Go from Web to Print in Seconds
Render, edit, adjust, and save for print as high-resolution all in one place.
What Is The MyStyle Renderer?
The MyStyle Renderer is used to create print-ready files from designs made online by customers that used the Customizer to create their own designs. This allows the Customizer to be lightweight and work with mobile users, and all devices responsively, while the print renderer works with HD (high-resolutions) and layouts that are ready for print production.
Key Features for Smooth, Fast, High-Quality Print Production Workflows:
Download Print Files Consistently. +Resize On the Fly When Needed!
Render print files that are the right size and resolution needed for your print requirements every time!
Special one-off print size? No problem, change the size of the print right in the Renderer for one-off special prints.
Unlimited Renders Forever. Designs Never Go Bad!
Load and render designs from our cloud storage unlimited times.
If you change the spec, no problem, it will always render the print file at the current print spec, even if it changed after the design was originally made.
Multi-Part Print Files
Does your print file require combining multiple sides, parts, or canvases together into 1?
We can customize templates to combine as many sides as needed into 1 image, or, produce all sides as separate images. We can even support rotations per side within each image!
Intuitive Editing Controls
Use the toolbar of quick tools, macros, filters, and more. Right-click objects for object-specific editing. Drag and drop objects. Scale objects. Do it all with ease!
Dark / Light Themes
The dark theme makes editing images less strenuous on the eyes. It also makes it easier to see the image if the image is dark.
Zoom Controls & Rulers
Check details with the zoom features. Zoom the print to fit your screen, or go to full size to see every last pixel.
The Rulers on the left and top of each print image will show you the correct measurement of the image at the DPI listed.
Downloading & Opening Print Files At Print Size & DPI
Download Your Print Files Ready for Print
Downloading the print file, once you’ve verified it’s ready to go, is easy!
Just click “JPG” to download the flattened high-def, full-quality raster JPG image in a new tab.
SVG with Layers
If you need the SVG, it can be downloaded opened with Illustrator
Print File JPGs Open At The Correct Resolution!
This one is somewhat of a miracle if you’ve dealt with this issue before. When the Renderer produces high-resolution, raster JPGs, say at 300DPI, and you open them in Photoshop or a Rip or printing software, they open up AT 300 DPI! It’s a miracle! The same goes for 100 dpi, 200 dpi, 600 dpi, 137 dpi, it doesn’t matter! Whatever your print spec is, any DPI can be set up for your templates and it will just work!
Getting Started: Render a Customer Design
It’s easy, and only takes seconds! There are a couple ways to go about this, both are pretty straightforward:
- Click Any Render Link for Any Design
Click any render link from your WordPress back end admin. These can be found for any design in the Design Manager, or in any WooCommerce Order under “MyStyle Data > Render”.Note: If you have a custom integration, your render links might be found in your ERP system, or your order processing or shipping system such as ShipStation, OrderDesk, Sterling OMS, etc.
- Render by Design ID
You can go directly to the Renderer, choose “Render > from Design ID” and enter the design ID for any design created by one of your users, and it will render the print file to-spec in HD for you. This is essentially manually passing along what any render link would have already in the URL – the design ID.
Use Compare Tool to Spot Differences from Web / Device to Print to Ensure Quality and Accuracy Instantly
The first stop as you scroll down beneath the status windows for a print render, is the Web Comparison. This lines up the user’s original design snapshot, next to the print file render, at the same scales.
Then, they can be “switched” with the button in the toolbar labeled “switch” to see if design elements line up or shift or change at all. This is the fastest possible way to spot any differences in emojis, fonts, or any other difference or anomaly the user may have on their device that is different from the computer doing the print render. Most of the time, the comparison will just visually verify that the Render is correct and ready for print.
Print Image Needs an Adjustment? Render & Edit In One Place. No Photoshop / Illustrator Needed!
One of the best parts of the Renderer is the editing toolbar. So, if you do spot anything different between the user’s original design, and the print render design, or the order had a request for a modification, etc, you have a number of options that are common auto-corrections for mistakes customers have, or requests customers make for the order to fix it up nice and quick.
This can include mirroring an image to cover edges, editing text, moving design elements away from bleed lines or edges, shrinking or expanding the design all at once, swap an image, change a font, and many other “quick fixes”.
On top of that, you can manually edit the design and drag and drop or scale objects, to adjust them if needed. This speeds up the workflow and removes the need for additional graphic design software to get a print ready for production.
What If We Change Our Print Specs a Year or Two Later? Will Old Designs Break?
As long as it’s the same number of “sides” in the template, it will be fine and old designs will work with new / changed print specs. Your license covers maintenance on existing templates like this if you have new print specs for an old product, we’ll update it for you, just send us the specs.
Here’s the process:
If you change your print specs, send them to us via your support options, and we’ll update your template code with the new sizes or adjustments. Once your print specs are changed, if you go back and render an old design from past customers, it will automatically render the design according to the new print spec.
This way, old designs never go bad, and can always be used with new products, or new specs for old products!
Client Feedback & Support
Your Renderer Feedback After Launch
Nothing tests the system like the real users! As a result, your feedback and communication with our Customer Support staff regarding print file accuracy and compatibility will be crucial to supporting any aspects of your products or your customers designs that pushes the boundaries of mobile web compatibility.

If you come across a print file that cannot be rendered, you can and should create a Jira ticket or open a ticket with MyStyle Support. We will correct the issue permanently or fix and send you the print file correctly ourselves.
This process of ironing out any special design cases that might come from the unique nature of more complex products is normal, especially for 30-60 days after launch.
