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 Template 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.

Please adjust your artwork in the most balanced and appropriate way possible by referring to the template's red dashed lines.




For the sleeve pieces: Here's how the sleeve piece fits into the body piece:




If your artwork has horizontal patterns like in the photo below, the details may be bent and not fully line up at the connection between the shoulder and the body (red circle), but the bottom of the sleeves will be unaffected.


In the templates, there are gaps as the photo below:


Therefore, if you want the artwork's details in the hoodie's cuffs and sleeves to match together, please refer to the photo below on how to design your artwork so that no detail is cut off.




The cuffs and waistband will have folds (also referred to as inside on the template). These folds will not be visible in the product mockup.



Pocket area: There are 2 design styles of the hoodie's pocket.

Style 1: The artwork on the pocket and the body are completely seamless.



In this style, you should align the artwork so that both pocket areas match with each other on the template.


The darker pocket area on the template is for artwork alignment only. It does not indicate the pocket's print area. The print area of the hoodie's pocket is the lighter pocket area.

Style 2: The body and the pocket have two different artwork designs.



In this style, you can put the artwork for each piece into the corresponding group in the template. This will save you time masking each piece:



Put the artwork for each piece into the corresponding group in the template
Save your file in .PNG format: After completing the above steps, hide the note group, keep the Template and Background groups in your Photoshop file. Then click Save As or press Ctrl + Shift + S) and save the artwork in .PNG format.

Hide the 'note' group
