HP Inc. recently announced a strategic multi-year global partnership with Canva, an 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.

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, and 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 catalog 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

“The announcement with Canva is a testament to HP’s commitment to partnerships of this magnitude. We’ve been incredibly impressed by the power of Canva Enterprise and look forward to boosting our team’s design productivity by removing bottlenecks that stifle creating visual content at scale,said Haim Levit, senior vice president and division president of HP Industrial Print.Combined with the latest innovations in HP software, we are leading the industry forward, allowing users to design and print more sustainably.”  

Canva is leading the way in empowering global teams to collaborate and create high-impact visual content at speed.  HP PrintOS will accelerate onboarding and ramp of new print volume to our integrated network of HP Print Service Providers, delivering the widest range of print to Canva users in every corner of the world,added Chris Knighton, Global Sales Director, HP Industrial Software.

Localized production for sustainable printing

The collaboration between HP and Canva also aligns with their shared commitment to sustainability. By promoting localized production, they aim to deliver high-quality design materials while reducing environmental impact.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
