Pattern Digitising is often the first step into digitisation. It is a small but important step in production. Inaccuracies on the digitised pattern shape can generate disastrous results on the final product. Having a precise and reliable digitizing system is crucial for the production and manufacturing process of a product. Markit Apparel uses both state of patented camera digitising and manual digitising table.


Our state of the art computer equipment, combined with the vast knowledge of our grading enables us to turn graded patterns quickly and accurately. Patterns are graded to customer specified requirements, or work with you to establish your own grade rules based on an analysis of your sample size and your specific target market. A graded nest with all pieces will be provided to you for your approval. Once approved, the pattern is ready for marking, or may be sent via the internet to your overseas contractor.
