1. Think ahead of the seasons
Planning ahead is essential to ensure that your product comes out looking like you imagined. We recommend scheduling the tech pack creation at least 4 weeks in advance so our designers have enough time for finishing touches and modifications based on any changes needed during this process.
2. Have a clear idea of what you want for your product
Before you create your Tech Pack, it's important to have some of the basic measurements of the design and ideas prepared. A tech pack consult is an excellent way to organize the flood of ideas you have in your head. The consultation also serves to give you direction, and answer all your design questions. It also helps our team to begin to understand what concepts need correcting in order create a successful product!
3. Have a measuring tape in hands

You should always review all measurements of your product with a measuring tape and compare it to what you feel you would expect from the usage of this particular item.
