How To Add A New Font To Canva

We will provide a step-by-step guide on how to incorporate a new font into your Canva designs. Canva is a fantastic tool for generating visually appealing content, but there may be times when you require a specific font not offered in the pre-loaded list. Luckily, Canva permits users to upload their own fonts.

Step 1: Find the Font You Want to Add

First, you need to find the font that you want to add to Canva. There are numerous websites to obtain fonts from, such as Google Fonts, Font Squirrel, and DaFont. Once you find the font you like, download the .ttf or .otf file.

Step 2: Open Canva and Navigate to Brand Kit

Once you have your font file, go to and sign in to your account. Click on the “Brand Kit” link in the left-hand sidebar. If you are using the free version of Canva, you may need to upgrade to Canva Pro to access this feature.

Step 3: Upload Your Font

Once you’re in the Brand Kit, scroll down to the ‘Uploaded Fonts’ section. Click on the ‘Upload a font’ button, then select your .ttf or .otf file from your computer. Once uploaded, your font will appear in the ‘Uploaded Fonts’ section.

Click on 'Upload a Font' > Select .ttf or .otf file > Click 'Open'

Step 4: Use Your New Font in Canva Designs

Now that you have uploaded your new font to Canva, you can use it in any of your designs! Simply create or open a design, click on the text box, and then select your new font from the dropdown list at the top of the screen.


Adding your own fonts to Canva can help you make your designs even more personalized and unique. Just remember that the ability to upload your own fonts is a Canva Pro feature. However, if you frequently use Canva for your designs, the upgrade is certainly worth it!

Happy designing!
