I often get asked during Mailchimp training where attendees may get custom banners or images for their email campaigns. Some people choose to use a graphic designer or create the designs themselves in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator.
For those that don’t have the necessary graphic design skills or just want an image really quickly then fortunately there is a very good choice in Canva.
Canva was started in Australia just a few years back and makes it very easy and quick for anyone with basic computer skills to create awesome graphics. The process is as simple as:
- You login to Canva.
- Select the category of image you want to create (e.g. Email header).
- Select the layout you like.
- Edit the wording, colors and other elements.
- Download your image.
Many of the designs are free to download and some have a low price. Best of all, if you create a Email header then the size is already the banner image size needed for Mailchimp (600px by 200px).
