Visual communications and graphics platform Canva announced strategic partnerships with Linktree, Staples Canada, and Sprout Social. More than 55 million people in 190+ countries use Canva to design with ease and collaborate at scale
“Canva empowers our community to start inspired, design with ease and achieve their goals, but we can’t do it alone. Launching our new partnerships with Linktree, Staples Canada and Sprout Social is yet another key milestone in our mission to empower the world to design and publish anywhere,” said Laura Haines, GM of Global Partnerships and Products, Canva. “We’re thrilled to welcome our new partners to the Canva ecosystem, as we work together to provide a growing suite of visual communications tools to businesses and knowledge workers everywhere.”
Canva and Linktree announced a Canva Button integration, which brings Canva’s design tools into Linktree’s interface so users can easily customize their Linktree backgrounds and profile images, using pre-built templates or entirely from scratch. Linktree’s category-defining solution connects audiences across the entire online ecosystem with just one click.
“The collaboration with Canva represents a leap in our ability to offer our user base – from the world’s most known and loved brands and individuals to up-and-coming creators and businesses – a way to create stunning visuals that complement their online identity,” said Alex Zaccaria, co-founder and CEO of Linktree. “With the Canva integration, users of any design background, or even those with no design background at all, can take their Linktree to the next level, creating their personalized visuals in a simple, effective way.”
Canva and Staples Canada initially announced a strategic partnership earlier this year to help customers create custom-print solutions. The next step in the partnership launches Staples Canada as “collection parnter,” which means any Canva Print design from more than 15 product categories can be printed and collected at Staples Canada.
“We are always looking for ways to improve the customer experience, both in-store and online,” said David Boone, CEO of Staples Canada. “Our partnership with Canva has provided our customers with an easy to use and seamless design and print experience. We look forward to our continued collaboration.”
Canva also announced a partnership and Canva Button integration with Sprout Social, the provider of cloud-based social media management software. Sprout Social users can leverage Canva’s tools to seamlessly design social graphics directly within Sprout.
This year, Canva also announced partnerships with AWeber, Brandfolder, BuzzSprout, CG Sign Lab, Dyspatch, Exaprint, Herff Jones, Hootsuite, Libsyn, Oktopost, Print Buddy, Sam’s Club, Sendible, Silber Druck, Thinglink, UpShow, Wizer, and Zoho.
