But first, you need to get the newsletters in a printable form by using your web browser.

In order to do that, you need to open the archived version of your campaign first.

Step 1. Opening Your Archived Mailchimp Campaign

To open an archived version of your sent Mailchimp newsletters:

  • Log in to your Mailchimp account.
  • Click on the “Campaigns” tab.
  • Click on “All campaigns”.
  • Choose the campaign you want to print and click on it.
  • Click on “View email”.
  • Click on “Past Issues” near the top of the screen.

You will now see a list of all your sent campaigns, including the one you selected.

Before you move on to the printing process, you need to turn the Archive Bar off and remove the webpage header and footer.

Step 2. Turning Off The Archive Bar And Headers

Mailchimp automatically adds an Archive Bar on top of all archived email campaigns to make it easier for subscribers to translate and view campaigns sent to them.

Follow the steps below to turn off the Archive Bar:

  • Click “Audience”.
  • Click “Audience dashboard”.
  • In case you have multiple audiences, click Current audience and choose the one you want from the the drop-down
  • Click “Manage Audience” and choose “Settings” from the drop-down.

You can turn it back on when you are done with the printing.

Step 3. Removing Webpage Header and Footer

Most web browsers will add a header and footer to your newsletter email to show the website address and name, and the date you accessed the page.

You can disable the header and footer when you set your print and save settings (more on this in a moment).
