Hidden away in the “TEXT” toolbox, these frames add some additional flair to your Pitkocreation. While most users would only think to slap text frames onto their infographics and call it a day, these unique designs can also help you create beautiful products on their own.

The combination of fonts, graphics, colors, and styles draws attention to an otherwise mundane stack of text, allowing information to be consumed and digested more efficiently. There is an array of ways text frames could add a unique touch to your personal life and business.

We’ve gathered 17 examples of text frames that we hope will inspire you the next time you’re looking to use Piktochart to create something amazing!


Labels

While organizing your kitchen or a bathroom cabinet, why not brighten it up as well? Ditch the ready-made labels for your own jars and containers, and create your very own unique label!

Infographic headers

For a more conventional use of text frames, start your infographic out with one. Capture your readers’ attention by synthesizing your infographic headline into a text frame.

Business signage

Who says you have to hire a graphic designer to create a logo for your business? Piktochart is perfect for people without a design background. Use the text frame feature to showcase your vision for your business! You can then download it in a high resolution, ideal for printing on large formats.

Newspaper ads

Stand out among other ads with a sleek, flat design. Text frames force you to be concise and straight to the point because you are limited in the amount of text you can put in a frame. This makes your ad easier to read and might even prompt readers to call to find out more!

Notepad designs 

Let’s face it. None of the notepads out there have the exact cover design you really want. Create your own design and incorporate a quotation that truly resonates with you.
