If you’ve ever found yourself needing to print a Pinterest board, you’ve likely discovered it isn’t as straightforward as you thought.

Pinterest is so much more than a place to gaze at pretty interiors and drool over tasty recipes. Many professionals use it as an integral part of their business. Meanwhile, non-pros use Pinterest as inspiration for fashion, home decor, fitness, travel and beyond!

From using Pinterest as a marketing tool, to creating mood boards, to planning a party – people just love to pin stuff. Myself most definitely included.

And sometimes us Pinterest users need to know how to print pictures from Pinterest. For work, for inspiration, for fun, for any reason! We may want to save a Pinterest board as a pdf, or print out a hardcopy for quick reference. (On recycled paper, of course.)


How to Print From Pinterest

It would be nice if all you had to do to print from Pinterest was click a button. But it actually takes a few more steps than that. And the steps you take vary depending which browser you use and whether you’re on a Mac or a PC.

But have no fear! Below, you’ll find step by step instructions for printing from Pinterest on a Mac or a PC (running Windows) using either Chrome, Safari or Firefox

These instructions also apply if you simply want to know how to download a Pinterest board and save it to you computer.

If you’d prefer to watch a video showing you how to print from Pinterest – I made one of those too!

How to Print a Pinterest Board using a Mac (with Chrome)

Go to Pinterest

First, login to your Pinterest account and open the board you would like to print. For example, I’ve chosen my Modern Boho Living Room design board.

Arrange Files

Open the saved folder and arrange the files by type. The jpg images are all of the board’s pins. Delete any file that is not a jpg. You may also want to delete your Pinterest profile image, unless you’d like it to stay for branding purposes.

Want to know how to print a Pinterest board? Here are step-by-step instructions on how to do so - on a Mac and a PC!

Print

Go to File -> Print. Select Scale to Fit and switch where it says Preview to Layout. Where it says Pages Per Sheet, select how many pins you want to show per page. 

If you want them all on one page, you’ll need to have 16 pins or less. If you have a smaller amount of pins, or you want them to print at a bigger scale, you can choose a smaller number such as 6 or 9.

Print or save as a pdf and you’re done!

You’ll have several layout options to choose from. Note that if you choose the layout with the most amount of pins per page – which is 35 – the file names will also print out, and that doesn’t look very nice.

The next best option is 9 pins per page. Keep in mind if you have more than 9 pins in your board you’ll be printing out more than one page.

        this isn’t working for me. I’m on a Mac tried with Safari then downloaded Chrome to try there. When I get to Preview , View, Contact sheet the pins are on individual pages. I cannot resize nor move them to one page

          Hi Joanne – thanks for commenting. Using Chrome or Safari shouldn’t matter at this step as all the images should already be downloaded to your desktop. Did you select all the images in the folder and then double-click to open them in the same Preview window? They have to be open in the same window to view them on a single contact sheet. If this doesn’t help, feel free to shoot a quick video of you demonstrating your issue and then post a link to the video here in the comments. I’ll try my best to help you figure this out!

      Which step are you getting stuck at? Did you get all the images saved to a folder and now you just need to select and open them? Also, are you using Chrome or Safari?

    Don’t waste your time. The Relevant stuff starts at min 6:38. Everything before that is how to use pinterest etc.

      Yes – that’s exactly why I noted at both the top of the post and right before the video to skip to 6:18 if you only want to learn how to print a Pinterest board. My post and video are about both creating a design board and printing it, which is why there’s extra information. Not a waste of time for people who want to learn to do both. Thanks for commenting though!

    Any idea why all of the images from my board arent populating when i “save page as”? I have 112 pins and only 40 of them are in the folder to print.

    Aside from this issue, everything else works.

      Hello! It took me a minute, but I figured out the issue. It seems that when you “Save Page As” only the board images that are currently showing on the page get saved. What I did was zoom out. I did it using Chrome on a Mac and simply hit Command and the – button until it had zoomed out so all the pins in my board fit on the page. Then when I saved the page again all the images where in the folder. I hope this helps!

    Hiya, how do you make the images larger on a Mac? Thanks in advance

      Hi Jackie – when you go to print your images and select Layout and your # of images, Preview basically divides the page up equally between each image. So if you have 16 images like in my example, there would be 16 small images. If you want larger images then I’d suggest putting less on each page. For example, if you only put 4 on a page they’d each take up 25% of the page. Hope that makes sense! Let me know if it doesn’t work 🙂
