YR, your global customization partner, is now a CreateMe Technologies company.

For over 10 years, we’ve enabled companies like yours to build stronger relationships with your audiences through customization experiences. We’re pioneers in product customization for the retail and event industries, ready to partner with your brand – whether you’re launching a small-scale project or an international campaign.

As we continue our mission to reinvent the customization space, we’ve joined forces with CreateMe. They are automating processes by combining AI, robotics, and human ingenuity, to enable on-demand, customized product creation at speed and scale — streamlining design, eliminating waste, and helping brands go from concept to consumer faster than ever.

“After a decade of YR customizing global apparel brands, CreateMe will provide us with deeply complementary knowledge, data and experience across design, manufacturing and live experiences. The first global offer for the apparel industry that supports every step from concept to consumer experience will emerge from our new union,” says YR CEO Tim Williams.

YR Software

YR’s customization experiences are powered by fun, intuitive software that features innovative design tools that allow audiences to unleash their creativity and make one-off versions of your products.

At the heart of customization is a careful balance of creative freedom and pre-approved branded content.

Written entirely in-house, YR’s software can be developed to suit your specific requirements, including adding your branding, accommodating your product, extensive data capture, a comprehensive order management system and powerful analytics tools.

The latest addition to our offering – YR Web Renderer – is an image rendering engine that can be plugged into any e-commerce site.

As the demand for customization increases, we remain at the forefront of innovation. YR software is built entirely in-house, with development always informed by evolving consumer behaviour. Our mantra is design, print, love.
