Looking to revamp your digital image? Need a new business card, cover photo, or collage? Don’t want to shell out the money to buy or the time to learn a complicated software like Photoshop? Then, Canva is the answer to your prayers. It’s a free, online website that will help you take your graphic game into the 21st century and give you a chance to explore your own creativity without too much effort. Canva is what you make it, but while most people use it for simple Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest graphics, you can use Canva for so much more. Here are some examples.


Yup, resumes. Ditch Microsoft Word templates and upgrade your resume with these Canva templates. Play with color, sizing, and how much content you want to include. 


These can be as simple or as intricate as you need, but if you’re starting a new blog or Instagram account try making a logo on Canva before paying a professional. 

Book covers

Writing your own book to sell on Kindle? Putting together a short story collection for class? Just want to daydream? Canva has some great ideas for book covers and can help you get started on the right path. 


Need to award some hardworking individuals? Want to make a joke award for your favorite boyfriend, pet, or mom? Canva can help you make it look legit!

Gift tags

Don’t just write names on sticky notes anymore. Upgrade with Canva-made gift tags. They are so easily personizable and sure to be a hit. 

YouTube thumbnail images

More and more people are using YouTube and curating the right image is integral to getting viewers. You can use Canva to help make thumbnail images to highlight the best parts of your video and showcase your own style.
