FAQ

GENERAL QUESTIONS

What printer do you recommend?

A black toner laser printer is normally all that is needed to create beautiful PT gifts unless you desire print color text, add color photos or create Coat of Arms gifts. In that case, you should choose a color laser or color inkjet printer. Laser printers offer some advantages including: Print speed, consistent quality, lowest print cost, zero dry time, etc. But many inkjet printers work well too.

Remember that you will normally be printing the text only, (poems, name meanings, etc) on top of the pre-printer Personal Touch art backgrounds that we provide for you. This is the most cost effective, fastest (10 seconds upon pressing Print with many printers), and by far the highest quality way to create PT gifts.

Because printer models change so rapidly, we do not provide a list of recommended printers. Your current printer may work just fine however, so we suggest testing your printer for quality and compatibility, and purchase a new one only if needed. If you do decide to purchase a new printer, we recommend purchasing a simple "printer" instead of All-in-One or Multifunction devices which are more prone to issues. Perhaps the most important feature is the ability to print on "cardstock" paper. Personal Touch art backgrounds are pre-printed on acid-free, 65lb cardstock paper, which is a similar thickness to a thin business card.

A good way to confirm printer performance, compatibility and quality is to test print using actual PT art backgrounds. This can be easily be accomplished by bringing several PT art backgrounds to your local computer printer supplier such as Best Buy, Office Depot, Office Max, Staples, etc and printing a demo page using the PT art backgrounds as your test paper.

We recently purchased an "HP LaserJet Pro M201dw" wireless, duplex, monochrome printer which we are very happy with. Remember that Personal Touch will provide you with the pre-printed art backgrounds so a simple black toner printer is all you will need to create most of the gifts.

Frame and paper sizes are different in my country. What frame sizes will fit the prints?

Here are suggestions for frames and mats if you are unable to find these frame sizes in your country:

 

Personal Touch Art backgrounds are 8.5 x 11 and our most common mat size is 11 x 14. Most common frame sizes are 8.5x11 and 11x14

 

1. Create custom 8.5x11 frames.

 

2. Create custom sized mats/ photo mats to accommodate the 8.5 x 11 art background with an outside dimensions equal to a standard frame size in your country.  Example 11 x 14 frame with an 8 x 10.5 opening for the art.

 

3. Find a local manufacturer to create the frames and or mats for you.

 

4. Create gifts that are smaller than our 8.5x11 paper but are equal to standard frame sizes in your country. Here’s an overview of how that works:

 

  1. Using Personal Touch software, insert the desired size “cut-line”. e.g.  5 x 7.
  2. Drag and drop the cutline to the desired location on the art background.
  3. Insert the desired text and drag and drop it into the cut-line.
  4. Insert the art background into your printer, and press PRINT.
  5. Trim out the perfectly sized smaller print with a scissor or paper cutter.
  6. Insert the trimmed print into the frame.

5. Provide the 8.5x11 prints in an 8.5x11 clear art-bag without a frame or mat. This is an inexpensive solution and perfect for most customers who have no desire to add a frame or purchase a more costly gift. 

 

This is the least expensive and most popular gift solution.

 

6. Create your own paper photo mats.  This solution is just like cutting a mat, but paper is much easier and less expensive to cut.  This is very common thing that Scrap-bookers / crafters do.

 

This would likely be the most cost effective alternative to framing or matting gifts, and provide you with the ability to create some very creative and unique gifts.

 

SUGGESTION: Search amazon.com or the web for “paper cutter” or “scrap booking paper cutter” to get you started.

Is there a catalog or flyers that will help with sales.?

Personal Touch provides art background brochures and order forms to assist with sales.

Completed sample gifts along with the PT Art book and Poetry Books will be invaluable sales tools to allow your customer to select their gift.

The PT Art Book and PT Poetry Books are included with some of the start up kits or can be purchased separately.

Here is an overview of a typical sale to create a name meaning gift:
  • Your customer selects any art background from your "Master Art Book."
  • Using the Gifts on Art software, you will choose the selected art background, and it will display on your monitor.
  • Search for your customer’s Name, and it will display right on top of the art background ready to print. (That is part of the fun for your customer.)
  • Add a sentiment if desired.
  • Insert the pre-printed Personal Touch “art background" into your printer and press the PRINT button.

That's it! Your Personal Touch Personalized Gift is complete and ready for framing , matting, or inserting into a host of other personalize-able gift items!

What is the best way to get started with this opportunity?

Without knowing more about your specific requirements, we recommend setting up in a low cost retail location such as flea markets, craft fairs, local farmers markets, gifts shows, etc. to get your business up and running quickly. These venues charge very little and generally provide many potential customers who come there prepared to make a purchase. These options also offer you the flexibility to get your business started without effecting your normal work-week.

HELP?: What is the best way remove the lint from the picture frame acrylic?

The static charge that results after removing the protective blue sheets from the Acrylic can be so frustrating!

 

Here are a few things to consider and ideas for dealing with static:

 

FYI, the acrylic that we use in our larger frames is real Acrylic as opposed to the less expensive styrene that is typically used in low cost picuture frames. While acrylic is considerably stronger and more durable that styrene, we do not recommend using any paper products or harsh chemicals which can scratch the surface.

 

Wiping the surface with a soft cotton cloth, lightly moistened with water (not sopping wet) is recommended to wipe away minor lint and debris.

 

With regard to dealing with heavy static, there are inexpensive "anti-static cloth’s" and more expensive “anti-static guns” that you can find on the web.

 

I would however consider purchasing “anti-static brush” which costs a bit more than anti-static cloth’s but may be a more effective solution. (The brush bristles should not be too hard).

 

Here is link to brush on Amazon that I would consider purchasing: Anti-static Brush

SOFTWARE

Can I install my software on more than one computer?

Yes. Unless specified otherwise, each software license allows the purchaser to maintain the software on 2 computers. You can also purchase addtional licenses at a reduced cost if you desire to maintain the software on more than 2 computers.

Do I need a special computer to run your software?

Our software is compatible with Windows XP, 7, 8 and 10

Mac customers can run Windows software using a 3rd party program called "Parallels for Windows."

I see that you offer an upgrade for GOA customers, do I qualify for the upgrade if I have a different software?

Gifts on Art customers can upgrade one time to a higher Start-up kit within one year of initial purchase.

Are the backgrounds trimmed in the software or do you need to cut them yourself?

The Gifts on Art software provides a cut-line tool that will allow you to easily create smaller gifts. After you print the text and cut-line on the art background, you can trim along the cut-line with a scissor or paper cutter to create your perfectly sized smaller gift.

Can I print in color?

Yes, if you have a color printer, you can print in color. You can print text, small photos and Coat of Arms in color. It is important to understand that you will not actually be printing the art backgrounds. You will be only be printing the text and or photos on top of pre-printed PT art backgrounds.

How will I know if the text will line up properly with the art background? Is there a print preview with the selected background or is it hit and miss until you get it right?

Yes there is print preview. The software allows you to view the text together with the art background as you are creating the gift.

How do I unlock my software?

Call or email us with the following:

Can I use plain paper to print the Amazing Cartoons?

You can use any 8 ½ x 11 white paper and trim it to size based on the print size that you select: 8x10, 5x7 and 2x3 (Key chain size)

 

We recommend however printing the cartoons on photo paper that will be much nicer and last much longer than ordinary printer paper. You can find photo paper at your local or online office supply such as Amazon.com. The finish is a matter of preference but mat, glossy or satin finish should work fine.

What do I need to create music CD's with My Kids Songs software?

Your computer must have a CD drive that allows you to burn CD’s. If you insert a blank CD into your computer, your system will likely display a window and ask what you would like to do with the CD such as Burn a Music or Data CD. If your current laptop / computer system does not have an integrated CD burner, you can purchase and external CD drive.

 

My Kids Songs software creates a single music file so it will be very easy to burn that file to your CD drive using your computers existing cd burning method.

 

My Kids Songs software creates beautiful personalized images that you can print on CD labels. If you do not already have a CD label program, you can search for “CD Label Software” on amazon or the web. We use “SureThing Disc Labeler” software which works nicely.

 

While the MKS software is available for download only, we can provide the software on a USB flash drive for an additional $10. If you prefer to receive your software on a flash drive, complete your MKS software purchase on our website and then call us with your payment details for the additional $10.

When I print a photo on the art background, the art shows through the photo and distorts the picture. How can I fix that?

When you print a photo on top of an art background you are essentially putting one image on top of another image which will naturally allow the dark areas of the art to show through the light areas of the photo.

 

Here are your options when printing photos on top of art backgrounds:

 

  • Minimize the issue by printing the photo in a white or very light area of the art background.
  • Glue-stick the photo directly on the front of art background. Very easy to do.
  • Purchase a circle-cutter to cutout a circle on the art background and affix the photo to the back with scotch tape.
  • Purchase a mat that has a separate opening for the photo. Using this method, you could print their photo on white paper or the customer could insert their own photo into the mat when they get home.  

Do you have a software that I can use to create African Names?

Personal Touch "Gifts on Art" software includes names from around the world, but I assume there will be many African names that may not be in our database.  

 

You can however easily create name gifts for any name. Even if the name is not found in our database, your customers with unique names will be exceedingly happy that you can create a name meaning gift for them too.

 

When searching for a name, if that name is "not found" in our database, you can simply click a button to add that name to the database. In that case the name is considered "unique" and the program selects a complimentary meaning and eight virtues associated with that name, and the origin will display as "unique or given".  

 

If however you know the meaning and origin for a name that was not found in the database, you can easily edit the meaning and orgin for your customer.

 

With regard to African names specifically, you can search the web for ""African baby names" and easily add those names with the meaning and origin to the database.

WEB-STORE QUESTIONS

Can you provide more details about the Personal Touch web-store?

1. What are Personal Touch Products (PTP) Retail Web-Stores?

Personal Touch offers an optional subscription based retail web-store designed exclusively for our personalized gift retailers. As a web-store subscriber you can customize your online store with your own business name and contact information and select from several color schemes. You can also Activate or Inactivate products based upon your current inventory. Additionally you can set your own standard price and run sales if and when desired.

2. Do I have to purchase the website, or how does this work?

PTP provides you with a subscription based web-store that will allow you to sell Personal Touch gifts to your customers. You do not actually purchase your web-store. PTP is the owner of the website and will act the web-host, and maintain your web-store on its servers.

3. Can I host the PTP Website myself or transfer the website to another webhost?

PTP maintains the web-stores on its own servers. Doing so allows PTP to manage features, intellectual property and security.

4. Will my customers' transactions be secure?

Yes. Online payments will be processed through PayPal. PayPal uses the latest in Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology as well as other security features to process payments.

5.  Can I display my own website name in my online store?

Yes. And this is recommended so you can maintain your own website name indefinitely. This can be performed any time after you complete the web-store registration process. This option will require that you acquire your own domain name (URL) from a Domain Registrar. Because of the flexibility and support they provide, we recomend godaddy.com. Your Domain Registrar can assist you with redirecting your URL to your webstore, but it is important to follow the instructions provided in your webstore adminstration menu: Redirect URL Info.

6. Will you advertise my Online Web-Store or submit it to the search engines?

PTP does not advertise or submit web-stores to the search engines. We believe that the marketing and advertising your store is best managed by you, the store owner. It is also our belief that search engine placement has become more about dollars (to the service providers) than anything else. In the past, the majority of search engines picked up the best sites for particular keywords and listed them at the top. Today, to get to the top of most search engines you will need pay an SEO expert or bid for pay-per-click keywords (PPC) that you pay for each time someone clicks on your link. This can get expensive. The places at the top of the search engines are of course limited, and thus have become very expensive Internet "real estate".

7. How do you recommend that I promote my Online Store?

Merchants can promote their online web-store address in a variety of ways including business cards, email, advertising to existing customers, online advertising at related websites, referrals, word of mouth, and of course social media. We recommend placing your contact information (a return address label works fine) with your website address on the back of every gift that you sell. This will serve as a permanent business card. Existing online merchants can link from their existing website(s) pointing to their PT  web-store.

8. How soon will I start to get orders from my customers?

You can be up and running the same day. Your web-store will be ready to accept orders after successful registration and setting up your PayPal and Shipping Methods. The level of web-store sales you achieve will of course depend solely upon your efforts to market your store. For customers to find your website, you need to let them know that you exist. Rolling out a new website can be an exciting event so be sure to let everyone you know when your store is up and running. And be sure to ask them to visit your web-store and share their thoughts with you. Marketing is a fundamental step to the success of any business or website so we suggest that you develop and follow through with a plan. Try different approaches and build upon the methods that work best. With consistent effort you can build your own list of happy repeat customers. And be sure to stay in touch with your customers by e-mail, and let them know when you're running a special. Send reminders and notices to your customers prior to the upcoming holidays.

9. How do I receive payments from my customers?

Via PayPal on-line payments. A PayPal account set as a "business" account is required to register your web-store and accept payments from your customers. Your customers however do not need a PayPal account to make a purchase from your store. They can make on-line payments using their credit cards through PayPal. Much like an on-line bank, PayPal provides your web-store and your customers with the state of the art security so don't have to concern yourself with that all important requirement. When your customer pays for their order, PayPal takes their transaction fee (approx. 3%), and deposits the remaining funds into your PayPal account. You can use your PayPal balance to pay for other purchases or transfer any available funds at any time into your checking account without incurring additional fees.

10. How does the Web-store calculate shipping charges?

Your web-store administration control panel will allow you to set flat-rate shipping fees for domestic and international orders. You can decide to ship domestic only or allow international orders. We recommend using the United States Post Service flat rate priority mail boxes and evelopes which will save you on shipping supplies and provide you with predicatable rates.  What's really nice about the USPS, is that you can request a pickup the next day at your residence or place of work. Open a no cost USPS account at any time. usps.com


11. How long will it take me to set-up my store?

Your on-line web-store can be set-up as quickly as 1 business day from completing your web-store registration and payment. Upon completing the registration you will receive a confirmation email with a link to access to your web-store admin panel.

12. Are there any requirements and how do I get started?

This offer is available to Personal Touch customers who purchased a Gifts on Art start-up kit. Gifts on Art Start-up Kits

13. Can I sell all of the products on the website or am I limited based on the start-up kit that I purchase.

 

The webstores are not desiged to sell all of the products. The sample web-store will give you a good idea of the gift types and supplies that you can offer. You will notice that the web-stores are designed to allow your customers to interactively design first name meaning gifts and poetry gifts step by step. As well as design family tree and last name history gifts. It is however possible to sell any other type of gift using a feature that we call “Other Gifts”. Other gifts do not permit interactively creating personalized gifts, but you can easily upload a photo, give it a description, set a price and a shipping price for anything else that you may desire to sell.

 

14. How much does the web-store cost?

Our subscription based web-stores require a one-time $39 set-up fee and a $19 (or less) per month subscription fee. Additional incentives for quarterly, semi-annual and annual subscriptions can be selected during the registration process.

 

15. How Long does it take to open a webstore?


You can open a PT web-store today.


With 78% of 1,000 consumers recently surveyed nationwide saying they prefer to shop with a small business or boutique website, that's great news for us. Be sure to drive traffic from your social media accounts such as Facebook directly to your web-store. Prior to each of the upcoming holidays, you can post photos of real people receiving thoughtful personalized gifts and link them to your store.

 

When a sufficent number of customers begin asking for your website address, that may be an indicator that it's a good time to open a web-store. Keep in mind that you can be up and running in a day so there's no need to rush.

 

Brand your web-store with your business name and redirect your own URL to your web-store so it will appear to your customers as if they are at your website.
