Getting Started

Maybe you attended a workshop, or met a Heritage Makers consultant. Perhaps you were online and you saw all the wonderful products and artwork that are available to you through Heritage Makers, and now you’re ready to start your own adventure in heritage making. Before diving in, here are a few helpful tips to get you going in the right direction.

When you first sign in to the Heritage Makers web site, you should see a picture of your consultant and her name in the lower left corner of the screen. You may also be prompted to enter your consultant’s name so that she can be made aware of your activity and can be available to help you. If you don’t remember her name, you’ll be able to search for it at the login page. If you don’t have a consultant, don’t worry. You’ll be able to continue anyway.
An important first step is to read the “Terms and Conditions” of your account with Heritage Makers. This document protects your rights and explains our responsibilities. While you may be tempted to click “I agree” and head straight for your first project, please read this information before you proceed.

After you accept the “Terms and Conditions” for your account, the first place you may want to look is the “My Studio Menu” page. Log into the Heritage Makers home page using your account number and password. Beneath the “My Studio Menu” is a link for the Studio tutorials page. This page provides a number of instructional videos for our clients. Here you can select from a variety of options including setting up your account, learning more about our powerful design tool Studio, starting a project with a template, uploading photos, and starting different types of projects.

After touring the tutorials, you’ll want to start on a new project. Select what you are interested in from the “Start New Project” tab, and choose either a blank project, or one of the predesigned templates from our collection.

If you have questions while you’re working, contact our excellent Service Solutions center at 1-866-694-3767, or through the online chat option located on the home page. We are excited to have you as a part of the Heritage Makers family, and we look forward to seeing all the many meaningful and creative projects you will create.
