Using Canva for DIY Pet Branding and Design For Pet Businesses

Using Canva for DIY Pet Branding and Design For Pet Businesses

Back in the day, if you wanted to be able to DIY when it came to graphic design for your pet business, it was very hard. That is unless you were able to use a professional graphics program.  Or for that matter, had formal training in both design and program. Now, with the innovation of Canva, this has made the DIY capability become a reality.

So, what is Canva you ask? It’s a design and drag-and-drop platform. Giving users the ability to create graphics, presentations, posters and other visual content. Even better? It’s FREE. Oh-yeah Paw-yeah! Since this application is available online – this means that you don’t have to download a thing. Create a free account, log in and get-in.

In fact, here are 4 awesome Canva DIY design ideas to put in place and market your pet business.

1

PET THEMED SOCIAL MEDIA GRAPHICS 

It’s never been easier to connect, engage and advertise your pet business to a worldwide audience. With Canva’s library of pre-made templates, you’ll find an array of selections to chose from. And no matter the social media platform you’ll be able to create socials for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and more.

Do you need more in-depth help with getting tailored social media graphics for your pet brand? Come and sniff out our Pet Passport Program. This monthly graphics program offers a ready-made solution for busy petpreneurs. Put the power of a design studio behind your business and let us help you fly with success.

Sniff Pet Biz Design Tip:
To keep these graphics in tune with your brand, make sure to use the same colors as assigned. Not sure what they are or don’t have a specific color palette in mind? Sniff out these pet color palettes for further inspiration.

 BUSINESS CARD DESIGN 

Business cards are still one of the most memorable and tangible items a pet business can use.

Once in Canva and select the “business card” design type and then select from their library of layouts. Add in your content of choice and pictures and then viola! You now have a fab…er ‘furbulous’ card on hand.

Sniff Pet Biz Design Tip:
Use the front side for your contact info. Use the backside as a client discount or referral coupon. Viola! You now have two-in-one uses.

 POSTER DESIGN 

With several pre-made Canva layouts to select from, you’ll be able to create a poster all your own. This can serve as a great tool for you to advertise your pet-related services. Once done you’ll have the option of saving it as a print-ready file to download and print. Or send in and have Canva print them for you. Super easy. Superbly furry fun.

Sniff Pet Biz Design Tip:
KISS your poster – (Keep It Simple Silly). Keep the poster’s composition simple. These tend to be the most beautiful and memorable. Only use content that is essential. And create an elegant and sophisticated piece to help you stand out from the pack.

 BUSINESS LEAD MAGNET 

Lead magnets are one of the best ways to grow your email list or for garnering more traffic to your web site or pet blog. These are freebies that one can create to attract more leads. Wanna know the best thing about freebies? It’s not only another great way to keep your audience’s attention but also to keep em’ coming back for more.

Sniff Pet Biz Design Tip:
Create a client checklist. This is great if you do a lot of how-to-posts or you’re teaching a specific topic. This can be great for dog-trainers wanting to share training tips. Or for pet sitters/pet walkers wanting to create a mini client onboarding list. Or for pet boutiques wanting to teach new food training options.

In fact, Sniff Design has been favoring Canva so much, that we are now including Canva templates in our store. Here in our resource store, you’ll find a growing collection of pet design templates.
