Why add your logo to products

There are multiple reasons why you would want your logo displayed on products. Most popular are:

Advertising

The most obvious reason for adding your logotype to your products is free advertising. People who use your branded items promote it to everyone who sees your product.

Brand protection

Especially if you are selling online, you should be protecting your brand by including your logo, which acts like a watermark. It's much more work for someone to remove your logo than to just insert their own logo into the product.

Better presentation

Professional looking logo can add an element of luxury to the product.

Which products can I put my logo on?

Our editor is designed for multiple use-cases. In short, you can put your logo on anything. You are only limited by your imagination.

Some common use-cases include:

  • Adding a logo to clothing items that can crease e.g. t-shirts, hoodies
  • Placing logos on packaging oriented in 3D space
  • Putting your logo on merchandise such as mugs and other smooth objects

Step by step guide

In just 4 steps, I will teach you how to insert your logo into any item. The resulted product, with projected logo can be used to present your item to your buyers!

1. Upload the photo of your product

Start by finding a suitable product image that you would like to put your logo on. In our example, we picked a simple white packaging box. Feel free to select any other item. Our versatile editor works on all items.

You can browse Unsplash to find a suitable product image.

2. Create and edit the logo placeholder

Depending on the product type, you will select a different type of placeholder and customize it. For example, for flat surfaces such as boxes, a linear warp will do the job. Thus, let's select the linear warp setting and drag the corners of the placeholder to match the 3D perspective of the box.

If you are mapping on complex 3D products, you might want to use 3D mesh warp placeholder.

3. Upload your logo

Once you have defined the placeholder you should upload the custom content to map. In our case, it's a brand logotype. Press the upload image placeholder button and select your logo file.

4. Download the result

Click the download button to finalize your logo projection and export the result in .png format that you can use to showcase your products online.
