How to make a newsletter - Canva

Use a newsletter to stay in touch with your most important stakeholders

Newsletters are a great way to aggregate your news into one bulletin that your audience can much more easily consume. Make sure your newsletters actually get read by designing one that’s beautiful, eye-catching and easy to read.

Give Canva the heavy-lifting on this project by browsing through our professionally-designed templates and customizing it to suit your brand or taste. Use our amazingly simple design tools to customize various design elements such as images, fonts and colors. Then, download your newsletter as a print ready PDF or send it out to your mailing list straight from Canva.

Position yourself as an expert and build confidence in your business

More than sending updates, newsletters can help you establish yourself as a go-to expert in your industry. Write about industry trends or share interesting content alongside your company or business’ latest and greatest news so you can provide a regular and consistent flow of information between you and your stakeholders. Add a compelling call to action to encourage them to write back. If you’re sending your newsletter out via email, go ahead and add a working link to your website or email address then download your design as a PDF file. You can even add a personalized email signature!

Balance text and images through the Canva media library

Images are an important visual aid that can complement news articles, provide context and give readers a break from a wall of text. Easily insert images by dragging and dropping them from the image library and into your design workspace. Search millions of high-quality images, illustrations and icons that span across a wide range of categories and topics.

Each image is carefully reviewed and curated so they’re sure to look great whether printed or on a screen. There’s plenty of free elements in the library and you’ll only have to pay a small cost for each one-time use of premium ones.

Create design consistency by using your brand kit or choosing the right colors and fonts

Make sure your newsletter design follows your branding guidelines and remains consistent all throughout and from volume to volume. Canva Pro users are able to create brand kits, useful for saving a specific brand color palette, logos and fonts which you can apply across all your designs. Otherwise, you can always choose the color you prefer by using Canva’s color wheel tool found on the toolbar and choosing from over a hundred fonts.

Collaborate on your design projects with your team

Since your designs are saved on the cloud, you can easily collaborate with a team to get their input or include their edits. Just send them a link to edit your design by clicking the share button and ticking the checkbox. Once you’re registered you can access your designs anytime and from any computer, iPad, iPhone or Android device.
