All these feature they have but I am pointing some important feature specially.
Same page design.  Customer can design product like T-shirt, Mug, Any other product directly in product details page and finish buying in single step. but this is not implemented by other seller. Normally other seller did multiple step like saving then buying.
Also i like very simplicity of this extension. If you look their product adding page. Only price need to add for Artwork and text and enabling. this steps is very complex with other extension.
Another very important i should mention. They are allowing admin to download full design with separate parts for printing. so no need any extra time cost for admin to redesign by photoshop
Here I am giving some more feature details that they mentioned

Product Design Page

Product Design page is very simple to use, easy to Understand. Separate tabs for Artwork, Text adding and Custom Images uploading.

Artwork Tab: Customer can easily add artwork and change position easily by drag and drop function, Can resize artwork. only single click function. Customer can reset design and delete any part of design



Text Add Tab: anyone can add Custom Text to design and style text by changing font, color, Effect, font-size, more easy than normal text editor. Can easily change text position by Drag and drop function on design.

Image Upload Tab: From this section customer can upload any kind of custom Artwork or logo by himself to make design more unique. Very easy to upload and place custom artwork or logo to design.



Price Change:  Admin Can setup price for each Artwork and Text for Design. This price will be added with original price during design. as price will be change dynamically so customer will not be confused about product price.
