Newsflash—Canva has hundreds of built-in fonts making it easier than ever to craft one-of-a kind projects with just a few clicks. (Not to mention the very easy ability to add your own fonts to Canva as well).

Before we get into the fonts, here’s a tip to create a realistic chalkboard-looking project on Canva:

What makes a great chalk-like font? It’s one that uses strokes and fills to create a smudgy, unpredictable pattern. Chalk-like fonts are great for back-to-school projects, party invitations, and more!

Use a dark background, such as black, or even a photo of a real chalkboard, and then choose white as the font color to overlay on top of the dark background. It’s the transparency of these fonts that will make a lasting visual impact on a dark background.
