What is Strike off in Garments Industry?

The swatch/ specimen submitted to the buyer for print color approval is known as print strike-off or simply strike off.

During sample development or prior to production printing, suppliers develop these strikes off from the printing section.

For strike-off sample printing, the actual fabric and actual base color are used. 

Like the lab dip approval process, the supplier internally matches the color of the point design in the lightbox prior to submitting the strike off. 

The print design is printed on fabric in actual size.
