Once all of the major details of your wedding planning have been taken care of (such as wedding cards, save the dates, and invitations), you can almost relax. But before you put those feet up, there's one last task to focus your attention on. The finer details of the big event – printables! These include the vast array of paper goods you might spot at a wedding. This includes signs with social media info for sharing photos, heart-warming quotes, and even wedding programs.
BeFunky’s Designer can help you create all of these (and so much more!), and all it takes is a few clicks of your mouse. But today, we’ll focus on how to design an Instagram sharing sign for your big day with a quick crash-course. It’s a great way to encourage your guests to upload their photos to Instagram with a common hash tag, so they can easily be found and enjoyed by all.
Embrace Your Theme
You’ll want to keep your wedding printables as cohesive as possible, so embrace the designs of your wedding cards, save the dates and invitations. To get started, enter the Designer and choose Event Graphics. Browse through the various templates that BeFunky offers and choose one that strikes your fancy. Next up, you’ll learn how to customize almost every detail to create a unique Instagram sharing sign that perfectly compliments your wedding theme.
If you already have a specific design in mind, you might want to start from scratch. Simply scroll down to Blank Templates, choose Event Graphics and select your desired size and orientation.
It’s All in the Font
If you're like me, every little detail of your wedding planning matters. Luckily, BeFunky lets you get real nitpicky. If you’ve chosen a pre-made design, you’ll want to remove any text or design elements, which aren’t required for your Instagram sharing sign. To do this, click on the text or element and press delete on your keyboard. You can also right-click and select Remove. Now, you have a clean canvas you can use to create custom printables, and get down to the details.
To change the text instead of deleting it, just double click on the text. Once highlighted, you can type in what you want to say.
Make it Yours
The Designer has hundreds of fonts for you to choose from. It also offers plenty of other ways to customize your design, including color, size, spacing, and paragraph style. It’s important that your guests can easily read your Instagram sharing sign at a glance, so pick a font and color that's clear and easy to see. Don’t forget to include your unique hashtag for the day either, as guests will need to know this so they can tag their photos!
Make your hashtag short, sweet and memorable to ensure that your guests use it when posting photographs.
A Little Icon Goes A Long Way
You’ll also be pleased to hear that the Design Elements include a section for social media, including two Instagram logos to further enhance your design! To access this, click on the Design Elements menu from the left-hand side of the screen. Scroll down to Social Media and click on your desired Instagram logo.
Want to change the color of the logo to suit your design aesthetic? Click on it and a Graphic Properties toolbar will appear. Select the Color Overlay square and choose a color. You can also adjust the Intensity using the slider below the color swatch.
