"Makes designing ads easy"

What do you like best?

The ability to create an entire ad campaign with multiple sizes and with animation is an incredible resource! We love the ability to to take an initial design and see how it would be auto-populated to the different ad size requirements. Being able to easily download the ad assets in there specified sizes is so easy and straightforward. We are a huge fan of this tool and really enjoy using it.Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The ability to share ad assets/designs between users is not easy nor straightforward. I want the ability to start working on an ad set and then send it over to a senior designer to review and tweak as necessary. Currently, I am not tracking that this exists. If it does, it is not easily visible to me.Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Great tool for easily designing and sizing ads/creative for an advertising campaign.Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to save a lot of time when designing out ads because different platforms require specific sizes but it is all the same design and the creative is generally the same.

“Helps Our Agency Create All the Display Ads We Desire”

Overall: Bannersnack helps our agency impress clients by delivering responsive ad templates and social media graphic templates. It takes our team less time to create beautiful ads and that's a win for our design-inclined individuals and our non-design-inclined individuals.
Pros: Bannersnack's display ad templates and ad creator are world class. Being able to place your headline, CTA and image into a sidebar and have Bannersnack create many display ads that look beautiful is incredible. They also have great templates for social media posts as well.
Cons: I've been using Bannersnack for just about two years now and sometimes I find the auto-saving doesn't work as expected and I find myself losing work I got distracted from. Other than that, I have no other complaints!
Reasons for Switching to Creatopy: Price & simplicity - Photoshop was too difficult for all of our staff to learn and was too expensive for our account managers to all use just for ad creation & social media graphic creation.

What the Interwebs Say

Users are very happy with Creatopy's tools to create and design Ads. They are very satisfied with this tool's templates and features to add all sorts of animations, CTAs, and assets to their Ads. Also, they really like that they can work on many Ads at once. Some complaints revolve around the limited complexity of this tool's design possibilities and some users also said they couldn't share their Ads assets with their partners.
