Canva makes it super easy to create high quality, eye catching visual pieces to help you stand out from the crowd.  It provides preset templates, a vast image library, a range of commonly used print and online document sizes and a plethora of professionally created ready-to-go graphics; all the pieces you need to put together successful marketing content on and off line.

From the moment you sign it, Canva is as straightforward as they come.  It walks you through every step of the process and even has you put together a sample before you get started on building professional pieces to make sure you’re comfortable with the process.

The first step is to pick your design.  You can choose from Document, Presentation, Blog graphic, Facebook cover, social media, card, and more!  Then you build your look.  You can choose from a preset template or build from a blank sheet.  The present templates make it super easy to add text, stock images, and other information to tailor the piece to what you want to relay.  Just drag and drop from their list of options.

Once you’re happy with your piece, you can publish it directly from the Canva site through a unique URL or you can download the piece as an image or PDF.  It’s so simple, you’ll be creating, posting, and printing beautiful pieces more than ever before.

Here’s an introduction tutorial, and there are lots more available on YouTube, in case you need it. You probably won’t!
