How to Use Printify's AI Generator to Create Custom Merchandise
To start, follow these steps to get the gist of the tool and create images as closely as you imagine them.
Step 1: Pick a Product
Step 2: Select the AI Image Generator
Select AI Image Generator in New Design. All images created with the tool and its variations will remain stored in your account. You can access them anytime in My Library.
Step 3: Generate AI Designs Using a Prompt
Describe the image you want to create by using a text prompt. Don’t worry; we’ll explain in detail how prompts work later. For now, describe a simple object and add an attribute and an action.
If we type the prompt “a bear playing the piano wearing a suit,” we specify the main object (the bear), an attribute (it is wearing a suit), and an action (it is playing the piano).
Step 4: Choose the Image Style
Add setting information and refine your prompt by selecting a predetermined style. Currently, the generator offers 13 styles, including “Anime,” “Analog Film,” “Cinematic,” and “Photographic.”
The result is completely different as we add a setting to our prompt (a library) and select a style (Analog Film).
Step 5: Save Your Product
Select the generation you liked the most. The Mockup generator will automatically upscale the image and increase its resolution for printing when you apply it to a product.
Adjust the image, choose the variation and size, preview, and save the product.
Step 6: Remove the Image Background (Optional)
Depending on your design and product, you may want to remove the image background.
Select the image after creating it with our AI tool or edit an existing product. Click on the design and hit the Remove background button:
Click on Quick remove to use the built-in AI tool. Click Erase to use the brush if you have artistic skills or need to do some corrections. You can adjust the brush size and restore the image to its previous state:
Click on Apply, and it is done.
How to Structure Prompts for AI Designs
Prompts are command phrases that AI programs interpret and use to generate images. You can write simple descriptive sentences or add modifiers such as rendering mode, artistic style, background, or colors, for example.
The Focus Object
When typing a prompt, start by describing a focus object and its attributes like colors, sizes, and appearance.
For instance, it can be a person, an animal, or even a landscape. Characters may be wearing clothing, using an object, or doing some activity. Adding adjectives to the focus object will change the image drastically – for instance, “cute” or “creepy.”
Here is a prompt with a single focus object: a panda bear eating mushrooms in a French restaurant. We used the style Line Art to set the tone:
Settings and Backgrounds
You can considerably manipulate the resulting image by detailing the setting where the action occurs – a restaurant, a stadium, the countryside, or a city.
If you are vague, there will be more space for the AI to generate random results – which is interesting for new ideas and exploring.
In the following example, the setting was vague (“over Paris”), and the AI drew heavily upon the preset style (“Fantasy Art”).
In the following example, we took complete control of the image by specifying both the focus object and the setting. Here, the object completely blends with the scene: a group of people walking a trail in a forest with a mountain range in the background (Anime style).
Style and Rendering
As you see, Style presets can create stunning results. You can manipulate the style even further.
This can be done by selecting “none” in the Style box and adding styling information to the prompt. You can also keep a style and type additional instructions in the prompt to tweak it even more.
- The AI tool can emulate the style of famous artists and painters like Picasso and Monet, artistic schools like Cubism, or even cinema directors.
Here, no default style was selected. However, the text prompt included styling instruction in the style of Vincent van Gogh:
- Style your image with different rendering options, and create 3D images:
Here are additional styles to add to a prompt:
- Renaissance painting
- Pixel art
- Realistic lighting
- 3D blender render
- Color sets – “pastel colors,” “black-and-white,” ”monochrome.”
- “a sketch of”
- <In the style of> + artist, artistic/architectural/cinema school or movement, decade
