Snappa is an online graphic design application. I’m going to provide you relevant information in this Snappa review and if its right for you.
How Does Snappa Work?
Snappa allows users to create graphic designs without the need of downloading and installing software.
It includes 3,000,000+ high-resolution stock photos and 100,000+ graphics so users don’t need to buy or upload their own images.
If you need text on your graphics, then you’ll be happy to know Snappa also comes with 200+ fonts. Some of the font types included are scripts, stencils, and of course serifs.
The platform comes with premade templates geared towards social media.

- YouTube Thumbnail 1280 x 720 px
In addition, there are also several other templates for bloggers and displays ads.
Creating graphic designs with Snappa is pretty easy and self-explanatory. You don’t really need to watch a tutorial to use it. However, there are video tutorials. To sum it up, you’re doing dragging and dropping which makes Snappa user-friendly.
Users can create graphics with background images, write some text on it, and even put an emoji. It’s a no-frills graphic design application and it serves its purpose.
One thing you can’t do with the text is warp them to make the graphic more appealing. Warping text is important in graphic design but not needed by everybody.
Snappa is also useful in creating infographics. Since it comes with many graphics, you’ll be able to create infographics on a wide area of subjects or use a pre-made infographic. They’re great for making visually friendly how-to’s, guides, or instructions.
I think Snappa is great because I was able to create the two images in this review solely using Snappa’s free account without no forced watermarks. The free starter plan includes 3 downloads per month.
Bloggers, social influencers, and small businesses can save a lot of money without the need of hiring a graphic designer.
If you need a lot of text-based graphics and you’re not familiar with Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop, then you should try out Snappa for free.
Snappa’s starter plan is free. Its pro plan costs $15/month or $120/year.
Snappa is compatible with the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
