How To Make Editable Canva Templates For Etsy

Designing editable templates on Canva for your Etsy shop can be a game changer for your business. It’s an excellent way to attract more customers and add a new stream of income. Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating your editable Canva templates for Etsy.

Step 1: Sign Up on Canva

The first step is to sign up on Canva. Visit and sign up for a free account. You can choose to upgrade to the pro version, but the free version is enough to get you started.

Step 2: Choose a Template Type

Choose what type of template you’d like to create. Canva offers a wide range of template choices, from social media posts to invitations, presentations, and more.

Step 3: Design Your Template

Use Canva’s drag-and-drop feature, and its library of over a million images, graphics, and fonts, to create your template. Keep in mind what your target audience on Etsy would find useful and appealing.

Step 4: Make Your Template Editable

For your Etsy customers to edit the templates, they need to be customizable. Make sure that all elements that your customers will want to personalize, such as text boxes, are easily editable.

Step 5: Save and Download Your Template

Once you’re satisfied with your design, it’s time to save and download the template. Click on the File tab, choose Save and then Download.

Step 6: Upload to Etsy

Finally, it’s time to upload your template to Etsy. Make sure to provide clear instructions for your customers on how to access and edit the template.

Sharing the Editable Canva Template Link

When you upload your template to Etsy, you’re not actually uploading the Canva file. Instead, you’re sharing the link to the template that you have set to public in Canva. Here is how to do it:

  <li>In Canva, click on the <strong>Share</strong> button at the top right of the screen.</li>
  <li>In the pop up, click on the <strong>Copy link</strong> button.</li>
  <li>Paste this link in your Etsy listing. Your customers will access the template through this link.</li>

With these steps, creating and selling editable Canva templates on Etsy becomes a relatively simple process. Remember to keep your audience in mind, design with customization in mind, and always provide clear instructions for use. Happy designing!
