Hello, I’m very impressed by the features of Magento but I am wondering whether it will suit this need:

I make personalised jewellery and I would like to give my customers the option of clicking a product and then entering their name or personalised message into a field on that page. That way when I recieve the order I will know exactly what text they would like on their product.

The obvious work around would be to have customers tell me via email or at the checkout stage but thats not what i want. they need to be able to add a note to the product itself before proceeding to checkout so they can order multiple personalised items.

that is all I require
Can Magento cater for this?

hope it makes sense

Hello,

Check out the Custom Product Preview extension for Magento This is a must-have for stores that sell products with custom graphics, such as T-shirts, mugs, mouse pads, etc.

Custom Product Preview extension for Magento enables your customers to create a preview of the end-product by placing their custom image and/or text over your product image. As Admin, you will be able to upload a background image that represents the custom product and define the printing area, and your customers will be able to upload and position their images and/or text that are to be printed, embroidered, etc. on your products. This easy-to-use and intuitive tool can provide you with an image that serves as an agreement with your customer of what the end-product should look like.

Play around with the demo store (admin / a111111) following the User Manual in order to get a better idea on how it works.

Thank you.
