What is Red Tag (Sealed) Sample?

Can you please briefly explain about Red Seal sample? ... asked by Shanthi Dsouza

A sample with a red tag is an identification of a sample that buyer had approved and sealed that particular sample for production. A sealed sample means approved garment construction, approved trims attached to the garment. Receiving a Red tag sample from buyer is the approval for production go-ahead to the factory.

Buyers attach coloured tags to approved samples and send back to the suppliers. A buyer uses different colour tags for the different sample type, like Green tag is used for Size set samples and Red Tag is used for PP samples (Pre-Production sample). Once attached these tags can not be removed easily from the sample garment.

Tag is attached to a sample (some buyers also include comment sheets) so that suppliers can not replace sealed sample or can not show any other garments as an approved sample. Tags are attached to sample to ensure that no unapproved sample is referred to in production.

Secondly, a Red Tag as shown in the above image helps merchandisers, production team and quality personnel to identify easily the correct sealed sample for production from other samples of the same style. If there is any confusion related to garment construction at the time of production, the production department just refers to the Red tag sealed sample.

At the time of quality inspection, buyer representative refers to the sealed sample and buyers comments on that sample. Shipment inspection is done based on the sealed sample.

Note: The colour coding definition for the tags may vary buyer to buyer.
