What are the latest hacks To Rock Your Technical Packs in 2021?

Create multiple cards instead of restricting everything to one card.

What are the benefits of creating multiple cards instead of bundling all the information on one card?

a. Up to 75% reduction in data entry with the help of technical pack

By creating separate maps for each component, you can reuse those maps later in other technical packs. That way, you’re not doing the same task over and over again.

b. Faster product development through production

Assign expiration dates and approval status to different cards. This way you can monitor the approved status and track deadlines for each one.

c. Keep all information organized through technical pack

If you have separate tabs for each component, it becomes easy to find information and assign members to separate tabs.

Share technical packs with factories against sending one PDF

Technical packs are similar to contracts in that they are a basic tool that designers, pattern makers, factories, and everyone in the supply chain can work with. For this reason, sharing a tech pack with your factories in G Studio is more efficient than sending PDFs:

a. Use the factory as a resource

Fashion designers or technical pack designers often forget that manufacturers are more experienced at making garments. They can be your full potential and your mentor.

b. Be more productive

Stop the pain of converting technical packs to PDF, downloading them, saving them to folders, then sending, sending, and replying to individual emails, and fixing technical packs over and over again…

c. Simplify working with factories

We allow factories to view all of their technical packs in one place and comment on individual cards with immediate explanation, share images and files with you (e.g. Illustration files, sample files, or even commands, etc.).

Besides, they can see larger images on tech packs instead of the fine print on paper. You can also print the latest version if needed.

Use of annotations in the technical pack

Annotations are the quickest way to explain your images and designs when used properly. Too many notes cover the image and obscure the tech pack.

We recommend no more than 10 notes per photo. You can also drag to create a line in white space so that it does not overlap with your image.

Use the list view for parts lists and measurement point

List viewing is a great feature that will make your job ten times easier. It allows you to fill those lists or parts lists and parts lists or measurement points much faster and still benefit from the visual map display.

Existing cards are shown as rows in the table. A new row can be created by entering the size/subject name below. The extra line generates a new map in map view mode.

Add maps and measurement templates to Favorites

Did you know that 65% of the information on your tech packs is reusable?

Here are the top 5:
  • Measurement diagrams
  • Care labels
  • Sewing patterns
  • Fabrics
  • Keys

Save your most used cards in “My Favorites” and drag them to your tech packs as needed.

Save the previous versions for backup

The technical packs are constantly reviewed and updated until the beginning of production. It is a dangerous activity if your factory is using an older version at the latest when you launch it.

Organization of communication

Think about all the emails and files you exchanged with your colleagues, moderators, and factories before you reached the final project and how much information was lost in the frenzy?

Bonus Hack- Deadlines and status allowed

Make sure you approve all components for your projects before buying them in the factory in bulk for production. The good news is that we can keep track of all of these! Simply assign expiration dates and we will automatically send notifications when the expiration date is approaching.
