Q: I’ve uploaded my files in high resolution. How do I create a product?
A: Click on the edit thumbnail of your file, this opens up a product creation box. Here you can edit your products.
Q: Once the product creation box has opened up, how do I edit my artwork on the product mockups?
A: Choose the product of your choice from the menu on your left, click edit icon on top right of the product creation page and edit away!
Q: While editing, why am I unable to stretch my artwork on the product canvas?
A: The file has a lower resolution than the one recommended, and hence your artwork is not stretching across the canvas as you’d like.
Q: Once I have edited my product, what is the best approach to give Titles to my products?
A: For SEO purposes use the format as Product Title | Artist: Artist Name

A: Click on the button below the edit button on the top right side of the canvas.
Q: How do I double check my files before product creation?
A: Carefully see your file to check for anything you wouldn't want to show up in the actual product. If you can see it, it will appear in all products with the design. Once you create your product, after moderation it is available for sale, so make sure it is ready. Color correction, cleaning and cropping should all be complete prior to uploading files on your dashboard.
Q: What happens to my previously uploaded/existing products/uploads?
A: In case you already have live products in your collection, they will be available for sale in your collection as earlier. Although, you won't be able to see those products in the Products tab (in menu).
Q: Sometimes when I edit an artwork on a product, there are white spaces remaining on the product. Why does this happen?
A: This happens because the image has been expanded to its maximum without interfering with the resolution; this means that you cannot expand it anymore. The image will be printed such on the product.
Q: Why does a product disappear on my product creation box after I have clicked Create Product?
A: This happens because you can place artwork on a product only once. Once created, the product disappears.
Q: Who determines the price of my artwork?
A: Price for each category is predetermined by the PosterGully team itself.
Q: Can I change the price of products?
A: No, you cannot change the price of products.
Q: What happens to a product once I have clicked Create Product?

Q: Where can I see the products I have created?
A: Once your product has been created, exit the product creation box by clicking outside it and click on the *Product* tab in the blue menu column on your dashboard. This tab will take you to all the product requests created by you.
Q: I would like to edit a product/title created by me, how do I do this?
A: It is not possible to edit a product/title once created. You will need to send us an email requesting us to take down the product. Then, please upload the image and re-create the product.
