Overall Satisfaction with Canva

Beautiful marketing made simple! We have created social media posts, invitations, newsletters and other mass media creations! Canva comes with limitless built-in templates and media options. Canva helps make our external marketing cohesive and professional. We've solidified our brand and expanded our outreach with the help of this software. We love it!
  • Canva offers templates for nearly any type of design you are making including social media posts, posters, and even cards!
  • Love that you don't have to commit to one template. It is easy to open several and combine the aspects you like.
  • The free media and icons available rock! We love utilizing the different shapes and clipart available.
  • There isn't a search feature in the templates so you may have to scroll through dozens to find what you are looking for.
  • You can't filter media and templates by free and paid so you may have to sort through several paid options to find the free versions.
  • There also is not a function to sort the designs you created. It would be nice if you could store these designs in folders as you choose to help organize it all.
  • We have made our branding more cohesive, helping our nonprofit get its name out to more people.
  • Our event invitations, created through canva, have helped increase our ticket sales.
  • Our social media fundraising has boomed since we started using the visual designs canva offers.
  • Fotor
Fotor was great when we were smaller, but as we have grown we really needed a software that would allow us to save designs and collaborate together. There are also way more options as far as templates and design flexibility. This has allowed us to create more while still making use of a free software.
There is no experience required to utilize canva, that is one of the best parts. With the pre-populated templates, almost anyone can create a stunning design in minutes. We are a nonprofit but this software would be perfect for businesses and organizations alike. It also creates a place where several users can collaborate on design work.
