How To Add Font To Canva

Canva is a simple and powerful design tool that allows both professionals and novices to create stunning visuals. One aspect of this versatility is the ability to upload and use your own fonts. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of how to add a font to Canva.

Before You Begin

Before we dive into the steps of adding a font to Canva, it’s important to note that this feature is only available to Canva Pro, Canva for Enterprise, Canva for Education, and Canva for Nonprofits users. If you’re using the basic, free version of Canva, you’ll only be able to use the fonts provided in their library. Should you wish to upgrade your account to access this feature and more, you can do so on Canva’s Pricing page.

Adding Fonts to Canva

Step 1: Navigate to the Brand Kit Page

After logging into your Canva account, click on the Brand Kit tab from the left-hand side panel. This is where you can manage your brand’s unique elements, including fonts.

Step 2: Upload Your Custom Font

Scroll down to the Uploaded Fonts section and click on the Upload a font button. This will open up a window where you can select the font file from your device. Canva supports .TTF, .OTF, and .WOFF file formats. Once you’ve located your file, select it and click on Open.

Step 3: Review and Agree to Canva’s Font Upload Terms

A window will appear stating Canva’s font upload terms. Review these carefully and if you agree, click on the Yes, I agree button to proceed.

Step 4: Wait for Your Font to be Uploaded

Canva will now upload your font. This may take a few moments, but once done, your new font will appear in the Uploaded Fonts section.

Using Your Custom Font in Canva

Now that you have uploaded your font, it’s time to use it in your design. Create or open a design, then click on the Text tab. Click on the font dropdown menu. Your newly uploaded font should appear at the top of the dropdown list in the Uploaded Fonts section. Simply click on it, and start typing with your new font!
