Streamline Create: how to use our exciting new service
After months of hard work spent refining the finer details and making the user experience as effortless as possible, we’ve officially launched Streamline Create.
The service is built on our existing eCommerce solution – shop.brandedbystreamline.com – and gives you the ability to customise your branded merchandise products in real-time.
With Streamline Create you have full creative control over the design, look and feel of your merch.
If you haven’t already, make sure to check out this page for a full breakdown of Streamline Create, how it works and how you benefit.
In this post, we’ll walk you through the process of customising a merch product from scratch. By the end, you’ll be able to effortlessly customise your own merch in just a few clicks!
Step 1 – Choose your product
The first thing you’ll need to do is select your merchandise products. Head to this link to explore the full range of merch we have available on Create.
Once you’ve selected your product, hit the “customise me” button, as shown in the image below.
Step 2 – Choose your colour
Now that you’ve selected your product and hit “customise me”, you’ll be taken to a pop-up screen. This is our 3D visualisation branded merchandise customisation app. It’s where all the magic happens!
Once you’re in here, your first step will be selecting your colour from the range available (see below). We’ve opted for a fiery red!
Once you’ve selected your colour, simply hit the “next” button.
Step 3 – Upload your logo
Ok! So, we’ve chosen our product and we’ve picked a colour we like. Now it’s time to make it our own by adding our design.
We’ll need to hit the down arrow to the right of the section titled “upload your logo” and then hit the “upload image” button to add the design. JPEGs and PNGs are both fine here.
Just remember the higher quality the image you provide, the higher quality the end result will be.
Step 4 – Customise the size and placement of your design
As you can see from the image below, it doesn’t initially look as good as we want it to. That means we’ll need to do a little tweaking to get the design looking perfect using the “adjust frame” button.
Once there, we have the option to effortlessly drag and move the design to our desired position and we can also use the sliding sizer bar to get the size just right (see below).
Take a look at the image below to see how we styled ours!
Once you’ve got it styled exactly how you want, hit the place image button to lock it in.
Step 5 – Finalise!
After this, it’s as easy as hitting the “add to cart” button – as shown in the image below – and then choosing our desired quantity and heading to the checkout. Simple!
We clocked all that in at just under 2 minutes – not bad considering we just designed and styled our own item of custom merch.
After that, it’s as simple as sitting back and waiting for your product to arrive.
And, since we’ve got a fully-stocked warehouse, all year round, even delivery will be much faster than you’re used to!
