Poster Template Files

Using Canva

  • File type: PDF Print
  • Check the box next to “Crop marks and bleed”

If you’re using Canva to design your poster, make sure you download your poster using these settings:

NOTE ON COLOUR: To download your designs in the CMYK colour profile (which is optimal for printing), you’ll need a Canva Pro account. Don’t worry if you’re using the free version — we can still print your designs! Just keep in mind that your saved PDF will be in RGB, so the colours you see on screen might look a bit different on paper. For example, if you’re using super bright fluorescent colours, they could turn out more subdued in print.
