Custom Rackets - Help
DESIGNING YOUR RACKET
It's pretty cool, and pretty easy: Just follow the steps to create your very own customized Wilson racket. You create it. We build it!
The Navigation System
The blocks at the top of your screen will highlight to let you know where you are in the design process. There are 3 core steps to building your racket. It starts by selecting your model, and then it's time to Customize and Personalize leading you to the promise land, Review and Buy.
The Design Module
When you design your racket you will use the Design Module located on the right side of the page. The module will give you thousands — maybe even millions — of options to make your racket perfectly you. When using the module, you will notice that there are several core areas of the bat for you to add your personal touch: Frame, 3 and 9 decals, brand and model logos, bumpers and grommets, and grip. Within most areas you will have multiple elements to customize. You can move from area to area. No need to complete one before moving on to the next. Areas with a red circle are incomplete while those with a yellow checkmark are done and ready to go. You can move on to the Personalize step once you've completed every option.
Racket Images & Angles
Not only do the images of your racket show you how awesome your racket is going to look with each selection you make, you can also use the buttons on the left side of the screen to see different angles to ensure your masterpiece is perfect.
Time to have some fun! When coloring your racket you will have the option to select any color from the provided palette. During each step, the Design Module will automatically provide you with the available color palette for that specific piece and once you select a color it will contain a checkmark and be highlighted to the right of the piece you colored. If you want to change a color all you have to do is click on the specific piece and select a new color. You can always go back to each step to change colors at any time!
Should you ever need a little inspiration to get the creative juices flowing, simply scroll down the page to see a variety of different designs for your specific racket. Just remember, if you select one of these designs, it will automatically be moved into the core design space and remove any options you have previously selected. If you select a racket as inspiration — you are not stuck to only these options. You can go in and make any changes you want, unless otherwise noted.
PERSONALIZING YOUR RACKET
This step allows you to really make your racket your own by adding your name, number, etc. (up to 12 characters, depending on the model). The personalization will be placed on the inside of the throat of the racket, where the racket specs are typically placed. Put your personal touch on your weapon of choice.
PURCHASING YOUR RACKET
Review Your Racket
When you are done with your masterpiece and ready to share or buy it, click the "Continue" button. All steps must be complete for the button to be clickable. It will turn red when available.
Importance of double-checking
On the REVIEW & BUY screen, you will have a chance to review your design to make sure everything looks just like you want and all the information is correct. This is very important because as a custom racket it is non-returnable and non-refundable. DOUBLE CHECK TO MAKE SURE ALL INFORMATION IS CORRECT.
If you want to make a correction or change things up, just click any one of the grey boxes with the pencil in it and you will go back to that exact step where you can modify your racket. Get your racket perfect before you order it because it cannot be returned. After that, we're already bringing your vision to life.
Sharing your masterpiece
You're an artist. A visionary. Show your friends what you just created and reveal to them your true genius! You can share your racket on Facebook, Twitter or send it to all of your family and friends via email by clicking the appropriate icon. This is also a great way to send someone a "hint" on what to buy you for the holidays or your birthday, or just because you're awesome.
Printing your racket spec
Click "View Full Racket Spec" to view and print the specs for your racket. If you want something to hang up to remind you of what's coming, you can refer to this sheet when the right time comes.
