What is Strike-off?

What is strike-off in apparel sourcing in sample development stage?
The specimen or swatch submitted to buyer for print colors approval is known as print strike-off or simply strike-off. During sample development or prior to production printing, suppliers develop these strike-offs from a printer (printing house). For strike-off sample printing, actual production fabric and actual base color is used. Like lab dip approval process, supplier internally matches colors of print design in light box prior to submitting strike-offs.
