Selling Canva templates

At Canva, we create templates for our users. However, we also welcome people who’d like to create and sell their own Canva-made designs as third-party templates outside our platform.

This means that while you cannot resell templates that we created, you still can create yours for your business.

note: Changing the content of a Canva template without completely changing the design is not creating your own work and is not allowed.

This page lists some practical suggestions to make your products work as smoothly as possible. We also added some legal recommendations to keep you, your customers, and Canva’s users all safe and productive.

 

Sharing your design as a template


The best way to share your template with your customers is to provide them with a use as template link:

  1. Open the design you want to share.
  2. Click Share above the editor.
  3. Select Share with others.
  4. At the bottom part of the menu, click the ᐯ icon.
  5. Select use as template as the access option.
  6. Click Copy link to copy the share link.

This feature is available with a Canva Pro or Canva for Enterprise subscription. It’s also available with a Canva for Education and Canva for Nonprofits account status.

Paid subscription is not required for your customers to use your design as a template. Doing it this way allows them to duplicate your design and make their edits, and keep your template untouched.

If you do not have a Canva Pro subscription, you can still share designs manually. Refer below.

 

Manually sharing your designs


  1. Open the design you want to share.
  2. Click Share above the editor.
  3. Select Share with others.
  4. At the bottom part of the menu, click the ᐯ icon.
  5. Select to edit as the access option.
  6. Click Copy link to copy the share link.

After sharing the link to your customers, make sure to tell them not to make edits directly, and do the following instead:

  1. Once the design is open in the editor, click File on the toolbar.
  2. Select Make a copy. A copy of the design will then open on a new tab.
  3. Close the tab of the original shared design, and make edits on the copied version.

 

Using images and videos


When creating templates, you can use your own assets, as well as elements, images, and videos from the Canva library.

We encourage using the free elements from our library, so your customers won’t need to purchase licenses.

If you use premium or paid elements, they will have watermarks on your design when shared. Your customers can still purchase licenses directly from us to remove the watermarks.

note: By using your own assets in templates that you sell, you ensure that you have all the legal rights to distribute them. Resources found online belong to their copyright holders, and cannot be used without their permission.

 

Legal recommendations


  • Make sure to mention that your sale of templates is not affiliated with Canva in any official way.
  • Make sure your templates are your own original content and they do not feature third-party intellectual property, or resemble Canva’s own templates.
  • Mention that Canva makes no promises regarding third-party templates, and Canva shall not be liable for anything arising from the creation (or purchase) of a third-party template.
