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.

Accessing the online design editor

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

All our fonts support Latin characters. If you would like to add Cyrillic script, some of our fonts do support it, but some not. If the text disappears or is shown as squares it doesn't support Cyrillic. You could try instead some of free fonts that shall support it: Arial, Didact Gothic, Fira Sans font family, Monserrat, Noto font family, Open Sans, Oswald, PlayFair font family, Pacifico. 

If you wish to add a text, consisted of other characters/alphabets (e.g. Arabic alphabet, Japanese writing, Greek etc.) and to make it a part of his/her design, you may create a photo including the text and to upload it to an empty photo box in the editor (as a *pdf, *jpeg, *png file)

Warnings

When you upload an image, our system will automatically check its resolution and show a warning message if needed. More info here.
