Manage blank inventory for print on demand business

We are a clothing company that prints in-house on-demand. We stock unprinted blanks and only print on them when orders are placed. For example we have 10 green, short-sleeve t-shirts and offer 2 different designs on that green blank. If I sell 5 of each design I would like both designs to reflect out of stock since our blanks will be gone.

 

Basically, I'm trying to find a way to have multiple products affect the same base inventory (our blanks) whenever there is a purchase, and have the blank inventory reflect availability of the products that use it.

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

As shopify doesn't allow such variant twisting in their default setup. You should hire a developer and let them play around to make your thoughts work. This is kind of a customizations work which can't be done using simple statement, it needs to be coded.

 

Let me know if any.

Thank you

I already have reached out to a developer friend, thanks.

 

I was curious if there was a simpler solution.

Hello @Lisa1223 ,

 

There's few coding solutions to show multiple variants [More then Shopify's variant limit] in single product. You have to hire a developer to discuss the needs  and code it in your theme.

Let me know if there's anything else I can help with.

 

Thank you
