Whether it's for your employees, clients or customers, our design editor makes it quick and easy for you to create personalised cards that are right for your business!
Here's a few tips to help get you started...
ADD AN IMAGE
You can upload your own image or company photo to the card template, or you can select an image to use from our design galleries. Then, use our design editor to resize, rotate, move and add style effects.
Upload an image at the best quality you can, ideally a resolution of 300dpi and at least 1000px to ensure your card looks sharp and clear when printed.
Upload Your Own Image
Click on the 'My Gallery' tab then click 'Upload your Image, PDF or EPS'.
Here you can choose to upload images from your device, Facebook or Instagram accounts or to upload a PDF/EPS.
Use Our Images
We have plenty of images and clipart for you to choose from! Photos, illustrations, greetings, text banners, photos frames...
Simply open the 'Clipart and Images' tab, then choose a gallery from the drop-down menu before selecting an image to use.
Use Premium Photos
Choose from over 140 million premium photos and artworks, to personalise your card with the perfect images!
Click on 'My Gallery' then 'Upload your Image, PDF or EPS' and then 'Premium Photos'. Simply select and click on your chosen image to add it to the design.
Add A Background
To change the background image, click on 'Edit Background'.
Here you can take your pick from our gallery of background images that includes photos and illustrations, prints and patterns and artistic images. Alternatively, you can upload your own image or simply select a colour to use.
Add A Photo Collage
Create a photo collage design by clicking on 'Collages' then selecting your preferred photo grid arrangement.
To select each grid, click on the relevant camera icon. Then replace the image by either uploading your own to use or by choosing an image from our galleries.
Edit Your Image
Click on the 'Image Editing' tab to open up our online image editing tools.
Here you can crop your image, add colour filters, adjust the brightness and contrast or even add stylistic overlays.
Resize The Image
Click on the arrows icon displayed on the bottom-right corner of the image and drag to adjust the dimensions.
Rotate The Image
Click on the arrow icon displayed on the top-right corner of the image and drag to rotate the image.
Move The Image
Click anywhere on the image then drag to move it into position.
Guidelines will appear over the template when your image is positioned centrally on the card's design.
You can upload images in JPG, PNG, SVG, PDF and EPS formats. You can also upload images from your Facebook and Instagram accounts.
For the best print results, we recommend you upload image files at the highest quality and resolution that you can. A size close to 3000x3000px and with a resolution of 300 dpi would be ideal if possible.
No, you're OK to upload your images and photos in RGB format. We'll convert your finished design to CMYK before printing. Please be aware that colours displayed on monitors and screens will always look more vibrant and brighter than the final printed colours.
Our design editor includes a great array of images and design elements you can use, each specially selected to help you create a professional looking greeting card for your business! Simply browse our image galleries to find illustrations, photos, greetings, banners, shapes, picture frames...
You're welcome to use any image featured in our 'Clipart and Images' galleries and our 'Edit Background' image galleries completely free of charge!
However, if you are using/adding images from the Premium Photos gallery, you will charged 99p per image used, which will be added on to your total order cost. For example, if you add two images onto your card's design, then £1.98 will be added onto your overall order cost.
You can upload and add as many images as you like!
Please note, that if you're adding images from the Premium Photos gallery, you will be charged 99p per image used.
If you're customising one of our pre-designed card templates, your image may be added behind the masked area of the design template. This means that parts of your image may be masked and not visible.
ADD YOUR LOGO
Create a branded card for your business by uploading an image of your company logo to the card design. Then, use our design editor to resize, rotate and position your logo so it fits just right.
It's best to upload your logo image with a transparent background so that it can be placed anywhere on the design.
Also, make sure that your logo has a good image resolution, ideally 300dpi.

If you're customising one of our pre-designed card templates, your logo image may be added behind the masked area of the design template. This means that some of your logo may be masked and not visible until you adjust the size and position of your logo on the design template.
In this instance, you can simply add your company name to the design as text using the 'Text' tool.
You can add your own personal message or company name to the card using our text editor. Then, customise the text style to suit your brand, such as the font type and colour, shape and size before moving your text into place.
To ensure your greeting is clearly readable when printed, make sure your text size isn’t too small and choose a text colour that has a good contrast against the background colour(s).
Add Your Text
Click the 'Text' tab and type your personal message into the box.
Use your Enter key if you want the text to be displayed on multiple lines.
Style Your Text
To change the text colour, simply select one the colour swatches.
Or choose any colour you like using the Colour box tool! Use this to perfectly match your brand colours by entering the specific colour hex codes.

Yes! With our design editor, you can overlay the design elements in any way you like!
Sorry no, you cannot upload your own font to use with our design editor. You could however upload and add an image of your message/company name, created in your preferred text, to use on the card template.
If you're customising one of our pre-designed card templates, your text may be added behind the masked area of the design template. This means that some of your text may be masked and not visible until you adjust the size and position of your text within the design template.
