Creating a fabric swatch book makes your life easier. If you will sell fabric to customers, you will make their buying process more simple. There is no need to rummage through fabric. It will all be in one place. You can make fabric swatch books that can be given to clients. This makes the buying process easier for them. A swatch book also allows you to log which fabrics have been prewashed.
Making a fabric swatch book can be an easy process. You can simply gather small pieces of the fabrics you use or sell to clients on a regular basis and store them in one binder. Or you can work with a professional to have a swatch book made of the fabrics you regularly sell.
It is important to include basic information about each type of fabric in the swatch book. For example, you will want to include the type of fabric it is. It may be tweed, double gauze, taffeta, denim, poplin, or other types of fabric. You want to include the name of the design and the name of the designer. Include the fabric content. For example, it may be 100 percent cotton. Also, include care instructions. Make sure the weight of the fabric, the price of the fabric, and information about it being prewashed are included as well.
