If you’re anything like me, you know the frustrating feeling of finishing a beautiful ad only to realize that it has too much text and doesn’t comply with Facebook’s 20% text rule.
I can’t count how many times I have gone back and forth between exporting my ad from Photoshop or Canva, checking it in Facebook 20% text grid tool and finding that I need to adjust the placement of my text again. Then I repeat the process of adjusting the text size and placement again and again until I can get the text to fit. You know the drill.
That’s why I asked my good friend (and talent designer) Yair Goldin to create a simple grid template for me so I can easily check my ad creatives before I export them. The template works as an extra image layer in my designs so I can see how my text lines up with Facebook’s grid while I’m working.
I’ve been using the templates for a few weeks and it has already saved me tons of time and headaches. Now I want to give the template to you as a free gift.
- Two sizes for most standard size ads (1200×628 or 1200×1200)
- Works with any design platform (PhotoShop, GIMP, Canva, etc)
- PSD files included
To use the template simply import the PNG file as a layer in your design project and make sure that it is sized to the same proportions as your ad image (works best with 1200×628). Make sure that the text in your ad only extends into a maximum of 5 boxes in the grid (If it goes into more than 5 boxes then your ad will not be approved).
If you have any questions about how to use the template, please leave a comment below.
