Bloggers who’ve written posts for a long time will tell you that there is a process in creating blog posts. Actually most have a set template for writing their posts. Time is money and no one wants to waste time on how to write a post. However part of that post would include images and most importantly the blog title image.
Full-time bloggers are also business owners and really need to spend time writing their posts to provide value to their audience. The fact is, many won’t take time to personalize their blog post image. Some will use a photo that resonates with the post, however there are some extraordinary bloggers that know the importance of visual marketing and use their branding with their images. Consistency with branding elements such as: fonts, colors, design elements, and logo or website URL.

Depending on the social media platform, they can certainly demand attention with their blog image. Using a long vertical image for their blog title image is a wonderful and essential way to get noticed on Pinterest as well as Google+. If bloggers find most of their target market on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn most often, then the horizontal image is best.
You can learn more about creating a blog title image using Canva here. BUT then that’s just more work, right? Okay so then I created this post, which actually gives you the steps to create a blog title template in Canva. Let’s face it. Using a template for a blog title image every time would be so much easier. Canva has a lot of great layouts that you can choose and rearrange as needed for your branding.
Well I’ve taken it a step further to make it easier for bloggers!
Tigerlily Template Collection Premier – Blog Title Image Templates for Canva
I’m super excited to display this first collection! This is what I did:
- Found inspiring photos with different themes
- Created a color palette based on the colors in the photos
- I created the template in Canva with the colors based from the photo inspiration. Paired some fonts to go with the template and design elements. (Which by the way, are the steps listed in the posts I mentioned earlier, therefore cutting out that whole process for you.)
So, what’s the big deal you say? The big deal is I have the template completed for you. All I have to do is share it from my Canva account to your Canva account. It goes to your email inbox for you to click on and BOOM you have a brand new template with: the colors you want, the fonts you want, and the design elements you want.
Okay… so maybe you don’t like all the design elements I put in there.
That’s okay! Just delete it.
I’m sharing an editable template design with you that you pick out.
Here’s an example of one of the template designs:
This design is appropriate for Pinterest or Google+.
To see the rest of the collection, check it out here.
Also if you find one you like then it’s all yours. No one else will be able to use it. I’ll place the Unavailable sign on it. Again what would be the point if everyone had the same blog title image?
If you don’t see one that you like, I will be adding to the collection on an on-going basis. Feel free to check back or contact me on the form with your request.
