Have you ever wanted to create something with a manufacturer but aren't sure how? The place to begin is by making a tech pack. In this class I will teach you step-by-step how to take your idea and turn it into a tangible product by making a tech pack.

Instructor Message

If you have a product you want to make your own, but don't want to make it yourself, this class is for you!

This class will teach you how to take your idea and turn it into a tangible product through writing a tech pack. A tech pack is a set of instructions you send to a manufacturer in order to get your product made. With a well written tech pack you will reduce sampling time and cost. But most importantly you will end up with a product you are proud to call your own. 

As the sole designer at Freshly Picked, I have made countless tech packs for our product. Making tech packs is now a huge part of my job. I have asked the questions, I have done the research, and now you don't have to!

While a tech pack may sound boring, I assure you there is nothing more exciting than seeing your designs in tangible form. This is what a tech pack is for! In this class, I’ll take you through the tech pack process step-by-step together. After this class you will know more about the manufacturing and production process, and you will know what you need to get your own manufacturing going.
