Design Your Own Iconic Family Poster
Personalized Iconic Family Poster & Notecard Tutorial
I'm a sucker for anything personalized, and I love the iconic look of these little cartoon-like silhouette people. So I created this design for "Customize a Family" posters and notecards that can be personalized to look just like your family! ...and bonus! if you order the notecards, you can also buy matching postage stamps!
It's so easy and YOU can do it! :) 'Here's how it's done:
Click on the orange "Customize It" button below the product image. This will allow you to really make it yours! You can change the sizes of the people, make more men or women, delete any extra people (or animals), and change the fonts and background color of your final product.
Create your family. Just click on each person and use your mouse to change the size of each person to match the ages and sizes of your own family members. You can also use your mouse to move the people around to create a different order in the lineup or even make additional people.
To add a person to your "family":
- Click on the picture of the gender you want to add.
- Click on the "edit" link on the right-hand side of the menu.
- Choose "copy" to copy that image.
- Go back to the "edit" link, and choose "paste" this time. Then use your mouse to position the person appropriately and size it accordingly.
To delete a person (or animal!):
- Click on the image you want to delete. This will highlight it in the menu on the right.
- Click on the "X" next to that image name.
To change the background color of your poster:
Click on the "edit" link, and at the bottom of the drop-down list, choose "background".
- Pick your color from the palette OR type in the hex# for any color you'd like.
To add YOUR family name to your personalized poster:
- Click on the text for the last name to highlight it.
- Then click on "change text" to enter your name!
- If you wish to change the font, you can then click on the "f" image that looks like this:
The natural size of these posters are 14" x 11", but you can change it to nearly any size you wish! Just choose your poster size by clicking on "Choose Your Size And Frame" and typing in the dimensions you would like. You can even add framing options!
And there you have it! An adorable personalized Customize a Family poster or notecard to represent your sweet little family! I ordered a set of notecards to use as thank you notes and love the personal touch it adds. Here's mine:
