1. THE BEGINNING

This innovation initially came to life when…

This innovation initially came to life when I became frustrated with data entry to my design templates on my online personalised canvas and prints store. I had designs which people could supply me their personal data to customise the designs. I would create proofs, have them approved then create the print, package and ship or forward the artwork to manufacturers to create the canvas. I wasn’t feeling creatively challenged. I thought why not create an app that has the design templates to input data themselves, see the proof within the app, make payment, printed and shipped to them directly.

2. WHAT & HOW

The purpose of this innovation is to…

The purpose of this innovation is to create personalised prints, quotes + invites from a contemporary urban designer range with an RSVP tracker sent digitally or professionally printed to card and canvas.

It does this by…

It does this by allowing the user to enter their own data/own images into the design templates and creating a proof which they can then send digitally or pay for a print/s or canvas/s. Their creations are able to be shared on all popular social media ports and via sms or email.

3. PURPOSE & BENEFITS

4. COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

In the past, this problem was solved by…

In the past, this problem was solved by having them ordered online rather than within an app. A designer would have to receive the order online then process it, seek proof approval and then have it printed via a third party, so a much longer process.

Its predecessors/competitors include…

It’s predecessors/competitors include paperless post. Who have a simple solution both online and in an app form. However they don’t have the entire process completed in the app, they do part online. They also don’t have the canvas printing option.
