It shouldn’t surprise you if I said that visuals are more powerful than words. They have the power to convey an idea or emotion that will last longer and have a greater impact on our mind.
Even Facebook has started using pictures for status. This cool Facebook feature lets you create awesome visuals instead of uploading a boring text status. However, the feature isn’t too great for brands. And it’s not available on all the platforms.
That’s why we need poster-maker apps. Whether you are an individual or a brand, you can create awesome posters, banners, flyers, and marketing creatives using these apps. These poster-creator apps are particularly useful when you need to make promotional graphics.Also Read: Top 10 Free Photo-Editing Apps for Android in 2017
So, in this post, we have handpicked 5 best poster-maker apps that you can download on your Android devices.
1. Poster Maker, Flyer Designer, Ads Page Designer
The ‘Poster Maker, Flyer Designer, Ads Page Designer’ app has everything that you need from a poster-creator app. Whether you want to create posters from scratch or use the pre-designed posters, the app offers you both.
In the pre-designed posters, you can customize all the layers according to your wish. You can change font, colors, background etc. Currently, you get sample posters in three categories – Free Designs, Sales, and Sports.
If you want to create a new poster, you are offered a myriad of settings and options. Right from the start, you can choose the background from multiple options such as color, image, texture, or sample background. Once the background is selected, you are then the master of the app.
The app offers a wide variety of stickers too. You can choose from sale stickers, offer banners, ribbons, decorations etc. You also get effects and cool customization options for text.
Overall I like the app, as it offers all the features required from a poster-maker app. However, I feel there could have been more free templates, like the ones present in the next app.
2. Canva – Free Photo Editor & Graphic Design Tool
With over 60,000+ templates, the Canva app has a template for almost every occasion. Not only that, it also offers templates in different sizes and types. For instance, there are separate templates for Facebook covers, Flyers, Invitations, and Twitter posts etc.
After selecting a template, you can customize it fully. While the app provides some cliparts, it lacks stickers. You can, however, add multiple font layers and images in this app.
Trust me, you are going to love this beautiful app. It makes poster making so easy. Even if you are a newbie, your friends and co-workers will be surprised by your work.
PosterLabs is a very classy app that lets you create professional banners and posters. It doesn’t let you start from the scratch but offers customizable templates. You get three categories of templates – Classic, Stylish, and Minimal. Choose any template from these categories and customize the pictures according to your wish.
While the app offers awesome templates, strangely it doesn’t let you customize the text. You can change a few lines though but not all. Bummer!
I wish the app let us change the text. Until we get that feature, we will have to live with the pre-defined text.
4. Digital Flyer & Poster Maker 2018
If you ignore the ads in the Digital Flyer & Poster Maker 2018 app, you will realize it offers super cool templates. Again, you cannot start from a blank template but you can modify the existing templates.
The app offers various template categories such as Business, Corporate, Event, Fitness, Grand Opening, Part, Restaurant and others. When you select a template, you can first change the background image followed by other design elements which, thankfully, includes text.
Although it’s a great app for creating posters, I personally feel there is something missing in the app design. It doesn’t feel user-friendly. Feel free to give it a shot though.
5. Desygner: Free Graphic Design, Photos, Full Editor
You can create awesome professional images for free with the Desygner app. This app lets you create social media posts, headers, ads, banners, flyers, business cards, newsletters and a bunch of other things. This app even lets you create logos. While some templates are available for free, you can purchase rest of the premium templates.
This app lets you customize even the tiny details of images. You can view the version history and resize images. Once you are done creating your masterpiece, you can either download the image or publish it directly to the social networks.
Okay, not nitpicking here but the app kind of seems slow as compared to the other apps. We will still recommend you to check this app as it’s a powerful app and you can basically do everything with it.
Some More Options
Most of the above-mentioned apps let you be creative with images. If, however, you want to create posters using text only, check Poster Maker, Poster Maker & Poster Designer, and Textgram.
Now that you know the Android apps that you should use for creating flyers, posters, and banners, get your inner artist ready to create superb art pieces.
