How to Use Promotional Overlays for Social Media

Attention, artists! Here’s how you can promote your shop during Spoonflower’s upcoming sales using our free promotional overlays. 

1. Download the folder of overlays.

2. Insert your own image under the promotional copy layer of one (or more) of the provided graphics. (Hint: If you’re not sure how to do this, please scroll down to the bottom of this post for instructions on how to do this using Canva, with which you can do this for free.) 

3. Share your new image on the first day of the related promo on Facebook and/or Instagram to encourage your customers to shop your designs while the promotion lasts! Not sure what image to post with your overlays? Check out our tried-and-true social media tips here

4. In the post caption(s), remember to include the full length of the promotion period, which you can find above. 

5. To access renders of your design on a range of Spoonflower products, select a design from your Design Library, then click View All Products from the left-side menu. From there, right-click any render to save it to your desktop. (Vocab hint: A render is an image that shows what your unique design would look like on our products.) 

Insider Tip:

Did you know you can download a small, medium or large file? Right-click the render you want to open in a new tab. Look for /m/ in the file string and change it to /s/ for a smaller image or /l/ for a larger image and like magic, you’ve just adjusted the size of the image! 

Overlay Instructions Using Canva

1. Once you’ve downloaded the overlays, you can use Canva to create a free template of an Instagram post or Facebook post. (Hint: This process works for Instagram Stories and other images too!)

2. In Canva, select the option to create a blank post, which will bring up a blank post template.

3. Then, drag and drop the overlay into the social media post template, which will only take up part of the space. Although the overlay may look like an entire image, you’ll be adding your image layer on top of the overlay text layer. The end result being sort of like a collage, where one image is made out of two different images.

4. Individually drag each of the turquoise lines, which indicate the edges of the overlay image, to fit each of the post’s edges.

5. Then drag and drop the image of your design/product to fill the rest of the template space, again dragging each of the four turquoise lines to line up with the post’s edges.

6. That’s it, you did it! Now post your image to social media like the boss that you are!
