The Product Tab
The product tab is where you will find available options for your product, like the product color. From this tab, you can also easily switch to a different product from the list on the left side of the designer under the available color options.
The Designs Tab
The Designs tab is the heart and soul of the designer. This is where you will find all the available design options, clipart, templates, backgrounds, shapes.
On the left hand side of the designer is the elements pane, indicated by the surrounding gray background that separates it from the designer canvas. This is where you will find drop down options for categories and subcategories of each design type, with the art elements displayed beneath them. Furthest to the left are the Design Type options, these include:
The majority of our design elements and clipart can be found under the 'Designs' label. Designs can be sorted by category, sub-category, alphabetically by name, or search for a piece of art by name or tag.
The backgrounds tab features fills you can use to cover the designable area of a product. These are handy for banners, popup tents and other promotional items.
Templates are pre-designed artwork that include editable elements, such as text.
Generate scannable QR codes for your products that can take a customer straight to a URL, address an email, or call a phone number.
Basic shapes and polygons that can be used in conjunction with other design elements to create that unique look you're going for.
Hand-drawing allows you to free-hand create elements using your mouse. There are three modes; Line mode allows you to draw using only straight lines. The pencil tool will let you draw freely with your mouse, while the Bazier Path tool allows you to create points and curves.
My Gallery holds all the images and artwork you have uploaded during your session, making them easily available for use.
Distress Effects are effects that can be layered over elements to create a unique pattern or design.
