WHAT IS A TECH PACK?
A tech pack, or technical package, is the blueprint for your product. All crucial aspects of your design need to be included in this document. The tech pack will illustrate your design from all angles, capturing the front, back, sides and inside of your product. Measurements of the overall product and specific features will need to be clearly noted. Colors and materials are also noted in the tech pack.
WHY DO I NEED ONE?
The purpose of a tech pack is to create clear communication between you and a manufacturer regarding your product. The more information and details you include, the better chance you have of the manufacturer understanding your vision and executing your sample correctly. More details means less room for error.
HOW DO I MAKE ONE?
You can create a tech pack by hand or by computer, though it is easier to make changes to a computer-made design. We recommend using Adobe Illustrator for 2D sketches. We have outlined a four-step process to create a production ready tech pack. Download our free guide, 4 Steps to the Perfect Tech Pack. You will learn the details of sketches and specifications, references, material and color information, and the final review process. We’ve also included a bonus tech pack template with the download.
