a clean and intimate painting-style presentation:
Canvas prints offer a clean presentation that focuses on the image itself without a frame decor or glass reflection. Compared to a framed print, the canvas print looks more like a painting, but preserve the rich colours, tonal depth, and fine details of a traditional photograph.
Print quality: all of our canvas prints are crafted to order, using premium quality, archival grade materials only. Pigment inks are used to print on heavy-weight canvas and a special laminate coating is applied for increased print durability, UV protection, and to reduce glare (the non-glare quality provides the most flexibility for different mounting locations without concern for light reflection). The coating also increases clarity and gives canvas an attractive satin finish.
Canvas wrapping: in order to keep the entire photograph visible, we print a mirror image onto each side of the frame. The mirror image forms the wrap at the side of the frame (no parts of the photograph are lost when the canvas print is wrapped around the stretcher bars). We can also print the edges black on special request.
Mounting: the printed canvas is gallery wrapped (stapled on reverse of frame with folded corners) onto a strong 40x40mm pine strainer frame. We use bevelled edge frames lined with aluminium barrier tape to protect canvas from acid / lignin burn, and stainless steel staples to extend longevity. Staples on the reverse are covered with framers tape for a clean presentation and stainless steel wire hanging fixtures are mounted on the inside of the frame.
Canvas print longevity: our canvas prints are rated at a 70+ year lifespan assuming they are treated well and kept out of direct sunlight.
Framed photographic print or canvas print - which one should I buy ?
It is a matter of individual taste and preference as to which one is best However, it is worth noting that for a given wall space you should generally choose the next larger size for a canvas print than you would for a framed print. The total size and cost is usually about the same, but you get a larger and more detailed image with the canvas print.
Format and sizes: our canvas prints are available in panoramic format as displayed in the gallery, in three standard sizes: small 24x10" (61x26cm), medium 36x15" (91x39cm), and large 45x19" (114x49cm):
