Why Does It Matter?

There is a misconception that when you add a product, it is just for your store. However, your product pages where we pull images from to print when you get orders. If you do not have your print-ready design files uploaded to this area, we are unable to complete your order.

How To Fix It

If you have added your products incorrectly, no worries! It's actually not hard to fix.

Step 1: Manage Products

At this point you will be able to see if you've uploaded the correct images in the correct places. The print image file(s) should be uploaded in the print image section, and the mockup file(s) should be uploaded in the mockup section. If you have no labeled your files to distinguish between image files and mockup files, you can either look up the image in your images to check, or simply remove it and select the correct image just to be sure.

All you have to do to remove an incorrect file is click the red "remove" button.

Step 4: Add Correct Files

step 4

Make sure that your print-ready image file is uploaded in the print image area, and that the mockup is uploaded in the mockup area. Click the "update product" button at the bottom of the page, and that's it!

Other Considerations

It is also important to note that if you update or make changes to your images, you will need to re-upload the image in your "my images" then ALSO update the files in your products. If it is not updated there, the older image will continue to be printed when ordered.
