You can create designs yourself in a third-party graphics application and add them to the stock designs list, making them available to affiliates for use in their stores. Stock designs are not automatically added to affiliate stores. However, affiliates can choose which stock designs to add to their store to decorate products for sale and choose if each design is available for use by customers to decorate products they wish to purchase.
