Hello Wayne: What a great graphic you have created in Canva. I have created a few things in Canva, too, and it is very easy to do, so I will definitely make one similar to yours and share with my downline. Thanks again. [img]https://i.imgur.com/7wF9ofq.gif[/img]

Wayne, I want to join with others to thank you for that graphic welcome which will be fabulous to copy. However,I realize you are in your 13th year. However, wouldn't a newer affiliate need permission to send the similar welcome letter? Just asking for clarity and not as a dispute against the new graphic Welcome Letter. Thanks for sharing and I wish you continued success.

Hi Gweneth
I gladly grant permission for anyone to use all or parts of the text
in that Welcome Graphic

For those not easily able to create their own Graphic -
my graphic can be copied to your computer and permission
granted to send it out as you would any other public domain graphic

For those interested in creating their own graphic from scratch
they might wish to include some of my text and then add or revise
other parts of it as they think best

We all automatically have permission to refer to previous
SFI Forum Posts that have been created by any other member

Watch for my up-coming reply to Shelley which will have a few
suggestions about Creating a Larger Print Heading and a few personal
introductory lines above the main area

These suggestion pertain to using Canva which is the Platform that
I am familiar with and find easy to use

Remember that the Poster Size Template works best when you
want to create a lengthy message in Graphic

It is also possible to choose to create more than one page in same
color design etc - helpful for longer newsletters etc

Since the Links shown on a Graphic are NOT clickable I find it helpful to include clickable Links in the text that goes with the Graphic such as in email or TeamMail

Hi Shelley -
Just a few ideas about using Canva to create your own
Actually I had created a Large Print **Header** and a couple lines of
personal introduction above the main body of text that I shared
in this thread
Choosing the Header Style tool gives larger fonts for the
first line in Graphic which could be something like
**Greetings From (Your Name) **
Then I closed the Canva Header Tool and opened the
Body Text Tool to do the next paragraph below the Heading
(choose a small font there to save overall space)
Closed the Text Tool at the end of every paragraph

Then open Text tool to create the next paragraph and chose a
somewhat larger font to make it more easily readable

(If you decide to share that Graphic in a Stream Post -
it will be greatly reduced in size to fit the stream format)

Opening and closing the Text Tool for each paragraph seems to
make it easier to see how much space is available to work in as you
approach the bottom of the Poster Template area

I also found that individual paragraph working areas helped me
to more easily do any necessary edits without disturbing other
paragraphs

If you include Forum Links etc using the Bold function in
Canva Toolbar helps the Link stand out from other Text

Hope these ideas might be helpful

P.S. Since the Links shown on a Graphic are NOT clickable
I find it helpful to include clickable Links in the text that
goes with the Graphic such as in email or TeamMail
