"Best custom apparel all in one e-commerce solution "

What do you like best?

With Deconetwork, building a custom apparel e-commerce website is a breeze. I have been with DecoNetwork since 2010 and I found it the best Web-to-Print solution for print shops who sell custom t-shirts, signage and other promotional products. Its Business hub has all the functionalities which a print shop owner requires from getting the print-ready artworks to sending the custom quotes to clients. Deconetwork team is continuously working on keeping themselves acquainted with latest trends and technologies on the web, with the upcoming update to Deco 8, their system will become the most powerful solution for printing industry as they introduce mobile responsive online designer & drag and drop widgets to easily customise the website pages and many orther features.

What do you dislike?

It is the most difficult question to answer as deconetwork fulfils all my requirements as a custom apparel printer. It would be best if it can also be integrated with other e-commerce platforms like Magento or WooCommerce.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Sending custom quotes to clients

"DecoNetwork is the complete solution for Online Printing Business"

What do you like best?

Before using DecoNetwork we tried other similar online designers plugins for Magento and Prestashop but we were always busy in configuring the products, software setup, hosting, troubleshooting etc. and wasting lot of time on making it live rather than giving time to our main printing business. But now with DecoNetwork, we have fewer worries about the website, third-party plugins, hosting, troubleshooting, etc and we are more productive and successful in running our business.

What do you dislike?

Nothing in particular, They are always listening to customer feedback and get ideas for new features development from its users. There is always need for improvement but nothing to dislike ;

Recommendations to others considering the product

give it a try. you would be happy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I would say Business Hub is the most powerful feature of DecoNetwork. Its easy to use and have lot of features specifically designed for apparel and decoration industry. It also gives seamless production management workflow from quote to shipping. We have tried almost all similar solutions but found DecoNetwork the complete solution for our needs.

The next best thing in DecoNetwork is their support which is quick and always available to help.

"DecoNetwork Is A Complete Solution For Decorated Apparel Business"

What do you like best?

It completely streamlines your business. The initial draw is to be online, but it's MUCH more than that. DecoNetwork provides you with a backend they call the Hub. From there you manage orders from all your stores, even if it just operate one. I operate 2 primary sites and a few smaller ones. It allows you to manage everything you need (off the top of my head): payment methods (credit cards, PayPal, direct wire, custom terms, N30, whatever you want), Statements, supplier product lines, EDI purchasing, customer discounts, customer store assignments, production management steps (purchasing, receiving, art approval, production, shipping), email notifications to customers for steps I mentioned, all history is recorded for you & customer to see (orders, quotes, notes, emails, confirmations, tracking, etc), private internal notes for order/quotes, customer statements, numerous notification options (payment requests, general emails, etc), customization of all system emails & order/quote/art approval templates, production operator assignments, multiple user rights (assign roles: admin, sales, accounting, production, art, etc), production overview (see all orders at a glance and all the status of each dept), Live shipping Methods (UPS, FedEx, USPS), custom shipping methods, complete supplier catalogs with correct data (skus, weights, costs - Alpha, SanMar, etc), Assign profit margin based on supplier cost, shipping based on true product weights, assign print areas to ALL products in single setting or individually, Smart Select rules automatically assign what decorating methods are allowed on products (think about one setting that removes DTG from all poly blends or buttons, numerous criteria), setup all your decorating price tables to be added to blank products (for each method, screen, dtg, embroidery, sublimation, transfer, rhinestone), customize color pallet & fonts avail for each method, customize product defaults (lets you change all settings for different set of products), product defaults can be overridden on individual products, abandoned cart retrieval (followup with email, convert to quote or order), quotes convert to order (by you or customer, easy check out.

Bottom line: even if you never get an online order, everything is managed through the cloud. You can enter an order knowing your product costs are accurate, with proper decorating price applied based on (qty, colors, stitches, etc), then click to email a quote or order, click to mark production steps complete, then click to email shipping tracking & invoice. If customers are not on terms they click to pay before order proceeds. It's awesome. Oh yeah, you can either batch or individually order the products from suppliers with the click of a button. Killer. One more thing, customer can place reorders (and modify them) and so can you from the Hub. Even start a new quote/order and access previous orders, layouts, etc)

As for websites, everything meshes with how you setup products etc. Customers can easily find their account area to view (order, quotes, art approvals, saved layouts, statements, payments, etc)

Web design is completely customizable and now with the latest version 8, it's truly a drag & drop page designer. Completely responsive on all devices, including the designer. It's superior to anything else available. The designer was great and just became unbeatable.

What do you dislike?

I don't like to see inaccurate reviews. I've been using DecoNetwork for 8 years. The only issue I find HAD merit was web design. The templates WERE stale. BUT they could be made responsive & beautiful. I did it. Others did it. If you can't do it, hire someone - that's business. But that argument is no longer relevant - DecoNetwork site design is SUPERB.

Don't be fooled. What DecoNetwork users have known for years is that the robust backend is the secret to success. With DecoNetwork you have to spend a lot of time setting up your system - that's not a dislike, it's called managing your business (something only you can do)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at the major competitors first, like Inksoft, then get a demo of DecoNetwork. There is no comparison.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I pretty much said it above, but in a nutshell: Standardized all my pricing, production settings, payment methods, shipping methods for extremely quick, consistent & accurate processing of quotes & orders. I can process the workload of what literally required 4 employees. I've been in business for 30 years, with 8 automatics, and dozens of employees - I cannot imagine surviving or keeping my sanity without it.

"A Fantastic All in One Online Store Solution!"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, and jam packed with features to help you get your business off the ground.

From Sales all the way to Production management, the DecoNetwork platform has simplified the process of managing your online business. Get up running in no time. Oh and did I tell you how great their support network is? Well, it's second to none!

What do you dislike?

Hmmm, hard question. The DecoNetwork platform has come a long way since the early days of inception and it just gets better and better with every new release. Updates are FREE by the way.

Currently the platform doesn't offer Responsive templates but I believe this will be available in the new release due out any day now.

"Don't use DecoNetwork unless you want to build a website"

What do you like best?

The idea of deconetwork. I wish they could just implement some responsive website templates.

What do you dislike?

I really dislike the fact that deconetwork uses a demo site that is relatively responsive on mobile, but all of their templates require massive overhauls to bring into this decade. Oh, and guess what, once you edit the html or css, they no longer support their templates.

They clearly don't offer a free trial because they know they will get lots of you to sign up for one month thinking you can get up and running quickly with a professional presence for your company. They know that isn't possible, so they get what they can while they can.

If you can handle massive coding or think your customers don't mind zooming and moving all over your site to read it on their mobile devices give them your money. But be warned, they won't give it back when they don't deliver what they promise in their advertising.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't use deconetwork unless you are skilled in web development or are willing to pay for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I never launched this project because the website is unsatisfactory, and we chose not to represent ourselves with this subpar product.

"I used deconetwork to sell custom t-shirts online as a direct to garment printing company."

What do you like best?

It offers quick and relatively cheap entry into e-commerce custom t-shirt design with an online t-shirt design tool for your customers.

What do you dislike?

While the upfront cost of setting up an e-commerce business with deconetwork is relatively small, you pay for it in the long run due to limited ability to customize the site to your liking. In my opinion, they are more interested in selling their custom design services to you than they are interested in helping you sell t-shirts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It seems to me that deconetwork is made for t-shirt decorators who already have an existing brick and mortar location who wishes to dabble in e-commerce. Despite the claims that you have full access to the html and css, you have to spend a large amount of time to override the existing framework and it is often impossible to configure the site in a way that optimizes the user experience. I found it impossible to configure the site in a way that I found acceptable for my customers. If I had been willing to pay for their design services, I'm sure that they would have been able to configure it the way I wanted.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main benefit that I saw was the low cost of entry. I was able to set up a fully functional e-commerce site in a relatively short period of time. The online design tool was html5 based rather than flash based as many of their competitors. This made it possible for mobile users to try the designer on their phone if they wanted.

"Deconetwork was not easy to use."

What do you like best?

I like it best that it is easy to set up for purchasing garments for customers.

What do you dislike?

I dislike a lot of things about it. One thing being that they do not offer website coding anymore, another being that all of your "stores" you set up are linked somehow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the simplicity of customers buying our product. I have yet to realize any benefits.
