HP and Canva Announce Partnership

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 28, 2024 – HP Inc. today announced a strategic multi-year global partnership with Canva, the world’s only all-in-one visual communication platform, to empower millions of Canva users worldwide to seamlessly design online, create visual content, and print locally.

The collaboration between HP and Canva aims to benefit both HP Print Service Providers (PSPs) and the Canva community worldwide, enabling anyone creating visual content on the Canva platform to seamlessly design and print within a fully integrated system. This multi-year deal will enable Canva users to design anything and print anywhere without compromising quality and authenticity.

“This partnership will deliver huge strategic value and fuel customer growth across both organizations,” said Cliff Obrecht, Canva co-founder and Chief Operating Officer.

Canva, founded in 2013, has over 185 million monthly users, including 95 percent of the Fortune 500. The launch of Canva Print in 2017 has allowed users to design and print a wide range of products—from business cards, brochures, flyers, stickers, marketing collateral, with customization options, and even apparel – experiencing exponential growth with millions of orders annually.

Through this collaboration, the Canva community will gain expanded access to professionally printed products from HP PSPs across the globe. Canva aims to expand its print service to 150 countries by 2026, enabling shorter turnaround times and significantly reducing its carbon footprint through localized operations.  

Canva Extends Reach with HP Automation Software and Global Print Service Provider Network

HP’s market-leading automation software, HP PrintOS Site Flow, will help Canva extend its reach by automating production and shipping processes for PSPs. This end-to-end solution streamlines print jobs with auto-scheduling, delivering color consistency, security, barcode tracking, optimal productivity. Additionally, HP’s expansion of its PrintOS Suite with new features will equip the Canva Print Operations team with powerful tools to identify, connect and manage a global SKU catalogue across HP-enabled PSPs.

“We’re excited to partner with HP to accelerate the expansion of Canva Print. HP’s innovations in cloud software, quality management, and digital print have been at the center of our Canva Print expansion,” said Jim Towle, Head of Print and Partnerships, Canva. “With our teams working closely on new products and additional PSP locations, we can expand our world-class print capabilities and make it easier than ever for our global community to bring their designs to life.”

Canva Enterprise Empowers HP to Communicate Visually at Scale

Earlier this month, Canva launched Canva Enterprise, a new subscription option to cater to the growing demand from large organizations. With businesses worldwide facing the need to be more efficient and innovative, there has been an increase in demand for visual communication platforms that allow easy collaboration and interoperability. As part of the agreement, HP will implement Canva Enterprise, empowering HP’s global marketing and sales teams to securely create, collaborate, and publish visual content.
