Convert Fonts to Curves

I would like to see the orders that come through with text automatically converted to curves, so you don't have to worry about having the correct font installed


Thumbnail Images for decorated products

It would be great to use another image that is already stored with the product in a thumbnail view that is displayed on the website for decorated products.  For example I want the back of the shirt to be the view that is seen on the homepage thumbnail view.   We shouldn't have to upload the image again if it is already asociated with the product, but just a different aspect (i.e. decoration image of back or sleeve etc).  

Additionally, if you do upload a new image into the decorated product it doesn't seem to maintain the aspect ration and get's stretch/distorted using this method.  If I could zoom or adjust the aspect of this image that would be great.

Patterns in color swatches

Hi All !! PLEASE PLEASE vote for this one:

We need ability to load up different PATTERNS in the color swatches  in online designer:  So that customers can create, for example, zebra print TEAM NAME AND NUMBER  or polka dot or flower pattern TEXT. etc..

 Having the ability to "fill" text/ image color with a pattern would make the designer more versatile and if anything  bring in more business, especially if your customers are teams/ schools, etc..

Thanks!! thumbs up


You can put the patterns on their own palette and category and place it  in the same little window where the color swatch and color slider are currently.


Allow Multiple Designs on Pre-Decorated Products

When creating a pre-decorated product within an affiliate store that has three shirt colors, but each color of shirt has a slight design variation because of the shirt color. Instead of having to create three different products, when the customer clicks on a different shirt color the design associated to the shirt color will show up.

Adding Work Orders

Concept: in biz hub, being able to create a "work order", ie something done internally in your shop that never goes to purchase ordering or never goes to shipping.

Work flow would be like this: Shop manager creates work order "Clean 10 screens" or "Run Printhead Diagnostics/Maintenance".  The lay out could look just like the regular layout of the order screen. Then the work order gets assigned to employee X.That person comes in, clicks on the production tab, then completes that task.

Larger Printable Design View

In business hub, it would be nice to be able to see a larger/printable Design View on the garment/product without downloading the source files that don't show how the customer sees it anyways. Even the work sheet images are way to small.


Dashboard Edits / Customization

I think it would be great if we could bring the affiliate sites and customer areas into brand. Currently they display the "deco blue" for buttons, tabs, links, etc and I think it would be great to see custom options for this section within deco. Maybe also allow "Dashboard" banners so we could display them within affilaite and customer accoiunts, right on the dashboard for deals, sales, promotions, etc... In a way maybe have a few themes or skins we could edit and work off of like the websstores do. 

Also, it would be great to override the support links displayed within the affiliate / customer areas. I have no problem displaying "powered by deco" but I have a great article base and chat widget I use and it would be gret to allow our customers to have direct support to us since we do handkle the support. If not mistaken deconetowrk will not support our customers or affilaites so why offer them links to support? It's confusing and I hope this can haoppen soon!!

If anyone has other ideas i would love to hear them and hopefully we can rally and get this accepted :)


Scaled Down Portal - Commission by Product

We are a dye sub custom cut and sew shop that is the leader in providing custom team apparel for the BMX racing community.

Back in 2009 when Deco was Pikiware they were literally days away from releasing the beta for a portal concept.  We wee so exicted to start testing it then along came Wilcom and it tanked never to be resurrected.  The issue we have experienced over 6 years is most small businesses cannot create or manage an affiliate stores.  The vast majority fail because of this. For us creating and managing individual stores in house for affiliates is too expensive and time consuming.  Our idea is a scaled down portal to eliminate having to create individual affiliate stores.  Instead we would like to create a single BMX "Mall" (Deco Store) where we could have customers broke into catagories such as BMX Track jerseys, BMX Store jerseys, BMX Manufacturers jerseys, etc.  Major chains and auto dealers learned decades ago that by having multiple "stores" in one location will provide more over all sales then the same number of individually located "stores".  This same concept would work for any industry you work in whether it be schools, churches, etc.

The only thing needed to accomplish this would be the ability to assign commissions to an individual product. 

For us we look at software tools two ways.  First and most important, increase sales/revenue.  Second, to automate processing orders to reduce cost.  For us, being able to offer our customers a simple way to increase their business without having to learn a tool like Deconet would have the biggest single effect on sales.

Share Designs on Social Media

Need the ability to share a design on FB, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest & G+. This will help drive traffic to sites and increase sales.


Urgent need to (at least) allow us to rename & delete Deco installed Designs

Customers searching DecoNetwork Designs (clipart, graphics) are unhappy weary with their search results - even though there are thousands available.

Stores need the ability to at least, rename the design file name (to improve customer search results) and delete undesirable designs.

If DecoNetwork had "World Class Artistic Designs" it would become the leader in Digital Apparel Printing.

Please vote & comment if you agree - this needs prompt attention.




Bulk update for Digitizing

Need The ability to mark multiple files as digitized.

Digitizing / Action / Mark as Digitized. 


Team Stores

I would like to be able to create basically a bulk order form that a high school team can log in, order, and pay for their specific order and then have a batch order for the period of time the store is "open".  For instance,  I would like to offer the same design over possibly 10 different products.  I would like a user (student/family/fan) to be able to log in and purchase the products that they want to.  I want them to be able to pay.  I then want their individual order tallied into a que for the total order.  In this instance I would open the store for a given period of time and when that time ends it would trigger the batch order.  I would then run the order and deliver to the team.  I would also want total, EASY control over the pricing of the decorated products.  Please help this would be a hit for local high schools.


Better Search Filter Options

I think DN would benefit a better search filter/attribute option in the left hand column, where customers can quickly drill-down to the garment they are looking for from a particular category (e.g search by gender, price, colour, size, brand etc etc).




Production Times/Rush Fees By Decoration Method

I've seen some other similar ideas posted but didn't seem to quite cover what I'm after.  We should be able to set our Standard Production Times by decoration method.  For example, I can easily do a 2 day turnaround on DTG prints but If I set that as my standard production then I'm forced to commit to that on Screen Prints and Embroidery.  I also think you should be able to offer/not offer rush fees based on decoration type as well. I was able to sort of do this by only offering rush fees on qts of 11 or less thus negating my minimums of 12 on SCR and EMB. If you can combine this with the production times you can set at the product level then you can be assured that all your bases are covered. Then each total order can default to the product and decoration method that takes the longest time to complete.  


Ability to set Rush Order Fees for either Business Hub / Store

Cant find if there is s way to do this.  But I would find it very helpful if the "Rush Order Fees" Could be set to be used within in the Business Hub only and not the Store.  I have stock products on the store, but do customised work that i'm just starting to use business hub for.  I want to be able to charge them Rush Order fees when I process orders through Business Hub.  Or even idividually set Rush Order Fees for individual products as well. 


Sell designs of the affiliate pages in our principal page. (more traffic, sales and designs)

I think that the best for to sell is that the users can sell her designs and products in her affiliate shops, but also in our principal shop, because we have the principal traffic, and for the affiliate is very difficult get traffic.
I have too much affiliate without products, or with only 1 o 2 products... I think that is a good Idea.
Is very nice for us for to get more original designs, and make a comunity (with a little panel for her designs and votes, comments,..), but is better for the user with not too designs or little traffic, or little knowledge of SEO. I think that can make more convertions and sales.

Production and Order Pending Times Settings on store level

There should be an option that allows us to set production and turn-around times on the affiliate store level or a custom shipping method.

Also this ties into Shipping and order times need to be more clear like stated here
