A memo sample is an individual material sample used to confirm the designer’s or consumer’s initial material selection. Designers also use memo samples to present material recommendations to their clients.
Memo samples are usually the final selection tool for the surface material and typically become the informal “contract” specifying the material the end-consumer expects from their purchase.
Memo swatches are generally larger than catalog samples, such as swatch cards, stack books or swatch decks. The most common sizes for this type of sample are 8½” x 8½”, 13” x 13” and 17” x 17”.
At Leed we have a proven track of designing and producing a broad range of high quality memo samples, including ticketed memo samples, backprinted memo samples, labeled memo samples, and chain memo samples.
