1.What is a garment tech pack?

A tech pack is also known as a spec sheet. I like to think of it as a contract between fashion designer and garment manufacturer. If you live in NYC, USA and are having your garments produced in Ho Chi Minh city Vietnam, then you will need to communicate your design ideas over a language and culture divide. All the details of your garment need to be communicated, understood, discussed and brought to life by a team of people from a different culture who speak a different language. Tech packs facilitate this process by putting all the design details on paper in numbers and images to prevent misunderstandings and easy know who was at fault when mistakes happen. Tech packs list details like size chart, care label instructions, art-work placement, fabric specifications, packing instructions etc. Here is an example of: What is a garment tech pack or spec sheet?

2.Why is it necessary to use a garment tech pack or spec sheet?

A good factory has a quick and error proof system to process a new inquiry and get the garment into production ASAP. Time is money. If the factory has to guess, make a sample, find out that their guess was wrong and then make another sample, the factory is losing time and money. Factories like to work with fashion designers who know exactly what they want and can communicate it clearly one time so that the factory’s team can get it right the first time. A well done tech pack shows us that the designer knows what they want and gives us confidence that there will not be any significant changes. Changes mean more time and more money; aka loss.

When a new customer comes to us and does not know what a tech pack is then we know their garment professional level. We know that we will have to teach, train and make many counter samples which will cost us time and money that the customer doesn’t want to pay for. This is why I always ask, “do you know what a garment tech pack or spec sheet is?”

What is a garment tech pack? A tech pack is an informative sheet that designers create to communicate with a manufacturer all the necessary components needed to construct a product. Typically designers will include measurements, materials, colors, trim, hardware, grading, labels, tags, etc. Any crucial aspect of your design needs to be described in your tech pack. The more detailed a tech pack is, the less room there is for error.
