Step 5: Editing text

Enter your content by hovering over desired text and clicking Edit. This opens the Edit Text box which allows changing the font, size, color, and alignment of your text. If you'd only like to change part of the text, simply highlight just that portion.

For other adjustments like letter spacing and rotation, click Open Advanced Options

Note: Sometimes when changing the font, it may no longer properly fit in the text box. A red + may appear, or parts of the text will end up on separate lines. Hover over the text until the Scale symbol appears in the bottom right corner. This will allow you to enlarge the text box by clicking and dragging. Reposition the text when finished.

Step 7: Add your own image

To upload your own logo/image, click the Add Image button. Navigate to your desired file and select Upload. Accepted files are JPEG, PNG, and PDF. For best results, choose a high-resolution image that is at least 300 ppi (pixels per inch).

A PNG or PDF file that supports transparency is recommended if you'd like the card background color to show through (Example: logos or art with a solid white background).

Move the image by clicking and dragging. To adjust, click Edit. If you'd like to change the image size, be sure that Maintain Aspect Ratio is checked. This ensures that your image will not become distorted when resizing.

Click out of the Edit Image box. Adjust the size by hovering over bottom right corner. When Scale appears, click and drag to size image appropriately.
