How to Customize our Canva Social Media Templates for Your Brand
There are dozens of Canva social media templates inside the Styled Stock Society library that our members can use on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter. This video tutorial walks you through how to upload your own brand fonts + colors and customize these Canva templates to create social media graphics for your brand.
***REMINDER: you must make a copy of each template to customize it for your account. If you edit the template directly, your work will not be saved when we restore the template link for Styled Stock Society member use.***
A few tips for customizing our Canva templates for your brand:
Change the template colors.
One quick way to customize our templates is to change the colors to fit your brand. You can easily change the colors of the fonts and/or other design elements like the colored overlays, borders, shapes, and buttons in each template. Here’s an example of one of our Instagram story templates and how it could be customized for a hot pink/turquoise brand.
Change the template fonts.
You can also change the template fonts to your brand fonts. Keeping fonts consistent across all your social channels will make it easier for people to recognize and remember your brand. In the example below, you’ll see how easy it is to swap out the colors AND fonts for a totally different style!
Change the opacity of the layers.
You can also play around with the opacity of the different colors and layers. In the example below, I first changed the image background, then changed the colored overlays, then changed the font colors, then changed the opacity of the colored overlays so that the white text was easier to read. Last but not least, I also added in sample screenshots of a content upgrade so you can see how it would look if you were promoting your own free download.
Those are just a few ways you can customize the Canva templates in our member library to better fit your brand, but the possibilities are endless. You could remove the borders of the colored overlays or change up the design to fit your needs. Our templates are just a starting point to make creating graphics for your business easier – but you can customize them as much (or as little) as you like!
