You can use the preset colors in the pallet, or to add a custom color click the (+) button at the top to add a new color. Once selected you can use the color picker to select a color. You may also enter (#) Hexa or CMYK codes.

3. Design Tips

Creating a good looking item is easy when using our online design studio. But there are so many more features built in that can turn a good design into a great design! Here are some tips and tricks that will allow you to get the most out of our online design tools.

Our online designer has a one-click photo background remover built in, making it easier than ever to get a professionally designed look to your item. Simply upload your photo, then click the remove background button in the top bar.

Trying to get your element centered? Use the align tool to position your element perfectly on the canvas.

When adding a photo or other elements to the canvas, they typically end up on the top layer. To move an item to a different layer, either up or down, click the layer button in the top bar and move up or down using the arrows. Single arrows move one layer per click. Double arrow moves all the way to the top or bottom with one click.

Understanding the difference between a bleed, a trim line and a margin will ensure your item turns out as expected. Not following guidelines for bleeds and margins may produce unexpected problems, like text or photo cut too close, or white lines around the edges of your printed item.

Bleed: Extend background images or colors all the way to the edge of the canvas.

Trim: This is the approximate area where item will be cut.

Safety Area: All critical elements including text, images, logos, etc. must be kept inside this area.

When adding text to a design, it’s important to remember to keep the minimum font size to at least 7 pt. When viewing your design on a computer screen, it’s easy to forget the actual printed size of your item. For example, a business card is only 2″ x 3.5″ and text can easily become unreadable if too small.

When uploading a photo or logo, try to use a larger file size with a higher resolution of at least 300 DPI (dots per inch). This way your image will appear crisp when printed. Smaller files with a lower resolution will print with a blurry, pixelated appearance. The easiest way to determine if your photo has a good resolution is to look at the file size. Your file size should be a minimum of 1mb or 1024kb.
