Ever since CANVA came on the design scene, it's continued to evolve offering small businesses the opportunity to create all kinds of digital and printed design without the need to pay graphic designers top dollar.
Currently, there is a great free option however for just $17.99 AUD a month, the pro option offers so much value including:
Create your own Brand Kit and upload your own fonts and logos
One-click design Magic Resize
Text effects like curve
Background remover (game changing!)
A whopping 420,000+ free templates with new designs daily
75+ million premium stock photos, videos, audio, and graphics free-to-use
Save designs as templates for your team to use
100GB of cloud storage
Schedule social media content to 7 platforms
Personally, the greatest value I get from using Canva pro is the brand kit. This saves me SO much time when I'm designing as I don't need to add in my brand or clients brand colours manually each time and it also allows me to upload my favourite fonts too.
As a social media manager, pro offers an abundance of incredible stock photography and templates that I can easily customise to make them unique.
I also love the fact that I can design on the go using the phone app.
Lastly, it's also heaps cheaper than using Adobe products such as Illustrator which I find much harder to use anyway.
I've also used Canva's print service a few times to print postcards, business cards and posters. The quality is perfect and shipping is fast. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
Canva currently offers a free month when you sign up to pro which is awesome. If you'd like to score 55% off your first official month then check out this link to Shopback (I LOVE using Shopback and have saved SO MUCH MONEY using it!) You won't regret using Shopback - I've saved over $400 in one year just by using it to buy and book things online. What's not to love?!
