Hi,

 

I want to start a webshop with childbooks, where customers can customize the main character of the book by haircolor,skin, eyecolor etc.

Is there an app that can do this or is this not do able on shopify?

So the storybook is already made by me, customers can only change the characters look & name.

Hey, @Ley1987 

 

Great question. This would in fact be possible by utilizing a Product Customizer app that you can install into your Shopify store. This will give customers the ability to customize your product (the book) by filling out information that will be forwarded to you when the order is processed.

 

Check out Custom product builder or Kickflip product customizer as these apps should suit your needs. If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

@Dirk thank you for your response. Can this also be automated to be adjusted simultaneously on every page of the book? Or would I have to manually adjust the book with each order? I mainly see Shopify apps applied to a single product, but the book has multiple pages that need to be modified. Manually would be too much of a work.

Great question. If you sell a product, let's say it's called "Adventure Book" and then you use one of these customizer apps. You will be able to set that particular Adventure book that gets customized. It would be on you to determine how you are publishing/producing the product to match the customers customized features.

 

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Hi Ley 1987,

Have you considered creating a product customizer? It would allow your customers to see a live preview of their personalization on your product. Your client can customize the main character and preview the final product. If this is something you're interested in, I recommend trying Kickflip. It's an easy-to-user platform that would enable you to offer that type of experience in no time!

 

I encourage you to check out this Youtube channel to see the solution in action. You can even try it for free by creating your account here.

 

Do not hesitate to contact us at help@gokickflip.com if you have any questions!

Hello @Ley1987,

Hope you're doing well.

If you want to customize the hair color, skin, eye color, etc of any main character of your childbook then you can the Inkybay - Product Personalizer app. Feel free to contact me to go through the demo product.Custom Mug-Inkybay.png
