Printmarks for Pros
Introducing a new way to dress up your orders: Printmarks! As the name implies, they’re watermarks for your prints. Use them to add your signature, a team name, the event date, or even your logo to any photo that your clients buy from you.
Set them up just like watermarks: Design the image of your choice (preferably on a transparent background) and upload it to a gallery. Use the gallery button Tools > Make Into Printmark option and adjust it to taste.
Once that’s done, open up your Gallery Settings and choose “Yes” for Printmarks, under the Printing option. Any physical items ordered from this gallery will get that design applied. Your customers will see a detailed preview in the shopping cart, so they know what to expect.
Two important things of note:
1. Printmarks don’t apply to digital downloads, but they will appear on all print and merchandise goods. (Thatsa lotta stuff)
2. We suggest that your make your printmark image at least 1500 pixels on the longest side. This is to be sure it prints smoothly on items of all sizes.
Right now, your Printmarks will be printed unobtrusively on your print in the region that you specify. We’ll be working on making this cool new feature even better in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more options.

- We’ve polished up our blogs page, adding our newest addition for foodies and hungries alike. Feast your eyes on this and see what’s cooking at SmugMug Central.
- Our Simple uploader is now much more forgiving if you’re uploading photos on a less-than-perfect connection. Instead of hanging, it will pick up where it left off… even if you’re logging in from your laptop on Mt. Everest. (We know some photos can’t wait.)
