Default DecoNetwork & Inksoft

I've been combing through this forum for input on DecoNetwork vs InkSoft.

Most of the posts are years old with very little current and/or relevant information.

So in an attempt to gain some current input, comparisons and feedback from ACTUAL users or either of these two products, I'm starting this new thread.

So I would ask those in the community who are or were actually using either of these programs to please share your experiences so we can have a current thread with updated comments.

We have used both solutions and as with most things there are pluses and minuses of both. The first thing I would do is clearly outline for yourself the key objectives you are trying to accomplish. Most important is when looking for references is to be speaking with people who are using the same decoration process you use. If I do embroidery I want to be speaking to other people using the system for embroidery. What may be a great product for a vinyl company may be horrible for another decorating method. Next, I would ask Deco and Ink for references based specifically on the decoration method you use. I would check out those websites and eventually contact those that I may have questions for. Both system are full turn key systems and not a simple on-line designer you slap on your website. They take time and are a valuable tool if implemented and maintained properly.

I have tried Deconetworks. I found it too difficult. You need to be an expert at html coding to make that platform looking half decent. Forget SEO, social media integration and the like. It was slow as well.

The value in the Deconetworks platform is the back end. The front end is very average.

Thanks! Did you do anything with affiliate stores? Im looking for an alternative to ordermygear for team stores that has more backend functionality and doesn't come with OMG's up front pricing.

Default Re: DecoNetwork & Inksoft

We have been using DecoNetwork for about 7 years. We have never touched the HTML code and find it easy to use. We have over 600 affiliate stores and can set one up for a customer in about 15 mins. They recently came out with a new release that has many interface enhancements to make it easier to use and are working on the next generation which is heavily focused on responsive design and front end user ease of use. We have not used ink soft so I cannot provide any feedback.

I would suggest getting the 30 day trial and play with it to see if it fits your needs.

We primarily do DTG and Sublimation.

Thanks for the input. I did the 30 day demo with DecoNet and was not impressed. Takes a lot of time to get a polished look and even then looks dated. Going to go with Inksoft.

Thanks baked T's that is encouraging to hear. do you do affiliate stores as team stores on a regular basis?

We did pull the trigger on a trial -- was disappointed to learn that the fundraising feature only allows for fundraising on one product -- really ?
would have been super nice to be able to add the fundraising component to an entire affiliate store, or in my case,
team store. so i suppose i would need to just build affiliate stores for teams and communicate the fundraising aspect and progress outside of the store.

Your whole website is a custom design, none of which comes from deconetworks.

For those doing research have a look at Home - Baked T's
That is what you get from deconetworks AFTER customising their template. Looks like something from 1999.

After customizing? I don't think so.

This website was customized with some basic html and css The Internet's Most Affordable Custom T-Shirts - The Internet's Most Affordable Custom T-Shirt! (hint, click on the menu) is all Deconetwork. BTW is not my website.

We did not do any customization. This was using the basic Deco templates. It is very basic but serves our needs as the online store is not our primary source of selling. It is there as a convenience for our customers.

If this was our primary sales tool we would customize. The biggest value we currently receive is the affiliate stores.
