How to Add Hyperlink in Canva

Discover how to add clickable hyperlinks in Canva with this step by step tutorial

In our previous tutorial, I’ve discussed how to create an email signature from scratch in Canva. Now, we’re going to take that email signature and show you how to add hyperlinks to this document in Canva. A hyperlink is a word, phrase or image that you can click to bring you to a new page or a website.

You can add links to words, buttons and elements. Text hyperlinks are usually blue and underlined. Adding links to your Canva designs enable your readers to be redirected to a website while viewing your document.

Hey, did you know that Design Bundles offer FREE designs and FREE fonts? Some offers are available for a limited time only, so grab them while you can.

Step 1: Open your design

Step 4: Check links

To see whether or not your link is working, we can test it out before we save the document, go down to the two arrows to the bottom right which says Present whole screen. We can check if the link is redirecting where you want them to redirect.

Present whole screen

So if we click on the Design Bundle logo, it will open up Design Bundles' website in another window so we know that we linked it properly. We'll check each of the social media icons and see if it opens to Design Bundles' social accounts.
