We are repeatedly asked by customers or members of the free Facebook group on the subject of Canva whether the paid pro version of Canva is worthwhile. For a long time we have “made do” with the free version. In the meantime we don’t want to miss the advantages of the Pro version anymore. The costs are really manageable. You pay a total of € 109.99 annually or € 11.99 / month if you cancel monthly. Nevertheless, we have created many, many designs with Canva in the free version so far.

10. More Stock Images , P ro-E ELEMENTS & Templates :
In the free Canva version, you already have a large selection of images, graphics and videos available. Nevertheless, it can be quite a mess if you still want to buy pro elements . Pictures and graphics cost € 1, audios € 3 and videos cost € 5. With the Pro version, all of these elements are included free of charge. If you then consider what you would pay for the usage rights here at agencies, Canva Pro is definitely worth it . So if this 10 Points are not relevant to you, then you should just stay with Canva in the free version.
