To better understand the industry and the printing techniques that you are using with Fancy Product Designer, it would be very helpful for us when you take a short time and answer followings questions. Thank you!!
Gerard you seem to be in the same boat as I am.
I have limited a lot of the mobile functions on my site using css (Currently still under construction) but take a look.
I am fairly new to FPD and would be interested to see your site too and see how you do things.
We use DTG, CAD Cut vinyl and digital eco solvent print, all for t-shirts bags etc
.ai, .eps and PDF
We need an editable, downloadable file, that has layers, with all text and vector layers should editable with embedded fonts and any clip art or uploaded images and photos on separate layers. Otherwise as a printer its not really possible for us to use or recreate the files that buyers create
I am yet to see the pricing structure for this new feature but i fear it will stop us using this plugin or not purchasing it! We cant use it at the moment because if i buyer adds some text and a photo, we havent got an editable file to work from. I.e we can download an SGV but it wont have the uploaded image in it, so we would be stuffed :) We could cut the text as it would be in vector format but would have to use a screenshot print for the image, and that would be pixelated and low quality
Laser Cut and Engraved Cake Toppers
We use a Laser Cutter to cut out peoples designs
We use svg formats to set up the cut file
Price depends on size and material being cut/engraved
Mostly our designs are a4 and a5, but we also use custom sizes. Using svg, so resolution not so important.
