55_bullet_red If I Order the Same Product (same design and same material) at Different Times, Will the Product be Identical from point of view printing colors, fabric softness, and finishing....etc

Since we are printing onto fabric not on paper, some factors will play dramatic roles in color fixation. Besides, some procedures must involve human work. Therefore, variations may occur even we print same design under constant system settings on same type of fabric. Below are some major reasons:

- material, including fabric and ink, may not come from the same batch.
- production condition may change, including steaming, temperature, and moisture, etc

If you want to have the close result for each orders, you have to meet our wholesale requirement as it will make samples with Color Matching for you to approve, which will become the reference for later production.
