Open the Kapwing Meme Generator


Kapwing's Meme Generator features more than a thousand meme templates with images, GIFs, and videos for you to get started with. Every meme template includes an example of how to use the meme and what kind of humor is usually associated with it. New templates are added to Kapwing every week to keep things fresh and help you make the best back to school meme possible.

Choose a Meme Template and Add Text

Once you've found a template you want to use, select it from the list and you'll see a screen that describes exactly how to make the meme and what jokes are often associated with the image or video. When you're ready to make your own version, click the blue Make It button to get started.    

Once inside the editor, you can click on the text box with the template example to start writing your own text for the back to school meme. If you want to change the font, size, or color of the text in your meme before finishing you can do this in the text customization menu on the right side of the screen.

Export and Share Your Meme

When you're happy with your meme and are ready to share it with your classroom or other teachers, click the red Export button at the top right of the screen. Your meme will process and become available immediately with no watermark as long as you are signed into your free Kapwing account.

Use the Download button on the right side of the screen or any of the social share buttons to spread the joy of back to school memes with everyone in your life.
