How Do I Print a Poster in Canva?

Printing a poster in Canva is a great way to display your artwork or message to the public. The process is simple, and it doesn’t take much time to get your poster up on the wall. Here are the steps for printing a poster using Canva:

Step 1: Create your poster design in Canva. You can choose from hundreds of pre-made templates or create your own. When you’re done, save it as a PDF or print-ready file.

Step 2: Choose the size and paper type that you want to use for printing your poster. You can either print on standard size paper (letter, A4, etc.) or go bigger with custom sizes such as A3 or even larger sizes like A1 and A0.

Step 3: Select the quality of printing you want for your poster. Options include glossy, matte, and other finishes that provide different levels of vibrancy and durability.

Step 4: Upload your file to an online printing service such as Vistaprint or Moo, or send it directly to a local print shop for the best results.

Step 5: Wait for the order to arrive at your door (or pick it up from the store). Once you have it in hand, unpack it carefully and hang up your poster!


Printing posters with Canva is easy and affordable! With just a few clicks you can upload your design, choose a size and paper type, select the quality of printing, and upload it to an online printing service or local print shop. In no time at all you’ll have your beautiful poster ready to hang up.
