It all begins with a simple thought: "We can make ANYTHING heated." The world of heated apparel has grown significantly in recent years, and our brand has been at the forefront of this industry for over a decade. In this post, we'll walk you through the process of developing a new heated clothing item, like our popular ActionHeat 5V Heated Slipper Socks.
Step 1: Developing a Heated Clothing Idea
Before we jump into the heated clothing creation process, we first need to consider the heating system, battery, and price point for our new product. With our extensive experience in the heated apparel market, we can usually make these decisions within an hour.
Step 2: Designing the Heated Apparel Product
Once we have a clear vision of the price and quality balance, we work backward to determine the safest and most efficient way to achieve that goal. Keeping our customers in mind, we strive to create heated apparel that offers the perfect blend of affordability and performance.
Step 3: Creating a Spec/Tech Pack for Heated Clothing
A spec is a crucial first step in conveying our requirements to the factories. We provide them with detailed information, including the wattage of the heating system. A tech pack is created to visualize the design.
Step 4: Crafting a Heated Apparel Sample
The initial sample focuses on the heating system. Once we receive it, we make decisions about colors, additional features, and trims for the heated clothing item, such as our heated socks.
Step 5: Full Team Review of Heated Apparel
Rigorous testing is conducted by our factories, a third party, and our team. Safety is our top priority, so we collaborate to review everything from materials to heating performance and market needs. During this stage, we usually receive a second, more refined sample.
Step 6: Launching the Heated Clothing Product
With the final heated apparel sample in hand, we perform a triple-check for safety and then say, "Let's Go!" At this point, our team works on a 14-step process to prepare the heated clothing item for digital launch, including SKU/UPC setup, imagery, retailer setup, and description building.
Step 7: Heated Apparel Hits the Market
Finally, our heated clothing product is ready for launch! The entire process can take anywhere from 2 to 6 months, depending on the item. Check out the final results of our ActionHeat 5V Heated Slipper Socks online and buy yours now!
