Create the design of your printed cards
The design is for printed cards only. If you want to display images on the virtual cards you need to create your Bingo Page URL. This tutorial explains how to insert images into the empty spaces around the bingo cards. You can use this space as you wish to insert advertising and photos. The first design of a project is free. You can create up to 5 designs per project and each design can have different settings. The cards of a project remain the same, only the design is changed.
The models are adapted for U.S. Letter 8.5″ x 11″ (215.9 mm x 279.4 mm) paper size. Depending on the card model you have selected during the creation of your bingo project, the design spaces vary from one model to another.

Creation of the design
To import an image, click the design space and select the file. It is recommended that you import images of the same size or larger than the dimension, in pixel, shown in the import areas.
Move the rectangle frame to the desired location using click, hold and drag. The portion of the image that will be kept is visible in the frame, the rest will be rejected. Adjust the size of your image with the corners of the frame. When you are done adjusting your image, click “Confirm” to import the image in the design space.
Repeat the process with each of the design spaces. If you are not satisfied, you can still modify the design spaces as needed by replacing the image with another one or removing the current image.
When you are done inserting your images in the card design spaces, click “Save the design“. Note that you will not be able to modify the design once it’s saved.
A window will appear if a design space doesn’t have an image or if you didn’t save an image after you have imported it. Confirm by clicking “Cancel or “Ok” to finish your design.
