Design Specifics

You’ll need access to Photoshop or an equivalent programme to open the .PSD template.

Once opened - each product is split into a folder, if you put your design in the “ARTWORK HERE” layer, it will create the mock up of that product for you. Please do not alter the layout of the flatlay.

Please note: To get your designs to show up on the main art-board, please press save on the product tabs that have a new design in place.

At Ohh Deer we don't often have time to answer all of your questions about using Photoshop for this competition. There are many online tutorials and forums for you to research and learn how to use the software through instead.

Things to note / some boring bits!

Your original image files must be at least 300dpi and please consider the item size that the images will be placed onto. (E.g, a deskpad is A4 in size, so it's best to have the original design A4).

Any entries uploaded after Midnight on Monday 26th March 2018 will not be considered.

*The winning artist will be responsible invoicing the prize amount, once the box has been sent out, allowing 30 days EOM.
