As the titels says. We are niched as a high end (quality) custom shop and it would be very usesful for our clients to be able to actually see the brands they are choosing from within the designer.
This already exists in the products area so Deco knows how to do this. It just needs to be an option in the designers product selection area as well or change the designer from having its own seperate product listing.
Clients dont know style numbers, but most do know the brands they love and want to find.
My affiliate stores are mainly sports teams, so they have moms that have shirt Ideas but the coach is the one that is the admin for the store. Would be nice if there a way to use the designer for the moms to submit shirt ideas to the coach and then the coach decides which one he makes as decorated products available in the store.
A current work around I can think of is have the moms create accounts and save designs to their accounts and then can review them in business hub but this is confusing and not a clean solution.
Having the ability to organize the colors a product is available in would not only allow you to make the product page look better but would also improve the customers buying experience. The easier it is for customers to find and choose what they want, the more likely they are to buy.
Here's a comparison of the difference -
Deco's order for Hanes Beefy-T colors:
Custom Ink's order for Hanes Beefy-T colors:
It would be nice to click and drag the colors but even just adding the sort arrows like the sizing page would do the trick.
I feel like we should have the tools necessary to create the best possible user experience whether we use them or not and being able to easily and intuitively select a product color is a pretty standard function of any online store.
Let me know what you guys think.
PLEASE VOTE!!! Names and numbers shouldn't cost the same. Those should be 2 different processes with 2 different costs. Most people stock numbers and cut names. Losing money by charging the same price. PLEASE VOTE!!!
The business hub is awesome but our websites' designer functions are still not super great and are clunkier than others with less stock artwork avilable.
I don't have a design team on staff that I can afford to pay to sit and make templates all day. Inksoft provides like 15000 free stock designs or something. Look at what custom ink, uberprints, and others are doing. We need to simplify the designer view a bit by removing the clutter and make the buttons/links larger and more prominent and add a clipart library our customers can use.
Right now its templates only. I find that my customers usually want something fairly simple yet very specific and it would be awesome instead of having to make each and every design for them to just give them a library to choose from and they can pop in whatever text they want.
The best way to make a product is to completely put yourself into the end users shoes, so that would be DN's customers' customers. Once you do that, use the end product and see how intuitive it really is.
Would be nice if the online designer had a knockout feature. So for example if you layered text on top of an image there could be a knocked out border around the text.
Would be great to have some more detail / interaction around thread colours when customers upload their own logo into the designer, even if this was a drop down box asking the customer how many / which colours were in the design but ideally the system would check this and display it itsself.
Can we hide the print options that are not available for a type of design/garment. example, when a customer clicks TEAM NAME the only decoration option we'd like customers to use is screenprint for example. Why show the other options that can't even be used? Too much unnecessary information can confuse people and reduces sales and conversions. TIA
When viewing an image on the website before selecting a product, the list of products show up next to the image for you to select the product you want.
1) First feature is to allow you to establish a sort order in the first series of products (and remaining products when you click on view all customizable products).
2) second feature is to supress the product categories that do not have any customizable products in them. Perhaps a check box or feature in the product categories to "supress category from appearing in the designer" so for those who use the cart for both custom products and non-custom products, you dont have a bunch of blank categories listed in the designer.
Imbed an instructional help video in the designer that pops up and gives a quick tutorial on how to use the basic features of the designer. In addition to a complete overview of all the features, I would also suggest 2 or 3 different short tutorial videos imbedded in the section the user is interested in that pertains strictly to that section, rather than having to watch a long video and hoping it covers what they are trying to figure out.
It would improve the designer a great deal if customers are able to resize the embroidery text faster with a finger or a mouse without using the confusing plus and negative tool.
Along the same lines of being able to mass delete designs. If you forget to add a decoration process, or add a new process to your business, it's a pain to go through every design to add processes. I've got 200 designs to add processes to and reuploading/reorganizing them wouldn't be any faster.
Allows you to add a one time setup fee to a product. This fee is not per individual item, so if the customer purchase 10 of the item, they still pay just the setup fee once as if purchasing only one item. It's similar to the screen setup fee, except it's not per screen. Just the one fee reqardless of colors or the quantity purchased.
Another really great thing would text spacing, you can see this at www.uberprints.com very hany especially when arching the text.
A centre line gride line to line up your artwork would be a great addition, you can see at www.uberprints.com or at customink.com
Would be nice to be able to control what fields are displayed on this page. This would give the option of having the prices desplayed before the customer would have to click into each shirt or item to first see the price.
This would be the pagee to control juldendesigns.deco-apparel.com/designs/v...Design-2?d=456881618
I had started a topic here - https://www.deconetwork.com/forums/dn8-beta2/6865-drop-down-color-selection-menu-for-designer
It would be really helpful to have dropdown menus for the two separate colors like in this old Deconetwork designer (I don't really know what version this is other than the fact it's not longer available). Enabling this kind of a feature would make product setup a lot easier. I had to had select 56-60 different possible color combinations (based on our type of product) PER product entry. The menus would simplify this process and may be a little easier for the customer to interact with.
It would be beneficial to allow the customer or (the site admin) to pin the designer menu to where everything was visible at once. For instance, instead of having to click each section to expand the various options of that tab. Allow a button that keeps the full menu tabs expanded. Kind of like in Microsoft's office pin the ribbon ability.
regarding the customization section, since the "Edit team names" button is not highlighted enough and this can lead the customer to misunderstand it with the "Add team name" button, we suggest to create a new "Edit team name" button beside the pre-existent "Add team name" one.
If that's not possible due to space issue, the two functions could merge on a single "Add&Edit" button which leads to a choice between the two different paths.
since the customization of a product isn't a straightforward process, customers need to be able to see a visual representation of their ideas while going back & forth through them.
Therefore we suggest the implementation on the configurator of this two functionalities by the introduction of two new buttons: "Undo" and "Redo".
This could surely improve the editing customization process.
