Reviews

Holds up to tough competition

The necessity of this type of platform is ever increasing in many websites today and many developers out there are jumping on it.

It seems many of these options are either abandoned altogether (OpenCart/OpenTshirts) or an extremely expensive platform. They end up not being cost effective at all for small (or startup) businesses.

Ultimately a clear, flexible platform is required in order to stay at the top of the competition.

The uDraw integration options allow you to use this platform with a lot of popular shopping cart systems. With WooCommerce it installed & integrated immediately with no hassle!

We really appreciate the hard work and dedication guys! Can’t thank you enough!!

Awesome plugin with awesome support

I purchased one of the plugin from codecanyon and try to complete my web to print requirement. But after some stressed days and bad support, i check for some other solution and find uDraw. I am glad that i checked it and used in my project. After changing to uDraw, my client liked it better than paid plugin and i was able to make it work for my project. When i also need some customization and need to solve some bug, developers always there for support and try to fix things as soon as possible.

Overall, i have a great experience with the plugin and recommend to other who are willing to make website based on Web to Print solution.

Nice

It’s nice, But it would be nicer if there was an option to switch form iches to millimeters. Just a tip 😉
