With the Premium plan, you can choose the frames and stickers you want from the Easypromos library. With the White Label plan, you can upload your own frames and stickers, so that participants use your logo, branding or theme.

3. Display sticker and frame names? Decide whether users will see a title for each frame and sticker.

4. Is the frame mandatory? Require participants to use a frame for their photo.

5. Min./max. number of stickers: Define how many stickers participants can use. 

6. Upload an image for all users. Upload a single photo for everyone to use and customize. For example, you could upload a basic design template for users to fill in with frames and stickers.

 

Upload your own stickers and frames

With a White Label promotion, you can upload frames and stickers which you have designed yourself. Once you have created the promotion, just follow these steps:  

1. Enable PhotoFun and click on the Stickers tab.

2. On the right-hand side of the screen, you'll see Upload your own stickers, written in green text:

Top tip! We recommend uploading transparent .png images with a white border. This sticker format is optimized to integrate with images.

 

3. In the Frames tab, you can also add your own frames. Click on the green Upload your own frames text.
