I created a video to walk you through the process of customizing this free Canva invitation template. I designed this template to be versatile enough that you can use it for a wide range of events from birthdays to reunions and more.

IS CANVA PRO WORTH IT?
You can use either the free version of Canva or Canva Pro to edit this invitation template. The free version of Canva is an amazing tool for creating graphics to use online or to print. It does have its limitations, however. If you are looking to have access to a wider range of tools, assets, and abilities, Canva Pro might be worth the monthly subscription.
A Canva Pro subscription comes with the following:
- Access to over 100 million pieces of premium content including graphics, stock photos, videos, and more
- Intuitive video creation software
- Impressive photo editing capabilities (like Background Remover that works with the click of a button)
- Over half a million professionally designed templates to guide your design
- Turn static photos into GIFs and videos with instant animation
- Social media scheduling for Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Twitter
- The ability to resize your design for different social media platforms with the Magic Resize tool
- Quick and easy branded graphics based on your personalized Brand Kit
