Step 4: Place your design file over the Bella+Canvas PNG

Play around with the color options in Canva and once you’re happy with a color combination, it’s time to order a few blanks for testing from Bella+Canvas. We never suggest putting a product in your shop if you haven’t tested your decoration technique with the specific blank first. So if you haven’t tested your decoration technique with the BC3001 shirt then you should consider ordering and testing a few to make sure everything looks great in the end.
