While MailChimp doesn't include a function that allows you to save a sent campaign as a PDF, you can use an option in your browser to save your campaign's archive page as a PDF. View this PDF offline, or use it to print copies of your campaign.

Chrome and Firefox are two of the easiest browsers to use to create a PDF on Windows or Mac operating systems. Make sure you have the most recent version of these browsers before getting started. If you use a different browser and cannot download Chrome or Firefox, search for information specific to saving a webpage as a PDF for your system and browser.

Below, you'll learn how to access the campaign archive page and save the page as a PDF from Chrome or Firefox.
