Are Canva Pro Elements Free for Commercial Use?

The answer is both yes and no. While Canva Pro Elements are free to use, they must be used in accordance with certain terms and conditions.

Canva Pro Elements are available for free, but they should not be used for commercial purposes. For example, you cannot use a Canva Pro Element in a logo or any other branding material. This includes advertisements, websites, and videos.

You also cannot sell or redistribute the Canva Pro Element itself. It is important to note that while the element is free to use, you still need to get permission from the copyright holder if you wish to modify it in any way.

Canva Pro Elements can be used for personal projects such as digital art and design projects for yourself or your friends. They can also be used for educational purposes such as in classes or lectures. If you plan on using them commercially, however, then you need to purchase a license from Canva first.

It is important to remember that all Canva Pro Elements are subject to copyright laws. If you are unsure whether your use of the element is considered “fair use” then it is best to consult an attorney before proceeding.


In conclusion, while Canva Pro Elements are available for free, they should not be used for commercial purposes without first purchasing a license from Canva. All uses of the elements must abide by copyright laws and any modifications must have permission from the copyright holder.
