Speech bubble, thought bubble, text bubble
— whatever you call ‘em — add ‘em with Snappa


Choose from hundreds of speech bubbles

Click Graphics → Icons or Vectors → then search “speech bubble” or “thought bubble” to reveal hundreds of choices.

You’ll find speech bubbles that are round and rectangular, some that are shaped like clouds and other oddly shaped text bubbles, and some that are filled in with a color and others that aren’t. Whatever look you’re after, there’s a speech bubble to match.

Change the size of your text bubble and its fill color by choosing from our palette of popular colors or by playing with the color picker, and increase or decrease opacity until it's exactly what you envisioned.

Isn’t it annoying when you have the perfect image and the perfect speech bubble, but the mouth of the image’s subject and the speech bubble don’t line up?

With Snappa, you can flip any speech bubble in one click then rotate it until it lines up.
