2. How To Change Logo In The Transactional Emails & PDF Invoices?

Logo preparation

Transactional Emails

Similar to the header logo, you can use a logo that is saved as either a GIF, PNG, JPG, or SVG file type.

It’s worth noting that the size of your email logo must triple that of the header template in order to display that logo nicely on high-resolution devices.

We highly recommend you crop the image to discard all wasted space either at the top or bottom while still maintaining the original aspect ratio of the logo.

PDF Invoices

The most important notice is that the invoice logo must be rendered to fit a space that is 200 pixels wide by 50 pixels high.

Unlike the email logo, you can resize the invoice logo to fit the height without concern about any unused space to the right.

After that, you also need to select the Header and Footer Template.

Save the configuration to complete.

PDF Invoices

First, you have to expand the “SALES” section on the left menu and choose “Sales”.

Second, you need to expand the “Invoice and Packing Slip Design” section.

Third, now you can upload the logo for the invoice.

Remember to save the configuration to complete.

Troubleshooting Issues

Unable to create directory

This error message indicates that the Magento application does not have sufficient permissions to create directories in the specified path, specifically in the MAGENTO_DIR/pub/media directory. This issue often occurs during file uploads when Magento needs to create new directories to store uploaded files. To fix this problem, you need to grant appropriate permissions to the pub/media directory.

Logo is not shown on the frontend

  • Cache problem: You should check the cache first, when problems like this happen. Consider clearing Magento cache to upload logo successfully.
  • Theme problem: Uploader issue in Magento 2.3.0 might be due to the theme developer’s missing implementation of Magento functionality, resulting in a hardcoded solution. Contact the theme developer for a fix or consider implementing Magento’s uploader functionality manually. Test changes in a staging environment first.
