

Role of Size Ratios in Marker Making

Size ratios, such as small, medium, and large, are used to determine how many garments of each size need to be included in the marker. These ratios are based on the demand for different sizes of the garment. For example, if a particular style of clothing is sold in a ratio of 2 small, 3 medium, and 2 large, the marker needs to accommodate this distribution of sizes.

Here's a simple representation of marker ratios in tabular form:

Size Ratio
Small 2
Medium 3
Large 2

In this example, the marker would need to be designed to accommodate 2 small, 3 medium, and 2 large garments.

The Concept of Marker Making with Double Sizes

A common practice in marker making is to include double sizes in the marker. This means that instead of having separate markers for each size, the marker contains combined sizes, such as small-medium and medium-large. For example, a marker might include 2 small, 3 medium, and 2 large sizes in the same marker.

Advantages of Including Double Sizes

By including double sizes in the marker, designers and manufacturers can achieve several benefits:

  1. Reduced Fabric Plys: When double sizes are included in the marker, the cutter only needs to spread half the amount of fabric plys for those combined sizes. This reduces the time and effort required for spreading the fabric, leading to increased efficiency in the cutting process.

  2. Fabric Saving: Doubling sizes in the marker helps to save fabric by optimizing the layout. Since the marker accommodates combined sizes, it allows for better utilization of the fabric, minimizing wastage and maximizing the use of available material.

  3. Cost Efficiency: By optimizing fabric usage, including double sizes in the marker contributes to cost efficiency in production. It helps to minimize material wastage, ultimately reducing the overall production costs.

  4. Streamlined Production: Including double sizes streamlines the cutting process by reducing the number of markers needed. This simplifies the production process and helps in maintaining a more organized workflow.
