The New Postcards Created With Canva | You'll Love This Program

 I thought I’d share two postcards that were just prepared on my new program, Canva. I decided Publisher wasn’t making the cut!!!  It was time to raise the bar, so I purchased Canva.

 

I need to practice using it and becoming familiar with the options available.  There’s a Free Version but I decided to buy the full program.

 

I had my granddaughter, Brittany show me how to use it. She’s a marketing major with two years under her belt and is very familiar with this marketing program.  I think the options are wonderful.

Here’s the postcard we, Brittany and I, created for tammy and Andy. 

 

We also did a postcard for Joshua for a mailing in another town.

Great job, Barbara! Now you can teach our group how to use Canva in a few weeks! 

Sometimes a change in software is actually refreshing after you learn how to use it. Have fun with it and keep the shares coming so we can see your amazing creativity!

Barbara, I love Canva. We use it for all of our postcards and infographics. I just told someone to check out your blogs on postcard marketing. I always tell people you inspired me to do it and it has been profitable.

Barbara, I loved the new cards you have created. I find Canva quite pleasant to work with. And not too difficult to learn, learning is more on the intuitive side.

I've heard only good things about Canva. For some reason it intimated me - but I have a daughter who could probably help.  I love your cards - it's fun to be different!

Nice postcards!  I love the options available on Canva.  And it's nice to be in full control of your marketing rather than waiting on someone else to complete, send for review, wait for publishing, etc.  Great post!

I'm a big fan of Canva and use it often for print media and social media marketing.  Agree with you, the graphics are great. D

I like Canva too, but our brokerage just gave us, at no charge to the agents, a program called LucidPress. It is seriously Canva on a bunch of steroids! A bit steeper learning curve, but well worth it. Anything we design can also be used in digital media. Here is an example  www.denboerhomes.info/brochure

I love Canva and yes it does take some practice.  If you don't have a talented grandaughter, there are many YouTube videos available as well.  :)
