The colour you select will be shown and the HEX colour code will appear. Alternatively, if you know your which particular HEX colour you want, enter it in the box and press enter.
POSITION YOUR TEXT
An alternative method to position the text to that described above, is to click the position box in the editing panel.
In this drop-down you will see various icons to position the text with in the bounding box, as shown below.
CHANGE FONT TYPE AND SIZE
Apart from the text, choosing a font type would have to be the most exciting part of personalising your Phatmat. With 70 fonts to choose from, you’re encouraged explore and find a style that suits you.
The default font is Arial. You can change it by clicking the font drop down menu and scrolling through until you find what you like.
You can change the font size adjacent to font type by typing or toggling until you find a size you’re happy with, whilst ensuring it remains inside the bounding box.
Adding curve to your text is another excellent way to personalise your Phatmat.
You can achieve this by clicking the curved text box in the editing panel. Inside the drop-down, ensure you activate the switch for curved text, it will go green when switched.
Click it again to deactivate the switch and remove curved text effect.
Also, in the drop-down, you can adjust the curve radius and letter spacing, it defaults to 80 and 10 respectively.
ADDING A MONOGRAM

There are many online monogram makers you can use to create a monogram of your initials.
Monogram Maker, for example, is simple to use and lets you save as PNG. Then you can simply add it to your Phatmat as an image.
Here are some mock examples, taking only minutes to generate and add to a Personalised Phatmat.
