How do I use my own font in Canva for Work?

Custom font is your brand's unique identity. With Canva for Work, you can upload your own custom fonts to give your business its own handwriting. These fonts can be used by anyone on your Canva for Work team.

Here’s how to upload your font:

Go to Your Brand

From the Your Brand screen, click Brand Kit.

Edit your font

In the Fonts section, click the edit button beside your Heading, Sub-heading or Body text. Then select Upload a font.

Select your own font file

From here, find the font file on your computer. We support .otf, .ttf. and .woff file formats.

Upload your font

You’ll be prompted to confirm your right to use this font. Please note that Canva only supports custom fonts that are owned by the uploader. Licensed fonts may work in some circumstances however Canva makes no guarantees this is the case. To upload your font, click Yes. Upload away!

Now, wait for the file to finish uploading.

Your font is now ready to go and available in the Canva editor for you and your Canva for Work team! You can customize each font in your Canva for Work Brand Kit, which will help you keep your designs consistent and on-brand. You can set a maximum of three custom fonts for your header, sub-header, and body text default options and you can upload up to 10 fonts initially. You can replace an uploaded custom font at any time and if you have any designs which use one of your old custom fonts, that font will still be available within your designs.

Canva only supports custom fonts that are owned by the uploader. Licensed fonts may work in some circumstances however Canva makes no guarantees this is the case.

Note: If you share an editable version of a design containing your custom font with a non-team member, they will automatically be redirected to the view-only version of your design. This is because Canva cannot verify whether the non-team member is licensed to use that custom font and therefore, we cannot extend the right to use that font beyond your team.
