Stencil is a fantastic cloud-based graphics creation tool which is best for social media but also brilliant for WordPress. I have installed it on most of my sites now and I love it, I don’t know why I didn’t check it out before! Stencil is available at getstencil.com.
What is Stencil?
Stencil is an alternative to Canva – it does some of the same things but some features are exclusive to Stencil. My favourite feature and the reason for this review is the newish extensions but especially the WordPress plugin.
Stencil, like Canva, allows you to quickly create social media posts, thumbnails for YouTube, social media headers, blog post featured images, Facebook and Google ads and much more.
How much does Stencil cost?
Stencil is available in 3 simple plans paid monthly or the cheaper overall annual payment:
- Pro: $9 (annual) / $15 per month
- Unlimited: $12 (annual) / $20 Per month
The free plan is very limited, to really see what Stencil can do you need the Pro or Unlimited plan as they offer so many more features including photos, icons, templates, fonts, logos and uploads. There is a 7 day free trial which you can use to see if Stencil is a real alternative to the expensive Canva for you.
One thing that I really dislike with Canva is the additional costs when adding photos, icons etc, too many were addons and the costs really add up. Everything you see with Stencil is included for the price you pay – simple.
This is only my initial review, the full review will be ready shortly but it’s safe to say I am very impressed with Stencil.
