Frequently Asked Questions
What is a tech pack?
A tech pack is an information sheet that designers create to communicate with a manufacturer all the necessary components needed to construct a garment. Typically designers will include measurements, materials, Pantone colours, trim, hardware, grading, labels, tags, etc.
How much does a tech pack cost?
I charge £150 per tech pack but this depends on the complexity of the design. The simpler the design, the lower the cost. Multiple designs can be discounted, I’m happy to discuss your requirements.
How long does it take to complete a design and tech pack?
This depends on how much work I have at the time and how big your project is. With a new client, I like to allow a couple of days to complete the first tech pack to ensure all information is in order.
Have you worked with sustainable fabrics?
I have in my recent work and it’s something that the fashion industry is waking up to, of course the more sustainable your design the better. Options to consider are pigments from plants for dying instead of toxic chemicals and whether there is a recyclable fabric option for you to create an eco-friendly garment.
What is the payment process?
What information do you require to get started?
As much as you can provide, so any website links, inspiration imagery, some copy about your brand and who your customer is. If you’re unsure, we can perhaps arrange a skype/ phone call to assess your requirements.
