In defense of cookie cutters

Cookie cutters get a bad rap, but if you start from scratch next time you’re making gingerbread men, you might end up with one of those Pinterest fails.

While there’s no doubt that the world needs space and tools for personal creativity, cookie cutters are templates that save us a lot of time with work.

And the Product Hunt community loves a beautifully-executed time-saver. designstripe shot to the top of the homepage on Sunday with its library of customizable illustrations. The tool’s online editor lets you swap out almost every object from the handmade illustrations, generate new color platelets (or add your own), and adjust the visual look of the graphic, even adding background elements to the image.

Imagine not just being able to customize your gingerbread man’s buttons, but adjusting its shape and house and giving him all the right colors with a tap.

“A big goal for us is to make sure that everything you make with designstripe comes out looking amazing,” wrote maker James Daly. For the future, the team is looking at templates, animations, and 3D (Canva, are you watching?)

Time-to-value directly correlates with how quickly (and easily) customer data can be imported into your product. This process, AKA data onboarding, is typically inefficient, error-prone, and siphons your team's resources.

What if you could:

  • Onboard customers faster, in 1-click.
  • Import customer data in less than 60 seconds.
  • Cut hours off formatting spreadsheet data.

Flatfile untangles the messy spreadsheet data your customers need to import, freeing your support (or worse, your engineering team) from wrangling Excel data for hours.

No messy CSV templates, or custom import scripts. Drive customers to value faster by upgrading their data onboarding experience with Flatfile.
