Bottom Line Up Front: If your shop isn’t using GraphicsFlow for your art department yet, join our April 26 livestream. You’ll discover how GraphicsFlow gives your team better tools for Art Approvals, production-ready graphics, and how this powerful platform pairs well with InkSoft.

If you’re already using InkSoft to run your print business, you might think you’ve got everything you need to run a modern print shop. But even if you’ve got production management and e-commerce locked down, you still need solutions for customer artwork. We’re sharing a special livestream on April 26 at 4pm EST demonstrating why GraphicsFlow is your must-have companion to InkSoft and the ultimate solution for your shop’s art department.

What is GraphicsFlow?

GraphicsFlow is a print and productivity tool built specifically for the custom-branded merch industry. It streamlines the Art Approval process and features an extensive library of more than 25,000 vector-based, production-ready graphics created for printing on apparel and promotional products.

That same art library is available to your customers via Art Portal. Art Portal is a public-facing, searchable catalog which your customers can browse, select, and submit artwork directly to your shop from. Art Portal works as a standalone website or is easily embeddable into an existing site.

“We chose GraphicsFlow because the people who developed and support it understand the apparel decoration business, and we have confidence in them.”

-Dennis Dunning, Embroidery Designs

Better Art Approvals

One of the most significant advantages of using GraphicsFlow for your customer artwork is the powerful Art Approvals workspace. This easy-to-use, organized tool lets you send art approvals to customers and respond to their notes within the platform. Eliminate messy email threads with countless attachments and hard-to-find notes. Customers respond to your design mockup directly so you and your team can finalize designs for production faster.

“A T-shirt is just a T-shirt. It’s a great design that will sell the T-shirt. GraphicsFlow gives us the best artwork and helps us sell more shirts.”

– Scott Creagan, Graphic Connection

You’ll learn about these crucial features plus all the other tools built into GraphicsFlow during the April 26 demonstration.
