Tagging and Naming Graphics

Naming Graphics For Uploading

A good title describes an item well, makes sense, and is not too verbose.

  1. Titles should attempt to describe an item well, and relatively fully, but without being using more words than needed.
  2. You may use the kit name in a graphic's title if it is helpful.
  3. For example, "Birds in Snow Solid Paper - Yellow" (where "Birds in Snow" is the name of the kit).
  4. Titles should not include anything that is not immediately relevant to the average end user: for example, sku numbers should not be included in titles.

Capitalization

All words in a product title should be capitalized. Example: Solid Blue Paper

How long is too long?

There is a character limit on the title field: if you keep typing, but the characters are no longer added to the title, it means that you have reached the limit: try and find a way to make your title shorter.

How to name multiple similar items

The site will prevent a given designer from giving two items exactly the same name.

Let's say you are uploading a number of navy blue papers; how should you title the papers to distinguish them from each other?

Step 1: You can use your kit name in the title, if desired:

  • Navy Blue Paper - Birds in Snow

Step 2: If possible, use other identifying characteristics of the item

  • Navy Blue Paper - Grunge
  • Navy Blue Paper - Distressed
  • Navy Blue Paper With Pink Stripe

Or, combining identifying characteristics with kit name:

  • Birds in Snow Solid Paper - Navy Blue
  • Birds in Snow Grunge Paper - Navy Blue
  • Birds in Snow Distressed Paper - Navy Blue

Step 3: If your title still isn't unique to you (the site is giving you a warning), add a number to the end - Birds in Snow Solid Paper - Blue 02

Naming Kits & Bundles

Kits should generally include "kit" in the title.
Kits should generally include the type of kit in the title.

Examples:

  • Budapest Quick Pages Kit
  • Superlatives Notebook Papers Kit
  • Stripe Paper Templates 81-90 Kit
  • Snowflake Brushes Kit
  • Scribble Brushes 15-19 Kit

Bundles should generally include "bundle" in the title.

Examples:

  • Budapest Bundle
  • Superlatives Bundle
  • Merry & Bright Bundle

Naming Files in a Zipped Kit Folder

Before zipping your kit folder, it is helpful to rename the files so that people know where they came from. A good graphic title looks like this: ps-designer_name-graphic_title

You can easily rename and add prefixes to files using a Bulk Rename Utility (PC).

Tagging Graphics

Generally add any tags that you think would be useful. The most important tags to add are "paper" or "element". After that add the most relevant tags, such as themes (christmas, birthday, spring, etc) or style (polka dots, metal, shiny).

For layout templates, please enter the number of photos as a tag, e.g. "1 photo" or "3 photos".

For synonyms (banner=bunting, photo=picture), please only tag one, as our search engine is normally smart enough to figure synonyms out. But do let us know any synonyms you think of so we can add them to our list.

Finally, do not tag individual an individual graphic with the name of the kit it belongs to.
