Step 1: Choose Your Coroplast Sign Template

Canva has a wide range of free templates for coroplast signs. Find one that matches the dimensions of your project, or use Canva Pro for access to the Magic Resize feature, which lets you create a custom canvas size and more (see next step).

At Little Rock Printing™, we can print coroplast signs with any of the following dimensions:

  • Width: 2”-96”
  • Length: 2”-48”

Once you’ve chosen a template that suits your needs, click “Customize this template” to start editing in Canva.

Step 2: Adjust Your Template Settings

Before diving into design elements, ensure your Canva settings are optimized for your project:

  • Access “File” > “View Settings” > “Show Rulers & Guides” for better alignment of design elements.
  • Use “Magic Resize” for custom dimensions if you need a non-standard size coroplast sign (Canva Pro feature).

For Best Results:

Consider upgrading to Canva Pro for more flexibility in sizing and design options. This is especially important if you want a coroplast sign with a custom shape.

Adding custom images to coroplast sign

Step 3: Add Custom Images to Your Coroplast Sign

Customize your template with your own images. Replace placeholder images by:

  • Deleting them (by clicking the Trash Can icon that appears when you mouse-over the image)
  • Using the “Elements” tab to find new images.
  • Uploading your images from your computer or cloud services.
  • Utilizing Canva’s “Magic Media” feature for AI-generated images.

For Best Results:

  • Ensure all raster images are high-resolution (300 dpi or higher).
  • Use vector images for scalability when possible.
  • Select images that complement your message and branding.
  • Display your logo or featured image prominently—it should be visible from a distance on the final product.

Step 4: Insert & Customize Text

Add and adjust text in your coroplast sign design:

  • Move or resize text blocks by clicking and dragging (drag corners to resize).
  • Use the “Text” tab for adding new text.
  • Canva’s “Magic Write” feature can assist in creating AI text content.

For Best Results

  • Keep text concise and to the point.
  • Ensure text is legible from a distance and not overcrowded.
  • Maintain a balanced layout—mix up text with images and white space instead of placing it all in one area.
Customizing fonts on coroplast sign in Canva

Step 5: Customize Fonts & Other Design Elements

Replace the fonts in your template with fonts that align with your brand. You can select from a wide range of fonts in Canva (and get extra options with Canva Pro).

Make sure the size of any fonts you use on your coroplast sign are legible from afar (216pt-432pt means your letters should be around 3”-6” high).

For Best Results

  • Stick to 2-3 font styles for consistency.
  • Choose contrasting colors for text and background.
