Tips for designing your own

E-mail Print PDF

Our Design your own sign builder allows you to modify options to suit your own preferences. Some simple principles apply:

  • Set your currency and preferred sign size first. Changing later will reset all options.
  • Every image or piece of text is contained in it's own box.
  • Each box can only contain either a single image OR piece of text BUT NOT BOTH.
  • You can add your own boxes for a complex design or delete them too.
  • Box edges will not be visible in your finished sign.
  • Boxes can be dragged around and edges of boxes can overlap.

First Step - Set your Currency and Size

Before you do anything, (and if you haven't already) please select your preferred currency followed by your preferred product size.

Selecting a box

To change the contents of a box you need to select it. To select a box just left click anywhere inside a box: the border will turn red when it's selected correctly.

Changing a box's contents

Even if a box contains image or text, once selected you can change its contents easily by using the options on the right side. You can for example type in some new text OR select an image from the available designs.
IMPORTANT: To see your new changes you must click APPLY MY CHANGES. The preview will update to show your changes.

Resizing Boxes

You can resize a box by dragging the bottom right corner. If the resized box contains an image, the image will resize also. TIP: If you hold SHIFT on your keyboard wile resizing the image will maintain its proportions while you resize.

Resizing a box which contains text will not increase the size of the text but will control how the text "wraps" or flows from one to two lines. TIP: To increase the size of your text just change the font-size for the drop-down men on the right side.
