Good job! You know now how to flip text in Canva and how to mirror. But if not you can always check other posts. Feel free to take a look in the FAQ section for questions.


Can I Flip only a part of the text while keeping the rest as it is?

Yes, you could do that but it would take some time. Canva has no official built-in feature to flip texts so flipping specific words or letters would even take longer than just flipping a whole text but it’s not impossible. Let’s say you want to flip a letter or a word in your text Just make a new canvas add your letter or word to the canvas and download it like you did in step 2. After you download it upload it back to Canva like you did in Step 3. Now remove the original letter or word replace it with the downloaded one and flip it. repeat this process till you are done.

Is there a free way to flip text in Canva?

There is another way that looks a bit like flipping a text it’s called rotating. If you rotate your text it will also flip. But if you rotate the position of the letters will also change. Let’s say you rotate the word awesome If you rotate the word awesome the last letter a and the last letter e will switch from position. But if you still want to give it a try this is what you need to do. Select your text and select the circle with the 2 arrows in it that are following each other. it should be located somewhere under your text move the circle to 180% to get the flip.

How can I mirror my text?

Mirroring your text can look super clean but only if you do it right. To mirror a text you need to download the text that you want to mirror like you did in step 2. After downloading it you need to place the text under the original text and place it symmetrical under the original text to get the best mirror look. Now select the image text and flip it vertically. To finish the mirror look you need to adjust the transparency of the text image. To do this select the image text and click on transparency up on your screen. I will not give you a specific number just choose what fits you best.

Should I buy Canva Pro to flip my text?

It really depends on yourself Actually I mean yeah Canva Pro is great but is it great enough for you? Well in my opinion every Canva user should give Canva Pro a try I mean it’s only 11,99$ monthly. Or to get the best out of Canva Pro you can also buy their yearly subscription that comes with 109,99$ and you can save 33%. Apart from the prices, you can flip a text but believe you can do way more than just flip a text. You get access to the remove background feature, magic eraser, coolest text styles, and way more. It’s really up to you maybe try the free trial if you’re not sure.

Final Thoughts

Before I made this post I thought to myself why would you want your text to be flipped I mean a flipped text is pretty hard to read but after doing more research on it I saw what you can do with it. It’s just so useful you can mirror text and way more. But maybe the only downside for you is that you need to buy Canva Pro well a downside in my opinion Canva Pro is amazing.
