What is Additional Option?

Additional option is an extra selection only showing up on personalization form, and does not add any layer to the artwork design.

You can use Additional option to:

Add a question to the form without adding any image to artwork



Add an extra level of options

For example: You want your customers to choose Hair color before Hairstyle. So you can use an additional option to choose hair color first, then the hairstyle option will show up based on the color selected.
