Corjl is a great graphics editor software for those who are selling digital products. It’s especially useful for those with Etsy shops who want to sell customizable products to customers. In this blog post we’ll be covering what Corjl does, how to use it as a designer as well as the view from the client end.
What is Corjl?
Corjl is a web application that you can use to customize cards, printables and invitations for customers. Once your customer buys your product, they receive a link in their email which opens them up onto the Corjl platform where they can edit the design and customize it to their preference. They can change text, backgrounds, pictures and colors.
Corjl helps you design invitations, templates, cards… you name it! Making design easy for your customers is an excellent way to make your first $1,000 dollars and be a successful Etsy seller.
How to use Corjl for design
As the owner, this is the best way to set up yourself with Corjl:
- First of all create an account on Corjl.com.
- Start designing your invitation or card using the tools at your disposal. You can upload various images and fonts for your customer to use.
- Pick the format that you want to be available to your customer
- You can add various settings, such as a limit to the times downloaded and a time when it expires
- Easily integrate this with Etsy or Shopify and add it to your listing
- Every customer that purchases will get an email with a link from Corjl, to create an account, log in and customize the product.
How to use Corjl as a customer
What does using Corjl look like from the customer end? As noted above, the customer will get an email in their inbox with a link to Corjl. The customer is asked to create an account with Corjl (for GDPR reasons) using the email or username associated with their Etsy account. They then need to add their order number (not transaction number) of the product purchased and then are put through to a dashboard.
Through the Corjl dashboard, customers can edit the template. Depending on the settings put in place by you, customers can revise the text or add in their own photos. Here are some of the edits they can do:
Editing: They can use a text box on the right side of the page to edit the text. Then, on the tools panel you can choose to add text boxes, change font color, size and type. You also have the option to change the line and letter spacing.
Downloading and printing: Customers can pick what size paper they want to print. They can also add different marks such as bleed and trim marks to make the cutting easier. Corjl also gives the option to print multiple copies of a design onto one page.
Some other bonuses of using Corjl is that customers can adjust the text, the objects and images on their own cell phone or tablet. Since customers need to create a Corjl account, owners can see the adjustments made by customers, all on one dashboard. This makes it easier for you to understand Etsy metrics as well as optimize the designs for your listings.
The pricing on the Corjl software varies depending on the plan. Their cheapest plan comes at $9.99 per month with unlimited artboards, transactions and a cost of $.65 per transaction. For medium sized businesses, Corjl offers a plan at $19.99 per month which includes the same as the small plan but with a cost of $.45 per transaction. Finally, the higher volume shop comes at $49.99 per month with the same features as the other plans but with a cost of $.30 per transaction.
Corjl vs Templett
A well known alternative to Corjl is Templett, a software that offers a similar service. Both are pretty much the same, the only difference is that Templett is a little more expensive. Other differences are that Corjl can be used on a tablet or phone, whereas Templett only offers edits on a computer.
The overall feedback on the Corjl versus Templett debate is that Corjl does have more to offer. For example, with Corjl, the seller can add fun instructions, and the different views mean that the seller can easily see what exactly the customer can edit and can’t. In general, there are more options with Corjl. On top of that, Corjl offers a free 7 day trial for those who want to test it out before paying for the entire version.
