How to Prepare Designs in Canva

We're seeing more designs being created in Canva, and that's great—Canva is much easier for many people than high-end alternatives like Adobe Illustrator and InDesign, and it provides great starting points and drag-and-drop simplicity for your projects.

Please do use Canva, if you desire, but it's important to follow some basic guidelines when preparing your design for printing:

  1. To print all the way to the edge, you need to have Canva include the bleed—an extra 1/8" on all sides that will get trimmed away. 
  2. We also need to have crop marks to show where the finished piece will be trimmed.
  3. ..CMYK
  4. ...high-resolution
