We happy to announce Case Monkey now lets you design your own iPhone 6 case! Head over to check it out before the big announcement tomorrow!
Custom Disc Golf Discs, Ultimate Frisbee Discs, and Frisbees!
Ever wanted a custom disc golf disc? Us too! So we went ahead and launched the latest super cool MyStyle Site: Fly Discs – Design Your Own Disc Golf Disc!
This is another one of our signature sites and we’re really proud of how well its turned out, (not to mention how cool our discs look!) We partnered with some of the top brands to make sure that every disc from our site is top quality and ready for course. This was one of first sites to go live with the mobile HTML5 customizer at the same time and we love the site design. A completely circular product makes for some interesting designs and we’ve already seen some great ones using everything from spirals to pepperoni pizzas. Definitely a great site to check if you’ve ever wanted a custom disc or ultimate disc and we’re confident this has to be one of the cooler brands in customization. FORE!
We’re excited to announce the launch of our new product customizer for mobile web! We’re pushing the boundaries of HTML5 and web tech to bring mobile customization and mobile personalization to the MyStyle Platform. You’ll see our new mobile product design tool rolling out across many of our sites as we test the waters and launch new features. So far so good and the designs are looking great. If you want to see it in action head over to design your own skateboard on your phone at Whatever Skateboards or try it out by getting your phone pictures printed on canvas and MakeCanvasPrints.
Screenshots of Our Mobile Customizer
Want to take a peek at our mobile customizer? Here’s a few screenshots we snapped so you can take a look:
So… What’s It Like? How Are The Designs?
We’ve tested this on multiple devices and the experience is great on both phones and tablets. We’re super happy with the performance on iPhone 5 and iPads in particular and the experience is the the current best in class. We’ll be adding more spice to our mobile customizer coming soon; new features are on their way! It is definitely exciting to see mobile tech and HTML5 break through previous performance and UX barriers to become a viable option for mobile customization apps and mobile personalization apps. The designs on the products coming out look great!
What Products Are Available?
Using our MyStyle API we’re able to provide nearly our entire product catalog from all manufacturers and printers to be designed on cell phones and other devices. That’s a staggering number of products that are live for people to design! We have to admit, its pretty fun to try the mobile customizer so give it a whirl and let us know what you think.
We’re always launching new products and sites here at MyStyle but we recently launched with Bella Moulding, the leader in framing, using some tech we’re particularly proud of: a frames customizer! This is the first time we’ve ever seen a frames customizer being used in the wild and the Prima frames they’re used to make look awesome. Its no surprise that industry leader in framing and framing technology used MyStyle to power their customization solution. While the frames customizer is for Bella Moulding customers only here are a few screenshots to show off our cool work…
Custom Metal, Glass, and Wood Prints!
Looking to get a custom metal, glass, or wood print? Look no further than the latest edition to our MyStyle partner sites: MPS Prints!
Built using the MyStyle Platform and using both MyStyle custom products and the MyStyle Site format MPS Prints is one of our newest and shiniest MyStyle sites. Currently our only site displaying two new personalized products available through the platform, glass prints and metal prints, MPS showcases some of the best features of the platform. We’re especially proud of the way the metal prints turn out; if you’re looking for a professional or long lasting personal gift we highly recommend taking a look at the metal prints on MPS Prints.
MyStyle & Coveroo
Coveroo has launched their customization integration with MyStyle! This is huge news for the platform as Coveroo is one of the largest names in customization and custom printing & fulfillment. They’ve also been a long term, top-tier partner with MyStyle for a number of projects and products including offering a wide assortment of cell phone cases for customization on a number of MyStyle sites including our flagship site Case Monkey! Check out Coveroo’s custom cell phone case integration under their “Create” link on Coveroo.com.
As a leader in the customization space we couldn’t be happier to be powering part of the Coveroo product customization process. One of the best parts of partnering with Coveroo is their ability to custom print on nearly any product for any manufacturer. This extends well outside of the cell phone cases they are best known for and includes a huge variety of products for many manufacturers. If you are a manufacturer looking to get in to customization but are trying to find the perfect printing and fulfillment partner Coveroo will be your best choice.
Finally a way to find the best designs!
Happy Valentine’s Day! We happy to announce a new feature that we rolled out MyStyle Websites: ratings! Now designs can have a 5 star rating and you can view the very best designs as rated by users. This was an important feature for us because we see a lot of awesome designs come through our customizer and yet there wasn’t a great place to actually view all the best designs. Now that we’ve got ratings out you’ll start seeing a lot more featured content featuring our favorite designs.
Here’s some links…
Case Monkey – The best phone case designs
Whatever Skateboards – The best skateboard designs
Custom Car Wraps – The best car wrap designs
MakeCanvasPrints – The best canvas print designs
PlakThat – The best wood print designs
We just posted a new site profile page for Case Monkey. If you want to read a little more about that site click here. We’ll be posting more site profiles for the other sites soon!
Cats + Lasers FTW
One of the best parts of MyStyle is seeing the creative and incredible art and products that are made using using our platform. This skateboard is exactly one of those situations and we had to share it here on our MyStyle blog. Using the MyStyle platform running over at Whatever Skateboards to design their own skateboard one of our genius friends created this masterpiece which has to be seen to be believed…
Actual Printed Skateboard
Original Design on Website
YEP. Cat on a skateboard deck shooting laser beams from its eyes. Does it get any better than that? We submit that is does not and thusly why we dubbed this the great skateboard ever made. And it was made with MyStyle using the MyStyle Customizer and the MyStyle API. Here’s a link to the original design on Whatever Skateboards – design your own skateboard
You Want The New Jams? HERE IS THE NEW JAMS.
Hot off the presses and tearing up this West Coast Art and Frame 2014 is the latest and greatest in personalization technology: a frame customizer. If you’re out in Vegas for this year’s show be sure to roam around and find our demo. To keep you satisfied if you couldn’t make it out this year we’ve dropped some screenshots in to this article for you.
Why Is This Cool?
This is the only frames customizer. The. only. one. The reason is simply that a frames customizer is too difficult to program. Our specialty here at MyStyle is taking on new R&D projects is customization and even this one was a huge challenge for us. Thankfully we have a lot of experience in this space and have worked with the best partners in the industry. While this isn’t quite ready for full public release it is live and working at WCAF 2014 and you can design your own frame.
Since When Does MyStyle Do Expos and Tradeshows?
Since Day 1! Our tech is regularly featured on large screens, kiosks, laptop, and any other way you can demo a product at a tradeshow. If you’ve seen a demo of a designer or design tool, or even if you just designed your own product at a booth, odds are it was running on MyStyle and you didn’t even know it. Our tech is a staple of the tradeshow circuit and a proven win when it comes to making a splash with a memorable booth. Contact us to hear what we can do for your next industry event!
Taking Personalization and Customization to New Industries
I’m not sure if we could be more excited for upcoming demo launch this week! While we can’t spill the beans on it quite yet we can at least tell you to keep your eyes peeled for MyStyle powering a brand new customization solution. There’s always something exciting about launching customization and personalization in new verticals and industries. That relentless pursuit of the next best thing is what keeps us pushing the forefront of customization tech and this upcoming demo this week will prove no exception. We’ll keep you posted on it here on our blog when we’re ready for the big reveal!
What Do You Call That App?
It goes by many names, but it turns out there isn’t a common word for the type of app we call our MyStyle Customizer™. Lots of people contact us asking about our “Customizer”, but a lot of people also ask if we have a customizer but just don’t know the right word to describe it.
Here’s some of the phrases we’ve seen that describe what we here call our MyStyle Customizer.
MyStyle Customizer Names:
- design editor
- design tool
- personalization editor
- photo editor
- photo manipulator
- product editor
- image maker
- image editor
- picture maker
- preview tool
- product preview
- print preview
- design app
- editing app
- customization app
- image uploader
- customization app
- text editor
- personalization software
What is the Mystyle Customizer?
Our customizer is the visual tool that people use to create new designs on their products. Our customizer is extremely diverse and comes in many different forms. At times the customizer may only be a simple upload or text field and at other times the customizer is a full blown visual UI/UX for creating customized and personalized products. This is one of the key parts involved in personalization and customization because for every app, every product, every design, and every person is everything can be different. That is also why there are so many ways of describing a customizer.
Customizers are typically contained within an exterior website, application, kiosk, or display case and are a subsection of an overall customization or personalization website. In many cases people using our customization app are actually using it on other people’s websites! This can also make it hard to define precisely where the boundaries are on the MyStyle Customizer as it is seamlessly integrated with existing solutions.
There are always new ways of describing this type of app because there is no standard word for it! With all these options we wanted a single word that describes it best and went with customizer. So whether you’re looking for a “designer” or a “print previewer” or an “image maker” you’ve come to the right place. But around these parts we just call it the Mystyle Customizer :-)
