I would like the ability to change the decoration sizing per product sizing. Example we sell a specific product that comes in vastly different sizes and instead of creating a product for each size we would like to just adjust the decoration sizing.
Front print location for sizing "A" 16 x 24
Front print location for sizing "B" 24 x 36
Front print location for sizing "C" 36 x 54
I have 5 "my design" pages when I upload a design to a product, What a pain to flip thru to the last page to find a file I just uploaded. or select the wrong one.. I would like to be able to delete the old images that I don't use or slightly changed and maybe organize them... This should be a simple feature added to my design stock page... What does the deco family think?
We have been debating the idea of using custom fields to give our customers more options for their products. One of the main issues we are looking at is dealing with adding names and numbers. This works perfectly with custom fields since not only do they not have to be required like normal text but they also will show up at the checkout level in the cart so customers can see all the way through that they are getting what they typed in. The issue being we woudln't be able to charge them extra for doing so.
It could also be useful for other features like do you want gift wrapping +X dollars with checkbox fields and such other great ways to build on custom fields
We have 4 or 5 main stores that we operate that have unique niches, but some of the decorated products could be shared & available to 2 or 3 orther stores. We have 100's of decorated products.
For a decorated product that we want to use in multiple stores, current implentation requires us to create a decorated product from scratch in each store.
Provide the ability to designate that a decorated product is applicable to one to many stores. This could take the form of designating the decorated product for availability in multiple stores, providing the ability to import decorated products from other stores...anything that minimizes the clicks / time needed to make a decorated product available in multiple stores.
Our shop has 100's of products, 100's of decorated products and 100's of custom designs.
The current implemenation displays these products / designs in pages. If I want to move a product from page 10 to page 3, I have to either move it page by page 10 to 9 to 8, etc... or move to top page 1 and then move to 2, then to 3.
This is very time consuming, particularly when moving many products / designs.
Please improve the ability to sort and move products & designs within our shops. An interface that I think is simple and easy to re-organize is Netflix. I can easily move movies in my queue from 50 to 15 with one click.
Generally need improved ability to rearrange products / designs within store. This should be uniformly applied to all locations that provide sorting. I only listed to the two that are most commonly an issue.
We are a direct to garment printer and our inks are absorbed into the shirt which causes the design to look different depending on the shirt color. It would be fantastic if there was anyway to simulate the "Multiply" layer style in photoshop whenever a design is uploaded or made into a decorated product. This would help us give a more accurate representation of what the product the customer orders would look like. As of now we just use the saturation filter and darken the design to look kind of like it but it is not accurate as you change the shirt color.
I would like the team ad decontwork to add a color picker instead of the color slider....Dye-sublimation gives us the option of every color combination available. A color picker makes it simple for our customers to match they color they desire...The slider is a constant guessing game whereas acolor picker is an exact science for my customers...This is about my customers....Please vote on this so Deco-Network will move this to the top of their list..
I noticed that when I print production sheet for customers with terms, it shows balance due on the top in a big square box. production sheet goes to my printer who does not need to know how much I am charging for a job I should have an option to hide that from displaying. This is an easy fix and should be considered in the next release
My customers would like to be able to edit and upload new artwork to a quote that I designed or has a placeholder image and needs the final artwork for there order. Please vote...
You should have the option to combine different items for a quantity discount as long as they have the same design. If a customer orders 24 navy tees and 24 long sleeve navy tees we should be able to choose if we want to price that as 48 pieces or leave it at 2 x24 pieces.
The "Date" options in the Custom Fields only go back as far as 2004 and in the future to 2024 or something ridiculous. This needs to extend much further into the past, I'm uploading Christmas ornaments and I need people to choose the year they were born, married, etc. and for quite a bit of the population, pre-2004 was important ;)
I think we need more control over the widgets and product catgories. For example with my old shopping cart platform, when we created new products they would automatically be displayed using the "Latest" product widget and again best sellers were automatically populated under the "Best Sellers" widget.
Currently we have one widget which only displays products from the selected category there isnt even an option for displaying producsts under sub categories!! We can't even duplicate this widget as a work around.
I would like to see more widgets avaliable and the ability to add products into more then one category.
Not sure if this counts as a "feature" exactly but how about a 24/7 custom support system via phone or live chat? I know there used to be a tab for that but there was never anyone on the other end, it was always leave a message. I almost rather see something like this work than see a brand new awesome feature. Sometimes waiting 24 hours is too long to get some immediate support.
I would like the ability to remove all the Deconetwork logos, even in the back end of my affiliates. My customers (who do not own printing equipment) do not need to know who we use for our platform. It doesn't benifit deconetwork to advertise to my customers who do not have the means to use the deco platform without printing equipment.
With our frustration for the lack of Deco team members communication at the current forum, I like to think that is do to not wanting to share publicly (hoping this is the reason) their plans or whatever they are doing that they would like to have in a closed circuit, even if this is not the reason I still would like to have a private forum, I don't like much thinking of my potential competition watching and reading what I'm up to, if they are also members of Deco then I would feel that we're in a fair game.
So if you like the Idea please VOTE!

We really do need the option to do BATCH uploads of our own Store Designs just like we can with Stock designs. At the moment the only option is to upload them one by one or import into stock first which means all stores have access to them.
At the very least if batch uploads have been done in Stock and then 'copied' to Store they should actually be copied rather than linked so that they can be either deleted or disabled from stock if you don't want all stores to have access to those particular designs.
As is stands the files remain linked so if you decide to delete them from Stock they also get deleted from Store.
The online designer has the ratio, the + & - toggle & corner drag sizing, but it is almost impossible to get 2 objects the same size on the page. It would be nice to have the ability to just type a size. Not really an Idea, Just an improvement... Thanks
This could probably be lumped into "PowerClip Editing Contents" by Ruben, but I view it a little differently.
Cropping is really nothing more than supplying a clipping mask and then removing the "masked area" The function already exists. We use it when we set a custom product decoration area. Essentially, what I am looking for is the ability to select a clipping mask and supply a background from stock images or uploaded images. The "masked area" would be below subsequently added text or images allowing for "layers" of decoration.
I am not asking for a custom clipping mask, just a basic circle and rectangle that can be sized without regard to proportion. This would allow for most "cropping" functions.
The primary application is photographs where we want to drop out a background or select one idividual in a goup photo, etc.
The next step would be to place the mask image behind the "cropped" image with a 4 or 6 pt stroke and apply a gausian blur to feather the edges into a white or black border, so it doesn't look so much like a "cut-out".
The obvious advantage is to allow a retail customer to upload and crop an image as part of their decoration without having to involve the "art department". If it could be treated as a design image element, it would allow for it to be a "chargeable" feature much like adding a custom piece of art from a pay as you go source.
Alternatively, if it would be possible to upload a template to accomplish this, but that would be limiting.
Customer called me to get a quote on 100 t-shirts with 2 color print. I started a quote screen while customer is on the phone, enetred the t-shirt and his design so now I see unit price and a discount 7.5% and then a grand total. Where is the NET PRICE of the product. He doesnt want to hear that the price is $8.00 minus 7.5% discount. he wants the net price. I had to pull out a calculator to give him the net price which is preety dumb. However, I noticed that the customer does see a net price on the quote that was emailed to him. So why not make the same number visible to me on my screen. Even I as a salesmen would like to see what is the final price I am charging them for the product before I email them a quote.
