What Fonts Can I Use in Canva?

Last updated on December 4, 2022 @ 5:36 pm

As a general rule, you can use any fonts in Canva that you have installed on your computer. This includes system fonts, as well as any fonts you’ve downloaded from the internet.

If you want to use a font that’s not installed on your computer, you can upload it to Canva for free. We currently support TTF, OTF and WOFF font formats.

To upload a font, click on the ‘Uploads’ tab in the editor and select the ‘Upload your own images’ option. Then, click on the ‘Upload Fonts’ button and select your font file from your computer.

Once your font is uploaded, it will be available for use in all future designs. You can also add it to your ‘Favorites’ for quick and easy access.

If you’re looking for some inspiration, we have a curated selection of beautiful fonts available for purchase in our marketplace. Simply click on the ‘Marketplace’ tab and browse through our range of options.

When styling text in HTML, there are generally three different ways you can go about it: using inline styles, using an internal style sheet, or using an external style sheet. Inline styles are the least preferred method because they tend to be messy and hard to maintain, but they can be useful in certain situations. Internal and external style sheets are much cleaner and more efficient ways of styling text, and are thus the methods we recommend most often.

To style text using an inline style, simply use the < span > tag around the text you want to style and use the “style” attribute to specify what CSS properties you want to apply to that text. For example:

< span style="font-family: Arial;" >This text is styled using an inline style.< /span >

To style text using an internal style sheet, create a < style > element in the < head > section of your HTML document and put all of your CSS rules inside it. For example:

< head >
< style >
body {
font-family: Arial;
< /style >
< /head >

All of the text in this document will be styled using the Arial font family because we’ve applied that rule to the < body > element. You can apply CSS rules to any HTML element in this way.

To style text using an external style sheet, create a separate CSS file containing all of your CSS rules and link to it from your HTML document using the < link > tag. For example:

< head >
< link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="mystylesheet.css" >
< /head >

All of the text in this document will be styled using the rules contained in mystylesheet.css . Again, you can apply CSS rules to any HTML element by Targeting it in your external style sheet.

Conclusion, there are many different ways that you can style text using HTML – which method you choose will depend on your specific needs and preferences. In most cases though, we recommend either using an internal or external style sheet for cleanliness and efficiency purposes.

PRO TIP: If you are creating a design in Canva, be aware that not all fonts can be used. Some fonts are only available for premium users, and others can only be used for specific purposes (e.g. commercial use only). Be sure to check the terms of use for each font before using it in your design.
