Try Canva Pro Free for 30 Days

Although I have provided a list of free Canva fonts, you should be aware that the free options are more limited than what is available in Canva Pro. This is true for both the quality and quantity of fonts.

Because of this, I recommend that you consider upgrading to Pro if you haven’t already. You’ll get access to 100+ million premium assets including stock photos, videos, audio, fonts, and graphics. Additionally, you’ll be able to upload beautiful custom fonts from online marketplaces like Creative Market. If you’ve been wondering if you can add fonts in Canva, the answer is yes!

If you’d like to try Canva Pro free for 30 days, you can click the image below and start today.

What Is a Script Font

A script font is a font style that appears handwritten or cursive. This style is ideal for titles, headings, and short copy, as it creates an elegant and modern feel.

Not surprisingly, script fonts are one of the most popular font categories on Canva. These fonts are perfect for industries such as coaching, weddings, beauty, fashion, and photography because they can add a feminine and stylish touch.

The Canva fonts on this list can be used to create Pinterest pins, Instagram posts, opt-in freebies, and other digital products. It is extremely easy to create content for your business, website, or blog! These fonts on Canva are free for commercial use as well.
