My web guy and I have a question. I sell wood products including 8 models of recipe boxes. http://www.tylermorriswoodworking.com/pages/recipeboxes I offer custom engraving, which is a $10 line item that customers add to their cart. I would like to receive an order for the $80 box, $10 engraving AND what they would like engraved, like, "Mom's recipes". My question is where can a customer notify me of their custom engraving? Thanks in advance. Tyler Morris

Hi Tyler,

There is an article in the Shopify Wiki that describes how to do this: Ask customer for additional information.

Cheers, Gavin.

I think what you are asking for will need to be done with javascript similar to what Caroline did with multiple product options before they were standard in Shopify.

I am assuming you want the custom engraving to show up under the product specified… as in, if you have multiple custom products they each show what the lettering will be.

I am working on this solution as it pertains to a project I am doing as we speak, with the same situation. I may end up hiring Caroline, Jamie, Ryan, Gavin or any number of the helpful people here.

I added custom engraving to puplife a month ago.

Example of a product: http://www.puplife.com/collections/mhound-dog-tags/products/mhound-sterling-silver-dog-bone-dog-id-t...

Different products have different types of engraving, ie. different number of text fields, with different maximum number of characters, etc. My code engine is smart and flexible.

Hi,

About 24 moons ago I added swanky engraving code to http://www.lucyann.ca too. Amazing that code still runs after all this time. If only I knew then what I know now, I’d do it different.

Nonetheless, you can see how you can do engraving with a little javascript know-how. Contrast and compare. Caroline does nice work.

Gavin, is there any way the wiki’s proposed solution can be implemented on the product page instead? I followed the wiki’s instructions but added it to my product.liquid isntead, but I get the feeling the ‘note’ and ‘parameters’ aren’t passed onto the cart.

No. This is where you would need to do some extra javascript stuff as Mark and others have mentioned. I wrote a tutorial about it, and I know Caroline’s solution is pretty sweet as well.

Gavin, your tutorial is a bit over my head since I’m not familiar with javascript and am brand new to liquid, but thanks for posting that. I hope to learn more about both over the next few months so I’m sure I’ll revisit it.

In the meantime I hired Caroline for this fix (urgent deadline) and could not be more pleased with her work.
