Part of the MyPaint FAQ.

How do I print the work I created using MyPaint?

As of August 2015, there is no "Print" functionality in MyPaint, so you will have to use another application. For instance GIMP, or a image viewer with printing functionality.

Why does not MyPaint have printing functionality?

Creating a good print dialog is a lot of work. And since not that many use printing, and it is very easy to use another application for this operation we do not see a good reason to implement this. People also like to do post-processing before printing, and might expect things to be color managed, all things we do not plan to support in the short term. Better to focus on the drawing/painting part of our painting application. ;)
