How To Upload A Font To Canva For Free

If you work as a graphic designer or content creator, you may find that Canva’s library does not include your desired font style. However, there is no need to worry as Canva offers a free feature for you to upload your own custom fonts. In this blog post, we will provide a step-by-step guide on how to use this feature.


Before we get started, you will need to have the font file that you want to upload. The font file must be in TrueType (.ttf) or OpenType (.otf) format. If you do not have the font file yet, there are several websites where you can download fonts for free, such as DaFont and Google Fonts.

Step-by-step Guide

Here, we assume that you already have a Canva account and the font file. If you do not have a Canva account yet, you can create one for free.

Step 1: Log Into Your Canva Account

Open your web browser and head over to Canva. Click on the “Log In” button at the top right corner of the screen, and enter your login credentials.

Step 2: Open Brand Kit Page

Once you’re logged in, click on the “Brand Kit” option in the left-hand side menu. If you are using Canva for free, you might need to scroll down a bit to find this option.

Step 3: Upload Your Font

On the “Brand Kit” page, scroll down to the “Uploaded Fonts” section. Click on the “Upload a font” button. A new window will appear. Click “Choose a font file to upload” and then select the font file from your computer. Afterwards, click on the “Upload” button.

Click on "Upload a font" -> "Choose a font file to upload". Then, select the font file from your computer. Finally, click on "Upload".

Step 4: Confirm the Upload

After clicking the “Upload” button, Canva will ask you to confirm that you have the right to use the font. Check the box and click on the “Yes, upload away” button.

Step 5: Start Using Your Font

Now your font has been uploaded successfully to Canva! You can find your uploaded font in the font dropdown menu when you create a new design. Simply click on the font menu, scroll down to “Uploaded Fonts” section, and you should see your new font there.
