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: You can either copy and paste your artwork to the Place your artwork here layer in the template, or click and drag it from your folder to this layer.


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.

Adjust your artwork in the most balanced and appropriate way possible by referring to the template's grey dashed lines.


Placket areas: On this shirt, the right and left plackets overlap each other. To make the artwork appear seamless, duplicate the design in the left placket (front left area) and adjust the artwork to the left side (of your view, or towards the front right area on the template) a range equal to the size of that placket.

Right and left plackets
Determine where the design in the left placket ends and duplicate it
Adjust the artwork to the left side (of your view, or towards the front right area on the template) a range equal to the size of the placket

Save your file in .PNG format: After completing the above steps, hide the Product info and Template groups, keep the Place your artwork here group and Background layer in your Photoshop file. Then click Save As (or press Ctrl + Shift + S) and save the artwork in .PNG format.
