ThemesBack to top
You are able to select a theme for your gift certificate. By default, Checkfront comes with three themes to choose from. If you prefer not to use a theme, you may turn on the blank theme switch.
If selected, there will be no image at the top of the gift certificate. If you'd like to display an image, you can select from one of the default themes, as seen below.
Again, these are probably suitable for most situations, but there may be times when you wish to use your own theme. In this case, click on the + Add a Theme button. You will then be prompted to upload an image from your computer to use as a banner image for the Gift Certificate. The image will be resized to 120px (height) by 480px (width), if the original is any larger or smaller.
Enter a name for the theme and then, if you wish to crop the image you uploaded, hover over it and click on the Edit Image button.
As with the gift certificate thumbnail, you can move the cropping area to suit your desired look and then click the Save button. And that's it! The custom gift certificate theme will now be added to your library under the heading Custom Themes.
Don't forget to save the item (bottom right)!
|If you don't wish to use the default themes at all, you can replace them with a set of your own images in the Gift Certificate Settings screen. Click here for more information on that.|
You will then see a confirmation that the new item has been created.
From there, you can Preview what your new gift certificate item will look like to your customers, Create a new Gift Certificate or Edit the item you just made. The edit button has a drop-down option that enables you to simply copy the item you just created. This is great if you want a new certificate with a slightly different price point. Back at the gift certificate home screen, you will now see your shiny new certificate in the left sidebar.
If you select this, you will again have the option to edit it as you see fit. Click on Edit Gift Certificate by the item's title, at the top, to do so.
