How To Upload A Font On Canva

Canva is a fantastic online design tool that allows you to create stunning graphics with ease. But did you know that you can customize your designs even further by uploading your own fonts? Let’s walk through the steps needed to upload a font on Canva.

Step 1: Ensure You Have the Right Account Type

Before we dive into the steps, it’s essential to note that only Canva Pro, Enterprise, or Education accounts have access to this feature. If you’re using a free account, you might consider upgrading to take advantage of this and many other features.

Step 2: Navigate to the Brand Kit

From your Canva homepage, click on the Brand Kit tab. This is where you’ll upload and manage all your custom fonts.

Step 3: Upload Your Font

Under the “Upload a font” section, click on the “Upload a new font” button. This will open a dialog box that allows you to browse your computer and upload your font file.

Keep in mind, Canva accepts .OTF, .TTF, and .WOFF font file formats. Ensure your font file is in one of the accepted formats before uploading.

Step 4: Use Your Font

Once you’ve uploaded your font, it will be immediately available for use in your designs. To find your uploaded font, open the text tool in the editor, and your uploaded fonts will be at the top of the font list under “Uploaded Fonts.”

If you do not see your font, try refreshing your page or double-check to ensure the font uploaded correctly.


Uploading custom fonts to Canva allows you to ensure brand consistency across all your designs. It’s a simple process that can make a huge difference in your designs. So go ahead, start uploading your favourite fonts, and bring your creativity to life!

Note: While Canva allows for font uploading, it’s important to ensure you have the correct licensing for any fonts you choose to upload. Always respect the rights of font creators!
