Create captivating graphic designs with Stencil

Capturing the attention of your target audience requires distinctive, memorable branding. That typically requires the type of design experience that most business owners don’t have.

Fortunately, there are tools that can help you out, eliminating the need to either hire in-house graphic design talent or outsource the skill to a freelance professional.

Skip the software

Graphic designers generally use expensive software that, without any prior training, is quite complicated to use. 

And while there are simpler programs available for beginners, most still require a software download that business owners would rather avoid. Plus, those programs often require monthly subscriptions in order to maintain access.

With that in mind, a free online tool sounds pretty appealing. Wouldn’t it be great if you could just open your web browser, navigate to a site and create a graphic in just minutes? 

That’s exactly what you’ll get with Stencil by Visual. This Namecheap tool is designed to give businesses and creators a simple, fast, and free way to create stunning online graphics. In just a few simple steps, you can have fresh graphics ready to go for all your web marketing needs.

Graphics for every marketing need

With Stencil, there isn’t any guesswork when it comes to designing your graphics for your business. Whether you’re creating images for websites, social media posts, print ads, or another marketing channel, Stencil provides preset sizes to make sure you get exactly what you need.

For example, if you’re creating images for a Facebook ad, Stencil will make sure you have the right dimensions. Preset canvas sizes are also available for Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and more, which means no awkward cropping when you upload your designs to these platforms.

Millions of royalty-free photos

Adding high-quality, professional photos usually means paying for images online. Those costs can add up fast, especially when you’re consistently marketing your business both on and offline.

Fortunately, the cost of adding pro photos to your graphic designs isn’t an issue with Stencil. In addition to the design tool being free to use, it’s also preloaded with more than 500 million high-resolution stock photos, all of which are royalty-free.

Simply click on the image you want and add it to your canvas instantly — no need to manually upload. And depending on the number of photos you need, they’re either free or you can have access to millions of photos for a small monthly fee.

Customize your graphic designs

It can be hard to describe exactly what you’re envisioning to a graphic designer. You’re left with their interpretation, which might not match up with what you had in mind.

If you like having more creative control, you’ll appreciate that Stencil includes plenty of easy-to-use customization options. Add text to your design and try out different fonts and placements to get it just right. Businesses can also upload their logos and store them in the tool so they’re easy to add with a simple click.

Need a little design inspiration? 

If you don’t have a vision in mind already, simply use one of over 1,350 premium templates included with Stencil. Pick a design that appeals to you, then customize it with your choice of image, text and colors.

Share instantly — or schedule for later

Once your design is complete, it’s time to share it. Stencil is one step ahead there as well, offering an option to share directly to any social media platform right in the tool itself. Just preview your design, then select where you want to share it. Or download the image as a JPG or PNG to use elsewhere.

Stencil also works with Buffer, a tool that lets you schedule social media posts in advance. Just connect your social media accounts, then choose when you want your design to go live.

Stencil by Visual makes it possible for businesses to create captivating graphics while saving time and money. Try it out to see how easy it is to use this free design tool.
