Upload your own fonts

Using your own font is a great way to create a unique and cohesive portfolio of designs, or if you are representing a brand, is essential to keeping your designs on-brand.

As a Canva For Work subscriber, you are able to save your own custom fonts and easily apply them to any of your designs.

note: The font upload feature is exclusively available for Canva for Work subscribers. The Brand Kit, along with other Canva for Work features, can only be accessed on a desktop browser.

You can upload your own fonts via your Brand Kit:

  1. Click the Brand kit tab from the side panel of your homepage.
  2. Click on +Upload new font in the Uploaded Fonts section.
  3. Select which fonts you wish to upload.
  4. A popup will ask you to confirm you have the right to use the font you’re uploading. Check the box confirming you do and click on the green Yes, Upload Away button.

If you encounter an error message while uploading your design, please ensure that you are using the correct font file format and that your font is appropriately licensed.

You can upload up to 100 of your own custom fonts with Canva For Work. If you would like to add more, simply delete an uploaded font. This will not affect any designs that have been created using the deleted font.

note: Remember, only administrators and template designers can edit your brand kit, including uploading custom fonts.

Set your uploaded fonts as your default fonts

You can make sure your custom fonts are always on hand when creating your designs by setting them as your default heading options.

To do so:

  1. Click on the Brand kit tab from the Canva homepage.
  2. Click on the pencil to the right of the heading options to reveal formatting options.
  3. If you have already uploaded your custom font, select from the font drop-down menu. If you have not yet uploaded your font, select the Upload font option.

Use your uploaded fonts in the editor

You can easily access your uploaded fonts in the editor by clicking any text box and by loading the font selector drop-down menu.

  1. Click on the text box you wish to edit.
  2. Click on the font drop-down menu in the editor toolbar.
  3. Browse through the font selections under the Uploaded fonts section.
  4. Click on the font you wish to use. The new font will be automatically applied to the text box.

Uploading fonts with special or foreign characters/symbols

Currently, Canva fully supports languages that use the basic Latin character set: the twenty-six letters of the Latin alphabet, numbers, and punctuation.

An error may occur if the font you’re trying to upload has characters not yet supported by Canva. For more information on this, feel free to check out our Supported languages article.
