STEP 4 : NOW, IT'S TIME TO UPLOAD YOUR DESIGN.
A simple and intuitive design title is recommended. Favorable to indicate a specific product type (e.g.: soap dispenser, smart phone case etc.).
Select the best image expressing your design most attractive and upload it. You made a perfect choice if the image shows well enough the usage of the product, or if it may induce some clicks because it just looks so cool!
For a design video, you can upload a 3D rendering animation or design sample you took by yourself. Indeed, you can just pass it because it's optional.
