Getting started - Designing your greeting card

Sign in to your account, choose a card size, upload your image file, and customise your card by adding text.

Adding an image to your card design

Uploading an image to your card design is straightforward. Supported image file types you can upload include PNG, JPG, TIFF, SVG, and PDF formats.

Redcliffe displays and prints card designs in sRGB. Most modern cameras are set by default to use the sRGB colour space, so this means you will not have to do anything more.

Allow your image to go outside the safe area

For best results allow your image to go slightly OUTSIDE the red dotted lines of the safe area.

In the example above, there will be no unsightly grey edge when the card is trimmed as the image has been allowed to go beyond the red dotted lines.

Adding & formatting text

Add text to the inside of the card if you wish. Remember to keep your text within the Safe Area which is highlighted with a red dotted line.

You can only enter one line of text at a time, do not try to copy and paste a large block of text.

How do I add a © copyright symbol?
- On a PC hold down the 'Alt' key and key in the numerals 0169. When you next lift your finger off 'Alt', the copyright symbol will appear. You must use the numeric keypad on the right of the keyboard.
- On a Mac simply enter Option + G

Keep your text within the safe area

In the example above, the word "Strawberry" needs to be placed within the dotted red line to ensure that it is included in the final card.

Saving your card design
