If you’re a small business owner, you’re more than aware that producing quality graphic elements for your website, social media or advertising is often a costly and stressful venture. But, it doesn’t have to be!
Canva is an absolute godsend to small business owners and entrepreneurs everywhere. If you haven’t been introduced, take a hot minute and scoot over to Canva.com and check it out. We’ll wait.
Amazing, right? We knew you’d love it.
What’s the Big Deal?
So, the deal is you get a ridiculous amount of free assets from photos and fonts to hand-drawn images and all sorts of preset templates to make your designing super easy. Plus, there are tons of premium assets that are only $1 a piece!
While Canva offers a great cache of photographic, text and design assets to get you started on any project, no matter how elaborate. But, another great resource for royalty-free photography is Pixabay. We personally use a solid combination of Canva, Pixabay and our own assets for all of our graphic pieces.
So, whether you’re designing a Facebook cover photo or an A4 poster you’re all set with everything you could possibly need! Now, the awesomeness that is Canva does not replace a professional graphic designer by any means. But, it is a great asset to your budget and means that you can stand on your own legs when you need to.
As if the above weren’t enough, Canva also has a great design repository full of really insightful and easy to follow tutorials on the basics of good design. Check out the Canva Design School and learn just about everything you need to know about proper branding and design.
So, start designing now and sign up for the Canva for Business account right now! We use it, and it’s pretty much amazing.
