Before getting started, let's open the website and create a free account: www.canva.com

Step 1: Set your canvas size

You can select one of the recommended designs, or if you are going to create a specific print you should use the custom dimensions. I’m going to create a 60x60cm wall dot, so my custom dimensions will be 2400x2400px.

Step 2: Get designing

You can use any of the templates available to start your design. For my design I simply want an image with some text overlaid. First I select a background from the free ones available, then add some text.
