Bangladesh Factory Collapse Underpins Perils of Sourcing Direct Part three in a six-part series By Adriano Aldini, Imprint Canada

Industry marketing expert Mark L. Venit asked the question: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a name?â&#x20AC;? Well, if your company is anything like Manitoba-based Creative Print All, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a heck of a lot. Venit would be proud, as Creative Print Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name is a paradigm of what he stressed in his fourpart article series, Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a Name?, in which he outlined the fundamental criteria to consider when naming or renaming your company. (If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already, be sure you check out Venitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article series which starts in Imprint Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s September/October 2012 edition and runs through to the March/April 2013 issue.) The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name is an accurate and to-the-point description of what it has been doing day-in and day-out since Ross Davies started the business more than three decades ago. Back in the mid-1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Ross â&#x20AC;&#x201C; having worked in the sign industry for several decades prior - decided to start his own business out of his basement in Niverville, Manitoba, hand printing signs for local customers. After seven years, Ross moved the company out of his home and his oldest son Patrick came on board at the age of 18.

In the January/February 2013 issue of Imprint Canada, we kicked-off a six-part article series which looked at the topic of direct overseas sourcing. In part one of this series, we highlighted five perils of sourcing direct, with the top three being: Finding the Right Manufacturer; Program Execution; Ensuring Quality Control. Due to the recent garment factory collapse in Bangladesh, the spotlight has been firmly placed on the saftey of global apparel manufacturing, and we found it timely to revisit these perils.

GLOBAL (RE)ACTION As rescue efforts were brought to a close on May 13, 2013, the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh suffered more than 1,100 casualties. The country has approximately 3.6 million garment workers and is the third-largest exporter of clothes, behind China and Italy. In light of this most recent tragedy, more than 30 companies have signed the Accord on Fire and Building Safety, which is a first-of-its-kind, legally-binding contract that holds brands accountable for safety and labor conditions in the factories they employ in Bangladesh. <W]ZKQVO -QZMK\ ,WV\QV]ML WV 9IOM

IMPRINT CANADA May/June 2013 - Volume 20, Number 3

Follow us: twitter.com/imprint_canada

MAY/JUNE 2013 Some of the key findings that caught my attention were the following: • There are more than 12.5 million Generation Y's currently in Canada (more than 37% of our population). • Only 29% of currently employed Generation Y's view work meetings to decide on a course of action as very efficient  • 61% of employed Generation Y's don’t believe they need to physically be in an office with co-workers to be productive.

Real Time at the Same Time

• 35% of employed 18-29 year olds have started their own business on the side to supplement their income.

The Oxford Dictionary describes Generation Y as "the generation born in the 1980s and 1990s, comprised primarily of the children of baby boomers and typically perceived as increasingly familiar with digital and electronic technology." Over the past several months, it seems an increasing number of media outlets have attempted to shed light on the characteristics that define this particular demographic as their proliferation into the workplace continues to expand. One particular report that I found enlightening was published online by shift27.com; it provided me with much needed insight into Generation Y.

The study also revealed that among this demographic, Generation Y's tend to view success as something shared across an organization through flattened leadership. No matter their role, they want to provide input and even collaborate directly with the CEO if relevant. As a group, they are also more willing to trade high pay for fewer billable hours, flexible schedules and a better work-life balance. Based on of these findings, it appears evident that Generation Y will transform the present day workplace to better suit its needs and core beliefs. At the same time however, I wonder if all impacts on the workplace will be positive ones. While I try to remain optimistic that the Generation Y mindset will revolutionize the workplace for the better, my instincts tell me that the core values they reflect will result in even less real time communication and greater fragmentation TM of resources than exists today.

Industry News Gildan Activewear announces record results for second quarter Updates guidance for full fiscal year

Gildan Activewear Inc. (TSX:GIL)(NYSE:GIL)

announced record results for the second quarter of the 2013 fiscal year, which were in excess of the guidance range it had previously provided in spite of challenging market conditions and the impact of unseasonal weather conditions in both operating segments.

Second Quarter Results

Net earnings were $72.3 million or $0.59 per share (all figures U.S.) on a diluted basis for the second fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2013, compared with net earnings of $26.9 million or $0.22 per share in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Results for the second quarter of 2013 include restructuring and acquisition-related costs amounting to $0.4 million after tax. The growth in the Gildan's net earnings from the second quarter of 2012 was due to the benefit of significantly lower cotton costs together with higher unit sales volumes in both the Branded Apparel and Printwear operating segments, and a more favourable product-mix for Branded Apparel. This was partially offset by lower selling prices for Printwear, including the $0.04 per share impact of a distributor inventory devaluation discount in the quarter, higher manufacturing costs, the charge for the discontinuation of Anvil® product-lines, higher selling, general and administrative expenses and higher income taxes. Net sales in the second quarter amounted to $523.0 million, up 8.4 per cent from $482.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Sales for the Printwear segment amounted to $368.0 million, up 2.0 per cent from the second quarter of fiscal 2012, and sales for the Branded Apparel segment were $155.0 million, up 27.4 per cent from the second quarter of last year.

The slight increase in sales in the Printwear segment was due to approximately 4 per cent unit sales volume growth in the U.S., primarily due to the acquisition of Anvil®, and almost 20 per cent unit sales volume growth in international markets. The 27.4 per cent growth in sales for the Branded Apparel segment was due to the impact of the acquisition of Anvil® and increased sales of Gildan® branded activewear to retail customers, partially offset by slightly lower sales of socks compared to the second quarter of last year.

Year-To-Date Earnings

Net earnings in the first half of fiscal 2013 were $107.6 million or $0.88 per share on a diluted basis, compared to net loss of $19.2 million or $0.16 per share in the first six months of fiscal 2012.

Outlook

Net sales for fiscal 2013 are now projected to be slightly in excess of $2.15 billion. Net sales for Printwear are projected to be approximately $1.45 billion, and net sales for Branded Apparel are projected to be slightly in excess of $0.7 billion. Gildan now expects full year adjusted EPS of $2.65-$2.70, as the more favourable than projected second quarter results and projected increased supply chain and manufacturing efficiencies for the balance of the year are assumed to offset the negative impact of higher than previously projected cotton costs in the fourth quarter. Gildan believes that it is well positioned for continuing growth in sales and earnings, as it brings capacity on-stream to support its sales growth initiatives in both operating segments.

Some of the companies that signed the agreement include:Â H&M, PVH, Zara, Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Primark, Mango, Helly Hansen, G-Star Raw, Loblaws, and Benetton. "We recognize the commitment that these companies are making towards ending the cycle of factory disasters in Bangladesh," said IndustriALL General Secretary Jyrki Raina. IndustriALL, a global union representing 50 million workers in 140 countries in various manufacturing sectors, drafted the Accord along with UNI Global Union. "We call on all other global brands sourcing from Bangladesh to join us in making sure that every garment worker in Bangladesh can work in safety," added Raina. Other North American retailers, such as Wal-Mart, are discussing whether to forge their own Bangladesh safety agreement as an alternative. Wal-Mart announced it would conduct in-depth safety inspections at all 279 Bangladesh factories with which it works and publicly release the names and inspection information. Wal-Mart said it would also have Bureau Veritas provide fire safety training for every worker in every factory in Bangladesh that produces its goods. Bureau Veritas is a European testing and inspection company that, on behalf of Wal-Mart, assesses factories and trains workers in Bangladesh.

THE PERILS OF SOURCING DIRECT - REVISITED 1. Finding the right manufacturer As working conditions in manufacturing facilities overseas come under increased media and public scrutiny, finding the "right" manufacturer to produce your wares has never been more important - both from a critical position of safety, as well as from a PR standpoint. Suppliers in our industry have invested massive amounts of capital and resources to establish offshore manufacturing facilities and/or supply chain infrastructures that satisfy the ever-diversified needs of distributors. Distributors looking circumvent established supply channels in hopes of attaining larger profit margins will realize that one of their biggest challenges will be securing a safe and reliable manufacturer to partner with. The resources required to procure a safe, ideal partner are immense. With factory working conditions in the media's spotlight more than ever before, the qualifying factors for vetting a

Print on: Plastics Glass Metals Wood Rubber Leather

manufacturer's safety and ethical track record have arguably never been more critical. Questions like the ones listed below need to be answered in a clear, transparent manner: â&#x20AC;˘

Does the factory comply with global standards for human rights and safety in the workplace?

â&#x20AC;˘

Are environmental laws and safety regulations being adhered to?

â&#x20AC;˘

Is there a quality management structure in place?

â&#x20AC;˘

Does the manufacturer hold an ISO certification?

Properly vetting a factory requires plenty of time, money and research. The realities of business make it so that during this process, it can become dangerously convenient to curtail your search and simply partner with a manufacturer that "seems" right. This is big mistake which could lead to partnering with a manufacturer whose operations violate ethical and safety standards. From a PR standpoint, the ramifications for a company sourcing unethically-made goods are potentially devastating. "From a public relations perspective, the cost to companies is significantly more than it would have been for them if they would have manufactured or sourced those garments locally," said Mathew Wilson, Vice President of National Policy for Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters. As has been witnessed by the Rana Plaza factory collapse, even multinational corporations and retail giants are not impervious to serious problems with their offshore production partners.

2. Program Execution Translating conceptual ideas into finished products is not something which happens overnight; bridging the communication divide between your company and the offshore factory floor - in order to ensure all products meet specifications - takes time, money, patience and planning to get right. Even though many popular garment and promotional product categories have been knocked-off or reverse engineered by offshore manufacturers, there is no guarantee of adherence to original specifications on dimensions, materials, performance, or worker safety.

The only way to ensure adherence to any of these parameters is to develop a clear set of parameters and safety guidelines to which the imported products must be manufactured. The next step is to enforce these guidelines, which is where quality control comes into play.

3. Quality Control The economic realities of our consumer behaviour have illustrated that shoppers are more sensitive to price tags than product origins. While people will openly say they abhor the use of sweatshops and unethical labour standards, much of this goes out the window when most people actually go shopping. They often either forget these opinions or choose not to act on them if the price just isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t right. Experts have called this the â&#x20AC;&#x153;social respectabilityâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;social desirabilityâ&#x20AC;? bias. The lack of any real enforceable ethical and safety legislation in low cost manufacturing nations - coupled with the aforementioned reality of Westerner's ingrained consumer behaviour - has produced a vicious cycle in which low cost is king. For importers, what this means is that there is no guarantee that the manufacturer they've partnered with is actually producing the goods on the same factory floor that they carefully vetted. In order to squeeze out more profit, there have been instances where the offshore manufacturer moves production to lower cost facilities with unregulated and unsafe working conditions. To avoid tactics of this nature, a company-owned, quality control team physically in the offshore factories monitoring production will ensure working conditions, safety standards, and product specifications mandated are strictly adhered to. The team should be composed of non-factory employees who explicitly understand all facets of your quality control guidelines as well as the factoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s processes in order so they can communicate these in ongoing manner with offshore production managers and key factory personnel. For smaller-volume programs, the cost of placing a company-sponsored team offshore doesn't make much fiscal sense, and thus the onus of monitor production falls to a third party, or even the manufacturing partner themselves. Unfortunately, when things go wrong, or worse, when disaster strikes in a way that it did in Bangladesh, relying on offshore manufacturers or third-world governments to enact and enforce post-disaster legislation leaves far too much room for error and more innocent people potentially at risk. The newly signed Accord on Fire and Building Safety is a step in the right direction as it sets a global example for manufacturers being held accountable for safety practices, training, and labour conditions in the factories employed in Bangladesh. It's unfortunate however that it took a disaster of this magnitude to fast-track its creation. Whether or not similar accords of this nature will be enacted in other developing nations where production sourced from is another issue yet to be addressed. Details of the Accord on Fire and Building Safety can be viewed at www.laborrights.org.

A short year later, Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second son Glen joined the business, and the company expanded its services to include screen printing and apparel decoration with the purchase of its first four-head manual press. During this time, Patrick left the company for a couple of years to work for a Canadian screen printing supply company in order to further hone his skills and perfect the craft. Upon his return a couple of years later, Patrick armed with a whack of industry knowledge - helped expand the screen printing side of the business to the point where it became the majority of work they produced. (With the know-how he attained, Patrick, together with Glen and Ross, built their own custom drier!) As the apparel decorating side of the business continued to flourish, Creative Print All moved into a new facility in Steinbach, MB and decided it was time to incorporate inhouse embroidery to its list of services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that time we were contracting our embroidery business out to a company in Winnipeg,â&#x20AC;? explains Patrick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Between the driving back and forth and the money spent on the outsourcing, we figured we could do it better ourselves,â&#x20AC;? he added.

In the mid-2000â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Creative Print All expanded once again, this time incorporating promotional products into its growing list of offerings, while also adding a new large format printer to its full colour signage business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We noticed that our clients were having to buy a lot of different products from many different companies,â&#x20AC;? explained Glen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we decided it was in our best interest to create an environment where we could deliver the widest breadth of solutions to our customers.â&#x20AC;? In 2010, the company moved once again, this time into a gleaming new 5,000 square foot facility, complete with a showroom, 4,000 square feet of production space and a 2,500 square foot mezzanine. Today, Creative Print All employs 15 dedicated staff members and is equipped with 18 embroidery heads, several screen printing stations, a large format printer, and a heat transfer machine. The company creatively prints all business that comes through its doors, and â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thanks to three decades worth of quality work - has a built a long-standing reputation for providing complete graphic solutions among its more than 3,500 locally-based clients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the main things we do so well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in addition to having a great sales team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is that we produce all our work in house.

from the sign business, and the remaining 35 per cent is divided relatively equally between promotional products and screen printing. This wide range of services has benefited Creative Print All in more ways than simply being a one-stop complete graphics and promotional design shop; offering such a wide gamut of services has helped the company insulate itself from the economic downturn that hit the Canadian economy at the tail end of 2008. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our departments were affected by different industries during the recession,â&#x20AC;? says Patrick, who explains that the company was able to sustain moderate growth during this tumultuous period due to the very fact that their services are so diversified.

A True Family -Run Business Creative Print All is in every way a true family run business. Founding father Ross, now 87, is still involved with the business, handling bookkeeping duties and keeping his experienced eye on things. The relationship that the company enjoys with its team is excellent. With the majority of staff being long-time team members, they too are treated very much like family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had staff that has left for personal reasons who have ended up coming back to work for us,â&#x20AC;? noted Patrick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking to come back and work with us, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve treated them very well.â&#x20AC;?

Above and Beyond the Call of Duty Like most decorators and distributors in our industry, dealing with rush orders can be a challenge; it always seems that customers are asking for their decorated products â&#x20AC;&#x153;the next day.â&#x20AC;? Patrick explains that while this reality is a daily challenge for them, Creative Print All still works as efficiently as possible to get orders turned around and out the door. At times however, there arises a situation where a REAL rush order is required. In Creative Print Allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, this happened when one of their major accounts in the agriculture industry called them up in the middle of the week to bid on a job that required the rebranding trucks, office buildings and feed mills for a takeover the client had just finalized. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were informed that we got the contract on Friday and all the new signage had to be completed before Monday morning,â&#x20AC;? recalls Patrick. The logistical challenge was quite daunting to say the least. Not only was the signage that was required for the feed mills and buildings extremely large, it needed to be applied 75 feet in the air. Creative Print All worked tirelessly to produce the signage that same night and contracted four crews which they dispatched to different areas of the province to rebrand each of the clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trucks while the in-house team tackled the installation of signage for the feed mills and buildings. Nevertheless, the hard work ultimately paid off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was one of our greatest success to date,â&#x20AC;? noted Glen. This dedicated, hands-on approach has been the only way Creative Print All knows how to conduct its business. As Mark L. Venit would say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only fitting that their name says it all.â&#x20AC;?

A: When faced with a question like this, I have conflicting feelings. As a screen printer who has always been hands-on, I like to keep things "In - House" as much as possible. In the case of weather resistant waterproof vinyl stickers, however, I would choose to outsource the artwork. Companies like Stahls' specialize in this type of embellishment, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as simple as sending your artwork, choosing the size, colours, and quantity and they definitely do the rest. The most important thing is that the product you deliver to your customer will hold up under the conditions required while looking itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best. @)FWPcR^[^dabT_PaPcX^]b^UcfPaTf^d[Sh^d aTR^\\T]S.8RdaaT]c[hdbT?W^c^bW^_U^abT_PaPcX]V U^daR^[^da_a^RTbbY^Qb0]hbdVVTbcX^]bU^a^cWTa b^UcfPaTXbW^d[SQTdbX]V.

A: If your using PS, I would suggest trying Accu-Rip by Freehand Graphics. It comes with an "All Black" option that lets you turn your epson 1400 into a printing beast. If you are looking to switch, Digital Art Solutions has Smart Designer X4.5 which is an amazing Rip Software. @)8\cahX]Vc^_a^SdRTPaTU[TRcXeT_aX]c^]_^[h b_P]STgQ[PRZ[^]Vb[TTeTbWXacb8\dbX]VPfWXcT_^[h d]STaQPbTfXcWPbcaTcRWPSSXcXeTFWT]fT_aX]cXcXc [^^ZbVaTPcQdcfWT]fTaT\^eTXcUa^\cWT_[PcT]Xc aX__[Tb_dRZTabFWPcXP\S^X]Vfa^]V.

A: It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound like your doing anything wrong, except possibly using too much spray adhesive. Pulling and stretching your product off the platen will definitely create a rippled look. @)7^f\dRWbW^d[S8RWPaVTU^aUXgX]V\hR[XT]cb Pacf^aZP]SbT_PaPcX]VR^[^dab.

A: The important questions you need to ask yourself are as follows: â&#x20AC;˘ How long does it take you to separate your artwork? â&#x20AC;˘ What are you using to separate the extensions? â&#x20AC;˘ And most importantly, what is your time worth? I have always blended my artwork charges into my film charges. For example take the artwork supplied and charge your customer film at $12 - $15 for front left separations, and $20 for full front or back pieces of film. Also charging $20 per screen setup and you should have everything well covered.

painfully slow and kills production. Having the machine setup to run all day long is key to your success. Another way to speed up prep time is to have several jobs placed on one screen. The key is to look at upcoming jobs and determine which film will go where. For example almost every job will have a white plate. Make sure however, that when putting two different jobs on one screen that the colours match.

A: Employees need to be able to have " great hands " in this industry. Honestly, anyone can learn the process but some have the ability to pull a squeegee from day one. After your potential employee makes it past the resume stage, you should see what type of skills they possess on the press. No one wants to scrap garments, and lost product kills margins. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extremely important that you have a person who is interested in the process as well. Remember, it takes a certain type of person to print day-in / day-out.

A: Vector extensions are always your best bet. If your customer comes back in a few months looking to order more shirts but wants to add another location, vector based extensions are easily re-sized without losing any quality. @)FTUX]ScWPcP[^c^UcX\TVTcb[^bcX]cWTbRaTT] _aT_PaPcX^]bcPVTFWPccX\TbPeX]VcX_bRP]h^dVXeT P]TfQXT[^^ZX]Vc^b_TTSd_cda]Pa^d]ScX\T.

A: Add software such as Digital Art Solutions pre-packaged art. This will have you designing like a pro in no time and will speed up production while setting you apart from the competition. Also, always prep your screens at the end of the day. Waiting for a screen to dry can be

A: Make sure the temperature is at least 320 degrees and slow down your belt. Your belt speed will be determined by how long your dryer is. I have found a trick over the years is to add a gradient or transparency of 10 per cent to your white under base. It will give your fluorescent ink something to grab on to. Try it, it will work! @)8WPeTP '^UUbTcbRaTT]c^_[PcT]4eTahcX\T 8b_aPhPSWTbXeT[^PSPbWXac^]cWT_[PcT]P]S_aX]c cWTbWXaccWTbWXacbcXRZbc^cWTbRaTT]PUcTacWTUXabc WXc0\XdbX]Vc^^\dRWX]Z.

A: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very possible; a heavy deposit can definitely do this. Make sure you make a stroke that will push all the ink through your screen. Another little tip would be to push down on the screen with your squeegee, after you have made your stroke (not on the image) while trying to lift the upper corner of the screen simultaneously. This will allow to ink and shirt to separate.
