FREE DIY Business Card
I am attending a blogging event in a few days, and because of that, I needed a business card. I didn’t have time to have someone layout it out for me, so I looked for other options. Good thing, I discovered Canva!
Canva is a free online tool which lets you design anything from graphics to posters. It’s very easy to navigate and there are a lot of options to choose form. Are you ready to be a designer?
Sign-up for an account
First thing that you have to do is to sign-up. Don’t worry, it’s FREE. There are advance features that you can pay for, but the free ones are also great.
Choose a layout
After signing-up, you can start creating! There are a lot of things that you can design. All you have to do is choose:
DIY and design
After choosing, you will be brought to their design studio. You can opt to choose a ready-made layout, or if you’re feeling confident, start it from scratch!
If you’re using a ready-made template, you can just fill it in with your details.
You can also add other objects. Just choose, drag and drop!
Add an element:
Add a text:
Don’t like the background? Change it to what you want:
You can also add your own images. Choose to upload the file or get it from Facebook!
You can choose to share your project via Facebook, Twitter, or Email.
You can also download a local copy – via Image or PDF format.
Your own portfolio
The beauty of the sign-up is that it saves all of your projects. These are mine:
As for my business card, here’s what I came up with:
I wanted it to be a very simple with a touch of femininity. What do you think?
I had mine printed out in a local store near our place. I’ll pick it up tonight and I’ll update you once I have it.
I’m so happy that I got to find an online tool where I can create a free business card. And not only that, I can also do other graphics!
As a new user, I didn’t struggle in creating my own design. Everything is intuitive. I didn’t encounter other challenges so far, so it is such a great discovery!
