Beach Christmas Photo Template Sticker, How to Center a Photo

Share This:

This beach Christmas photo template sticker comes in two sizes: 1.5 inch and 3 inch. The wording will be easier to read on the larger sticker. Use it on the back of the envelope when sending beach-themed or tropical Christmas cards.

Square Photo Sticker, Beach Christmas Theme

A tropical beach scene of ocean water at the sandy shore is the background for two areas of custom text. I am loving the new fonts that are now available to use at Zazzle and this new sticker shows the modern, handwritten style of Revellyna font. All you need to do is type your choice of wording into the text template lines on the product page.

Add a photo – horizontal (landscape) photos work best – with the focus subject as close to the center as possible. If your photo is not centered, read on. I will explain on this page how to move a photo template. The photo can be moved left or right by the customer in the “customize” area, and it’s easy to do. (You will not be able to move it up and down on this sticker).

How to Center Your Photo Template

Use the “change” button in blue to upload your own photo into the template area, replacing the sample photo seen. In my example I have added the black and white photo of a couple, but it is slightly too far to the right.
If your photo needs to be centered, use the “click to customize further” link beneath the photo template area.

The design page below is what you will see in the customize section. It may look overwhelming, but it’s easy to move the photo and make it centered on the sticker. Follow the steps outlined here.

how to move a photo template
Click on the photo in the list and then move it with the arrows.

On the design page, find your photo in the “text and images” section to the right. Click on it. Then go to the lower left side of the page and use the toggle arrows to move the photo left or right.

Once the photo looks good – keeping it within the circle – click the “done” button at the top of the page and it will take you back to the product page where it can be purchased.

Be sure to change the text as you wish, with your own signature, and choose the size sticker needed. I recommend the larger, 3 inch size.
Because I have made the template with a horizontal sample photo, there will only be room to move the image side to side. If you use a vertical photo, use one with the subject in the center, or contact me (bluehydpdc@gmail.com) and I’ll fit it in for you.

This tutorial for fitting a photo into a template will work for any photo template, on any type of product, at the Zazzle site.

Vertical Photo Cards For Christmas and The New Year

Share This:

Glossy photo cards are the choice of many to send for Christmas and the new year. In the Holiday Store we have a few new vertical photo cards designed with a tropical sea-theme.

The first is a sea blue card with white starfish and white, custom text in modern, swirling font styles. Choose a favorite photo, in vertical (portrait) orientation, and add it to the photo template.

The sample wording which says, “Joyous, Blessed & / Happy New Year” (underneath the line that reads, “wish you a”) can be changed. All glossy photo cards, like this one, in our Photo Card Collection have easy to use templates.

Change the text as you please. Names go on the top line, and be sure to sign for the dog as well! Our pets are part of the family and many couples and families make sure the fur baby is in the pictures.

More examples of how this card’s wording could look:

Sample Text Change 1: Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Sample Text Change 2: Merry & Bright Christmas Season

You may come up with something different, and as long as the wording doesn’t get close to the edge of the card, it will be fine to use.

Don’t want the starfish images on this card? They can be removed in the “Customize” section, or contact me for help with design changes.

The second new glossy photo card in our store was created with newlyweds in mind. Couples love to celebrate that special “first married Christmas” and this vertical card allows couples to share their bliss with friends and family.

These fun, oversized Christmas greeting cards come in three sizes. The largest is shown in the image below, measuring 36 x 48 inches! Or choose the 24 x 36 inch card, or the smaller 18 x 24.
The cards are plastic coated and come with cardboard envelopes and can be mailed – BUT you must buy the postage required. The “Novelty Stamp” shown on the envelope is NOT A REAL STAMP.
To write on this card a Sharpie type pen is needed since the images and text are printed on plastic. This is to make the card durable for mailing. Of course you could always deliver the card in person!
