When you create a campaign in MailChimp, it's saved and stored as an HTML file. If you want to convert it to PDF or print a copy, you can do that from the campaign archive page by clicking on the view in browser link in the email.

Below are a few tips for converting an HTML file to PDF on different operating systems and browsers. For more detailed information, we recommend checking out the links below or searching for information about your particular system.
