Watch above video and follow the step You will end up with nicely prepared set of greeting cards.
What are templates and how to work with them.
To create a template for a greeting card we add a layer with a PNG file with transparent areas. You can use sample templates provided by Hefest or upload your own images. When templates are ready you show them grouped by topics (see how to group products by media). Now your customers can upload their images into these templates to create greeting cards which you will print for them.
Take a look at the working example.
Add size or sizes which you’re going to use for the uploaded template.
- Add product
- Select Media
- Select Size
- Select Printer
- Add price
- Select orientation if it’s a landscape. If it’s a portrait leave ‘Landscape’ checkbox unchecked.
- Select template. (If you don’t see any templates at this step check template and size ratio and orientation. See: Important Notice)
You are done!
But you can also make a nice presentation of all your greeting cards which you print on this media.
By the way
we have a preset with two dozens of Christmas Cards. Check it out in Products Presets section of your Management Panel.
Learn how to work with Products Presets. You can use this preset as a sample.
Keep in mind that the Template and the Size must have the same ratio of the sides and orientation. You will not be able to add a template to the size if they have different ratio and orientation. For example, if your template is 10 x 20cm landscape, you have to create a product with size ratio 1:2 with landscape orientation.
