Navigation is key to getting around. Here at ACOT, we've tried to make your experience here a fun one by creating a clear and precise method to finding the products you are looking for.
If you've never been on our site before, navigating through 20,000 products to find something can be overwhelming! Fortunately, there are several ways to go about this.
If you know the product name or part of the name, try typing that into the Search field. You can also type in the product's UPC number or our item # in this field.
Another way to find what you're looking for is by using our Shop Tabs. If you are looking for something specific, give this method a try. In the sample below, we are going to find some Autumn paper by Creative Imaginations. First, click on the Shop Companies tab and look for the company name in the alphabetical list. The numbers in parenthesis after the company names indicates how many products are within that collection.
When you click on the company name, you will see a screen like the one below. On the left column you have several choices: you may narrow your selection of the 1298 products returned on this screen by Line, Type, Theme or Artist.
For this example, we will select the Theme option to narrow our selection to only Autumn products as in the image below.
I now have a listing on my screen of 24 Autumn & Thanksgiving products. I'd like to narrow this down again so that only Paper products show up on my screen. I do this by selecting the Narrow by Type link in the screen shot image below:
I now have 11 Autumn paper products listed on my screen. Note the black arrow which points to the "rabbit trail". You can click on any of these links to go back to where you were previously.
In the image below, I've clicked on one of the paper products to view the product detail. From this screen you have even more options!
As you can see in the image below, this product detail screen shows you know how many are available and the size of the product. If the product has a text description, you would see that here as well.
Here at A Cherry on Top, we make coordinating products a breeze! On the product detail screen you will see several tabs below the product image. On our sample below, you'll see the Related Products tab and Coordinating Cardstock tab. If the product is linked to from a layout in our Gallery, it will also have a Media tab.
As you click into any of the products on these tabs, it will take you to the product detail of that item.
For the example above, we could have selected Theme first, then narrowed it down by Company and then Product Type. Just keep in mind that there is usually more than one way to navigate our website. Once you get the feel for it, you'll agree with others that it is the most user-friendly scrapbooking site on the 'net!
