Creating and Uploading Designs
Once you’ve found your product, simply select that product, and once on the Product page click Design to open the Printed Mint Custom Designer. Or you can also click the paintbrush tool when you hover over the product image.
In the Product Designer, you can use five different tools to help you create or upload your design.
Product- This tool shows you the color variances that this product offers and whether this product can print on multiple sides. It also has the option to duplicate the design you made to another printable area on this product.
Layers- This tool lets you see the designs you have placed onto this product. You can also add a background color, rotate, align, flip, duplicate and make a pattern of your design.
My Files- This is where you will be uploading your existing designs. In this tool, you will also see all the files you have uploaded and be able to search and archive these designs.
Add Text- This tool allows you to add text and change the typeface, color, and size. You'll also have more customizable options like outlines, shadows, letter spacing, line height, alignment, and rotate.
Add Clipart- This tool lets you choose from our numerous clipart characters and customize their colors, rotate, scale, align, flip, duplicate and make them a pattern.
Once your design has been created or uploaded to the designer, click Next at the top right corner of the Product Designer. This will take you to the Mockups of your product. From here, you will select the sizes and colors you wish to use for this product, then click Save.
Product detailing, Add to cart, and Save
The next page is the Product Description page. This option is completely customizable. You are given a chance to rename the product and change the description displayed in your My Designs listing.
Next is the Product Pricing page. First, you must choose if you wish for this design to be saved to your My Designs or for it to be deleted after the first purchase. You will see a graph below depicting the wholesale price, the price you wish to sell it at (this is editable), and the profit you will be making from selling this one product.
Once you choose your retail price, you will have the option to Add To Cart now or to save it to your My Designs and exit the page with theSave and Exit button. There is also a third option with the drop-down menu where you can Save and Open to your new product page.
Once you’ve customized your products and added them to your cart, simply select the bag icon to view the items in your cart. Here, you can write any special instructions for your shipment in the Production Note box. Or if your customer provided you with a gift message, you can input it in the Gift Message box. On this page, you can also select Enable Express Production for a quicker production time.
Once all your items are in your cart, you can Proceed to check out.
This page will require the Billing and Shipping Address to continue with your order. This page will also have an option to enter in a Promo Code. Once this information is filled out, the next page will ask for your Delivery Method and Payment information.
Tracking Your Order
You’ll receive a notification email with a tracking number once your order has shipped, but the easiest way to keep track of your orders is in My Account > Orders.
Here, you can view your order history and see important information about your orders at a glance. You can also search for orders by Order Number, Customer Name, Tracking ID, Order Note, Date, Status, and Total.
Congratulations, you’re officially a Printed Mint ordering expert!
