Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 21, 2012
Ryan Saunders, the co-founder and former co-president of Inc. 500 companies Walrus Brands and IguanaMed, is thrilled to announce his newest venture, Izo.
With the creation of Izo—an ecommerce-focused business offering innovative product customization and design tools, an online group collaboration and design platform, and mobile media distribution applications—Saunders has taken a leap into the growing and evolving online custom apparel and promotional products industries. Millions of people customize products like t-shirts, hats and jackets every year in the United States—and the numbers are growing.
Izo’s flagship site, Customizo.com, offers state-of-the-art design software and a social networking platform unlike anything else on the web. Whether getting t-shirts for a baseball team, designing hats for an entire company or ordering yoga pants for a local studio, Customizo lets users do everything in one place—with patented software that goes beyond basic fonts and designs. In addition, the site offers top-of-the-line brands, including American Apparel, Nike, Adidas and Champion. And with free shipping, apparelled customer service and price match guarantees on group orders the benefits are clear.
Customizo offers three main components that differ from other online design sites and promotional product companies:
Design Studio: Developed with Adobe Scene 7 at its core, the interactive Design Studio provides users with product design tools normally only available to professional graphic designers. Thanks to an easy-to-use interface, users can upload their own designs, create a design from scratch or work with an extensive assortment of design templates.
Groupizo: This social media platform allows members of any group, team, organization or business do everything from creating and posting designs to voting on favorites to individual ordering. And with chat rooms and shareable design tools, everyone can work together to create the product that best fits the group's needs.
Snapizo: The mobile component of Customizo, Snapizo lets users take an image with an iPhone and apply it to any Customizo product. Spot a fabulous color, logo or design? Snap it, post it and use it in the design. In addition to sharing photos with group members, users can simultaneously post and share images via Facebook, Twitter and Flickr.
Customizo also offers specific programs geared toward college students (CustomizoU) and business and charitable organizations (C-Stores). The C-Stores program boasts a fully hosted and managed online company store platform for organizations, ranging from Stanley Steemer to Shriners Hospitals for Children, as well as a stand-alone customizable website option for promotional outreach.
