How do I use the design templates?
Our templates allow you to create perfectly sized designs and achieve greater precision when it comes to design placement on the product. The templates come in two file formats: Adobe Photoshop file (PSD), and Adobe Illustrator file (AI).
Step 1: Download the template from the Product Creator
Click Start designing next to the Print Provider of your choice on any product page. If templates are available for the chosen product, you can access them by clicking the Product info icon, then Download design template. The templates will be automatically downloaded in a ZIP format.
Step 2: Open the template file
To open and edit these templates, you’ll need to use Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. You can also use Photopea, a free online tool that will accept Photoshop (PSD) files.
Once you open the templates, you’ll be greeted with the sizing dimensions for the product that you’re designing.
Step 3: Add your design to the template
Once the template is open, you’ll be able to add your design. The easiest way is by dragging it into the designing software. Make sure that the important design elements are placed within the safe area (dashed line), and all of the bleed areas are covered with the background color.
Step 4: Hide the template layers before exporting the design
When you’re happy with the placement of the design on the product, you’ll need to disable some of the guide layers and background layers before exporting the design.
Step 5: Upload the design to Printify
Now you’re able to upload your final design to Printify. Open the product in the Product Creator, or click Start designing if creating it from scratch.
If the item has multiple variants: drag your design into the Product Creator and select the size variant for your design, then click Make a specific design for… button. Then repeat the same for each variant. This will ensure that the particular design will be sized perfectly for the specific variant. Read more.
