How To Add Your Font To Canva

Canva has become an essential tool for graphic designers, bloggers, and content creators when it comes to creating eye-catching visuals. While it offers a variety of fonts, there may be instances where you want to incorporate your own custom font. If you’re unfamiliar with how to do so, you’ve come to the right place. This blog post will guide you through the straightforward steps of adding your personalized font to Canva.

Step 1: Upgrade to Canva Pro

To add your own fonts, you’ll need to upgrade to Canva Pro. This feature is unfortunately not available for free users. Canva Pro comes with many other advantages like access to premium templates, images, and several advanced features.

Step 2: Prepare your Font File

Ensure your font file is in the right format. Canva supports .OTF (OpenType Font) and .TTF (TrueType Font) file types. If your font is in a different format, you will need to convert it. There are several online tools that can handle this conversion for you.

Step 3: Upload the Font to Canva

Once your font file is ready, follow the steps outlined below:

  1. Log in to your Canva Pro account.
  2. Click on the “Brand Kit” tab situated on the left-hand side of the page.
  3. Scroll down and look for the “Upload a Font” button within the “Brand Fonts” section.
  4. Click on the button and locate the font file on your computer. Select it and click “Open” to upload it.
  5. Once uploaded, your font will be available under the “Uploaded Fonts” section.

Remember, you need to have the rights to use, distribute and modify the font. Canva will ask you to confirm this during the upload process.

Step 4: Use Your Uploaded Font

To use your uploaded font:

  1. Open the design or template you want to modify.
  2. Click on the text box to select it.
  3. In the font dropdown menu on the top bar of the editor, scroll down to the “Uploaded Fonts” section.
  4. Select your uploaded font.

That’s it! Now you can use your own font in your designs on Canva.


Adding your own font to Canva can help you create a unique and consistent brand image across all your designs. The process is fairly straightforward, and with this guide, you should be able to do it with ease. Happy designing!
