    Enjoyed this conversation as I have been using Canva for a year or more now and love it. As Guy said, we don't all have the money to pay graphic designers rates and sometimes it's not having the time to wait for work to be done. Learning to use Canva was quite easy and It's definitely one of the best tools I have for my business. I pay for the Canva for Work but the free option is perfectly sufficient. I upload all my own images so it rarely costs me anything for a Canva image. Democratisation at it's best. Tracey Hurst - The Online Course Club
