If you offer personalized or customizable items on your website, then you understand the importance of collecting information accurately and quickly the first time. Printed, engraved, and embroidered items can be costly to a small business if the information is collected incorrectly.

Many store owners struggle with offering customizable items in a way that is easy to understand yet still offers the customer as many options as possible. This issue is commonly seen on items personalized with custom text such as a name, date, or other message message.

Without limitations set, shoppers may enter too many characters on a product leading to extra hours of customer service time. Unhappy customers who do not understand the character limit requirement can end up cancelling their order resulting in lost revenue and bad reviews for the merchant.
