You can take full advantage of the combined capabilities of the Gardenware labeling program and most graphics-
Select similar types of items for a single print run and create professionally customized signs and labels without having to order thousands at a time.
The options described and shown here can be accomplished with a simple monochrome laser printer. Adding color accents to logo files and changing font colors with a color laser printer are simple ways to add visual impact.
You can use any popular photo editing software to create your own graphics.
Save your files as either .jpg (highly recommended) or .bmp, place them in the proper folders on your hard drive, and they will appear in the selection boxes in the Gardenware program.
The Gardenware staff can help you get your logo or graphics optimized for use within the program, but if you’re comfortable creating or editing graphics files, feel free to use the guidelines here to help set up your own designs.
The proportions listed here are ideal. They don’t have to be matched exactly, but the closer you get to them, the more efficient your use of the available space will be.

Without getting too deeply into details, the first thing you want to be sure of is that you’re dealing with a photo-

Gardenware does not sell or even recommend graphics editing software, but if you’re in the process of choosing a package, please be sure that you’ll have full control over compression levels in .jpg files. It’s also a good idea to keep your options open as far as the types of files that a program can open and edit.
Gardenware’s images (both photo and logo files) must either be a .jpg or .bmp file, so choosing software that can make the conversion from a variety of other file types is really handy!
