Canva for business
Quickly and easily create smart graphic designs.
An inadequate online presence and inconsistent brand image can keep you out of your customer’s line of sight. It may be an essential part of doing business, but most small businesses lack the budget for an in-house graphic designer.
Fortunately, tools like Canva help you consistently design stunning graphics without the design experience.
What is Canva?
Canva is a graphic tool platform that takes the technical side out of design and lets you create impressive visuals with user-friendly drag-and-drop features and professional-looking layouts.
You can create your own designs with custom dimensions for everything from social media posts and presentations to letters and invitations.
