We are beyond excited that we got accepted in to the Canva Pro Affiliate Program!
What does this mean? Well, for us, it means that we can get even more excited about sharing the tools we use, Canva being at the top!
Canva is the tool we use to create our social media graphics and print pieces (it’s not just for digital pieces). It has baziollions of free stock photos to incorporate and the pro version (what we use) has the ability to store your brand colours and fonts etc which makes creating designs a breeze. When we discovered Canva we were almost mad that we had been using photoshop for years! There are still use cases for when you might need to use the adobe suite, but we have yet to find something that we can’t create in Canva at the same quality or better! And the very best part… we can share the templates we’ve created with our clients that have their own Canva account so they can make their own edits or creations with it moving forward.
If you do any graphic design at all, you need Canva – trust us on that one! It saves more time than you can imagine and it allows anyone (yes you… even the design challenged peeps) to create elegant pieces without any formal training.
If you want to sign up for a trial account – CLICK HERE (note: the resize tool is a feature of the pro account, but even in the free account you can duplicate your template to new dimensions, it’s just not as quick and easy).
Here’s the first design with me demo so you can see it for yourself. Show us your amazing Canva graphics in the comments on this blog or on social media 🙂
