Working on this design has been exciting, because it’s opened our eyes to so many possibilities. From the beginning, it was obvious that people might like to put a picture of their own favorite horse into the picture – and change the name in the title. And what a fabulous gift that would make! Whether a poster or a greetings card, it would be something to treasure forever. So how were we going to do it?
In principle it was pretty easy. Our Gift-Shop is hosted by Zazzle, and Zazzle allows us to post a design as a customizable template. We’d already used the idea for Hit Me Again, allowing customers to replace the ultrasound scan in our design with one of their own … and in fact customers can add words to any of our card designs. But for Farewell to Wisdom, we wanted to add a few special tweaks – including the possibility that customers might like to commission their own artwork from Alli – and that’s what I describe in the YouTube tutorial below.
