Add beautiful typography to your program

Canva’s text tools make creating typographic art a breeze. From script fonts to sans serif, heavy types to light, there are over a hundred fonts in Canva to choose from and pair together. Plus, you can take advantage of textholders, which are pre-made, well-balanced typography that you can just drag and drop anywhere on your layout then edit to reflect your event details.

Include branding in your design

If you’re holding an event for a company or brand, you’ll want to make sure that all participants know who owns the event. Ensure that even your event program carries your brand by including your official logo, colors and other branding elements. Canva for Work users have the advantage of the “Brand Kit” which stores all your brand’s visual assets so you can apply them across all your designs quickly. It includes your logo, brand palette, and even the ability to upload custom brand fonts.

Collaborate with your entire team

If you’re working with a team or have various stakeholders who need to add their input into your event program, you can easily share your design as an editable file and have them place their edits straight into Canva. It’s as easy as clicking a share button and ticking a box to give them editing permission. Copy and share the generated link and they’ll be able to access your design from any computer, laptop, iPhone or iPad device.
