Ever since we first conceptualized PhotoDay, we envisioned a product that included several key items we wanted to bring our potential studios and their customers. While quite a few of those items were quickly introduced in the months after our initial launch, there was one key feature that acted as our “white whale”, of sorts – a feature that had been requested many times over from our studios since the very beginning.

Today, PhotoDay is proud to announce the first phase in rolling out Live Preview – a long awaited addition to our product that allows your customers to preview how their final customizable items will look before they’re added to the cart!

NOT ALL ITEMS ARE THE SAME

Customizable products such as memory mates, magnets, and buttons are offered by all of our partner labs as part of an effort to give their studios options that will satisfy customers. Options can include theming options, colored backgrounds, swappable photos, and even text – providing a product that is truly personalized for the buyer.

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET

For select products, customers will be able to see how their personalizations will appear before they click the checkout button. Alterations can be made and typos can be fixed right from the customization screen!

THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING

Right now, this first phase rollout of Live Preview is only for select products from Reedy Photo, with GPA following in March. Studios using those labs will immediately have these options available to their customers when purchasing memory mates, magnets, buttons, and trading cards. We are currently working to expand the reach of this feature to our remaining labs and a larger product range, so be sure to stay tuned – we don’t plan on slowing down!
