Gelato prints locally, near the customer, and thus greatly reduces the shipping times. We’re super quick now, and can advertise with that too.

We’re looking forward to introducing our Canva Print services to more people around the world. Thanks to this collaboration with Gelato, our amazing design community in Japan, South Korea, Russia, US and Brazil will be able to design anything on Canva, and then have them professionally printed and delivered straight to their doorsteps with the help of the Gelato team. More importantly, we’re incredibly excited to share the same approach when it comes to protecting our environment.

Canva and Gelato are both aligned on sustainable printing and packaging, with a joint mission to produce superior quality print orders with environmental and social responsibility in mind. We look forward to enabling Canva Print into other countries and continents in 2020 through the Gelato network.

A Developer first Print on demand API to easily manage high-frequency print production globally in 100+ countries

We believe that global print on demand is a problem rooted in code, not just print houses. We obsessively seek out elegant, composable abstractions that enable robust, scalable, flexible integrations. You will find our documentation simple and easy to follow. This is why you can get integrated with Gelato in a matter of hours not weeks.
