Let's explore how designs are created in more detail!

How do you create a design?

In our design studio, we have backgrounds & foregrounds.

You get to decide what you want for your background and what you want for you foreground.

The background of your product can be any of the following:

Art - can be Van Gogh's famous painings or your child's art work!
Photos - scenery, your kids, any photo you took.
Your Own Design - if you are good with design tools - have at it - create something and upload it!
Patterns - patterns repeat in both directions and come in so many different styles.
Ribbons - a ribbon repeats in one direction and can be used for your background.
Solid Color - some people prefer the elegance of a simple color for a background.
Multiple Backgrounds - usually single, double or triple and can be organzied in various configurations

At YouCustomizeIt - the choice of the background of your products it truly yours.  Our goal is to inspire you with various design templates that you can them customize to create exactly what you want!

Foregrounds are truly a personal choice. Foreground choices include text, monograms, graphics, frames and various combinations of these design elements.

Name / Text on top of a background is the most common way of adding a foreground.  It can be a simple initial or name to a paragraph or a quote.

Monograms are also very popular; they range from a simple initital to the classic 3 letters.  Monograms also come in many different styles; both masculine and feminine styles.
