You can create up to 100 products with the click of your mouse. You can use any of the Zazzle merchandise combination “Default Zazzle Product Lines” menu options to generate a set of products using your design, or text or you can create your own selection of merchandise to produce a custom Product Line.
The Zazzle Default Product Lines contain a choice of groupings of related merchandise items you can use in Quick Product Create to make your products. These merchandise selections are designed to meet the needs of most contributors. If you don’t want some of the products in the group, you can delete them in the next step. If the Zazzle Default Product Lines meet your needs, great. No need to read further. For a complete list of the products included in each of the Zazzle Default Product Lines, see “Which Zazzle products can I create using Quick Product Create?”
If you are interested in creating a custom set of products you can use and re-use as a merchandise inventory for Quick Product Create, you can do that, too. It’s not hard, but you need to know a bit about how Quick Product Create works.
You can create any set of products by creating a Product Line containing the merchandise selection you want. Your Product Lines containing template products will appear in the Choose products to create menu, under, “My Product Lines”. Each product created must be based on an existing template product. The number of template products in the Product Line you choose determines the number of products created. The particular product merchandise for which you have templates determines the particular products produced for that Product Line. The particular template area in your product determines the template area in the product to be created. All template products in your Product Line must contain the same template fields and the template fields must have the same Product page label and URL parameter name.
One new product is produced for each template product present in the selected Product Line. For example, if your Product Line contains 25 mugs with no editable template fields, 25 profile card template products, 25 t-shirts with template fields allowing the customer to add a text slogan, and 25 greeting cards with text template fields allowing the customer to add a greeting, Quick Product Create will produce 75 products, consisting of 25 t-shirts, 25 profile cards, and 25 greeting cards. The mugs are ignored since they are not template products.
It’s a good idea to examine each product you create using Quick Product Create individually. Some products may require slight adjustments to placement, size, or other aspects of your design as it appears on a particular product. Some product templates are not appropriate for all designs. For example, a poster template may be designed for an image that is wider than it is tall. If the design you are using in Quick Product Create is taller than it is wide, part of your image may be clipped.
