We've been talking a lot about explorers lately (as inspired by one of baby F's board books--you can read about Christopher Columbus or Leif Erikson) so I've been experimenting making different family tree prints for them. As someone who makes a LOT of family tree prints... let me tell you it's addicting. Whenever I design one I like to try to match the style and feel of the pedigree chart to the person at its center, so that it tells a story as well as x-generations of ancestral names: for King Henry VIII a royal purple, for Marilyn Monroe oh-so-many shades of pink, for Carrie Fisher a chart inspired by BB8 and for Leif Erikson a veritable Viking ship!
There are infinite ways to customize and personalize your family tree print--one of these is changing the text color. The two charts you can see above are both created using our Clean Blackboard circle family tree template, where the text is white by default. It looks fantastic that way, and there's no need to change it. But if you want to... it opens up an infinite world of possibilities. See how different the chart looks with just two different color choices: red and green-gold! For a step-by-step "how to" on changing your text color in our family tree maker app, visit this tutorial post, but don't worry it's easy!
