Activate for one of your products

In order to activate the Printlane Designer for one of your products, you need to navigate to Catalog - Manage products and add/edit a product.

  • Set the SKU of the product. This is important: The sku of your Magento product needs to be the same as the Template ID in Printlane Studio. If not we're unable to link your product with the correct template.
  • Optionally, enter a Printlane ID. This value will be used instead of the SKU if it is not empty
  • Choose yes in the Enable Printlane Customize switcher
  • save the product
  • Visit the product's detail page in your Magento store. The add to cart button should be replaced with the value of the Add To Cart Button Name setting and the designer should open when clicking on it.


Did your Add to cart button not change to a Customize button? Please contact Printlane using the Printlane website.
