PicMonkey’s print guides. For you stalwart DIYers printing at home (or testing a design that you plan to have printed elsewhere), PicMonkey has oodles of assistance to offer. First off, there’s our pixel-to-print-size conversion chart:

Pixel to Print Conversion Chart - Check out PicMonkey's Help Center for more print guide resources.

Plug those dimensions into your canvas and away you go!

But if you’re one of those people who learns by doing rather than by reading charts, PicMonkey also has a dedicated print guide page that displays all the conversions above, with a twist: when you click on your desired print dimensions, a presized canvas will open in our image editor. Nifty, right?
