With these easy to follow steps, you don't have to be a seasoned design pro to create your own stunning opt-in, freebie, or download.

A few things to keep in mind before creating your own document:

  • If you haven't already, create an account with Canva. There's a free version as well as a 'Canva for Work' version that has more bells and whistles — either account type will do.

  • Next, choose your paper size. We use 'letter' also known as A4, which is standard in the US; other countries often use A6.

  • Map out your content on paper before you begin — the more prepared you are, the easier it will be to create your document once you are in Canva. you're ready to begin designing...let's get started!
