How To Use The Product Customizer

The Haddonstone product customizer lets you add your own unique text to one of our carefully selected products. Products have been chosen based on their suitability for engraving.

 

Please note: Because of technical limitations of the engraving process, very small text is not possible. The product customizer will limit the text size possible depending on the product you have chosen.
Recommendations: For the best user experience we recommend you use Google Chrome or Firefox browsers on a desk top computer or large screen laptop when using the product customizer.
When you open the customizer you will see some default sample text, this will usually be ” Add your text here”. We recommended that you edit this text as this is the simplest way for you to get started. If you feel more confident then you can delete the sample text and add new text using the “Add Text” button. You can further customise your text using the options in the toolbar. Remember the reset button will take you back to the beginning if you wish to start designing again.

Add text

Click on the large blue “ADD TEXT” button then simply add a line of text to the text box and click the “ADD TEXT” button. Please note if you want different lines of text to appear in different font sizes, bold or italic or curved, you will need to add them as separate lines of text.

Tip: To add multiple lines of text first reposition the first line of text you added, then repeat the “ADD TEXT” operation. This prevents your new line of text appearing over the top of the first line.

Note: Text can only be added to the designated areas outlined by a blue dotted line.
