PicMonkey for Beginners

A Note from our Chief Information Officer

Hello again! It's time for the next installment of our Direct Creatives Insider! August has been a wild ride of glitches and website mess, and we love and appreciate each and every one of you as you continue to be patient with our growing pains (we hope these are the worst ones we have). 

This September edition is centered around PicMonkey - an online graphics program that can help you create graphics and images perfect for your website and social media needs!

Jennifer Pitney will be leading the way down this informative path with a video and a quick reference guide that have been put together just for you! She has been using PicMonkey for over two years now and has learned some really great tips for teaching others how to make fun and attractive graphics of their own.

Thank you for all of your patience with this new subscription. Our minds are always on how we can best serve each and every one of you. So, this month we are introducing a new feature, a monthly calendar of fun "holidays" to help you with engagement! Make sure to check it out and let us know what you think! Don't forget to scroll all the way to the bottom because some of our Store Owners are also sharing exclusive deals, just for our Insiders!

We look forward to producing quality and exciting content for you for years to come. If you ever have feedback or questions, please feel free to contact us through our Direct Creatives Facebook Page or in the DC Insider Facebook Group. And if you aren't in the group yet, you should join us! 
Live Creatively,
