Step One: Choosing Your Product
From our home page, click on the product line you are interested in.
Then browse through our product listings until you find the product you would like to order.
Step Two: Customizing Your Product
Now that you've selected a product, it's time to customize it.
The first step is to specify what text you want.
A series of text boxes will appear for you to fill in.
When you're done, click on "Go to Next Page."
Note: The Design Center page will not apply for some products; for such products you will be automatically directed to the shopping cart.
The Design Product page is where you finish adding all the details to your product.
You will see four "option" tabs at the top, a left tool bar, a top tool bar, and the design preview.
When you are finished making your additions you may add your product to your shopping cart by clicking the "Continue" button.
Also, if you do not have the latest version of Flash, you can download it at: http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer.
The "select layout" tab will be chosen by default.
Under this tab you have the option to specify how you would like any text and/or art you have entered to be displayed on your product.
Just click on the layout you like.
Here you choose what paper stock you want.
Simply choose a stock from the listing and click it to select it.
The "select artwork" tab allows you to add art to your product.
We have a constantly growing library of art that we let our customers use at no cost.
You can also upload your personal artwork for use with your product.
To use artwork from our library, select the topic you are interested in from the list at the bottom of the box.
Then click on the specific image you want.
To upload your own artwork click on the "upload artwork" tab.
Click on the upload art button and specify the location of the artwork.
Browse your hard drive or external disk to find the art you wish to upload.
Then click on the "upload file" button to complete the process.
To use this art, click on its thumbnail image and it will be transferred to your product.
Step Three: Completing Your Purchase
The shopping cart will contain any items which have been added while placing an order.
If you wish to add another item to your order click on the "Continue Shopping" button and you will be taken to the original product page to start over with a new item.
If you are through shopping and you wish to purchase the items in your shopping cart, click on the "Proceed To Checkout" button.
