With the pandemic forcing everyone to adapt to what is called the “new normal” it is inevitable that the United States and other countries will have to accept face masks as a much more common part of life than ever before.
Giving Back to Help in the Pandemic with Personalized Masks: 50% of Mask Profits to Pandemic Focused Charitable Donations
1CustomFaceMask.com has teamed up with MyStyle Platform to provide not only a fun way to personalize your own masks, but also to aid in the mission to give back to the charities that are helping out the most in the pandemic. For this goal, they have committed to giving 50% of all profits to pandemic aid charities like Feeding America.
1CustomFaceMask.com Launches Custom Face Mask Designer Powered By MyStyle Platform
MyStyle is a great choice for a product like a custom face mask, because it has all the main ingredients a customer will want to use. Background colors and graphics, custom images, uploaded images, and custom text. 1CustomFaceMask.com is live now with MyStyle enabling users to design their own custom face masks on the site in minutes with ease.
No More Boring Flimsy Masks!
Boring, single-color medical looking face masks may have been the first wave of masks in the US, but quickly they have become much more. Now more than ever, the market is in high demand for not only face coverings to where to the store, etc, but also for these face coverings to be more fashionable as they become part of your everyday wardrobe.
Fashionable Mask Trends Around the World
Asian countries have already had these customs for years, mostly because of air pollution, but nevertheless have adapted and have shown interesting fashion trends in the face mask world.
Helping People Have Fun with Face Masks
We hope that not only will personalization enable the world to embrace custom face masks in to their own fashion in a way that encourages and makes social distancing and safety measures more fun to participate in.

The backgrounds browser is Step 1 in almost all MyStyle apps for good reason. It’s an easy step that anyone can do and doesn’t require any content from the user, only choices. It’s fun and shows what you can do quickly and provides instant gratification to users by giving them great colors and stock backgrounds to choose from to get them on their way to creating an awesome design that they love.
The Issue with Long Lists and Pagination
The only problem is, sometimes digging through that backgrounds library seemed daunting and unorganized, and naturally the images at the very end of the list didn’t get very much action (very few people press previous page first to go through the list in reverse order, almost everyone just goes page 1, 2, 3 etc). So this UX needed to be updated to make it easier to find the content you love in the BG library. Well, that’s where the Category browser comes in.
Enter the Library Category Browser
We’ve launched a new and improved component recently that is already proving to give users more control to get design they love. Now in step 1 when you browse backgrounds, you’re greeted with a scrolling single page list of thumbnails that represent each category, and are labeled as such to make it easy to understand what each category tile is a collection of. Now, a customer can see “Fine Art” for example without ever having to click to a next page, and they can click that to see our collection of great fine art images without having to dig through a whole list to find them. This is way easier and more fun, and immediately makes it so much faster to create a design you already start to like in the first step.
Live and Doing Great!
This feature automatically updates in your app so you should already have it live on your own MyStyle enabled sites if you have a Step 1 for backgrounds (it’s the default, so you probably do).
Stats Show Increased Performance
We’ve already seen an increase in the amount of designs and purchases that make use of background assets that we do not normally see many sales on. This is the proof that the new feature is getting used on designs that make it all the way through to sale, and that customers are happier than ever using MyStyle to personalize their designs with our collections of free graphics.

Today we’re pilot testing a new feature update for the improving the custom text tool to easily allow the user to create custom text on multiple lines, rather than having to add them one line at a time as it’s always been in the past. The feature will still yield to single-line text as the default text tool, as it’s simpler and works better for many products that way. But, you can elect to upgrade to the multiple-line text tool for no extra cost. Both versions are supported by the desktop MyStyle Customizer at this time.
Poems, Song Lyrics, Quotes and Passages Welcome!
We see a lot of custom text designs created all the time, and the biggest need for this new multi-line text tool has got to be for Poems, Song Lyrics, or Quotes and Passages where there are anywhere from 5 to 50 lines of text. These designs previously would really take a long time to create one line at a time, and getting the line spacing and alignments even was really tough unless you have a really great eye for detail. Now, using the new tool, all of that is eliminated and the alignments and line heights will all be automatic. Just drop your poem or long paragraph into the new feature and you’re done when it comes to line spacing and alignments.
Multi-Line Text as Easy as Can Be
The new feature update has really made it super easy to control a paragraph of custom text. When you type in the text editor, simply press “enter” as you would in any word processor to break one line to the next. Then, you can use the Left, Center, and Right buttons to align the paragraph to any one of those settings. Other than that, it’s the same old awesome text features that were always available, including lots of great fonts, custom colors, advanced effects like dropshadow and glow.
Try Out New Multi-Line Text
To try out the new feature, head over to the best Custom Canvas Print site on the web, MakeCanvasPrints.com
MyStyle website Custom-Car-Wraps.com, a leader in the industry for customers to create mockups of vehicle wraps quickly and easily online, has introduced new products including custom magnets. This is a big shift for the company whose previous focus was entirely wraps and searching out wrap shops from their directory.
A Very Affordable Alternative
This new product offering from CCW is really a perfect fit for the business owner or marketer who is exploring vehicle advertising, but doesn’t want to shell out the $1000 to $10,000 that a full vehicle warp is well known to cost. Instead, a custom printed magnet like the ones they are offering now brings a whole new price point that just about anyone can afford, $50 or even less for a smaller size. If you’ve been wanting to do a vehicle wrap or ad and a wrap has just been out of your budget, then a custom magnet is a perfect solution for you.
Custom Magnets Are Reusable
Another great advantage of using magnetic signage for vehicle advertising is that they are completely removable, reusable, and easily applied to any metal surface like a car door without needing any installation help. It’s a true DIY product. With a magnet, you’re able to use it with any vehicle you want, whenever you want, saving a lot of money. Going to work – slap it on. Going on a date? Take it off! Any self-employed service or business owner can really appreciate that flexibility to have a branded vehicle advertisement exactly when you want it.
Design Your Own
As with any MyStyle product, the Custom Magnets that are available now on Custom-Car-Wraps.com are easily designed online in minutes. Adding your own logo, some eye catching colors, some custom text or contact info and a web address, are all super easy and can be done by just about anyone without any need for photoshop or any design software knowledge. It’s easy, quick, and free to design and save as many as you want!
Making Canvas Wraps Easier Than Ever with this Awesome New Feature: 3D Wrap Views
We’re happy to announce the availability of a new feature for Canvas Wraps Customizer (or any custom rectangular printed product where the graphic wraps around the squared edges). The 3D Wrap view helps users understand instantly where the “bleed” and “wrap” zones are instantly, without having to think about what a “bleed” is or read the help bubble trying to explain the concept. This makes accuracy of print images increase significantly, as many users previously were a bit confused about where their text should and shouldn’t go.
3 Automatic View Modes In Customization
The feature consists of automatically switching between a 3D-Wrap View, a 2-D Full Template view including outer bleed/wrap areas, and the final Cropped Straight-On View. The first two, the 3D wrap view and the 2D Full Template view, switches back and forth automatically as the user works on their design. When they mouse over the canvas, they see the full view, to position their objects inside the red bleed/wrap guide line, keeping their text inside the “safe zone”. When they reach step 4 to complete their order, the outer areas of both views are cropped off and hidden to show the final product straight on, eliminating any question of what will be cut off around the edges vs on the front face of the canvas. This final straight on view sends thru as their main image, staying consistent with the traditional artwork view that is expected on art print and canvas sites.
DPI, Accuracy, Inches & Pixels
Our manufacturers’ specs are met to the inch and pixel with exact settings to ensure accuracy. Users can’t be bothered with understanding DPI, PPI, bleed in inches, or any of that. The information is there for them in a help bubble if they are curious, but really they want to know what they see on screen is what they get in the mail, and that’s exactly what our accuracy can ensure.
Try It Out at MakeCanvasPrints
Our Beta release is testing now on MakeCanvasPrints.com – perhaps the easiest custom canvas print design tool on the web today. MCP enables happy customers who design their own canvas prints with photos, effects, and tons of cool custom text additions every single day:

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.
