Gift Wrap Posters

OCT 15, 2013

Check out Spoonflower crew member Allie's quick Photoshop tutorial for turning your own artwork or free downloadable printables into beautiful posters! 


Looking for an easy update to an empty wall? Spoonflower's gift wrap opens endless opportunities for inexpensive DIY artwork, and you can print multiple posters on one roll!

 

How to: 

Create a new document in Adobe Photoshop sized for one roll of gift wrap– 26" x 72".

I like to turn on rulers (Command R) and grid lines (Command ') to help align elements properly.


Next I opened all the poster files in Photoshop to add them to one file. 


Using copy and paste I pasted each image into my posters file. 

The transform function can be used to turn vertical images horiztonal to maximize the number of images you can fit per roll. All of my images were 18" x 24" so I was able to squeeze in 4 posters.


Once I had all images in one file, I saved as a PNG and was ready to upload to my Spoonflower account!

Once uploaded to Spoonflower I chose centered repeat on gift wrap and was ready to place my order! 

Using an X-Acto knife and straight edge I cut my posters apart. 


Now they're ready to frame and hang!
