Preparing Artwork

Smile™ Personalised Printing

Example of Smile imagesWhat is Smile Technology?

Smile Technology allows you to prepare a list of names (of customers, prospects, VIPs and so on) and incorporate them into one or more photographic images.

The resulting images can be printed on postcards, calendars, wall planners and a host of other products.

How do I order Smile products?

We've made it as simple as possible to design and order Smile products:

  • First, choose your product and download the template for it if necessary – simple products like A4 to A5 folded cards have no templates; simply design the inside to the correct size and let us do the rest.
  • Next, select the image(s) from the library below which you'd like to incorporate, and indicate in your design where the image(s) should be placed – we'll drop them into place.
  • Lastly, draw up your list of names and/or addresses using our Excel template or by providing your own list.

That's all there is to it! We will carry out all of the necessary checks to make sure your finished printed work is perfect.
