If you own a small business, creating gift certificates that your customers can share with family and friends is a great way to increase interest in your business and boost sales. And the good news is that making your own gift certificates doesn't have to be expensive or difficult—all you need is a computer, a great template, and access to a printer.
We can't help you with the first or the third, but for the second we've got you covered. Let me introduce you to Placeit, an affordable online design generator that makes professional branding, promotion and marketing tools accessible to everyone.
In this article, I'll showcase a number of terrific printable gift certificate templates, introduce you to the Placeit online gift certificate maker, and show you how to create a gift certificate online quickly and easily.
How to Make a Gift Certificate Using an Online Gift Certificate Maker
- Navigate to Placeit, enter 'Gift Certificate' in the search field, and hit return.
- Browse the gift certificate ideas shown until you find one that suits your taste, and click on it to open it up in the gift certificate maker.
- To start customising your blank gift template, move to the controls on the right of the template and, starting from the top, choose a background colour for your gift certificate.
- Next, choose a frame colour and style. You also have the option here to choose no frame at all.
- Now you need to choose a graphic for your gift certificate. If you have a business logo or a special graphic for your business, you can use the Upload Image button to upload it from your computer.
- If you don't have a logo or graphic, don't worry. Select an image from those provided or if no relevant images are offered, enter a search term associated with your business in the search bar to find more appropriate images.
- Now move to the left side of the customisable gift certificate template.
- Here you will enter all the text for your gift certificate. This can include any information you want, but at the very least should include your business name, the monetary value of the gift certificate, the terms under which it can be used, and an expiration date.
- You can remove fields you do not need by toggling the eye to the left of each field off.
- And you can add additional fields with the Add Another Text button at the bottom of the custom gift certificate template.
- Once you’ve entered your text, you can keep the default fonts or select different fonts from the dropdown menu.
- You can also change the colour of the font using the colour picker.
- One of the great things about this gift certificate maker is that you can move all the elements in the template and scale them up or down to create the exact look you want.
- If you don't like what you've done, then you can simply hit the Reset Layout button in the top right of the gift certificate maker, and everything will be reset to its original layout.
- Once you’re satisfied with your design, hit the Download button at the top of the screen.
- This will take you to the download page, where you have two options for purchasing your custom gift certificate.
- You can either pay a small fee for your single design or sign up for a monthly or yearly subscription that offers you unlimited downloads of all of Placeit's designs, mockups, logos, videos, and gaming templates.
