What to remove from vector submissions

Here are few things you can remove to maximize the acceptance chances of your vectors:


Guides include crop marks, instructions and anything else that is not part of the usable illustration.


Remove plain backgrounds that don’t form part of the illustration itself.


Users expect to be able to edit the text they see in their designs, so text included in a vector is confusing and frustrating. For this reason we filter out vectors with sample text, instructions and any other text that isn’t a core part of the design. Even then, vectors with text are limited to a single language and aren’t offered as broadly as files without text.

Heavily integrated words that are not made with fonts are usually ok. If an illustration is primarily text or doesn’t work with the text removed, it’s unlikely that we’ll accept it.


We unfortunately do not support strokes as of the moment, so all strokes must be outlined and kept as a shape or compound path. Along with this, all shapes in the vector file must be paths.


Our system can’t recolor vectors with gradients yet. They can still be accepted if they pass all other tests but they won’t be recolorable in Canva. Recolorable vectors sell much better than those that are not but we still accept them.
