Here's a Step by Step guide to consider when designing from scratch in Canva. 

  1. Choose your dimensions - you can see in the images below all artwork for badges needs to have a bleed so that the edge of your badge is not left white. You can see more detail on badge bleeds here and below.
  2. Choose your background colours or photo - making sure there's enough to cover the bleed.
  3. Add your elements - it might be your logo, your message, a single word. Hint: Keep It Simple.
  4. Choose the right font - is it in line with your brand? Or if your badge is for fun - do you like the font you have chosen? Is it easy to read, does your message stand out?
