Office Depot announced a collaboration with Canva, the fast-growing design platform. Canva’s high-impact, professional and visually-appealing graphic design solutions paired with the high-quality printing services offered on officedepot.com are now available to help small business customers keep business going during this pivotal time. This follows on Canva’s similar cooperation with FedEx Office.
“Whether small businesses are preparing to open their doors or never shut down, we’re here to help them accomplish more as they restore operations, restock their office and reconnect with their customers,” said John Gannfors, executive vice president and chief merchandising and supply chain officer for Office Depot. “The addition of Canva’s easy-to-use graphic design functionality enables our small business customers to easily build their brand with eye-catching print marketing materials that can help them keep business going.”
The collaboration integrates Canva’s drag-and-drop design interface found on officedepot.com’s print services section. Small business owners can now create professional marketing materials like flyers and posters to let their community know that they are open for business. Customers can also access royalty-free photography along with tools such as frames, shapes, fonts and thousands of color options where small businesses can get approximate matches to their brand standards.
“In recent months we’ve entered a new normal across the globe and businesses have recognized the need for more collaborative, more affordable and more user-friendly business support solutions,” said Aaron Day, global partnerships lead for Canva. “Together with Office Depot, Canva is simplifying the design to print process by bringing the power of technology from online into the mainstream. Now customers can enjoy more choice, more flexibility and all the support they need to reopen their business.”
