Are Canva Images Print Ready?

Last updated on December 4, 2022 @ 10:10 pm

Yes, all images on Canva are print ready. Simply download your design as a PDF or JPG file and send it off to your local printer. For the highest quality results, we recommend using Canva’s PDF printing

For PDF printing, we recommend the following settings:

  • Papersize: A4 or Letter
  • Orientation: Landscape
  • Resolution: 300 DPI

With these settings, you’ll be able to print your design at its full potential.

To change these settings:

  1. Click on “Download,” then “PDF” on the left-hand side panel.
  2. A pop-up window will appear. Here, select “Print” under the “Intended Use” dropdown menu.
  3. Click on “Download,” then “More options”
  4. (For PDF) Select “Print” under the “Intended Use” dropdown menu.
  5. (For JPG) Set the output resolution to 300 DPI.
  6. (For both file types) Set the dimensions to match your selected paper size.

Once you’ve selected your preferred settings, click on “Download PDF” or “Download JPG” and your file will begin downloading automatically.

PRO TIP: Canva images are not print ready. The resolution is too low and the colors will not be accurate.
