Using Campaign Editor

Kindly follow the instructions in this article on how to edit your campaign's design in the Campaign Editor.

Using Photoshop

Add artwork to the template: On your device, click and drag your artwork from your folder to the Place your artwork here group in the template file as in the photo below.

Adjust your artwork: This product is made up of different pieces that have been put together. Therefore, you should design them carefully so that these pieces fit each other.

To ensure accurate design, you should enable grids to help with connecting design patterns between each piece.

For example: Your design includes a circle in the middle of the product as in the image below. It should be equally split in half and placed in a symmetrical position on the left and right pieces.

In the Waistband section, please adjust your artwork in the most balanced and appropriate way possible by referring to the template's grey lines (alignment lines).

Make sure that your artwork covers the entire Print Area within the red lines.

Keep a safe distance between important artwork details and the lines around the Safe Area.

Save your file: After completing the above steps, hide the Product info (Hide this) and Template (DO NOT DELETE!) groups, keep the Place your artwork here and Background groups in your Photoshop file. Then click Save As (or press Ctrl + Shift + S) and save the artwork in .PNG or .JPEG format.
