What is the design editor?

The design editor is the best way to create your print files with Gelato. You can access the editor by selecting "Design your print" on the product page and upload images or PDF files.

Tip: You can now also use our integration with Shutterstock, allowing you to create products using 360+ million images. 

Accessing the online design editor

In order to open the design editor, just go the Product Catalogue, select the product you want to print, select the format and orientation and any other customizable options, then click on "Design your print".
