We are giving you a free 30-day trial so its a great opportunity for you to get your first orders in before you even have to pay for the service, yet it might still seem daunting to get all the groundwork started.

I will highlight how simple it is to sign up, promote your designer and process your first order from the Ignition Drawing interface.

2. Promoting your Private Label Designer

Now that you are set up its time to promote your designer to your customers.

We recommend a few steps for this:

  • including it in your e-mails
  • adding it to your e-mail signatures
  • create a portal page guideline on your existing business website

Here is the approach of one of our subscribers: Portal Page Example

3. Processing Orders

Designs tab

New customers can make designs on your Private Label without logging in but they will need a simple username and password in order to save and submit order requests.

Once a design is created either by you or your customers, it will be accessible on your Ignition Drawing account. Under the Layout Lab tab(fig 3) under Designs. You will have all the needed information and tools for you to process, share or download the created art under the actions menu(fig 4). We also have the ability to place a vector or digitizing order if further art editing is needed.
