Happy Customer, great postcard prints, please work on better previews now
Posted: Thursday, February 07, 2019 2:01:46 PM
Just got feedback + photo from a customer who bought a bunch of postcards. Good news, very happy customer and happy designer (me), too. The postcards were printed perfectly, vivid and with intense colors, practically identical to my original work (RGB). Thank you for that great quality work!

What you really shall do now, is providing more vivid and appealing preview pictures that depict approximately the printed end results and let our designs shine. Too many previews/mockups are grey-ish, "dead", washed out, and some (too much) are absolutely awful. No way, the prints will look as bad as depicted on some previews (blankets, Uncommon cases, some paperware/cards, duvets, scarves and much more). Forget the textures and fancy, artificially de-saturated (trendy?) mockups. For the sake of more appealing product views and sales. Please.

Here's a comparison between designer view, preview (new announcement postcard) and real print. The preview on the announcement postcards isn't as bad as many other (newer) ones, but the difference is visible. You really need to enhance the mockups, they're sub-par. Thanks!

I agree, many of the in-situ images are horrible! For example, the in-situ preview images for Foil Cards. There's a glare down the middle of every preview image where the base images were obviously photographed with an overhead light turned on. The glare is so bad you can't see the design in many cases. I'm not sure how Zazzle expects customers to be able to shop these designs when they can't even see what the designs are.

I designed one or two foil cards when they first came out and then stopped because the preview wiped out a good deal of the design.

I have to add I have ordered the foil cards and they are GORGEOUS in person! I know I sell them so the bad preview doesn't deter everyone from ordering.
