Design folders (Canva 1.0)

Design folders offer an excellent way to share and organize designs within your Canva account.

You can use them to organize current work, archive past work, or collect related designs being created by multiple team members. Folders you create are visible only to you –to allow others to see and interact with them, you must share it with them.

With a standard Canva account, you can create up to 2 design folders. If you upgrade to Canva for Work, you can enjoy the premium feature to create an unlimited number of folders.

note: This article discusses how to create and manage design folders on Canva 1.0. If you’re using Canva 2.0, head over to our article on Design folders (Canva 2.0). If you don’t know what version of Canva you’re using, head over to our article about Canva 1.0 and 2.0 to find out.
