Pros
I love that I have a way to give my clients a visual to the vision in my head. I love that I can pull from any knline site or upload pictures from my own to use in creating designs.
The ability to create digital images, the approve/deny function is AMAZING. Customer service is very responsive.
It is a vibrant platform that continually improves itself, and through that, Design Files makes me a better designer.
Cons
I struggle with the client sharing part - it does not always work when I try to share boards with my clients which can be frustrating.
The downside is the time it takes to "manually cut out" using many "click" points around products that are on too-light backgrounds or have other items in their backgrounds.
The only thing which is missing for me is that I am from Germany and I can‘t get the side or presentation I download as a pdf in German. I always need to translate my pdf file afterwards.

Review of Design Files

Reviewed 2 years ago

Wonderful

Pros

One of the things that has impressed me about DF is their responsiveness to designers' needs. Customer service is wonderful as well. I use DF every day in my business and I can't wait to see how it continues to grow and develop to make the design process even more seamless and fun. I have loved it so much I recommended it to our entire team, and they've just signed on!

Cons

The 3D modeling program is basic, but still useful. I do turn to another program for my 3D modeling needs.

The best software I’ve tried!

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall I’ve had a really awesome experience with design files. I tried every single option there was out there in design files was by far the one that stood out the most! There are definitely some kinks that I’m still trying to figure out and things that I would like to see improved upon, but I definitely can see that they are committed to listening to designers feedback and improving the software as time goes on. And that is awesome!

Pros

The product clipper and the ability to take a quote to an invoice and track payments is incredible!

Cons

The 2-D and 3-D planner is very subpar. It’s not super user-friendly yet and not easy to use in my opinion. If it were improved upon it would make design files A one stop shop for me but because it’s not very intuitive it makes my processes and systems for client design packages more complicated because I have to use other software programs to utilize that feature.

User Review

Reviewed 5 years ago

I love making pretty design boards to present to my clients and having easy correspondence with them. Doing mostly e-design services, I present the items and my customers purchase on their own. Because of this I have not used the invoice feature and would love for Design Files to pair up with a well known affiliate link company so designers can make a bit of $ in affiliate sales.

Pros

I love that it is easy to use and that the customer support is very responsive.

Cons

There are many times that I am using the Design Files shopping vendors and I drag an item onto my board and it does not show up. Another frustration is when the shopping gallery has "out of stock" items in it. I would love to see more vendors be available and the ability to narrow my search options by more than price, ie. finish, dimensions, customer rating etc. I would love to not have to keep all boards active in the program in order for the "shop it" link to work. Would be nice to download boards for myself and still be able to use those links when the board has been deleted.

Great customer service and enjoyable software to use.

Pros

Love the shop it options and approve tab for clients. Love the boards being able to be sent with all items listed. Clients usually quite impressed with this feature.

Cons

Biggest issue is the quality of graphics when boards are printed out. Lets the software down from a professional perspective !!!! Client not being able to approve item when it is to be purchased by them!!! Having to go back to app every single time I finish something on a board....the questionnaire not having the ability to customise per project....not having a timer option per project to keep track...
