Transfer this design onto another product 3 pages: [1] 2 3
Posted: Monday, November 12, 2018 12:12:18 PM
I'm just now seeing this on the product pages. Very nice!

One suggestion, it needs to be above the 'Other designs you might like' section and 'Other products from this collection' section.

Great job, Z. Roses

Oh yeah! That is nice!! And the link is also still there under design thumbnail (hope it continues to remain there).

Another thing that I noticed is that Zippo lighters are highlighted as a suggestion. Isn't that going to cause a lot of canceled orders, considering their approval process?

Glad you like it! It is pretty coolGrin

I'll check up on the zippo lighters, I can also imagine some might get cancelled seeing as Zippos have a very strict policy of their own. Thanks for flagging!

It's pretty cool indeed, except for the fact that often times the design is being transferred upside-down.

For instance with this Black Stripe & Aqua Monogram Beach Towel, or this Black Teal Chevron Beach Towel the image transfers upside down onto pretty much every product shown available for transfer.

I didn't check any other products, but I expect that it's like that with all of the products. For just patterns this might not be that big of a deal, but for customizable designs not desirable.

EDIT: I notice it's not with all types of products, but it is definitely an issue with the towels.

EDIT 2: lol I guess this new transfer thing is being worked on atm, because now one of the two above mentioned products transfer right side up.

Admittedly, I checked only a few, but they were transferring right side up.

I looked at a Towel Set with multiple layers - all wonky - a Mug (on the home page today or coupons page - sleigh all day) with Design on one side - all Transfer suggested Products appeared to be blank bc design is on other side - and another Mug with Designs on both sides - and both front/back Designs appeared on front of suggested Transfer Products.

It wasn't pretty. It mirrored my experience with Transfer. Most often needs work. Not a problem to need work, but I don't usually flaunt my half-baked designs.

Where it works, it's a beautiful thing.

I'm guessing the "Transfer this Design" has been moved from beneath the design image next to the design information? It has been there for quite a while.

It's still there. I mentioned that above.

Was it ever answered as to whether the "transfer this design" shows only products where we have not already added the design?

I would like to know the answer to this also and if not then I think it is a good idea if the "found in collection" strip stays above the "transfer this" option. That way if I already have the product they are thinking of transferring to they can see that first and save them the trouble.

The answer is "no". All products are offered, regardless whether you've created one with the design or no.

I've had some products transferred to products I've already made with that design, but for whatever reason a customer preferred transferring (which was good for me because my default royalty was higher than that donor product's royalty Smile

Hopefully the picture isn’t too small to see how poorly the design transfers from this product.



I don’t mind the transfer feature, but I definitely think the collections need to stay right where they are. My designs are cropped in specific ways for different products and, because they aren’t just repeating patterns that can basically be centered, that means that they often don’t transfer seamlessly from one product to the next even within the same product type. (I know a lot of shops have the same issue)

At least with the collection displayed under my product and above the transfer suggestions, customers can see a better representation of products with that design.

I woke up today just to notice that my design for little kids was offered for transfer on a lighter !Sad

I quickly opted out from transfer option .
Some transfers are great - others just poor . My little vintage girl , for example , was beheaded at transfer . Crying

I wrote me views about it last year and I repeat : please let the designers choose the products where transfer is allowed .Otherwise it becomes a total mess .

yeah, on second thought, collections should probably be featured first.

I am with you Jerry, on pushing the "other designs" feed to the bottom though! or off the page would be even better but anyway... Idea

There needs to be a flag that prevents "image too small" graphics from being offered on larger items, like Ornaments to Pillows. That can only lead to customer disappointment.

This is especially so when we've already created a, in this example, Pillow with that design, where we knew to make whatever adjustments were necessary.

There are some problems.

When transferring from a colored shirt the color of the shirt is transferred as a background color. It works with some products but not all, like the trucker hat for example.

The watches and clocks need tweaking. For example...

Here is the original product


transferred to a May 28th watch, looks good


transferred to a ewatch, not so good


transferred to a clock, pretty bad

I have noticed that when the suggestions for products to transfer the design to are shown, then none of my products from my collection are shown. Not good.Crying

I'm seeing collections show up 1st.

I believe the products that appear on the Design Transfer pod on the product page have all been predetermined. So, Product A will always show Product B, Product C, and Product D in the Design Transfer pod.

If you're seeing an issue with how your images are transferring from the existing product onto the products appearing in the Design Transfer pod, feel free to list the product ID of the existing product and I'll take a look when I have a chance.

Aside from the pocket watch example above, which requires precision design placement, the rest is all product design area situations. For example, on most t-shirt designs I always place my smaller/shorter designs higher on the chest or back, which will not transfer well.

I like that the examples in the pod try and match design space and intent.

I will look for and point out any specific things that I find here. The watch one above is 256283044038396011.

This product

256797506591077062

It looks pretty good on product A, B, and C but D and E are not a good fit at all.

Thanks for taking a look Scott!

Please show collections first. Also a one sided thing showing up on a pillow will end up as a pillow with just the front covered. Some of my images won't fit some suggestions without major tweaking and looking terrible as the suggested items show. It just looks bad as is. Also if you have wording specifically for a hat or whatnot, it doesn't really look right on a shirt, or other things. A lot to consider. I wish we had an option to allow what is transferable and what is not so things will look and turn out right.
Thanks for reading.

It seems like out-of-stock items shouldn't be shown. Just saw this under a Bath Mat.

Also, it's a triangle shape, and a rectangle wasn't going to transfer well.

I have now cancelled this option of transferring designs to other products! After viewing many products with the same design, they are not a good fit, In fact they don't fit at all Laughing This move to transfer only devaluates the design that was created for a particular product! Jilly
Posted: Thursday, November 15, 2018 2:12:16 AM
Better still unless I have missed something , can we as designers transfer our designs only on products we ourselves choose!

I've found two oddities in using the transfer design function.

Transferring to a corkscrew, the design is placed on the back rather than the front.

Transferring to file folders, the design is placed on the inside center folder instead of left front (which would more obviously be the preferred location to start with).

In both cases, it's a bit confusing because the image you're shown first is the one where you expect the design to show up but doesn't. So you're looking at a blank and it seems as though the design didn't transfer at all.

Thanks for flagging @lewister. I've checked the corkscrew and can see that transfer issue you've mentioned. When transferring to a file folder though it seems to appear on the inside left, but still shows the general issue to are talking about.

I'll pass this along to QA to take a look Smile

I think the new transfer tool is awesome.
