How to create and upload a gift voucher design

Gift voucher design is a template used to print the actual gift voucher that will be sent to recipients. You can upload gift voucher artwork on a per-item basis. That means you can sell different items with different designs at the same time.

ℹ️ Changing artwork

You can change the artwork you upload to VaocherApp as often as you like, and it will not affect the already sold gift voucher sales as we store the artwork with the gift voucher at the time of sale.

How to create gift voucher artwork

Navigate to https://vaocher.app/settings/pdf/ where you can see all the artworks available to your account, then click on the "Create new PDF" button.

When creating new design, you will be able to choose from Simple or Advanced editor mode.

How to apply gift voucher design to an item for sale

For every item you sell, you can attach a gift voucher artwork/design to it. This allows you to customise the gift vouchers to fit your business's products or services (e.g. seasonal items, special/holiday...).

To do this:

  • navigate to https://vaocher.app/items
  • click on the item (to edit it) you want to upload specific design for
  • scroll to the PDF design section and click "Change PDF template"

Remember to save changes after all. Then, when your customers select this item in your checkout, they will see the artwork change in real-time and it will be used in the gift voucher they ultimately purchase.

Our gift voucher design requirements

We require a specific format for your gift voucher artwork:

  • Format: PNG, JPG or JPEG
  • Minimum size (wide x high): 210 x 297 mm (or 1240 x 1754 px)

You can, and should, provide a higher resolution (e.g. 2480 x 3508 pixels) so that the gift voucher presents well on high resolution screens (e.g. retina display).

We highly recommend using Canva to design your gift vouchers. They have a huge template library for gift vouchers, from free to paid designs.
