The product listing
The product listing is the overview of all products in a category. It can be more than one page, depending on the category. The listing shows simplified product information.
The product page
Calculate advertising placement online
To access the calculation, select “With advertising placement” on the product page in the drop-down menu located below the prices. In the standard version, “Without advertising placement” is always preselected. A window opens, showing you the available finishing types suitable for the product in the form of icons with labelling.
There you select your desired finishing by clicking on the icon.
Please note the info box indicating the available print size for the product. The possible print areas result from the final artwork. You can download them via a button.
In the next step, you must enter your desired product quantity in the number field. You will then receive a transparent overview of all costs incurred. If you would like to receive a preliminary sample for your order, you can select this option by clicking on the tick.
Compare scales and place order:
Click on the button “Show more scales” so that the advertising placement window expands by two more scales. Change the quantities in the payment fields to compare costs. You can then download the offer via “Print offer”.
If you are not logged in, you can download the offer with industry price and/or make an enquiry. If you have webshop access, you can add the desired quantity to the shopping cart. You can also upload the graphic files for your product via the shopping cart.
This is how it works:
Selecting and configuring a “Wow” product is easy. Go to the navigation item “Services” and select the sub-item “Product configuration”. There, you can decide on the product of your choice by clicking on the tile and are automatically taken to the configurator.
Each colour of the individual components can be selected individually. The dots on the left correspond to the colours available for the product. You can click on them as often as you like until you get your desired colour combination. The product image makes it easy to track any changes you make. The inventory is updated depending on the selection and availability of components. If gift wrapping is not included, it can be chosen separately. The packaging image is displayed by moving the mouse pointer over the “Packaging” box.
Transparent web tracking and data protection
What are cookies?
At the beginning of your visit to our website, you will also be asked which cookies you wish to accept. Cookies are small blocks of data that websites can store on the visitor’s device. This can be, for example, information about the language selection, the visitor’s time zone or session information for the shopping cart function. Generally, according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), user consent must be obtained before a cookie is stored. It must also be disclosed which cookies are used. Technically necessary cookies do not require consent. All data is anonymised and encrypted.
Are cookies generally bad?
Not in general, but a distinction must be made here: Cookies are a common means deployed on the web to provide or improve offers for users. The functions of cookies are manifold. For example, there are cookies that are necessary for the proper function of an online shop, e.g. for the language selection of a website or the login status.
Some cookies are used to identify and track a user. This sounds strange at first, but it is essential for the website operator. Only in this way can it be determined how many customers visit the shop and which pages they access. This is the so-called statistical web tracking.
In addition, cookies are used for web services that generate personalised advertising for users. In the process, data is passed on to third parties. It is important to differentiate between these cookies.
Types of cookies:
- Technically necessary cookies: Technically necessary cookies ensure the basic function of a web shop, such as the shopping basket function in the online shop or saving your watch lists. In addition, a cookie saves your cookie settings so that you are not asked again each time you visit the website. Our technically necessary cookies include:
CRSF protection: CRSF protection prevents hackers from performing actions in the online shop on your behalf.
Time zone: Your time zone is recorded to determine your geographical location. No specific addresses are determined in the process.
- Statistics cookies: Statistics cookies help us, as a website operator, to understand how visitors interact with our website. The information we collect is evaluated anonymously. From this, we derive necessary changes to the website that should lead to enhanced user-friendliness. No data will be passed on to third parties.
- Marketing cookies: Marketing cookies are used to serve personalised advertisements. User behaviour, i.e. products clicked on in the shop, is analysed and stored by cookies. When you leave the website and continue to browse the web, the products you have viewed will be displayed to you in the form of advertising. In the process, data is transmitted to third parties. We do not use this type of cookie.
Ongoing contact options:
The so-called floating action buttons are three elements that are always positioned at the lower right edge of the screen. They offer you a practical form of assistance if you want to contact us directly via telephone or email, or if you want to go straight to the top of the website.
Desktop: In the desktop view, you need to click on the “Phone” and “Email” buttons to open our phone number or email address. By clicking on the respective element again, the selected action is carried out. Our “Back to top of page” button takes you back to the top of the website with one click.
Smartphone: On the smartphone, the floating action buttons “Email” and “Phone” are hidden behind a circular plus element. When the element is selected, the menu is opened. With a single click, you can now switch to “Email”, “Telephone” and “Back-to-Top”.
Product comparison: The differences at a glance
To make it easy for you to compare articles with each other, we have added a new function for you. Up to four items can be compared at once.
How it works:
- Use the comparison symbol on the item, either in the listing (category page with product box) or directly on the product page.
- If one or more items are in the comparison, the comparison symbol appears in a cyan-coloured box at the bottom left.
- The number shows you how many items you have already added for comparison.
- Clicking on the box will take you to the comparison overview, where all the added items will be listed. Alternatively, you can also get there via the comparison symbol in the navigation bar.
- Add more items or click on “Compare now” and you will be taken to the comparison view.
- You can download the comparison as a PDF or print it out directly by clicking on the “Print” button.

What is two-factor authentication?
Activate two-factor authentication to ensure additional protection for your webshop access and account with two independent components. When logging in with 2FA activated, the login must be verified by a one-time password from a compatible app or a password manager (existing software on your system). Many users are familiar with this function from online banking. The option can be activated under “Personal Profile”.
The first step is to scan the QR code with your 2FA app or enter the code below it and you will receive a 6-digit one-time password in your app that updates every 30 seconds.
In the second step, enter the newly generated 6-digit one-time password to check that the 2FA has been set up correctly. You can then click on the blue button to verify your one-time password and activate 2FA.
As soon as you want to log in, alongside your email address and password, you will also be asked for a one-time password, which is generated via your 2FA app.
If you have forgotten your password, you can set a new password under “Login” by clicking on “Forgotten password”.
When you enter your email address, you will receive an email with a link that is valid for two hours. You can set up a new password via this link. If you do not use the link within two hours, you must request a new link.
Your data security is important to us. Therefore, we have chosen this process to set the new password via a link.
