Tech Packs are just as important as your pattern and prototype when it comes to development, and for approaching factories with your production order. It's also one of the more confusing items to pull together for many new designers and brands. I will be speaking at the DG Expo in Chicago next week, with Jess Crane, on this very topic.
How to Create a Tech Pack for Successful Production
Presented by: Xochil Herrera Scheer and Jess Crane
Designers use a tech pack to get a sample or product made with minimal errors. A tech pack gives your contractors an instructional guide for your product, and serves as a "visual contract" during production. This seminar will discuss the elements that go into creating a good tech pack, including information needed for working with domestic or international production.
