How Do I Make Borders Thinner in Canva?

Adding borders to your design is a great way to make it stand out, but sometimes they can be too heavy and overpower the rest of the design. This is especially true when you are creating designs for social media or webpages. Fortunately, Canva makes it easy to customize your borders and make them thinner without sacrificing any of their impact.

The first step in making border thinner in Canva is to select the element you want to add a border to. Click on it with your mouse, then go up to the top toolbar and click on “Stroke”. This will open a window where you can adjust the stroke width, color, and other options.

When you have this window open, use the slider at the top to adjust the stroke width. Moving the slider all the way to the left will make your border as thin as possible, while moving it all the way to the right will make it as thick as possible. Experiment with different settings until you find one that looks good for your design.

You can also use other options in this window to customize your border even further. You can choose from various types of line styles such as dashed or dotted lines, or you can choose from different colors and shades. If you want an extra creative touch, try adding a gradient effect for a unique look.

Once you have finished customizing your border, click on “Apply” at the bottom of this window and then save your design. Your thinner border will now be part of your design.

In conclusion, making borders thinner in Canva is an easy process that doesn’t require any special knowledge or skills. All you need is access to Canva’s “Stroke” menu and some basic knowledge about how sliders work so that you can adjust your border width accordingly. With just a few clicks of your mouse, you can create beautiful designs with thin borders that won’t overpower any other elements in your design.
