Summary of Canva Reviews
What Canva does well:
Users who gave Canva a positive review like how easy it is to create eye-catching designs with the drag-and-drop user interface and the wide variety of design elements they can use.
What Canva does not do well:
Users who gave Canva a negative review said that a lot of the images and elements that require a $1 payment are not that great. Some think that the premium elements should look better or more complex if they are required to pay a fee. They also didn’t like that they can only reuse purchased images and elements within 24 hours.
Most Helpful Positive User Review
A positive reviewer from the site G2 Crowd said that the layout of Canva is very user-friendly. He said he’s not that good at editing graphics and images, but the templates and tools Canva provides have allowed him to learn the basics properly. He mentioned that since using Canva, all of his marketing templates are now created with the software.
Most Helpful Negative User Review
A reviewer from G2 Crowd didn’t like that she has to pay for some icons and elements as simple as a line or rectangle. She said $1 isn’t much, but she only has access to the purchased elements for 24 hours. She also said it was a hassle that there are no free options in some categories of elements.

Canva has three pricing options — Free, Canva for Work, and Canva Enterprise. Canva for work costs $12.95 per month (per user), with a 23% discount if the user pays annually. The enterprise plan is custom-priced since it will depend on the company’s designing needs.

The Free version of Canva has most of the features a user will need to create different kinds of graphics. There are templates for Twitter posts, Facebook posts, Instagram posts, as well as for infographics, brochures, and book covers.
What sets the paid plans apart is the level of customization and organization. For one, users can upload their own fonts with the paid plans. Another more convenient feature in the paid plans is the ability to create multiple folders to categorize designs. Users can also resize their designs without having to recreate the original from scratch.
Please note that Canva for Work gets priority support, while Canva Enterprise plan holders get a dedicated account manager.
