How To Design Your New MyFly Tag
Assuming you are on the LuggagePros.com website, the first thing to do is to sign into your account. This allows you to save your design and work on it later. Click on "My Account" on the top right of your screen. You will be asked to enter your login information or create an account. If you don't want to create an account, that's okay! If you will be completing your design and ordering it right away, signing in isn't required.
Now on to designing! Click here to get started.
If you are ordering just one tag, click on the "Customize" button. If you want to order multiples of the same tag, BEFORE you click "Customize", increase the quantity of tags by clicking the "+" button, or enter your desired number of tags. Then, click "Customize." The quantity discount will then be automatically applied to your order. Note: the price on the design page will show the non-discounted price until you start designing your tag.
Next, you will see a pop-up asking you to log into your account. If you are following these steps, you've already done this, so you can just click OK.
Now you will see an image of the tag to design. The design tools are all on the right hand side of the screen.
Adding Your Image
Many customers just want to add their favorite picture to the tag without any further designing. If this is you, click on the "Upload image, PDF, EPS or AI" button at the upper right of the design tools. Then click "Upload your image, PDF, EPS or AI".
Next, click where your image is located, probably "From your device." A pop-up of files from your device will be shown. Find your desired image and click Open. The file will upload and will automatically show in the design area. On the bottom right of your uploaded image, there is a circle with four arrows. Click on this circle and drag it to make your image bigger or smaller. To cover the enter design area, the image will need to be enlarged.
At the upper left of the bag, there is another circle with four arrows. Click here and drag to move your image into your desired position.
On the bottom left of your screen, there are icons that indicate the front and back of the MyFly tag. Click on "Back" to design the other side.
In the right hand tool menu, there is a button called Text. Click on this button to add text to your design. When you first add text, it will appear blue in the center of your design. Use the Circles on the corners of the Text to move and re-size your text.
On the right tool menu, you can change the font, color, curvature, and more. There is also a button for Text Art if you want to be even more creative.
If you would like to add your address or other text horizontally to one side of your tag, click on the text tool, and then add your desired text.
On the upper right corner, use the rotating arrow button to drag and rotate your text 90 degrees.
On the lower right corner of the design area, drag the circle with arrows to re-size the text to your desired size.
On the upper left corner of the design area, use the circle with 4 arrows to move the text to your desired position. You can also change the font, alignment, color and more to make your tag just the way you like it!
Placing Your Order
When you are finished designing, click on the blue "Add To Cart" button on the bottom right of your screen to proceed to the check-out. A pop-up will appear, asking if you are finished designing. Click OK to proceed, or Cancel to continue designing. If you are signed in to your Luggage Pros account, you can click Save Design to finish at a later time.
Clipart and images: If you click on this button, then click on Backgrounds, you can then add any of these multiple background images to your design. Scroll down to see dozens of options.
If you want to add a background to your design, click on one of the backgrounds and it will appear on the design area. At the bottom right hand corner of the design area, there is a circle with 4 arrows. Click and drag this circle to make the background cover your enter design area.
You can then add your own image(s) to your design as described above.
There is also a background with a template for adding an address. Add this the same way you would a different background.
If you want to move images or backgrounds forward or backward, there is a layer tool that you can use. Click on one of your images or background on your design area. On the bottom of the right tool bars, there is a layer button. Click this to bring your image forward or send your image backward.
