How To: Use Clipart in Your Designs

Using clipart in your Photobooks, greeting cards and posters is a great way to add some nice embellishments or fill those gaps in your design that just feel like they need a little something. It gives that added touch of personalization and makes it feel a bit more like a scrap booking project too.

Some of you may not be sure what clipart is exactly. Well, the best way I can explain it is to think of them like stickers. You pick one and place it on top of your design much like you would a sticker if you were to add one to the printed copy. The perk here, is you can move it and re-size it as needed.

Adding clipart to your project is easy. Just get into customize mode (by clicking customize or being in designer mode from the get go) and click the clipart tab. From there, you will see several categories with images in them. Those are your clipart images. Just drag one on to your design and voila, you have used clipart. Browse around and see what is there. You may find that perfect one to really make a page in your Photobook or cover of your greeting card really work for you.

Canada Day

Happy Canada Day to all of our Canadian Groupbookers out there!

We hope the weather is good in your part of the country and enjoy all the Canada Day festivities, BBQs and Fireworks.

Does anyone have any Canada Day Traditions?
For me, it is going to the zoo with my wife and son, and then fireworks later that evening, if my boy still awake that is. He’s usually burnt off what energy he has by the time it gets dark.

Launch Day

Well today is the day. Our Photobooks are live for order. We also have posters, calendars and greeting cards for launch so be sure to check those out too. We are so excited that we can offer these books to you now. We really think we have a great system for making these books and hope you find the same when you try it out.
