BASE DESIGN

  Start with a base design by inserting Clip Art/Logo & other Text Boxes you want in all your signs.

 

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO PERSONALIZE

Add a Text Box for each component you want personalized.

 

Some templates may have Names and Numbers already set up.  If you don't want either the names or numbers, just select the item you want to remove on your canvas & select Remove in the selected Text Box Options frame.

 

READY TO PERSONALIZE

 This tool will allow you to personalize each text box in your design.

 

IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE TEXT BOX, each Text Box can be personalized.

 

BUT, YOU ONLY NEED TO PERSONALIZE THE TEXT BOXES YOU WANT.

 

In this example: BOOKER & BLUEJAYS are in the Base Design.  So you don't need to add variations in the Personalization Popup for those Text Boxes.  Only the Names (Alexander) need added variations as below.

You add variations (or different Names & Numbers) through the Add a New Variation button.
