FAQ

How can I share my new card online?

If you’d rather save on postage, you can also email your card, post it on social media, or even embed it on a website. Clicking on the “Share” button will pull up these options. Choose the best one and go brighten someone’s day with your card!

Can I collaborate with a friend or family when creating a card?

Absolutely! To allow other people to edit your design, simply click the ‘Share’ button and go to either the People tab to send an email or Link tab to copy a shareable link. Make sure you choose “Can edit” in the dropdown menu on both tabs to give edit access. Any friend or family member can then add their own messages or customizations to your card through their personal Canva account.
