Why do I need a line sheet?

It’s really important to have a catalog that looks professional and reflects your brand. A wholesale catalog is organized in 3 different parts:
We already explained in details in our previous tutorials how to create effective wholesale contract templates and order forms templates that you can reuse for all of your customers. Now it’s time to focus on the most important part of your catalog : the line sheet. But creating a line sheet that is both beautiful and exhaustive can take a huge amount of time or be very expensive if you decide to hire a professional designer or a marketing agency.

What is a line sheet?
A line sheet is a technical document that gives wholesale and business clients a preview of your products. It also contains lot of information about your products such as prices, materials, minimum/maximum order quantities, your sales terms, and your contact information. Since the main goal of this document is to provide all the necessary information to your customers so that they can order your products, you shouldn’t set your focus on products’ images. You don’t want to distract your customers with incredible pictures of models wearing or using your products, so keep it clean and simple but they still need to look professional and consistent. Our advice for you is to use the same background for all of your photos. A plain and simple white background is the best since it removes all types of distraction. Always keep in mind that information is key on a line sheet. Here is the essential information that you should make available on your line sheet for each product:
- Wholesale price
- MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price).
- Variations available and their corresponding price
Depending on the type of products you are selling you may have to add additional information especially for variants. Let’s say that you are creating a t-shirt line sheet template. You will probably need to add the different sizes available (S, M, L, …) and materials used to create the shirt (Cotton, …). But if you were selling bags for example, you would need to display the different dimensions of the bag, it’s weight... As stated earlier information is the most important part of your line sheet so you shouldn’t set the focus on images, but they still need to look professional, clean and most importantly, they need to be consistent. Our advice for you is to take pictures of your products on a white background, so that they all look the same. You should also put too many products on each page (9 max.) of your line sheet.
