How To Upload Fonts To Canva

Are you tired of the same old fonts Canva offers and want to give your designs a unique touch? Uploading your own fonts to Canva might be the solution you’re looking for. Follow this step-by-step guide to learn how to do this.

Step 1: Find Your Desired Font

The first step to uploading a font to Canva is to find the font you want to use. There are several online resources available where you can download fonts for free or purchase them. A few popular resources include Google Fonts, DaFont, and Font Squirrel.

Step 2: Download the Font

Once you’ve found your desired font, download it to your computer. Fonts typically download as .zip files. You’ll need to extract the .otf or .ttf file from the downloaded zip file.

Step 3: Log in to your Canva Account

Log in to your Canva account. If you do not have an account, you must create one. Please note that you must have Canva Pro, Canva for Enterprise, or Canva for Education to upload custom fonts.

Step 4: Go to the Brand Kit Page

Once you’re logged in, click on the “Brand Kit” tab from the sidebar on your homepage. The brand kit page is where you can upload your custom fonts.

Step 5: Upload Your Font

Scroll down to the section titled “Uploaded Fonts”. Click on the “Upload a new font” button. A window will pop up prompting you to select the font files you want to upload. Navigate to where you saved your font files, select them, and click the “Open” button.

Step 6: Use Your Uploaded Font

Your uploaded font should now be available to use in your Canva designs. To use it, simply open the text tool in Canva, click on the font dropdown, and find your uploaded font in the “Uploaded Fonts” section.

That’s all there is to it! With these steps, you can upload any font to Canva and give your designs a unique touch. However, please note that the use of some fonts may be restricted due to copyright laws, so ensure you have the rights to use the font for your intended purpose.


Uploading custom fonts to Canva allows you to personalize your designs and make them stand out. It’s a simple process that can make a huge difference in your design projects. So, go ahead and try uploading your first font!
