What’s a “linesheet”?

Posted by Brice Salmon on

We were asked all along our meetings with shops for something called a “linesheet”. Wow, wait a sec… The first time we'd ever heard that, we thought it was a sort of form we had to fill in or something, but as soon as we came back home, we googled it and discovered - again - a brand new world.

Basically, a line sheet is a visual and concise list of your products which has to contain at least the following elements:

  • Who you are

  • Product names

  • Existing declinaisons for each product (sizes, colors...)

  • References / SKU

  • Prices (also called Recommended Retail Prices or “RRP”)

  • Shipping / Return / Minimum order / Payment policies

  • Your contact information

Now for the best part, here are some tips for you based on our experience:

  • Set a minimum order quantity for each product

  • Indicate clearly whether a particular product is a “best seller” or a “new product” (add a particular color, a ribbon… get wild!)

  • Be crystal clear with your legal information: VAT numbers and address must be verifiable.


Don’t forget that this document might be the only thing a retailer will ever see about you so let it shine and, most importantly, look like what you really are about.

We worked a lot to have a linesheet corresponding to our values: the photos, descriptions and layout are relevant to our designs and our tone. The most difficult part for us wasn’t to regroup everything in a single place nor to create the actual content, but rather to have the very best of what we built in the past 6 months explained briefly and sincerely on a couple of pages.
