Shapes and Masks

With Zakeke you can create a gallery of shapes that your customers can use to decorate your products. Shapes can also function as masks, which means that when your customers upload an image they can use a shape to mask the image to give it a special shape (see example below).




How to use the tool

Create a gallery of shapes/masks

Go to Tools > Shapes and Masks > Add Shapes

You have two options:

  • upload your own files (supported formats: PNG and SVG)

  • Import the shapes from the Zakeke library

    Zakeke provides you with a library of hundreds of shapes and masks that you can use to create your own galleries. You can select a few of them or copy the entire library. Please note that when you import the entire library you won't be able to edit categories or remove individual shapes or change their names or characteristics (turn on/off mask function).

IMPORTANT: when a shape is in your gallery, you can decide if it should also be used as a mask by clicking on it and using the "star" symbol to switch on/off the mask function.

Once your gallery is created, you can Assign it to one or more products or to one or more printing methods and the gallery will be available to your customers as a new tool in the Customizer.


How it works for your customers

When your customers use the Customizer at your website they'll be able to:

  • pick a shape from your gallery to decorate the product
  • use the shapes to mask their pictures when they upload them on the product
