Here are the step-by-step instructions to design their products on Canva and import their files into viaGlamour.
Downloading PDF and PNG files
PDF (Portable Document Format) and PNG (Portable Network Graphics) are both file formats that are commonly used for digital graphics. However, they serve different purposes and have different features.
PDFs are typically used for printing and sharing documents that contain text, images, and other graphics. They are a popular choice for product designs because they can be easily shared and printed in high quality. PDFs can be opened and viewed on almost any device, making them a versatile file format.
On the other hand, PNGs are typically used for web graphics and digital images. They are ideal for product photographs because they support transparency, which means that the background of the image can be removed. This is important for product photographs because it allows the product to be displayed on different backgrounds without any visible white space.
Transparency is a key feature of PNGs because it allows the background of the image to be removed, leaving only the product itself. This makes it easy to place the product on different backgrounds without any visible white space. When exporting a transparent PNG from Canva, ensure that the background of the design is removed or set to transparent. When you upload your transparent PNG into viaGlamour you'll see your design printed on the products with the container's packaging color still visible beneath your logo.
When designing products on Canva, it is recommended that PDF files have a white background. viaGlamour prefer PDFs to have a white background to ensure that the colors in the design are accurate and consistent. The white background will automatically be removed from the design before it gets transferred onto your container. Additionally, a white background can help prevent any issues with the design bleeding into the product background or interfering with the printing process.
To export a print-ready PDF file from Canva, select the "PDF - Print" option under the "File type" dropdown menu. This will ensure that the file is optimized for printing and includes all the necessary elements, such as crop marks and bleed lines. Make sure to review the PDF before sending it to the printer to ensure that the design is accurate and meets all the necessary specifications.
