In order for text in your design to be easily customizable on site, it is important that this is set up properly in your files. See below for text formatting and best practices to optimize your design in our customizer.
SEPARATING TEXT BOXES
Due to the way our customizer works, all text in each text box must have the same settings applied (i.e. font, font size, font color, leading, tracking, etc.). For this example below, you’ll notice the differing font styles (placed in different text boxes) and how it appears in our customizer.
*NOTE: To ensure easier customization of your design, please try to place the name or family name in it’s own text box in your files if possible.
KEEP TEXT EDITABLE (WHEN POSSIBLE)
Minted customers love editing text to customize designs, so we encourage designers to keep text in editable (non-outlined) form as often as much as possible. Our customizer unfortunately cannot accommodate the following as editable text, so please outline text in your files in these situations.
* AVOID TEXT EFFECTS
Our customizer cannot accommodate warped effects, so please do not apply this effect to text.
Our customizer cannot currently accommodate glyphs in editable textboxes. If your design includes any glyphs that are attached to customizable text, these glyphs need to either be removed from your design entirely, or be outlined and separated from customizable text.
REMINDER! USE TRUE TEXTBOXES
A crucial step in creating textboxes in your files is to click and drag with the text tool, not simply click. The action of clicking and dragging creates a “true” textbox that will work properly in our customizer and allow more text to fit in this space if a customer desires. A great way to check if your textbox is correct is to try to resize one in your file. If you notice the text warps/stretches, this means your textbox needs to be revised.
*NOTE: Make sure to extend your textboxes to the edge of the inner guides in your templates when possible. This will help accommodate customers with longer names or information that want to use your design.
