In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a customizable t-shirt product that allows customers to personalize their t-shirts. They will be able to choose the main color and secondary color of the shirt, as well as add text or upload an image for print. The tutorial will guide you through the process step by step, from preparing the images and masks for the live preview feature to setting up conditional logic for displaying the customization options.
Preparing Images and Masks for Live Preview
Before we can start creating the customization options, we need to prepare the images and masks that will be used for the live preview feature. In this tutorial, we will be using Photoshop to create the masks for the different parts of the t-shirt. The masks will be used to colorize specific parts of the t-shirt based on the selected colors. The base t-shirt image and the masks for the different parts of the t-shirt should be exported as separate images.
Creating a Product in Shopify
To begin, we first need to create a product directly in the Shopify platform. This involves uploading a featured image for the product and setting the price. In our case, let's set the price to $20. At this point, the product does not contain any customization options yet.
Adding Customization Options
To add customization options to the t-shirt product, we will open the app and start adding options. The first step is to select the specific product, in this case, the t-shirt product, on which we want to apply the options. We also want to generate a live preview of the final product, so we will check the corresponding box.
4.1 Adding a Primary Color Field
The first customization option we want to add is for the primary color of the t-shirt. We will add a new option of type "color field" and name it "Primary Color". This field will allow customers to select a color for the t-shirt. The selected color will be used to colorize the corresponding part of the t-shirt image using the mask we prepared earlier.
4.2 Adding a Secondary Color Field
Next, we will add a secondary color field. This field will allow customers to choose another color for a different part of the t-shirt. Again, the selected color will be used to colorize the corresponding part of the t-shirt image using the mask.
4.3 Adding Text Print Option
In addition to selecting colors, we want to give customers the option to add text print to their t-shirt. We will add a drop-down menu field where customers can select between different text print options. We can also set a price increase for each option. To customize the text print, customers can choose the text color, font, opacity, and position. They can also set the text alignment and limit the number of characters per line and the number of lines.
4.4 Adding Picture Print Option
Lastly, we will add an option for customers to upload an image for print on their t-shirt. We will add a picture print field where customers can upload their desired image. They can choose to make the upload field required or allow multiple uploads. Similar to the text print option, customers can specify the position and size of the uploaded image using the live preview.
Setting up Conditional Logic for Displaying Options
Now that we have added all the customization options, we need to set up conditional logic to determine when each option field should be displayed. For example, the text print field should only be displayed when the custom print drop-down menu is set to "Text Print". The same logic should apply to the picture print field. By setting up conditional logic, we can ensure that customers only see relevant options based on their selections.
Saving and Viewing the Final Result
Once all the customization options and conditional logic have been set up, we can save our progress and view the final result. The customization options will work seamlessly, allowing customers to see a live preview of their personalized t-shirt. The price field will also be automatically updated based on the options chosen. When customers add the product to their cart, the final live preview results will be uploaded so that the store owner can retrieve them during the fulfillment process.
In this tutorial, we have learned how to create a customizable t-shirt product using Shopify and the Infinite Live Preview Options app. We have covered the steps from preparing the images and masks for the live preview feature to setting up conditional logic for displaying the customization options. With the flexibility of the app, you can create unlimited combinations of customization options for your products. Have fun exploring the possibilities and creating unique personalized products for your customers.
