Wrapping Up


Adding a custom font to your project can vastly improve the overall look and feel of your work.


Custom fonts can be used to create a more personalised look for your projects, and can also add a level of creativity, uniqueness and distinction that may not be possible with the default fonts provided by Canva.


Additionally, custom fonts can be used to create more specific or targeted looks for your projects, making them more effective and engaging for your target audience.


If you're looking to add a bit of extra style to your projects, or to create a more specific look, adding a custom font is an excellent way to do so.


Follow these steps to do it yourself.
