How to make a pamphlet - Canva

Whether you’re creating a pamphlet to promote awareness about your community’s latest conservation project or to educate an audience, its design can be the difference between being noticed or collecting dust on a shelf. Canva can help you get your pamphlet design right and take it to the next level. In fact, they’ll look so good that you’ll never have to hire an expensive designer or have to worry about your pamphlets ending up in a bin again.

With Canva, you can customize and personalize your pamphlet as little or as much as you like with fonts, images and elements that suit the purpose. In minutes you can have an eye-catching pamphlet that makes your cause and subject something to remember.

  1. Open Canva

    Open up Canva and search for "Pamphlets" to create your own design.

  2. Choose a template

    In Canva’s library, you’ll find pamphlet templates for every theme. Find the best one for you by adding keywords that fit your choice of theme, style and color scheme. Simply click on the template to add it to your page.

Use custom imagery or professional and stunning stock photography

Your own professional images will look fantastic in a pamphlet designed with Canva, and if they’re not entirely up to scratch, no worries. You can still make a great impression by enhancing your imagery with our powerful and easy-to-use photo editing tools that can help you crop, filter and correct your images until they’re absolutely impeccable.

If you don’t have your own images, that’s no problem. Canva gives you access to an enormous library of over 1 million stock images, illustrations and design elements for your use. If any premium images or elements catch your eye, they only require a small cost, which means that no matter what your budget is, a perfectly designed pamphlet is always within reach.

Share and collaborate with colleagues and friends

Is designing your pamphlet a group effort? Or do you need to get feedback on your design? If you’re working in a team, you might want your colleagues or friends to see what you’ve achieved.

With Canva, even working with a team based in multiple time zones isn’t a problem. Canva’s simple-to-use platform makes it easy for you to collaborate and share your designs. All you really need to do is click the ‘Share’ button to email your design directly to a contact or send a link to whoever needs it. Want to share it on social media? Again, all it takes is a simple click of the ‘Share’ button to get your design out into the world.

Print your pamphlet in stunning high resolution

Once you’re done designing your pamphlet, it’s time to print and distribute it to the right audiences, mailboxes, community centres and more. All you need to do is click “Download” and choose “High quality PDF” to get a high-resolution file that’s ready for printing. The quality is so good that you can print your pamphlets at home, but if you want to send your file to a professional printer, it’s simple to do that too!


Leaflets are generally smaller than pamphlets, on a single page rather than folded, and printed on higher quality paper. They’re slightly more expensive and used to target a specific group to market a product or service. Pamphlets are meant to distribute information more widely and more cheaply.

Pamphlets are typically larger than leaflets and smaller than brochures. They include some images but are mostly informational, and so feature a lot of text. They are printed on one side or both sides, folded into multiple sections and printed on standard or high quality paper.

To make your pamphlet pop off the page, use vivid, high quality images and balance them with clear blocks of text. Use as much white space as possible. Keep your font size and style consistent throughout the pamphlet. Add recognizable graphics like social media icons and your brand logo.
