Big Cartel About Us Page Template

About Us

Page Template

Suitable for Any Aarcade Theme


The About Us page is displayed in Aarcade Big Cartel theme previews as an example of a custom page.

Additionally, this page uses the image classes built into Aarcade’s themes to float an image to the left of the page.

Requires an Aarcade theme!

See installation instructions below.


Make sure you have an Aarcade theme installed before proceeding with the following instructions. This extra will only work with an Aarcade theme.

Create a new custom page, as detailed in the support article How do I add a page to my Big Cartel shop?, and name it “About Us” or a relevant name of your choice.


Switch to HTML edit mode before proceeding – refer How do I switch to HTML edit mode?

Copy all of the code in the code box below and paste it into your new custom page content area.

Edit the content as required. As a minimum you will need to:

  • Replace the filler text with your own text. Note:
    • Heading tags are used to create different sized titles.
    • Double returns between text lines automatically creates paragraphs, so there is no need to manually create p tags.
  • Replace the image src URL with a URL of your own image. Note:
    • Refer to How do I insert an image into my Big Cartel shop page? for more information on uploading an image and obtaining a public URL.
    • The alignleft class has been used to float the image left, refer to the section “Styling Your Image” of the above-linked article for more information.

Click the Save link when you are done editing your page content.

<img src="" class="alignleft" />
