  • How to set up a Tshirt design template on your website

    Can anyone lead me in the right direction on this? I've been designing for quite some time now and would like to step up my game in the t-shirt department. I'd like to embed a system into my website that allows people to create a t-shirt using designs that I've already made. I'd like a system such as VistaPrint and Custom Ink have. You know, the template they use where you can sign on and design it yourself.

    Does anyone know how I can incorporate a system like that into my site? Is it a program I need to purchase?

    Thank you,
    Craig

    Do you print T-shirts?

    If not, something like Etsy or Cafe Press may be more in order.

      I do have a screen printing press. I've googled how to implement the template system into a website, but after hours of nothing I can't figure it out

        How familiar are you with content management systems (CMS) and web application scripting?

        There's an add-on component for Joomla (a CMS) called VirtueMart, which, in turn, has an add-on called Product Builder.

        Drupal (another CMS) has something similar called Drupal Commerce, but I'm not very familiar with it.

        Finally, there's Magento (a CMS devoted solely to e-commerce). There's an extension available for it called Product Configurator, but again, I haven't actually used it.

        I'm not at all sure if any of these off-the-shelf solutions will do exactly what you need, but my best guess is that they're as close as you're going to get. The Joomla VirtueMart add-on might work for what you need, but I'm unsure if it will allow customer artwork uploads, if you were even thinking about that.You might try Googling the items I've mentioned above in italics; they might lead to some ideas or other, more suitable, products.

        This is all reasonably complicated stuff with a steep learning curve unless you're already intimately familiar with CMS systems. It won't be a casual investment of your time. My best guess is that both VistaPrint and Custom Ink are using custom-programmed solutions, but I have no way of knowing for sure.

          Thank you very much for taking the time to list those for me! I'm definitely going to check all of them out. I'm not very familiar at all with CMS, so I suppose it'll be another journey in my life. I enjoy learning new things even if it's very time consuming. I think the only problem I'll encounter is finding the time to learn the system with the client load and 3 kids and my wife, haha.

            It's just what I call it when people use an expression that actually says or means the opposite of what is intended; ''could care less'' would be another prime example.

            That makes sense, I guess. Off is the inverse of on, which makes based off the inverse of based on. Got it. ...

            Okay, I know what a colloquialism is, but what is an inverse colloquialism?

            Probrien, in addition to HotButton's comments, which I agree with, the ad is a bit confusing. Maybe it's lacking...

            ''Based off'' is inverse of ''based on.'' ''Based on'' is a colloquialism.
            I think.
            I have not had enough to drink to play this game.

            Thanks for the feedback. That all makes a lot of sense. I'll take these points and re-work things....
