Browse through Canva’s amazing media library

Choose from the many free design elements you can find on Canva. Click “Elements” and choose lines, illustrations, shapes and icons to add to your gift tag. Each photo or illustration is carefully reviewed and curated so your gift tag designs are sure to look great whether printed or shared online. Don’t like the colors? No problem. You can change the colors to suit your gift tag.

Stack imagers or other design elements by clicking “Arrange” and move text to the front of the image.

Create elegant typographic art using textholders

Write your message using beautiful typography by taking advantage of Canva’s textholder tool. Textholders are little sets of elegantly paired fonts you can simply drag and drop into your design. You can even create your own by using Canva’s free-form text tools. Choose from over a hundred different fonts, change up the color and sizes and drag it to where your message will best shine.

Print and share your gift tags

When your gift tags are ready to print, choose between PDF, highres JPEG or PNG files. You’ll get crisp, clear and colourful gift tags you will be proud to share.

You can also share your gift tags online. Attach them to emails or post on your favorite social media site. That’s part of the beauty of using Canva. It gives you so many ways to share your creations.


Embellish your gift tag with a simple, heartfelt line introducing the gift to your recipient. You might write something like, “Here’s a little something from me to you” or “Something special for someone special.” Keep your message shorter than a gift card message.

Standard gift tags come in 3-5 x 2.5 inches. Small gift tags are usually around 2 x 1 inches, and are great for smaller gifts. You can find larger gift tags, as big as 9 x 4 inches, for gifts or projects that require them.

For elegance and sophistication, choose a Script or Cursive font like Edwardian Script or Yellowtail. For attention-grabbing quirkiness, go for Pinewood or Betty Noir. For a more traditional look, choose a Serif font like Cambria or Baskerville. For a modern style, try a Sans Serif font like Corbel or Monserrat.
