Overall Satisfaction with Canva

Our marketing department uses Canva to create content for our newsletters, blog, and events. Canva allows our marketing team to quickly produce original content and get marketing materials out to our fundraisers in a timely manner. Without Canva, our organization would need to hire more designers or outsource some of our marketing efforts to a third party.
  • Canva has many different saved templates for a whole host of uses including newsletters, presentations, banners, and brochures.
  • Canva's drag and drop design tool helps novices create and develop content for our organization.
  • Canva has a useful feature that allows any created content to be ready for print.
  • Canva is easy to pick up and start using, but it takes a while to understand all of its features.
  • Canva is meant to be used for novice designers, not professional graphic designers. For professional graphic designers, its features and capabilities may seem too basic.
  • The charts and graph functions are a bit limited as users cannot input own data and there are not many options for customization.
  • My organization is able to create thoughtful content at a a much faster rate. This has increased the number of emails, blogs, and newsletters we publish.
  • In the past, my organization would often turn to freelance designers for much of our content creation. With Canva, we do not have to this as often.
  • Canva has freed up time for our most senior graphic designers because Canva allows them to delegate certain tasks to more junior colleagues.
Adobe Photoshop has many more features and capabilities than Canva, but it costs a lot more and requires a lot of training to master. Anyone can use Canva and create very professional looking designs without much training. It takes no time to learn and it's easy to start creating right away. Plus it costs just a fraction of what Adobe Photoshop does.
Canva is a wonderful software for making quick, professional-looking designs. The software allows even beginner designers to start creating with little to no training. The drag and drop design features are intuitive and easy to learn. However, for projects that require more complex and customized designs, Canva is not the best fit.
