Super Mario Bros. Print World is a Mario-themed printing program for home computers, allowing the player to print out artwork of various characters and elements from Super Mario Bros. 3 and Super Mario Land. It was developed by Hi Tech Expressions and released in the United States in 1991 for IBM and Tandy compatibles, as well as the Commodore 64 and Apple II. The title was only released in the United States; the MS-DOS version retailed for $19.99 and the Commodore 64 version retailed for $14.99.

Super Mario Bros. Print World is not a game, but a publishing application, with templates to make greeting cards, signs, posters, banners, and calendars, with a user guide on how to operate. The title is based on another Hi Tech Expressions title, Power Print, and has several variants based on themes other than Mario, including the NFL, Jim Henson's Muppets, The Addams Family, and Looney Tunes.
