Colorado Textile Integration
IN THIS GUIDE
Order Desk can pull your print on demand orders in from your shopping cart(s), sync your print details into them, and then submit them to Colorado Textile. As Colorado Textile fulfills the orders, the shipment details will be pulled back into Order Desk and sent back to the original shopping cart if your store is set up for it.
This guide explains how to set up and use the Colorado Textile integration.
To enable the integration, click on Manage Integrations in the left sidebar. Under the Print on Demand tab, find and enable the Colorado Textile integration.
Enter your Customer ID from Colorado Textile and click to connect.
Default Mail Class
Choose the shipping class you want Colorado Textile to use for your orders.
If you need to apply specific methods for certain orders, match your method names to Colorado Textile's names in the Shipping Class Match section below.
After Import, Move To
Select the folder you want orders to be moved into after they are successfully sent to Colorado Textile.
You can use one of the default folders already in your store or create your own. Read the Working with Folders guide for more information.
After Shipment, Move To

Default Return Address
Set your default return address for Colorado Textile to use on your shipments.
If you need to customize the return address for certain orders, you can save different return addresses to your Store Settings and then use a rule to set the return address to specific orders. If a return address is not added to the order, the default address set here in the Colorado Textile settings will be used.
For information on adding additional return addresses and applying them to specific orders with a rule, read the Store Settings guide.
For more information on what the product settings within the Colorado Textile integration do, please read the Print on Demand Product Settings guide.
Shipping Class Match
If the shipping methods you set up in your shopping cart(s) don't match the shipping method names Colorado Textile uses, they won't know what methods you intend for them to use. When this happens, the default mail class applied above will be used instead for all of your orders.
To tell Colorado Textile what methods you want them to use, you will need to match your method names to theirs. This can be done in the shipping class match section. For detailed instructions on setting this up, please read through the shipping class match guide.
