Set your custom design business apart from others by integrating these two pieces of technology onto your sales floor.
There’s nothing better than making an effortless sale with a customer and knowing that the piece they’ve dreamed of and that you helped them design is the item they’ll love forever. Put the custom design ability in your customer’s hands and watch as they create one-of-a-kind jewelry with your support. With the help of Gemvision’s design program CounterSketch® and 3D printers from B9Creations™, you can ensure that your customers will always leave your shop satisfied.
Help your customers design and modify a selected style in CounterSketch, and 3D print their finished creation as a resin sample to try on in no time— all in the comfort of your store. This enhanced customer experience allows you to tackle any design request that comes your way and also helps you build essential customer relationships that are important to your selling success.
A Custom Design Experience
Your customer may have an idea of what they want, but they might need your help to fully envision their creation. Thanks to CounterSketch and its library of styles, you can work side by side with your shopper to determine their design preferences. Cocreate their perfect piece in the design program, which includes an abundance of design elements from the freehand library to ensure that every detail they love is included in the final design. Change a mounting or shank, add or take away accent stones, change the metal quality of the piece, and so much more. The possibilities are endless, and your customer never has to settle for anything less than what they’ve dreamed of.
After the design process is complete, create a realistic photo render of their ring in CounterSketch to see every element come together. Want to take this shopping experience to the next level and assure your customer that they have made the right choice? That’s where B9Creations and their 3D printing solutions come in.
