A. Product's template

Kindly visit this link to download the artwork template for Tumbler 30oz.

Refer to the below instruction to see how the template will be reflected on the actual product:

There are 2 ways to design this product's artwork:

Directly design on the product's template when creating a new campaign using our Campaign Editor.
Download the product's template from our Catalog and design using Photoshop.

Please note the following details in the template:

Dimension: 3300 x 2000 px.
Resolution: 150 dpi.
Area within red lines (Print Area): Artwork's print area. Your artwork must cover this entire area, not just the safe area.
Area within blue lines (Safe Area): Artwork's safe print area. The artwork in these areas will wrap around the product because it is cylindrical in shape. The template has been separated into 2 areas within blue lines (also called "ZONE A" and "ZONE B"). Important details of your artwork should be placed within these areas.
Horizontal grey dashed lines (Center Line): These can be used as a guide to center your artwork on the template.

B. Design guideline

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:

Hide the Product info (Hide this) group, and the Layer 0 layer in the Template (DO NOT DELETE!) group.

Copy and paste your artwork to the Place your artwork here group in the template, or click and drag it from your folder to this group.

Adjust your artwork:

Cover the Print Area completely with your artwork.

Place important artwork details (such as texts, selling points, etc.) within the Safe Area.

Design tips: As mentioned in section A, the tumbler is cylindrical in shape, so the print will wrap around it. As a result, the designs near the edge of the Safe Area will have a certain flatness as shown below.

In the example above, you can easily see that the green circle will not be distorted, and the blue circle and yellow circle will be flattened on both sides. You should pay attention to these details to align your selling points and important artwork details properly. It is recommended to put the most important artwork details in the center of Zone A and Zone B.

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 group in your Photoshop file. Then click Save As (or press Ctrl + Shift + S) and save the artwork in .PNG or .JPEG format.

Those are all the steps to design your artwork for Tumbler 30oz. Then, you can upload this artwork and launch new campaigns by following the instructions in this article.
