Your store comes with a easy to use product creator. Here is a video guide:
On the page’s top bar click the “Store Admin” button. From the store admin you can find the ‘Store Art’ button on the left side of the page. It’s the one that looks like a picture with two triangles. Within the ‘Store Art’ page just click the ‘UPLOAD ART’ button at the top right and choose to ‘Upload Print Files’. Your art can then be dragged and dropped in or added by browsing your computer for the files.
Uploaded art be added to “Active Art” in the Store Art page. To manage the art once uploaded, you can open the menu by clicking on the 3 vertical dots to the bottom right of the artwork. The menu will have 2 or 3 options available according to the nature of the artwork:
- Manage Colorways: This will only show for vector artwork. This option is explained below in detail.
- Mark as Inactive: This will move the artwork to “Inactive Art” in the Store Art page. It can then not be used in products until it is reactivated.
- Delete Art: This removes the artwork from the store.
Colorways can only be applied to 100% vectorized art. They allow you to create different color variants of your artwork. These variants can be assigned to different color options of a product, so that your artwork can look nice no matter what color of garment it is on.

After selecting the ‘Manage Colorways’ option described above, click on ‘CREATE NEW COLORWAY’. You will be shown a list of your artwork’s colors.

However, if the artwork has the option to ‘View Colorways’ you can click that and assign a colorway to the currently active garment color.
Under the garment preview image there is a drop-down you can use to change the area of the garment you are adding artwork to. (Example: front, back, or sleeve) Changing the area of the garment you are editing will not erase the work you have done so far.
