Updated over a week ago

Welcome to our campaign editor, an easy way for you to build out the designs of your handwritten mailers. Please have your copy and design prepared and ready to upload to the campaign editor.

When you open the campaign editor, you have a series of actions you can take using the action bar on the right hand side. They are as follows:

  • Change handwriting style

  • Change paper size

  • Add custom fields to the copy

  • Type copy

  • Change handwriting positioning

  • Change handwriting color

  • Change handwriting size

When hovering over the template on screen, you will see four icons in the top right. Those icons perform the following actions:

Add header & footer - add a logo and typed footer

Signature - draw a handwritten signature

Add image - upload a full background image to the front side

Flip template - flip the template onto the back side

Frequently asked questions

Can I add a custom field to the footer?

Yes, you can add a custom field within the footer. To do that, you'll need to type it into the footer text field. The naming convention for a custom field is "{{{custom 1}}}".

What size does my background image need to be?

Your background image needs to match the size of the card you are uploading to. i.e., 5 x 7 inches needs to be 5 x 7 inches, and A5 needs to be 148.5 x 210 mm.

Why is it telling me that the handwriting doesn't fit on the front side?

The handwriting is generated uniquely for each send. As in, each character, and therefore each word and sentence, has variance, which results in some sends needing an extra line for the text you've typed.
