Step 4: Get started designing

PostPilot gives you options when starting your design. Whether you choose a simple background color or upload you own custom design background, you'll get going in no time.

Please note: 

The Dotted Red Line = the approximate cut line.
The Dotted Blue Line = do not put any text or info outside of the blue line.

Step 5: Make the design unique

Add some simple resizable and customizable shapes to make the design yours.

Step 6: Make it personal for your customers

Get personal with data directly from your customers.

Please note: For dynamic coupon codes, we recommend keeping them under 10 characters to ensure proper usage and fit.
