Why You Shouldn't Use Canva to Create a Professional Logo

Canva is a great tool for creating graphics and marketing materials, but it's not the best choice for creating a professional logo. Here are a few reasons why:


  • Canva logos are not trademarked. Canva's terms of service state that you cannot use their templates or elements to create a logo that you intend to trademark. This means that if you create a logo in Canva and then try to trademark it, you may be denied because it is not original.
  • Canva templates can be limiting. Canva offers a wide variety of templates to choose from, but they can also be limiting in terms of creativity. If you want a logo that is truly unique and reflects your brand, you'll need to work with a professional designer who can create something custom for you.
  • Canva logos are not always professional-looking. While Canva can be used to create some decent logos, it's not always the best choice for businesses that want a truly professional look. If you want a logo that will make a good impression on potential customers, you're better off working with a professional designer.
  • Canva logos are not scalable! When you create a logo in Canva, it is saved as a raster image. This means that it will lose quality when it is resized, making it unsuitable for use on large-scale marketing materials or print products. A professional logo, on the other hand, will be saved as a vector image, which can be scaled to any size without losing quality.

If you're serious about creating a professional logo for your business, I recommend hiring a professional designer. They will be able to create a logo that is unique, scalable, and trademarked, and they will help you to ensure that it reflects your brand in the best possible way.


Here are a few tips for finding a good logo designer:

  • Ask for recommendations from friends, family, or colleagues.
  • Look for designers who have experience in your industry.
  • Be clear about your budget and your expectations.
  • Work with a designer who is willing to collaborate with you to create a logo that you love.


Creating a professional logo is an important investment for your business. By working with a professional designer, you can be sure that you're getting a logo that will help you to achieve your branding goals.
