Custom Promotional Items

07/14/2022

Two weeks ago we developed a new module for selling custom promotional items.

Now end customers can buy products “as is” or change premade design. For example, they can add congratulation note.

The module can be configured in the control panel’s section “Print/Merch”. You can align designs (templates and cliparts) with products on which they can be printed.

We suppose that in the next two months the similar module will be integrated into new version of the Acronym mobile application.

Layout Checking in the Design Editor

06/29/2022

After the last Acronym service update the design editor has the function for checking page coverage percentage of spreads, printing surfaces and frames in the created layout. Error data is displayed on the right sidebar.

Now a client can approve a layout in the modal preview window while adding a product to the shopping cart.

To learn how this function works for photobooks, visit our demo website.

Design Editor as Plugin to CMS

06/23/2022

The core of any retail printing on demand service is the editor allowing users to create bespoke designs.

Manufacturability of commercial web-to-print solutions is assessed by the quality of their editor. Often, it can’t be used separately and doesn’t render well on mobile devices.

We’ve done more and made our editor not only responsive and easy to use, but also available for usage on any external website as a plugin. Product price can be calculated through Acronym internal algorithms or sent to the editor externally.

  • ns1.gcorelabs.net

We remind you that you can do this in the domain name registrar panel.

PicPac photo print service

02/17/2022

The Belarusian photo print service PicPac has been working with us for two years now.

This week, the service updated its website design, making it one of the most interesting projects on Acronym.

In two months the service will switch to a new photo book editor which will run on all mobile devices in April. In addition, it will get its own mobile application with an integrated editor for photo books, calendars, and souvenirs.

08/13/2021

Added a feature of automatic upload of orders to the cloud services Yandex.Disc, Cloud Mail.ru and Dropbox.

Consequently, we are discontinuing our support of the offline Acronym Order Manager application for order uploading.

New delivery page

08/04/2021

Its main differences from the design editor are:

  • A modern interface like in the world's best online editors.
  • An artificial intelligence algorithm for the automatic photo filling with its positioning in the frame compared to the people in the picture.
  • Changing of the page designs, page spreads, placing photos and frame sets by dragging objects with the mouse (Drag&Drop).

  • Bank of modern cliparts and design elements.
  • Bank of ready-made photo frames.

Testing new delivery page

06/18/2021

The main theme of the next update, scheduled for early July, will be the new delivery page.

The new delivery page will allow you to choose the order delivery point both from your offices and from the transport companies points directly on the map. In case of a courier delivery, it will be possible to choose a house and set the apartment or office number in the same way.

Since the page is fundamentally different from the current one, it will be connected separately. If you are interested in its early implementation to the website, we invite you to join the testing starting next week. This will allow us to take into account all the requests for the update.

As before, to test any new functionality before updating, please contact our specialist.

Note that this editor is used in many popular software development environments. We also added a switch between the code editor (“Markup”) and the visual editor (“Design”) to the markup editing pages.

Example of Acronym implementation

03/04/2021

Language URL constant

01/27/2021

Example of usage: /printing.

Template statistics

01/20/2021

With the last update, Acronym has obtained a feature of viewing template usage statistics in orders arranged through the design editor.

The analytics is available in the control panel in the section “Order/ Statistics → By the templates used in orders”.

Results of 2020 and plans for 2021

01/15/2021
