How to create your own template on canva in 5 easy steps

In my case, I’ll be creating a template for a blog banner. And here’s how I’m going to do it

Step 1: log in to your canva account

This very easy. Just use your registered email address and your password to log in. after login it will take you to the dashboard where you can find your recent graphics or (if your account is new) other pre-made templates.

Step 2: choose a blank template

Since we would be creating this template to be used next time or to be shared will take the time to edit it properly. Let’s design it properly. I’m going to use blue and add some basic designs in my own design

Step 3: Add your design

Take your time when doing this so that you can create a beautiful design. Also, because you won’t be doing it every time. You can use canva shapes, different elements and free images from canva to style your design for free.

Step 4: click on the share button and then

Once you are done creating your template on canva, just click on share at the top right of the page. Then click on template link below the big “copy link” button.

Lastly copy your template link. This template link can be shared with others and it would allow them use that same template without having to design it by themselves.

Here’s my own template link if you want to use my cool design

This template link will allow others to be able to edit and customize your designs. But if you want to others to just view it without being able to edit it. Canva has got you covered. You can share a “view only” link and that would prevent others from editing it.

Step 5: share your template

The last and final step is to share your newly created template with anyone you like

The reason why I love canva templates is that you can share it with others. Which means that, you don’t have to show people your account details for them to see or use your designs.
