Customising a component

When you click on a component type, you will see the Customise screen. 

The below is the Customise screen for a tuckbox. Each Customise screen includes a visual preview of the product with a ruler for scale, and a number of different options.

Different component types offer different options, but generally, you'll be able to adjust some or all of the following:


If you choose, you can give this component a custom name. This is useful if you have more than one of the same kind of component in your game, and want to be able to tell them apart at a glance.


Select how many of each component you need in your game.

Size / shape

Most components offer different size options; some, like tokens and dice, are also offered in multiple different shapes. 

Texture / coating

Many components allow you to select different textures, coatings, or finishes - these typically include gloss, matte, linen, and smooth options.

1-sided / 2-sided printing

Some printed items can have custom art printed on just one side, or both. If you prefer to leave a component plain, some, like the mint tin or the drawstring bag, can be left unprinted.


Some components, like tokens, dice, and drawstring bags, are also offered in multiple different colours.

Finishing up

When you have finished customising your component, click Add Component. 

You will now be returned to the Component List for your project, and you will see the new component you've added there. 

This screen gives you a lot of valuable information, including templates for your artwork, a calculated weight and cost for each component, plus a calculated total weight and total cost for the whole project. 

From here, the next step is to add artwork to your project.
