Before we get to the fun part, we need to first make sure you have properly set-up your app and prepared your designs for the best print quality. To do this simply:

  1. Complete your account profile in 'Settings' with up to date information (in case we need to reach you!)
  2. Add your own logo to our custom branding sets otherwise, Kin Custom logos will be used.
  3. Before creating, make sure your designs meet our Artwork Guidelines.
  4. Review our Print Guide to understand how each product is printed and produced.

Now the fun part! You can design in our Shopify app or use our design tool, Creator Studio, as products are automatically added when a product is finished. Once steps 1-5 above are finished, you may:

  1. Upload your design.
  2. Choose the products you're interested in.
  3. Design, set your profit margins, and get your products available for purchase (instructions below).
  4. Once an order is placed, simply submit payment to fulfill the order.

** Please note, you only pay the base price when an order is submitted. Please make sure you submit payment when your orders are imported automatically; otherwise your orders will not be fulfilled.**
