IF YOU AREN'T USING THIS DESIGN TOOL, YOU ARE THROWING MONEY AWAY!

Paying for expensive design software is so a half-decade ago. Gone are the days of laboring over Adobe’s Photoshop or hiring a graphic designer for every flyer or creative need. Thank the heavens!

Meet Canva! This free graphic-design tool web site and app was founded in 2012. Inside the site, you will find templates galore and beautiful layouts for Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. 

If you need it, they likely have it, and the templates probably looks better than anything you or I could EVER create on our own. 

You simply click on the template. Drag and drop. Upload your own image if you’d like. Edit the text. Add your logo. And done. Presto. 

This site is saving small businesses thousands of dollars, and it has saved me many headaches. 

Here is a quick rundown of the FREE version:

Two folders to organize designs

Up to 10 team members for free

1GB storage for photos and assets

Access to over 8,000 templates

Upload your own images

Access millions of photos for $1 each

If you plan to convert your image into multiple sizes for banner ads or simply want to use your own brand fonts, I would suggest upgrading to Canva for Work at $12.95 per month.
