If you need some help creating graphics for your content, connect with Canva to import designs directly into Mailchimp's content studio.
In this article, you'll learn how to connect, disconnect, and use the Canva integration.
Before you start
Here are some things to know before you begin this process.
- To access the features of this integration, you’ll need to have a Canva account.
- If you use this integration with a free Canva account, there may be some design templates you cannot access.
How it works
When you finish designing a template in Canva, you can pass your finished design directly into Mailchimp. Your design will import into Mailchimp as a .JPG image so you can access it in the content studio. Then, use this design in your emails, website, social posts, ads, and other Mailchimp features.
To connect a Canva account to Mailchimp, follow these steps.
- Log into your Canva account.
- Click on any design template to visit the template editor.
- In the template editor, click on the Download drop-down and scroll to the Mailchimp integration. This drop-down may be labeled Print depending on the design you choose.
- Click the Connect Mailchimp button.
- Enter your Mailchimp login credentials and click Log In.
After you log in, you’ll be directed back to the Canva app.
You’re all set! Now you can import your designs from Canva directly into Mailchimp’s Content Studio.
