Stock or Custom Cover?

Wondering if a professionally-designed stock cover or the creative freedom of a custom cover is for you? Let us help you make the decision!

Custom Cover

With a custom cover, you have the full creative license to design it using any backgrounds, art or photos you wish to use - you’re only limited by your imagination!  Pictavo offers a wide selection of custom cover backgrounds to choose from, or you can upload your own design.  If you choose to create a custom cover outside of Pictavo, please review the Custom Cover Instruction Guide found in your kit for details regarding set up and where to find custom cover templates.

Stock Cover

There are a variety of professionally designed covers (called stock covers) that are available to any school who wishes to use them.  With a stock cover, you simply drag and drop the stock cover onto the cover designer and then double-click on the text box to add your school's name.  Keep in mind that no additional elements (such as clip art or other images) can be added to the cover, and the font style and color can not be altered.  The text box can be adjusted slightly, to ensure it is properly centered within the stock design. 

This two-minute video will explain some of the differences between stock and custom covers, as well as provide a quick overview on how to use the cover designer!
