Canva Tips

  • While Canva has an app available, using the program on your desktop or laptop makes tweaks easier.
  • Canva is prone to glitching when used with Safari, try Chrome instead. 
  • Free accounts are limited to using free elements. You can choose to pay $1 per premium element or sign up for a pro account and access all the elements for a monthly fee.
