What is an apparel tech pack?
A apparel tech pack is a multi-page document that illustrates, describes and lists all the technical details that a factory needs, in order to quote a price and make a garment sample.

What is the value of a tech pack?
Professional tech packers charge $500 to $2,000 to make a tech pack. It requires expert knowledge and 5 to 20 hours to put together.  Do it yourself and save money.

List of questions that need to be answered.
Basically, a tech pack is a list of questions you need to answer for the factory before they can quote you a price and make a sample.  In chapter three I list all 27 questions I believe should be answered in a tech pack.
