In three easy steps you can design the final look of your card. You will need to upload your logo,
place and resize it and design your text. Detailed instructions for each step can be found below.
Or watch our tutorial video to quickly learn how to use our new design interface.
How it works
We will use this design to add your logo and text to the animated card after your place your order.
We will send it to you for final approval. You will not be able to preview the animated card with
this design, but this gives you an idea how the final frame of the animated card will look with your
text design and logo placement.
Uploading your logo
Please upload a large enough logo with a transparent background in .png format.
To upload your logo, click on the upload button at the top of the design interface.
After uploading your logo, the logo will be displayed in the default position in the design
preview. You can move your logo by selecting it with your mouse and moving it to a new position
while holding down the mouse button.
You can resize the logo to be smaller than the original size by using your mouse to pull on the
boundary corner of the logo. There will be a boundary guide in the preview that will not be
visible in the final card.
Please make sure the logo is clearly visible against the background color. Generally you will
want to select a card with a contrasting background color to ensure good visibility of your
logo. In the video tutorial you can see examples of good and sub-par logo placement.
You can upload a different version of your logo if the current version does not work on the
background of the card you have chosen. Sometimes the best solution is to ask for expert help
in making your logo stand out in your card of choice. We are happy to help you with this for
a small fee. Please contact us for more information.
