If you want your family members to make changes to the design, check the ‘can edit’ box, otherwise check the ‘can comment’ done. Once you share the design, your family members will be able to access it from their Canva account.

Print your announcement or share it online

Print the baby announcement to mail it to all your acquaintances. Download the design in the PDF-Print recommended format which gives a 300 DPI (Dots Per Inch) print quality ensuring your baby’s pictures look just as vibrant on paper.

Designing an announcement at the last minute? Don’t worry because Canva allows you to share your baby announcement directly on Facebook and Twitter. You can also download the design in JPG or PNG format and send it through messaging apps like WhatsApp and Viber.


Are there any hidden costs for designing a poster on Canva?

Absolutely not! Designing on Canva is free, no matter what you want to design or how many times you need to edit it. You are only charged when you use a paid element from Canva’s media library and even that is conveniently priced at $1 for each one-time use.

Can I change the font of my baby announcement?

Of course! Canva has over 130 fresh fonts for you. There are also pre-designed font combinations and typography that you can use to add information about your baby’s birthdate and weight.

Are there any print limitations?

If you have only used your own images or free images from Canva’s media library, then there are no print limitations. In case you have used paid elements from the media library, then there is a limitation of 2000 prints. Although, that can be easily removed by opting for extended use or multi-use license.
