Feature Overview: Custom Color Designs

Did you know that Greetabl offers the ability to create custom color designs? Choose a color that matches your branding, wedding colors, special event or occasion, or that’s just your fave to add a new level of personalization to your gift. It’s hex codes and color charts galore over here! Go crazy, you deserve it.

How to Use Custom Color Prints

To identify custom color prints in the builder, just look for this handy little pick your color symbol:


When you select your custom color print, you’ll proceed through the builder like normal – it will initially show up in your creation as black and white. Go ahead and pick your gift, then move on to the personalize page (where the magic happens!).

On the left side of the personalize page, you’ll see a few options to customize your design. The last option is “Print Color.” If you have one of the custom color designs in your build, you’ll be able to pick any color from our color picker. You can type in a color (like purple or blue), pick from a color wheel, or type in the hex value of your favorite color 🙂

Choosing a Color for Your Gift

Custom Color designs can be a fun way to inject (even more) personality into your Greetabl gifts. This is perfect if you’re using your Greetabl gifts as invitations or favors for a special event and want the gift to match the color theme you’ve already chosen, want to add a little extra holiday cheer, or if there is a specific color that is meaningful to your recipient. (We all have that one relative who lives in monochrome, right?).

Your Brand Colors:

One of the most popular ways to use custom color designs is with brand colors. Don’t know the hex code value for your brand color? One easy way to find it is to use Google’s color picker tool to enter the RGB or CMYK value – then Google will give you the hex code that matches your brand color.

Which color should you choose? Our designers recommend selecting whichever color is more recognizable as “you.” The goal is for your gift to be a physical extension of your brand, after all, so we always suggest picking one of your dominant brand colors. A quick rule of thumb: use the color you would use for a one-color logo, the background of your business card, or the main color on your website.

Want to take your branding to the next level? Check out Insider Pro and you can really flex your creative muscles by uploading your own custom print design that features your branding, and include your logo on a customized insert card.

Can I Leave the Design Black & White?

Yes! You can leave a custom design in black and white. The designs default to black, so simply select the design you want and then don’t make any changes to the hex code in the personalize page. It’s as easy as that! Here are a few of our favorite occasions to send a black and white design:

  • For a spooky day like Friday the 13th or Halloween
  • As an invitation or favor for an event with a black and white color scheme
  • To honor the April Ludgate in your life
  • When you want something understated for a more professional look
  • For a classic movie buff
  • When sending a note of sympathy
