gET OUT OF the idea stage and START MAKING!

Combining written instructions, measurements and visual information - such as technical drawings (aka flats or specs), pictures and fabric swatches - to make sure your design is clearly understood, a Tech Pack is probably the first thing any Private Label apparel manufacturer will ask before giving you a quote or any information regarding Minimum Order Quantities (MOQ).

Which makes sense: how can anyone estimate production costs not knowing what they are going to produce?

Or worse, imagine working around a tight budget based on a very rough estimate, of an "estimated design", and finding out later your costs are going to be much higher, once the manufacturer realizes your design is more complicated than what was originally disclosed...there goes all your planning before you even had a sample, and this is where most Fashion startups get stuck.

Your custom design down to the last detail - you can even ask me to customise the layout and colours to go with your branding.

Pricing & Other details:

Different brands will have different requirements for their tech packs, depending on their product and the factories they work with. My service is designed to help startups:

  • get out of that stubborn phase where you're all ideas and zero execution;

  • get involved in the Product Development process;

  • get quotes and start sampling with a One-stop service manufacturer aka Fully Factored or Fully vertical private label manufacturer, who will take care of sourcing materials, making patterns, cutting, sewing, printing...

  • look for a Pattern cutter, sample maker and/or a local sewing shop - if you're making small productions, building your own team is the best way to start!

Basic Tech Packs start at €150.

That's Cover page, Construction details and Measurements, ready to send to the manufacturer of your choice.

Most original designs will need a few (or a lot) more pages than that, each costing €50.

Don't wait to get started! Clarity is one click away:

If you’re producing with a CMT (Cut, Make & Trim) manufacturer, they will ask you to already send a tested and tried sample along with your Tech Pack: consider hiring my Cutting & Making service, if you're working with tailoring or more constructed designs (i.e. no swimwear, Active wear or Streetwear - for those I can recommend great manufacturers :D)
