How To Add A Font On Canva

As a well-known online graphic design platform, Canva enables its users to create a variety of designs, including presentations and printed materials. One way to elevate your design is by incorporating a custom font. In this blog post, we will provide step-by-step instructions on how to add a custom font to your Canva design.

Step 1: Open Canva

First, navigate to and log into your account. If you don’t have one, you can easily sign up and create a free account.

Step 2: Select Brand Kit

Next, click on the “Brand Kit” tab in the left-hand menu. This section of Canva allows you to set default brand colors, logos, and yes, fonts for your designs.

Step 3: Upload Your Font

Click on the “Upload a Font” button in the “Brand Fonts” section.

Step 4: Select Your Font File

Find the font file on your device. Make sure your font file format is either .otf or .ttf as these are the only formats Canva supports.

Step 5: Upload and Use Your Font

Click on the “Open” button to upload your font. Once the upload process is complete, you can start using your new font immediately in your designs.

It’s important to note that Canva’s custom font feature is only available to Canva Pro, Canva for Enterprise, Canva for Nonprofits, or Canva for Education users. So, if you’re using the free version of Canva, you would need to upgrade to use this feature.


Adding a custom font to Canva is a straightforward task. All you need is your desired font and a few clicks. It’s a simple way to enhance your designs and make them more personalized and appealing. Happy designing!
