How To Save a Design As EPS on Canva

Save Canva Design as EPS

It is important to convert the design to EPS format for scalability and compatibility across various applications. The reason behind this is its ability to support transparent backgrounds and embed fonts, making it a print industry standard.

While Canva is capable of saving designs in multiple formats, unfortunately, there isn’t a way to save the design as EPS. In this guide, we will walk guide you through a walk around, and here are steps for it:

Save Canva Design as EPS: Getting Started

  1. Start by navigating to Canva and sign in with your credentials. Next, open the project you’re working on from the Recent designs. Before proceeding further, ensure the design you’re working with can be saved as a PDF.
Recent design
  1. If you aren’t sure or haven’t started working on a project, create a new one by clicking on the Create a design button on the home screen. However, if you have specific requirements in mind, click on Custom Size and create a custom design that matches your requirements.

  1. Once the new/existing design is loaded, start working on the design. For assistance, use the available free/paid templates from the Designs tab present on the Editor panel.

  2. Once the webpage is loaded, click on Select File and upload the PDF file downloaded from Canva to the tool.

  1. After the PDF file is uploaded to the tool and the name is displayed as a preview, click on the Convert button.

While the online PDF to EPS converter tool works as promised, if you’re worried about privacy or not happy with the result, use Adobe Illustrator or other conventional tools that are capable of managing and modifying designs.
