The general background of the webshop pages consists of a color, a background image (as a one-time image or as a pattern), or both (background color and image). In the latter case it's only usefull when the background image / pattern has transparent parts. More on that later.

Because the header, the middle part (the content) and the footer have their own backgroundcolor settings, the general background setting only will be visible in the rest of the page, so mainly around the content.

If you have specific wishes regarding the background (patterns or background images), custom work is possible. Contact us via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Background with images or pattern

You can feature your shop with a background imgae of recurring pattern, but be careful that the pages don't get to busy and the information about the product is still at front.  We don't recommend the use of background pictures because the quickly consume to much attention and they can be heavy on the pageload (offcourse it depends on how you use it). A not to obvious pattern can work well to create your own look-and-feel to your shop.If you want support about determing the pattern, we can supply you with background images which will give the "personal touch" and with a light pageload.

Background with color and image

In case you want to use a color as well as a background image, then that is possible but only if the image is partly transparent. Through these transparent parts the color is visible. You can use GIF or, even better, a PNG as file type. JPG has no transparancy. 

Only PNG or GIF can contain transparency. Make sure your background image has Gif or PNG as file type in case you want to see the background color throught the transparent parts of the background image.
