genius hack sign ups tips ideas FAQs how to guide custom theme builder designs

Dreaming of designing your own sign up? You can! With SignUpGenius’ easy-to-use Custom Theme Builder tool, organizers everywhere can get their Picasso on. Get ready to dazzle your group members in three simple steps. 

Step 1: Get Started 

To find the Custom Theme Builder, log in to your premium account and click on “Tools” on the left side of your account dashboard. Under “Custom Themes,” click the "+ Add Theme” button. From there, you can start from a blank template or edit one of our existing stock themes. 

Step 2: Customize Your Design 

If you’re creating a new theme from scratch, select “Blank Theme” and click on the “Layout” tab. You’ll choose a layout based on the number of images (up to three) you want in your header. You can then pick images from a stock library or upload your own. 

Next, head to the “Design” tab to adjust the background, header, button and text colors so they’re just right in relation to the rest of your theme.

In Step 2 of the sign up creation process, look for the “Browse a Category” dropdown box and select “My Custom Themes” to choose one of your masterpieces. Select the theme and click the “Continue” button.

I can't tell you how excited I was when I stumbled upon your site! I serve on the PTO at my sons school which has approximately 300+ staff and part of my responsibility is to coordinate luncheons once a month. Your site will give me the ability to connect with parents on a whole new level and not receive numerous "meatball crock pot dishes". Your name says it all... this is truly genius!!! Thank you soooo much!!
