Are you having some trouble formatting your company newsletter in Canva? Below find some helpful tips to speed you along the process and turn you into a newsletter creating guru.
Stay true to the design. The Canva template has already been created using ideal font sizes and paragraph treatments designed to please the eye.
Instead of changing font sizes and pulling out edges of the boxes, try to cut the copy or add extra words to fit the allotted space.
Use short sentences. Wordiness, especially in a limited space like this, won’t present visually and will overwhelm the reader.
Use sidebars to bullet out quick list of tips. Make these short, and a quick read.
Keep headline treatments simple. Use fonts and bold face to convey a style or match a mood.
Reserve underline to indicate a clickable link. Underline is generally not used as a headline treatment in a web or printed graphic presentation.
Keep all headline and subhead fonts, and point sizes consistent. Example. If you chose 18 points for headlines, 14 points for subheads, 12 points for your body text and 9 points for a product description then maintain that throughout the entire newsletter.
If your paragraph alignment doesn’t work in the allotted space, change the justification. View this through the lens of what looks good and fits the space.
Mind the print borders. When moving text boxes, pay attention to the pink border lines that show the edge of the print space.
In Canva these show up when you mouse over them. You don’t want to go beyond this edge with paragraphs or images. If you do, the words will be cut off once it’s time to make your PDF or print using an actual printer.
