Tips to grow your food business, delivered to your inbox every week.

Nothing makes us happier than helping you share your talents with the world — and growing your business along the way. 

We know how beautiful your products are and how badly you’ve been wanting to show them in your store.

This month, based on your feedback, we’re proud to introduce more new features designed to help you focus on what really matters — creating an awesome experience for your customers, from the time they order through when they taste your yummy treats.

📸 Add a photo gallery to your Castiron shop

If you sell custom products, your portfolio of work is your best salesperson! You don’t need to work on selling 24/7 when you have a gallery that can do it for you.

We built our new photo gallery feature to make it easier for you to show customers exactly what kind of custom cookies, cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, and other creative products you’ve made before. Customers won’t need to switch between your Instagram profile and your shop to find inspiration before they request a custom design! 

If your product photos live on your phone, it’s easy to build your gallery directly from your mobile device. Head to your Shop Settings page to start adding photos to your gallery.

It’s super easy — in fact, most of our users built their gallery in less than an hour. But don’t take it from us! See what some of our artisans have to say about photo galleries:

👀 Even more newness in Castiron

That's not the only thing we've been working on lately. Check out some of our recent additions:

  • We get it — placing custom orders isn’t as easy as your customer saying “I want a dozen cookies.” You have to ask a lot of questions to understand exactly what your customers want. Build your custom order form and ask all the questions you need to build a quote. Create your order form today.
  • Send quotes directly to customers, no order request needed! If you’ve already discussed the details of an order over the phone or in-person, you can send a quote that outlines order details directly to your customer for payment. Perfect for corporate orders!

Haven't started building your shop yet? That's okay! Create your Castiron store (and your gallery!) today.
