How To Download A Font To Canva

When creating stunning designs on Canva, you may want to add some extra flair by using a custom font. This informative guide will walk you through the simple steps to download a font to Canva.

Step 1: Select Your Font

Before you can upload a font to Canva, you first need to find a font that suits your design. Various websites offer free and premium fonts. Once you find a font you love, download it to your computer. Most fonts will download as a .zip file that you’ll need to extract.

Step 2: Open Canva

Next, open up your web browser and go to the Canva website. Log into your account. If you do not already have one, you’ll need to create an account. Canva offers a free version as well as a premium version, Canva Pro, that comes with additional features.

Step 3: Open the Brand Kit

On Canva’s home screen, click on the “Brand Kit” option in the left-hand panel. Note that the ability to upload custom fonts is only available to Canva Pro subscribers, so ensure you have upgraded your account.

Step 4: Upload the Font

Under the ‘Brand Fonts’ section, click on the “Upload a new font” button. Browse your computer files and select the font file you wish to upload. Canva allows .ttf and .otf font files. Once you select the file, click on the “Open” button to upload. The font will appear under your ‘Brand Fonts’ section.

Step 5: Start Using the Font

Now that your font has been uploaded to Canva, you can start using it in your designs! When you next use the text tool, your newly uploaded font will be available in the font dropdown menu, ready for you to use.

And voila! You now know how to upload a font to Canva. Start giving your designs an extra personal touch with your unique fonts.
