Jeff - Fantastic class, and kudos to you, your staff, and Staples for 18 years of continuous creative flow and success. Anybody interested in getting a brand off the ground and the nitty gritty details of t-shirt design and manufacturing must watch this course. Jeff - quick question - the 9 pages of spec sheets you talked about in video 9 (T-Shirt Manufacturing), did you create and refine yours over the years or did you leverage pre-existing spec sheets used by the textile houses? Can you share generic copies of the forms for use in our t-shirt design? Thanks.
