Order prints

Ready to send your design to print? We are as excited as you are to see your designs come to life.

Canva continuously strives to provide you with the best design tool available through our easy-to-use web app. To complete your design experience, we’ve introduced the Order prints feature which enables you to choose print options, select size and quantity of prints, and easily pay for your order at the best possible price. High-quality prints are delivered to your doorstep in no time.

There are two stages involved before you can send your design to production. Learn how to go about the stages and understand what goes on before your final order runs to print.

Design Proof

Before any artwork gets printed, it is best practice to proof your file to ensure all elements in your design appear as anticipated. This stage guides you through the process of ensuring your design will print the way you created it. It involves checking the resolution of the images as well as the correct placement of text and other elements in the design. The design still remains editable at this stage.

Here’s how to go about this process:

1. Click the Order prints button and select your product specifications, then click the Begin Order button.

2. The image resolution checker will appear. Images that fill your entire design must be at least 1024 pixels x 768 pixels. Other images should be as high resolution as possible.

3. Check the bleed area of your design. Make sure your design extends all the way to the pink bleed line to prevent unwanted white lines or gaps appearing in your final printed product.If your design is in place, click Next.

4.  Check the safe area of your design. Make sure important elements are inside the pink safe area line as they may be cut off when printed. If important elements are safe, click Next.
