Topic: Make design related elements provided by original designer possible
PetsDreamlands Posted: Monday, November 18, 2019 11:06:20 PM
Now that we have a create tool and that customers may add third-party elements to marketplace designs created by designers, it would be nice (and fair), if designers get the opportunity to add their own elements to their designs, too.

This would allow designers to provide optional/alternate design elements that match their design. Such as decorative monogram letters, frames, design-specific decor.

The elements should be design-specific so the designer can keep the choice manageable and only add elements that are meant to be used with that specific design.

I assume you will group the different elements in categories, sorted by theme and type, probably. In that case you may group all design-specific elements provided by the designer in a dedicated category/tab that has to be put on top of the list, so the customer has easy access to it.

The designer may add the elements within the design and flag them accordingly.

The functionality is there, it has "only" (I know that this comes with a good amount of extra work) to be adapted. And it would be a great add both for customers and designers.

Its good that you see the humor in my comments and don't take them as personal attacks. I have been paying slightly more attention to the forums because the 22nd is very close and I always look for the comments by Zazzle.

Yep, your first sentence hurt me badly, can't sleep anymore Crying Grin
More focused on the 21th here, trying not to miss also that actual sale (how time flies, when you sit at your pc).

To be honest, you get way better results in Photoshop and the like anyway, where you can play with blend modes and have more fine-tuning options.

Except that in this case, we're talking about templates. Alas.

Yup, I know, just wanted to note that it's not that big loss. Color gradients on text objects (as on shapes and icons), on the other hand, would be great. These are doable and are really missed, especially for monograms.

Wherever you go, whatever you do, my very best wishes to you, Fuzzy. Take care and enjoy what you love most. You will be missed by many, myself included, even if we don't know us.

Best of Luck! Roses

@PetsDreamlands You do understand why Designer News was established, right? Its supposed to be updated on a regular basis. Maybe they are just behind in placing more recent news there or one hand doesn't know what the other hand is doing ... There must be a reason why the link you are providing doesn't work. This is something Zazzle need to chime in on and clarify ...

Don't beat on me, I'm innocent and not a Zazzle employee. I'm sure, Padie will love to get tarred and feathered by you Grin

Jokes apart... the Associates newsletter is meant for associates. It gives information about incoming sales, so promotors/affiliates can plan their ads a few days in advance.

No idea, why the link is broke, maybe it's unintentional and the guys at Zazzle didn't realize yet. I suppose they will read these post and probably check it out.
