How To Add Text to Party Printables

How To Add Text to Party Printables

As many of you already know, I have an Etsy Shop called Dunham Design Company where I design and sell party printables that the buyer prints in the comfort of his/her own home.  I sell all kinds of themed party printables as well as everything from invitations, to cupcake wrappers, to favor boxes and more! I have been asked how to add text to the printable invitations so here is a very easy and free way to do it from your home computer. {You can not do this with I-Pads, I-Phones, or similar devices.}

Step 1

Go to this Free online program called Pixlr:  http://apps.pixlr.com/express/  

Step 2

Select Browse

Step 3

Select the File you want to add text to and Open it.  {The file should have already been saved in your computer.}

Step 4

Along the bottom of your screen, select the Type icon and click it.

Step 5

Select the Font you want in any category.

Step 6

Type the text in the text box at the bottom.  You will notice text appearing on top of your printable on the computer screen.  You can make the text bigger or smaller by clicking and holding on the dots on the square box surrounding your text.  {see photos 2 and 3 below} Click and hold the dot and make the text box fit where you want the text to appear.

Step 7

Select Left, Middle, or Right Justify for the text.

Step 8

Select Color of the text.

Step 9

Once you are finished filling in all three spaces of the printable invitation, select to Save it at 100%.  Close Pixlr and open the saved file from your computer.  Now you can print the invitation with your own personal text! It's really very easy! Tip: You can also use this same tutorial to add text to other types of printables such as bunting!
