RESOURCE TABS – Black Menu Bar

Resource Tabs (black menu bar)

The black menu bar contains the resources needed to create your custom product:
  • product information
  • ordering fields (qty, size, color)
  • price calculations
  • design tools
  • artwork elements
  • printing information
The following resource tab labels are found on the black menu bar:
  • Product
  • Templates
  • Images
  • Clipart
  • Shapes
  • Text
  • Drawing
  • Layers

TIP: Watch for small context-sensitive icons (easy to miss) that open additional controls/settings for the various design tools. They will popup on the white toolbar (under the blue menu bar) when using various design resources (tabs on black menu bar).


This tab includes product information and attributes.

There are color and size options for you to select to place your order. When you change quantity, an attribute, or change printing method table the price is updated automatically.

Pricing calculations for the current item with printing can be found at the bottom of this product pane.

To add a product to cart, just press “Add To Cart” button. After adding to cart, you can change design or attribute, but the cart info is not updated with new changes unless you press the Update Cart button.

Each color must be added to the shopping cart separately.

Multiple Colors – Quick Tip: When purchasing different colors of the same item, this will save you a bit of time. After saving the first color of the item to the shopping cart, immediately close  the subsequent pop-up window (“X out” top right from the confirmation window). Then continue directly to the next color. You wll avoid leaving ZD to go back to the main website for each color.

To change to another product, leave Zwik Designer and return to the product listings on the website.
