Crello vs. Stencil

Stencil and Crello differ in a lot of ways.
Here's how we're different...

Out of all the Crello alternatives, here's how Stencil compares:

Crello is a great tool depending on what you're looking for, but we've taken a different approach with Stencil. Stencil was built from the ground up to be the fastest way to design images and graphics.

Stencil is built for speed.

From the beginning, Stencil has focused itself on being the ultimate time saver. From the first day, we planned and designed Stencil to be the fastest and easiest to use graphic design tool.

That means we had to remove a lot of the power-features you might find in a tool like Crello. But it also means that with Stencil, you can get in, design your images or graphics, and get on with everything else you need to do to keep your business growing.

And because we dream of a future where graphic design is as fast as possible, we've developed a series of add-ons for Chrome, Firefox and Safari so you can create images from any page you're on.

Share Previews


Stencil is designed with social sharing in mind.

Another way we stand apart from Crello is by showing you Social Previews, so that you never have to worry about how your image will look after you've shared it.







Stencil has all-inclusive pricing.

While Crello has it's own collection of photos and icons, they charge by the asset. That can get pretty expensive. With Stencil, you get access to all 5,000,000+ photos and 3,100,000+ icons for one price... plus tons of amazing pre-made templates.

Stencil is here to help.

We take pride in offering the best customer support you'll possible have with a graphic design service. We've had personal phone calls with hundreds of customers, and love learning about what Stencil can do better.

Schedule with Buffer

Stencil integrates with great social tools like Buffer.

Because Stencil has a strong focus on designing images for social media, we let you create images and schedule them straight to Buffer, without ever leaving Stencil. If you're logged into your Buffer account, it's just two clicks to queue your image.

Create images & schedule with Buffer in seconds.

Scheduling images will help you save even more time. If you have a Buffer account, you're all set to schedule images right from Stencil.
