This class accepts more than one value in tailwind CSS in which all the properties are covered in class form. It is the alternative to the CSS background-clip property. This property is used to define how to extend background (color or image) within an element.

Background Clip Classes:

  • bg-clip-border: This class is used to set the background color spread over the whole division.
  • bg-clip-padding: This class is used to set the background inside the border.
  • bg-clip-content: This class is used to set the background color to the content only.
  • bg-clip-text: This class is used to crop an element’s background to match the shape of the text. Useful for effects where you want a background image to be visible through the text.


<element class="bg-clip-{Clip type}">...</element>
