Uploading a template usually takes 3 simple steps:

  1. Upload and test a template into Sample Stationary catalog;
  2. Create a public catalog, if not created yet;
  3. Copy the template to a public catalog when it’s ready for use.

Sample stationary catalog

Web-to-print Sample stationary catalogThis is the initial catalog you start with after registering an account as a designer. It contains a collection of sample web-to-print templates that you can test and download to help you understand how the system works.

The “Sample stationary” catalog is also your private playground and it’s not visible to anyone but you.

Upload a template

When you’re working on a template, you can upload it in the Sample Stationary catalog to test it. This way the template will not be visible to the public until you’re sure it is ready, at which point, you should copy it into any other catalog.
