How To Add A Font To Canva

Canva is a powerful graphic design tool that allows you to create stunning visuals for your social media, website, presentations, and much more. One of the great things about Canva is the availability of various fonts. However, sometimes, you might want to use a unique font not available in Canva’s library. In this blog post, we’ll guide you step-by-step on how to add a font to Canva.

Step 1: Upgrade to Canva Pro

Unfortunately, the ability to upload custom fonts is only available to Canva Pro, Canva for Enterprise, or Canva for Nonprofits users. To upgrade, click on the “Try Canva Pro” button on the top right of your Canva page. You can also access the pricing page directly at

Step 2: Download Your Desired Font

Before uploading, you’ll need to have the font file on your device. Font files typically come in .ttf or .otf format. You can find free fonts on websites like Google Fonts or DaFont, or purchase premium fonts from sites like MyFonts or Creative Market. Download the font to your device, ensuring it’s in the correct format and within the Canva file size limit of 4MB.

Step 3: Upload the Font to Canva

Now, let’s move onto the main process. Follow these steps to upload your font:

  1. Go to the Canva homepage and navigate to the “Brand Kit” section. If you have a Canva for Enterprise account, it may be under “Your Brand”.
  2. Scroll down until you see the “Uploaded Fonts” section. Click on “Upload a font”.
  3. Select the font file you downloaded earlier from your device and click on “Open”.

And voila, your font has been added to Canva! To use it, simply open any design editor in Canva, click on the text box, and select your newly uploaded font from the dropdown menu.

Note on Font Licenses

Remember, when you’re downloading fonts, especially from free font websites, always check the license associated with the font. Some fonts are only free for personal use and require a paid license for commercial use. Always respect the work of font creators and comply with their licensing requirements.
