If you would like to use your own artwork, you can use our Upload Your Own Cards or Flyers. Cards can support still images, while Flyers can also support GIFs and soundless videos up to 5 seconds long.
If you are looking to upload two-sided artwork, we also have card templates for two-sided tall, horizontal, and square cards. Please note in these templates the front will flip to display the back for your guests and will leave the back facing after the animation.
Am I designing a Card, Flyer, or Legacy Card?
Flyers have a different layout from Cards — if the invitation is split into two distinct sections with editable text on the left and an animated image on the right, it is a Flyer.
You can check the top left corner of the page to tell if your Card is a Legacy Card- any Legacy cards will show the word LEGACY next to our pigeon logo.
CARD: Uploading Custom Images
JPEG files are recommended, using an sRGB IEC61966-2.1 color profile. The maximum file size we recommend is 20 MB. Additionally, to ensure proper resolution and rendering, image files should be sized to the following dimensions:
Vertical / Tall: 1463 pixels wide x 2048 pixels tall
Horizontal: 2048 pixels wide x 1463 pixels tall
Square: 2048 pixels wide x 2048 pixels tall
Ticket Holder (Horizontal) : 992 pixels tall x 2048 pixels wide
Ticket Holder (Vertical/Tall): 2048 pixels tall x 1154 pixels wide
You can add a JPEG image to your card by clicking "Upload Your Photo" or selecting a photo area in the design and then selecting your file from the menu on the left.
If you want to add personalized text over the image, click into the text box on the card. From the toolset that opens on the left, you will enter the text that you want to appear on your card. If you do not need text over your image, highlight and delete the sample text before sending, or click the trash icon to delete the text box.
FLYER: Uploading Custom Images and Videos
To upload your own image, GIF, or video, click on the sample image on your Flyer draft, and then click ‘Upload Photo, Video or GIF’ from the left menu:
While you cannot crop the image in the tool, you can adjust the placement by dragging the image within the display.
JPEG, PNG, GIF, .MPEG and .MP4 file types are all accepted within the Flyer tool. We suggest sizing your image at 1024x1024 pixels for the best display on your Flyer. Files must be 25MB or less, and video files should be a maximum duration of 5 seconds.
If you need help saving your file with the correct dimensions or file type, please contact us.
