What does this word mean?

  • Average Lead Time

    Creating a custom fabric requires between 5-20 stages of processing. When there are no issues encountered between pre-processing, printing, dyeing, and post-processing, production can be completed according to the average lead time. In those cases where unexpected challenges occur, we may need to modify and rework an order to produce a superior outcome. Accordingly, the production lead time can take between 5-10 days over the average lead t ime. Information on discounts related to late deliveries can be found under the “Terms & Conditions,” when you place your order.

  • Fiber Content

    The fiber content of our fabrics are classified according to the raw materials they contain.

    • “Natural fiber” refers to natural materials, such as cotton and linen.
    • “Regenerated fiber” refers to material that is made through pulp regeneration, such as rayon.
    • “Synthetic fiber” refers to artificially synthesized material, such as polyester.

    The minimum order quantity and lead time differ depending on the characteristics of each fiber content, because they employ various dyes, dyeing, and printing methods.

  • MOQ

    In some cases, customers must place a minimum order quantity for our team to produce a custom fabric. For example, in screen printing we produce screens that transmit dyes for each color, and dyeing involves combining dye with fabric in a large dyeing machine for a prolonged period of time. Since the fixed costs associated with these processes is very high, we set a MOQ at a reasonable price.

  • Price

    Since we are capable of printing large quantities of custom-made fabrics in a batch, Haerae offers discounts by quantity. Alternatively, where there are not many fixed costs associated with the design and color of digital and sublimation printing, prices are set according to the total order quantity per each base fabric.

  • Processing

    Haerae uses a variety of processing methods to create custom fabric, depending on the purpose and function. While there is no minimum order quantity required for cotton, linen, or rayon digital printing, the price per yard (even of large quantities) does not receive a significant discount. The main advantage of using these materials is that we can offer unlimited colors and no restrictions on the number of repeat orders . Sublimation printing – which is used for printing polyester fabrics – has the same features. Note, screen printing comes with several disadvantages, including a high minimum order quantity, limited color use, a long production period, and the fact that the pattern must be repeated with only a prime number of 24 inches. However, when customers place large orders, we can achieve a high quality product for a low price. Dyeing has the advantage of one color being applied repeatedly, but it has the disadvantage of requiring a minimum order quantity and a long production lead time.

  • Weight (gsm)

    Since fabric width differs, “gsm” does not refer to weight per yard but rather weight per square meter. The formula for calculating the weight per yard is: Fabric width (cm) x 1 yard (91.44cm) / 10,000 gsm. Typically, heavy fabrics are strong and stiff, while light fabrics are relatively soft and flexible. However, the strength and stiffness is not proportional to the weight; they vary according to the raw materials and composition.

  • Width (inch)

    Fabric width is divided into actual width and available width. The edges contain small holes so that the fabric can be fixed with pins during processing. Where fabric contains an unusable portion, fabric that is said to be 58 inches generally has a usable width of 57 inches. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you consider that the available width of your fabric will be approximately 1-2 inches less than the actual width.
