How to Curve Text in Canva

Time needed: 1 minute

  1. Type your text

  2. On the toolbar, click on Effects

  3. Choose Curve

  4. Use the slider to adjust the shape of your curve

    Sliding to the left curves your text upwards and adjusts the size of the circle, sliding to the right curves your text downwards and also adjusts the size of the circle.

  5. You can either use the resize handles to resize your text or the font size icon

  6. Click on the spacing icon on the toolbar to adjust the letter spacing

    This allows your curved text to become a full circle!

  7. You’re done! 🙂

  • Double-click on your text
