Your stories by Canva

Social media stories, without a doubt, are some of the most used features on popular platforms like Facebook and Instagram. Although stories are temporary, this type of content is an effective way to engage your audience and improve your personal or brand visibility. But with millions of users maximizing the feature, getting yourself noticed can be quite a challenge.

Not with Canva, though. You can create your stories using free story templates designed by professionals. Whether you want to post a promo announcement or a fun, playful quiz for your followers, Canva will help you curate the most beautiful and engaging social media story ideas for your business or personal account.

To get started, browse our library and check out thousands of design ideas for your stories. From simple to quirky or neutral to colorful, we have every design you need. Pick a template for your story and start editing the background with a solid color, gradient, or textured pattern. Next, upload your photos or select from countless stock images in our library. You can also opt for videos if you want your story to be more dynamic.

Use our text editor tool to put captions. We have thousands of font styles to choose from, so you won’t have a hard time mixing and matching. If you want your story to look unique, add photo effects or animate the text. Canva also has thousands of graphic elements that you can use for your stories, such as icons, illustrations, and vectors. All you have to do is drag and drop everything you need onto your template. Designing is that easy with Canva.

When you’re done editing your story template, save and download it as an image or MP4 file. You only have 24 hours to make a good impression on your stories. Create your stories on Canva, and you’ll surely impress your followers.
