STEP ONE - SELECT 1A TEMPLATES OR 1B UPLOAD IMAGE

As mentioned before, you can choose 1A TEMPLATES to use a label we have pre-designed for you or 1B UPLOAD IMAGE to use your own designed label.

To use our pre-designed labels, make sure to click 1A TEMPLATES. A drop-down called ‘Label Design’ will appear. From there, you can click any of the options available and that option will populate in our Live Preview.

You can instead decide to upload your own label. To upload your own label, make sure to click 1B UPLOAD IMAGE.  

If you have design skills, feel free to do what you do best! When you are ready for upload, use our Canva template to get the right sizing and shape of your label.

Your label is now ready to upload into our software!
