In this article, we look at configuring your gift certificate theme options - blank, default, and custom themes.
Choosing between default, blank and custom themesBack to top
- Blank ThemesBack to top
Turn ON the Blank Theme, if you prefer not to use a theme. If selected, no image is displayed at the top of the gift certificate.
- Default ThemesBack to top
You can offer themed gift certificates to your Customers. By default, Checkfront comes with a set of three themes - Celebration, Seasonal, and Summer.
Customers can choose one of these three themes to apply to the Gift Certificate they are purchasing if the default themes setting is enabled.
|If you don't wish to use the default themes for any of your Gift Certificates, then you can replace them with a set of your own images under Gift Certificate Settings. Click here for more information.|
- Custom ThemesBack to top
You can also upload a set of custom themes specifically for the gift certificate in focus. Click on the + Add a Theme button. You are then prompted to upload an image from your computer. You can upload up to 5 custom themes.

Click the trash can icon to remove the theme.
Click Save and Finish to proceed to the final step of creating the gift certificate.
