Printavo Merch Improvements: Customizable Store Descriptions With HTML


We're excited to introduce a new feature this week: customizable store descriptions for Printavo Merch.

View our test store here to see what HTML looks like on a live Printavo Merch online store.

You can now modify your online store's descriptions with basic HTML formatting, including:

  • Header tags
  • Bold, italics, and other text formatting
  • Links
  • Images

This will let you convey important information, add links (such as your terms and conditions or email contact), and offer a more visually appealing product for your customers.

Here are a few simple tips for formatting your Merch store descriptions.

  • Keep descriptions short
    • Less is more: convey only what you must.
  • Test extensively and notify us at Printavo Support if you discover any issues
    • To test, open your store in one browser tab and refresh it when you save changes to your description
    • Be sure to test on mobile as well
  • Small images work best
    • In general, we don't recommend images–but we're curious to see how you use them!
    • Images should not exceed  600 pixels in width for desktop display...
    • ...or exceed 320 pixels for mobile display
    • If unsure, use images no wider than 320 pixels wide in descriptions
    • Currently, images are not resized–test carefully!
  • Headers work great for emphasis
  • Link to your terms and conditions
    • Reduce confusion and clarify exact terms
    • If you need some example terms and conditions, check out our Guide to Online Stores.

We're happy to continue improving and iterating on Printavo Merch. We want to provide screen printers and custom print shops with a powerful online store tool. 

As usual, you can see recent changes, improvements, and updates to Printavo on the Printavo changelog.

Additionally, here's a list of the basic HTML formatting functions.

Join Printavo’s amazing community at PrintHustlers Conf 2020, an elite conference for the best and brightest in the custom apparel industry. Now in its fourth year, PrintHustlers Conf has brought shops from across the world (even Nigeria!) for two days of incredible presentations, seminars, and relationship building.

If you want to meet the industry’s biggest players, learn from the best, and have a blast at an incredible venue with truly inspiring people, then Printavo’s 2020 PrintHustlers Conf is where you want to be.

Where: Ace Hotel in Chicago
When: July 24-25, just after the ASI Chicago show.
What: A gathering of the industry’s finest for candid discussions and solution building (and some fun, too)

Curious to see what PrintHustlers Conf is like? Check out PrintHustlers Conf 2019 on YouTube with last year’s presentations and breakout sessions or read our in-depth recap of PrintHustlers 2019. Also, a huge thanks to M&R for sponsoring 2019's PrintHustlers!

Tickets are selling faster this year than they were last year. We sold out nearly 45 days before the conference last year.

But you don’t have to take our word for it. Here’s what they told us last year: 

“Printavo’s PrintHustlers Conf is the best event we have attended for the last 2 years. The speakers have been great and have helped us in so many areas. We also appreciate the connections that we have made through this conference. It is obvious from attending that this event is not designed to make money off of those attending, but is truly an event created to help us and improve our industry. Printavo is really making a difference in our industry. Keep it up!"
