Clothing Tech Pack

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.

Does my project need a tech pack?

Tech packs can eliminate production issues and transcend languages whilst giving you the flexibility to produce globally. As a detailed document, it's a reference tool to compare your samples against and ensures your bulk order (aside from any slight amendments previously agreed) is as per your tech pack, so you're in control. Without it, the manufacturer can make changes you may not have complied with, leaving you with a less than satisfactory product.
