Get a single print file for all print areas / sides

This tool enables you to get a single print file instead of receiving a print file for each print area/side of your product.

You can configure how to merge in a single file all print areas/sides in your product and define the format and quality of the print file.

 

WARNING

This addon is not compatible with the cut lines / bleed lines.

 

An example of the use for each side

When we have products with more than one side, which you can configure via Customizable Products > Click on the product > Add another side, for example, two sides with front and back of a t-shirt how we see below:

We add the check "Get a single print file for all product areas" via Printing Methods > Edit/Add the desired Printing Method, we add the options as we see below, for example:

mceclip3.png

in this case, the output will be a single file, as we see below:

An example of the use for each print area

When we have products with more than one print area, which you can configure via Customizable Products > Click on the product > Edit Print Area, like what we see below: 

mceclip4.png

We add the check "Get a single print file for all product areas" via Printing Methods > Edit/Add the desired Printing Method, we add the options as we see below, for example:

mceclip7.png

in this case, the output will be a single file, as we see below:

Now, we see that without the function activated "Get a single print file for all product areas"  we will have an output with one file for each print area, like the one below:

How to configure the single print file

  1. Go to Addons and activate the addon called "Get a single print file for all print areas". (Skip this step if you are on an Unlimited plan as the addon is already included and activated for your account).

  2. Go to Printing Methods and choose an already existing printing method or create a new one.

  3. Scroll down to the section Print-Ready Files and check Get a single print file for all print areas/sides to open the configuration options of the single print file.

  4. Now you are able to set file dimensions and margins, layout (number of columns and rows), and the position of the print areas. The print file will be like a grid where each cell is a print area of the product, as seen in the previous example.
