Postcards by Canva
The humble postcard remains a popular means of keeping in touch but has since gone beyond the typical “wish you were here” message. Instead, it’s gotten a digital upgrade and kept its relevance as a beautiful and thoughtful way to communicate back home or as a keepsake from a wonderful travel experience. Businesses are in on it too, using postcards as inexpensive direct marketing tools to ramp up awareness for their product, service or event. If a postcard design is appealing and attractive enough, it can be shared and passed on, turning it into free advertising.
With Canva, it’s easy enough to create a DIY postcard. There are over a hundred templates to choose from, whether you just want to create a fun card to send back home or a professionally-designed one to attract would-be customers. Canva designers have come up with a collection of templates with themes ranging from travel to holiday greetings and RSVP responses to business direct mailers.
Skip the generic landmark photo and search instead for the perfect image through Canva’s amazing library of over a million professional photographs, illustrations and vectors. Or, upload your own image and make it even more personal. Enhance your images using Canva’s advanced filters. Pick out a background to use - be it a solid color, textured pattern or an image from the library. Work on the design with friends by sharing an editable link then download your postcard for printing or just share it via social media or email directly from Canva.
