New This Week: The Roll Out of Canva Text Effects

Hello Canva lovers! Boy have I got some great news for you. I am absolutely delighted to tell you about the official release of some new Canva text effects!

Now before you get too excited, I have to set your expectations and inform you, that no, curved text is not one of the effects that has been released yet.
No need to contact Canva with that suggestion, they already get that request every single day.

So with that aside what are…

The New Canva Text Effects options.

Well there are – shadow, lift, hollow, splice, echo, neon, and glitch. Most can be seen here in this quick video I just threw together for you!

So let’s look at these individually.


First on your list of Canva Text Effects list is the Shadow effect. This is a great effect – to be used sparingly to capture some attention.

The lift effect is a very subtle effect that you can use to give a bit of a rise as it were.

The next type of Canva Text effects you find is hollow which I really love.

How cool is splice? It’s a wee bit funky isn’t it?

I think my fave might be Echo. It’s simple and maybe a little bit retro. I am not sure but I really dig this font effect.

From what I’ve shared online – Neon seems to be the firm fave amongst my network and community. I do love it too.
