How to Get Creative with Embellishments, Designs & Layouts

Whether you’re creating the perfect pretty keepsake or a heartfelt gift for a loved one, you want it to look the best of the best. Did you know that Truprint has a range of beautiful embellishments, designs and layouts to help do exactly that?

Using our online design tools, you can get creative whilst designing something unique and personal. Let your creativity run wild and bring your stories to life using embellishments, designs and layouts.

Here’s how…


We have over 3,000 embellishments that you can choose from. Embellishments can be added to almost all of our products. Here’s how to use them:

  1. When creating your project, open embellishments from the left toolbar
  2. From here you can navigate to any category of interest. For example, if you’re creating a book full of your summer memories, why not check out our “Seasonal” category?
  3. Once you’ve found an embellishment that catches your eye, simply drag and drop it onto the product.
  4. It’s as simple as that! If you change your mind, embellishments can be deleted by clicking on it, then “delete”.


We have dozens of different designs to choose from for the majority of our personalised photo gifts. We have a design for every occasion, all at no extra cost!

Here’s how to add a design:

  1. When in the project builder, click “Designs” from the left toolbar
  2. Once you’ve found a design that you like, click on it to apply it
  3. If you’re creating one of our Photo Books or Calendars, the builder will ask if you want to apply it to the entire product or just the current page.


By changing a layout, you can collage together more than one of your favourite photos. Here’s how to add layouts:

  1. During the builder stage, click “Layouts” from the left toolbar
  2. From here you can browse through the layouts we have available
  3. Once you have chosen a layout, click on it to apply it
  4. You can then drag and drop your selected images into the grey photo boxes
