Whether you need some prints for a project or want to hang your favorite art on your wall, printing Etsy digital downloads can be easy.
There are several places you can go to print your digital downloads if you don’t have access to your printer at home, such as Staples, Vistaprint, Got Print and Zazzle. All of these places offer competitive prices and a variety of printing options, so you can get the prints that you need exactly the way you want them.
How to Know if a Product Has a Digital Download
If a product is listed as an “art print,” it’s most likely a digital file that you can download from the seller. The description will often list the file size and specifics of the artwork, so you can make sure it’s the right fit for your space.
When you’re shopping on Etsy, always check the “item details” tab to see if the product is a digital download or a physical item. Some sellers will also include a message section on the listing page, which is great for asking questions or getting in touch if you have any special requests.
How to Download a Digital File
If you buy a digital file from an Etsy artist, the file is usually sent to you as a JPG or PDF. These are both compressed files that can be sent to most printers without any problems.
Depending on the Etsy artist’s copyright, digital files can be used for commercial purposes as well, so be sure to read their description and terms carefully before buying. If you have any questions about the artist’s rights, just ask in the “Message Seller” box on the listing page and they’ll be happy to help.
