Getting Your Canva Design Print Ready

If you’ve never designed your own promotional art, it can be a daunting task. Some people use Canva to create and finalise their art before having it expertly printed. Canva is a simple-to-use, free graphic design software that will turn out professional quality work even for beginners. You can use Canva to design brochures, booklets, posters, custom notepads and an entire range of other personalised products for your company. For all your professional printing in Melbourne, Minuteman Press Spencer Street will work with you to create the exact promotional pieces you need for your business. Here are some helpful tips for making sure your work created with Canva is print ready before sending it to us at Minuteman Press Spencer Street.

Getting Your Canva Design Print Ready

Getting the Right Print Quality

Once you’ve created the design you like, it pays to take the extra time to ensure you’ll have the highest quality results. Getting professional quality print materials all depends on having the right file format. Select the PDF-Print file format to download your file at 300 Dots per Inch, or DPI. JPG and PNG file formats are fine if you’re using strictly web design, but for printing you’ll want a higher quality format.

Canva downloads design using the common RGB colour profile. It’s one of the most common one used by digital printers, and will give your work the pop of colour it deserves.

Downloading and Printing Your Design

Whether you’re planning to send a digital copy to Minuteman Press Spencer Street, or you want to hand deliver a USB example of the work, you’ll begin by downloading your design. Once the design is ready for production, click on Download, select PDF Print, and then click on the green Download button. The design will automatically download onto your computer.

To print out a paper copy of your design, open the PDF document and click on the little printer icon in the upper left corner of the screen. Choose your printer type, adjust the printer settings to 100%, and then click print.

Troubleshooting Your Design

If you’re not happy with the final product, or you’re having problems getting a copy printed, try these steps:

  • Make sure you’re downloading the PDF: for print file type
  • Look to see that the file name doesn’t have any full stops or special characters in it
  • Try doubling the dimensions of your design to make it bigger and clearer
  • If you’re still unhappy with your example, contact our professional design staff for advice in getting the look you need
