As we embark on our journey to bring your apparel vision to life, I want to take a moment to explain a crucial aspect of our manufacturing process: the Garment Tech Package. This package is not just a set of documents; it’s the blueprint of your product’s lifecycle, ensuring that every piece we produce meets your expectations in quality, design, and functionality.

What is a Tech Package?

A quick look at what is a tech pack?

A garment tech package, often referred to as a “spec pack”, contains all the necessary specifications and instructions needed to produce your apparel. It is a comprehensive guide that communicates your design vision and technical requirements to us, your manufacturers. This package is crucial for ensuring consistency, minimizing errors, and facilitating clear communication between us.

Key Components of a Tech Package

  • Technical Drawings or Flats: These are detailed, flat sketches of your garment from multiple views (front, back, and side). They include annotations for stitch types, trim details, and hardware specifications.
  • Bill of Materials (BOM): This lists all the materials required for production, such as fabrics, trims, labels, threads, and hardware. It includes details like color, quality, and supplier information.
  • Size and Fit Specifications: Detailed measurements for each size you intend to produce. This includes grading rules that explain how sizes differ from one another.
  • Construction Details: Specific instructions on how the garment should be assembled. This covers stitching, finishing techniques, and any special instructions that ensure the garment is made to last.
  • Colorways: If the garment comes in different colors, this section specifies the Pantone codes and other color specifications for accuracy.
  • Artwork and Print Details: For garments with prints or embroidery, detailed artwork specs are provided, including placement, dimensions, and colors.
  • Labeling and Packaging: Specifications for labels, tags, and packaging details, which include branding and care instructions.
  • Prototype Comments: Notes from previous samples that have been reviewed, with adjustments needed to perfect the design.

Why is a Tech Package Important?

A well-prepared tech package streamlines the production process. It minimizes back-and-forth communication, reduces production errors, and helps maintain quality control. For you, this means saving time and costs, ensuring that your product comes out exactly as envisioned, even before the first prototype is made.

How We Work with Your Tech Package

At our factory, your tech package is the first thing we review when we start on a new project. Our team of skilled technicians and designers will go through each detail, ensuring we fully understand your requirements. We might reach out to clarify certain aspects or suggest improvements based on our production expertise. Once everything is clear, we move into the sampling phase, keeping you updated every step of the way.

We value the trust you place in us to transform your creative ideas into tangible products. The tech package is a pivotal tool that aids us in achieving this goal with precision and efficiency.
