SAMPLE MAKER AND PRODUCTION PLACEMENT
TECH PACK KICK-OFF CALL
Our founder will tap into her existing industry insider resource database to secure the best U.S. based factory for your brand. This is a crucial step in the sample development process that will save you months upon months of your precious time.
We will then provide you with a side-by-side comparison report of two (2) potential factory options for you to choose from who work with emerging fashion brands, specialize in your product category, and can produce both small batch and large scale production orders.
It will include all the pertinent information needed to make a proper decision, including pattern, muslin (if applicable), sample and production estimated costs, remote fit session cost, lead-times, minimums, and more. The report will also include our founder's recommendation.
Prior to the call, an agenda will be given to you that outlines the items that will be discussed. During this call, our Founder will explain how the tech pack development process works and what sections make up our tech packs.
Our Director of Technical Design will learn about the vision for your apparel brand, as well as each of the styles in your collection, and then she will discuss how to best execute them. This is an opportunity for her to get clarity on exactly how you want your styles to be executed before she kicks off the tech pack development process.
This is also a time for you to ask any questions you have. You can also request for sketched variations of different design elements that you are considering for any of your styles, (for example: sleeve, collar, or stitching options), so you can have a visual for how they will look, making it easier to decide which option to choose.
TECH PACK DEVELOPMENT
SAMPLE DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT
A "tech pack" or technical package is a set of carefully crafted documents that details all of the necessary components needed to construct and produce your garments -- the roadmap of your designs.
Our tech pack will include the following sections:
1) CAD color rendering using Pantone colors for solids and hand sketched detailing for patterns and/or fabric swatchesc, trim, and stitching details;
2) Black and white flat sketch of each style showing fabric;
3) Call out details showing an enlarged rendering of any specific details that need to be brought to the attention of the sample maker to ensure proper execution;
4) Fabric and trim desciptions, including vendor info;
5) Spec measurements for each of the styles in your collection.
We allow up to (3) three revisions per page, with unlimited access to our director of technical design who will be your direct contact. Once approved, we will provide you with a non-editable PDF copy of your tech pack delivered via email. Due to legal reasons, we cannot provide you with a copy that can be edited later in order to protect the authenticity of our work.
