How to Check Tech Packs for Customized Apparel


This guide provides detailed instructions on how to review tech packs for custom clothing items, using the example of a tech pack for "Not Medics Badminton" apparel.

Steps to Review a Tech Pack

1. Understand the Main Page

  • The main page typically includes the title of the product (e.g., qzip, fleece, puffer).
  • Material Reference: Check the material listed (e.g., fleece, cotton, sherpa) and ensure it's the desired one.

2. Material and Variations

  • Material Types: Different products can come in various materials.
  • Material Selection: For quarter zips, there are options like fleece, cotton, and sherpa. Confirm the specific material you want.

3. Customization Details

  • Customization Sections: Review areas like 'Custom 1' and 'Custom 2' for names, numbers, etc.
  • Placement: Ensure all customizations are correctly placed (e.g., "NP" on the front, "Treasurer" on the back).

4. Hem and Cuffs

  • These are usually standard (elastic for fleeces, ribbed for cotton). Specify if you have a preference.

5. Pocket Styles

  • Standard options are available (e.g., left and right pockets for fleece, none for cotton).

6. Colours and Swatches

  • Match the swatches with the desired colours.
  • Real-Life Photos: Ensure the colour shades match your expectations. Request more photos if needed.

7. Logo and Embroidery Details

  • Check the size and placement of logos.
  • Verify embroidery sizes and colors (white embroidery is standard).

8. Sizes and Custom Names

  • Review the sizes provided against your records.
  • Check the font style for custom names and ensure spelling accuracy.

9. Final Verification

  • Double-check all details for accuracy.
  • If unsure, contact customer service for clarifications.

10. Approval and Production

  • Once the tech pack is approved, production will proceed based on it.
  • Responsibility for accuracy shifts to the customer post-approval.


Reviewing a tech pack thoroughly is crucial to ensure the final product meets your expectations. Always double-check each detail and seek clarification when in doubt. If you have questions or need assistance, feel free to contact our team.
