Are you sitting comfortably? Then let’s begin!
Step one: Prepare your artwork
Before we dive into the website builder, we want to highlight a few key artwork checks that you should make before you start uploading.
- Resolution – make sure your file is vector or minimum 300 dpi
- File dimensions – the optimum file size is 3733 × 2577 pixels
- Format – we recommend a vector PDF file format for upload
- Typography – avoid very thin text/fonts as these can print poorly
Our Personalised Face Mask builder will flag if your file has any resolution issues, so look our for this message and adjust your artwork accordingly if needed.
Step two: select mask options
Before uploading your design you’ll need to select the quantity and type of Face Mask you require. You can find out more about the full range here. You will also need to select whether you would like to order Carbon Filters with your masks, which you can also order separately if you want to stock up at a later date
Once you’ve selected your options, hit ‘continue’ to head to the upload step!
Step three: upload your personalised design
Our Personalised Face Mask builder is very user friendly to help you make sure you get your design just right.
1. Upload your chosen artwork
Click ‘Upload photo‘ and then select the desired file from your device. You will need to then click and drag this file onto the mask template. (Please note that if you are using a mobile device, it helps to turn this to landscape to ease the drag and drop process).
2. Edit your photo
- Click ‘Edit your photo‘ to adjust any proportions or anchors directly in the builder, to make sure you get your design just where you want it.
- Make sure to follow the on screen guides to ensure that your artwork stays within the ‘safe area’ but also extends over the bleed area.
If you decide at this stage that you’d like to use one of our artwork templates, you can click ‘Browse free design library‘ to see what’s on offer!
