Upload your mascot

Make your school’s mascot or logo pop off the page with a variety of printing options.

Tip: you can create a watermark effect by playing with the filter  and transparency options on your logo. Try taking down the saturation -100, increasing the contrast +50 and setting the transparency to 30%.

Create article pages that demand to be read

It’s no secret that high school students are a little shy of pages that are full of words… But you have a lot to say about your school, students, and staff! Here are some tips on how to get those articles read:

1- Break up longer articles with graphic elements

– Change the direction by inserting diagonal or curved shapes — breaking up the mainly horizontal or vertical feel of the page creates a less intimidating atmosphere.

– Upload photos and spruce them up with clipart and unique typography — with close to 150 font options and a seemingly endless supply of clipart and graphic shapes, you can pull the readers in with aesthetically pleasing visuals.

2- Create diversity on the page

– Explore the 150 fonts free for you to use and try different looks for quotes, annotations, and titles. Experimenting with size, placement, and linear direction can result in some creative designs that are unique to you.

– Colour is an emotionally-driven element that can set the mood of your page to keep a consistent feel and draw your readers in. Create an inviting look with lively colours, or maintain a more serious tone with pastels and softer tones.
