How To Print Cards In Jira

Jira, a widely used project management tool designed by Atlassian, is highly regarded for its ability to keep track of tasks and projects. A key function of this tool is the option to print cards. While this may seem outdated in our digitally-driven world, physical cards can be beneficial during stand-up meetings, brainstorming sessions, or when visualizing workflow on a physical board.

Unfortunately, Jira doesn’t support card printing out-of-the-box. However, there are several workarounds that can help you achieve this. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to print cards in Jira.

Using Browser’s Print Function

One of the simplest ways to print Jira cards is by using the print function of your web browser. Here’s how:

  1. Open your Jira board and select the cards you want to print.
  2. Right-click on the page and select Print.
  3. In the print preview window, adjust the settings to your preference and click Print.

Using Agile Cards Plugin

For more flexibility and customization, you can use the Agile Cards plugin from Spartez. Here are the steps:

  1. In your Jira board, select the cards you want to print.
  2. Click on the ‘…’ button on the top right of the screen.
  3. From the dropdown menu, select Agile Cards.
  4. Choose your desired template and click Print.

Note that you need to install the Agile Cards plugin first. To do this, navigate to Settings > Manage Apps > Find new Apps, then search for ‘Agile Cards’ and install it.

Using Jira Cloud

If you’re using Jira Cloud, you can print cards directly from the issue navigator. Here’s how:

  1. Navigate to the issue navigator by clicking on Issues and filters in the sidebar.
  2. Select the issues you want to print and click on Export.
  3. Choose the Print option from the dropdown menu.

Remember, the ability to print directly from Jira is limited to the Cloud version. It is not available in the Server or Data Center editions.


While Jira doesn’t have a built-in option for printing cards, there are several workarounds that can meet your needs. Whether you choose to use your browser’s print function, the Agile Cards plugin, or Jira Cloud, printing cards in Jira is a cinch once you know what steps to follow. Happy printing!
