Product Attributes allow you to specify options, add-ons, and features to products.
Examples of Attributes within the web to print market include things like: Lamination, Product Colour, Bubble Wrap packing, Paper Stock, Allowing your users to Upload their artwork or media files etc.
These can be specified to add cost to the product, or to flag up a feature to the printer once the order is placed.
