Makr App for Easy Branding

After I posted about the shower I’m planning this summer, a few people inquired about the invitations.  So I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce this super useful ipad app.

If you are like me, you probably have an eye for design but don’t always have the time to sit in front of a computer and painstakingly design something original.  Makr is great.  It is a free ipad app that is loaded with pre-designed templates for all kinds of events and businesses.  You can edit them easily to adjust the color, fonts, design elements, images and logos and then you have the option to either have Makr print them for you, or to purchase a printable .pdf file that you can print on your home printer (for $1.99 per file).  Since this shower really crept up on us and I need to get the invites out shortly, this app really came in handy for me.

Makr App for Small BusinessesEach design set comes with a variety of coordinating elements.  Take the business set pictured above.  It includes business cards, labels, tags, reward cards, stickers, address labels and more.  All of them are perfectly coordinated and ready to customize.  It’s a great option for a new company that might not be able to invest in something custom quite yet.

Makr App for DIY Weddings

Their wedding and party sets are gorgeous.  I used one for the shower invitations and have also created a matching registry info card and favor sticker for the shower.  It took me about 30 minutes to get everything customized to my specifications and information.  All I have left to do is download the .pdf’s and print them.

They are constantly adding new design sets.  It’s a great tool to keep in your arsenal in case you are in a situation like mine.  Have you tried Makr?
