Letter Collages

 

All of the "Letter" templates come with upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols.  Design a collage/storyboard using letter shapes, outlines or photo pockets. The smaller sizes are great for cards, blogs, and scrapbook lettering.  The larger sizes are great for wall hangings or posters.

Letter Categories

 

Letter Shapes

  • Letter Shape templates are a single frame that allows a photo, color, pattern/texture, or shading to be added to the selected character.

Letter Outlines

  • Letter Outline templates are an outline of different characters included within the template. This allows for a two tone affect. The outline and inner part can be different textures/patters or colors. The outline can also be used to frame a photograph.

Letter Photo Pockets

  • Letter Photo Pockets templates are a collection of photo frames arranged to create different characters.  Depending on the template style, the letter pockets may or may not have a frame. A single image can be placed behind the frame, individual photos in each of the photo pockets or a mixture of words and photos within each of the pockets.

Sizes

The letter templates are available in the following sizes: 2×2, 4×4, 6×6, 8×8, 10×10, 12×12, 16×16 and 20×20.  The template resolution is 300 dpi.

Note:  Actual size of the letters are slightly smaller than the final product size.  This allows for space around the edges of the letters, numbers and symbols.  The 20×20 templates can be easily scaled down but upscaling may cause letter degradation.

 


 

Tips

Additional Design Layer

Each of the letter categories can have an additional border by adding a layer style 'stroke' to the outer edge of the letter.  The 'stroke' can be a solid color, pattern or gradient. Depending on the letter templates, the border gives the letters either a two or three layer effect.

Final Letter Product

The letters can be printed individually or as a combination.  The letters make a great collage especially for children or family names. There are a few pre-designed templates available. Simply add the letters to the template.
