A4 Launches Online Custom Design Studio for Team Market
Technology continues to increase the capabilities of apparel suppliers to the team business along with the services team dealers are able to offer to their steams. The latest is the launch by sportswear and team uniform manufacturer A4 of its Custom Design Studio for team dealers. The new platform is available at www.A4.com and allows customers to decorate and order garments online.
According to A4, unlike other platforms its Custom Design Studio allows users to decorate using four different methods: Screenprint, heat transfer, embroidery and tackle twill. This full spectrum approach gives users greater flexibility in their decoration.
The designs can be saved in a Design Archive and organized in lockers for easy retrieval. Each design can be exported to share with others for input or pre-approval. Rosters with player names and numbers can be added to any order, and also saved for future use to eliminate duplicate entry.
“What I like the most is how easy and intuitive it is to use. Even folks who aren’t tech savvy can quickly decorate and order a uniform in just a few minutes,” explains Greg Vanover, sales leader at A4. “And, there are features that make adding different versions for home versus away or for youth versus adult, a snap.”
All orders receive an art proof, so customers can see exactly how the garment will look prior to decoration. The ability to order garments and save design is only available to wholesale customers of A4, not the general public. This makes the Custom Design Studio a tool for team dealers looking to streamline their business, promotional products businesses looking to offer companies decorated apparel and screen printers who want to offer extended decoration capabilities.
