What is the Design Elements Library?
The design elements library is our vast collection of design parts and YES, it's FREE for you to use ! You will see a large part of this library within the design studio on our website.
We use these design elements to create the design ideas for you and they are also available to you to use in your designs / customizations.
Listed below are descriptions of all the different types of design elements and how they can be use in creating your masterpieces!
Backgrounds of the designs are usually the foundation from which you can customize.
Our library includes thousands of backgrounds consisting of patterns, textures, fine art, and photos.
Many of these patterns and textures can be customized to your liking; you can change the colors, and the density of the patterns & textures.
Ribbons allows you to enhance your design, especially if you are using two different backgrounds.
Select from a solid color style of ribbon to make text more legible or add a touch of flare with hearts, stitching, or a tribal design.
Frames create a focal point on busy backgrounds.
Frames come in many different shapes & styles. Our library has all the classics, as well as stylistic frames such as piano keys, barbed wire, sports jerseys, Easter, etc.. These stylistic frames can really enhance thematic designs.

Tools to "Create Your Own" Design Elements
Our designers found that they were getting customer requests for design elements that they had not yet considered creating, so they asked our computer engineers to create "makers" for design elements!
Pattern Makers - we have a number of pattern makers to help you create your own patterns. You can select any content (e.g. graphics, text) combinations to create your own pattern.
Couple Makers - this is super fun! Just select a graphic and it will create a couple where the two graphics are facing each other! From Dino couples, to cat & dog couples, to pirates, to monsters, or any one of the thousands of graphics at your disposal.
Mascot Badge Maker - Our mascot maker enables you to create your very own mascot badge. Customize the top & bottom text, change the established year, select any graphic, and you will have your very own badge.
Ribbon Maker - sometimes a solid color ribbon is just not enough! Create your own ribbon by selecting ANY background and voila you have a ribbon with that background!
