How Do You Upload A Font To Canva

Have you ever encountered a situation where you are working on a design project in Canva and none of the provided fonts match your desired aesthetic? Canva offers various fonts, but what if you have a specific one in mind that is not available in their library? The solution is straightforward: upload your own font to Canva. If you are unsure about the process, do not fret! This guide will assist you with step-by-step instructions.


Before we start, it’s important to note that font upload is only available to Canva Pro, Canva for Enterprise, Canva for Education, and Canva for Nonprofits users.

Step 1: Prepare Your Font File

Canva supports font files in .OTF or .TTF formats. Be sure that your font file is in one of these formats before proceeding. If not, you will need to convert it using a font converter tool.

Step 2: Access the Font Upload Feature

Once your font file is ready, you can access the font upload feature by following these steps:

  1. Login to your Canva account.
  2. Click on the ‘Brand Kit’ tab from the left side menu.
  3. Scroll down to find the ‘Uploaded fonts’ section. Here, click on the ‘Upload a font’ button.

Step 3: Upload Your Font

After clicking the ‘Upload a font’ button, a window will appear. Click on ‘Upload a new font’ button. You will then need to locate the font file on your computer. You can either manually find your font file in the file selector window that pops up, or you can drag your font file into the window. Once you’ve selected your font, click the ‘Open’ button and your font will start uploading.

Step 4: Use Your Uploaded Font

Once your font has been uploaded, it will appear in your ‘Uploaded fonts’ section. Now, whenever you work on a design, your uploaded font will be available to use. Simply open the text editor, click on the font selection drop-down, and find your uploaded font under the ‘Uploaded fonts’ category.


That’s it! You’ve successfully uploaded a font to Canva. With this feature, you can personalize your designs even more, ensuring they align with your brand or project’s aesthetic. Remember to respect the licenses of the fonts you upload, as some fonts might not allow for commercial use without proper permission.
