How to place an order through Sourceful's Shop

  1. Find your product in Shop. Read more on how to choose the right product.
  2. Customise your product using our configurator. Here you'll need to consider quantity, size, material and features as you build your product. Your configured product will then be saved as a draft in your account.
  3. Select your artwork. For this step, you'll be asked to login if you haven’t already. Then, you’ll need to download the dieline provided, design your artwork in your preferred design tool and upload it to your configured product. Adobe Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop are a few strong design tools.
  4. Preview your packaging product in our 3D previewer. If you want to make any changes, you'll need to make edits in your design tool and then re-upload your design.
  5. Place your order. Once you’re happy with the artwork, add your product to the basket and then continue shopping or checkout.

As you customise your product in our configurator, the live pricing and carbon footprint will update in real-time depending on the choices you make for quantity, size, features and more.
