Quality Press Storefront Demo

Feel free to check out our storefront Demo site. Click on the button below and use “guest” for both Log In ID and Password. Click on "Storefront Demo Tutorial" below for instructions on how to navigate through the site.

STOREFRONT DEMO TUTORIAL

ACCOUNT PAGE
This is your storefront home page. We can customize it with your company logo and colors.

VIEW ORDERS
Click to view orders that were previously placed or are in process. We only have one order on this page for demo purposes, but once you start using Presswise, you'll be able to view all of your orders and your ordering history.
Click on the order number on the left to view the current status. There's also an invoice icon to the right of the order number if you wish to view that. Orders will have a thumbnail image of the product and a button for reordering. Once you are in the order, if it's waiting for approval, you would be able to approve or reject. It also details where and to whom we are shipping, and how it's being shipped and billed. There's a pdf link that allows you to view or download a high resolution pdf of the print file.

CATALOG
This page would contain printed products exclusive to your company. The tabs are customizable to whichever categories or names are most meaningful to you. Click on the appropriate tab and then on the product to order it. If applicable, inventory levels will appear under the product image.
All of the items in the catalog are live templates where you can enter information, generate a proof, and place the order. Feel free to try it using the Quality Press templates.
To get familiar with the process, go to the Business Cards tab and click on the image to enter and explore how the content fields work. Populate the fields with your information, then click "update image" to view the card. Click on "pdf proof", review, approve, re-edit, etc.

UPLOAD FILES
There are benefits to uploading files here rather than emailing or using a third-party transfer. The file size limit is large (1GB) and it automatically notifies several Quality Press employees that there's been an upload under your account name. At that point, any of us can access and view those files from wherever we are.

OTHER
There are administrative options to change your login, profile, and secure password.
The Shopping Cart icon at the top gives you another option to get back to your cart. You'll also find transactions you may have begun, but have not yet completed.
You can sort orders by those that you've placed, or that others have placed, or you can view them all, not matter what the origin.


September 15th is the date for this year’s annual open house, featuring wood-fired pizza, putt-putt golf, and prizes. It would be a great opportunity for you to visit our location in the Sodo area. We’re always happy to host customer tours, so if you can’t wait until then, let us know by emailing AllegraTour@qualitypress.com, and we can make a date!
