How do I compress my PDF?

When you publish and download a PDF file from Canva, it creates a high-quality print-ready file to be sent to a professional printer.

But depending on how many images you use in your design, your PDF file may be quite large in file size.

You can compress your PDF to reduce its file size using various apps and online tools, such as Small PDF.

Canva tip: If you are going to use the PDF for a printed project, do not compress it as it will reduce the quality of the print.
