Hand Made Using Premium Materials
I’ve been printing and stretching canvas prints since 2006. In that time, every aspect of print has improved. The canvas – I use a brilliant white poly cotton canvas, it’s easy to work with and crucially doesn’t sag over time. The printing – I use a Professional 12 colour wide format printer made by Canon. Herbert (my printer) uses genuine Canon Lucia pigment inks which produce accurate, vibrant, fade resistant prints. The frames – I use kiln dried pine stretcher bars. Kiln drying is a process which sets the sap inside resinous woods like pine. It means your canvas prints are far less likely to warp. A word to the wise, never hang your canvas print above a radiator and where possible, out of direct sunlight.
Great Content Makes Fabulous Canvas Prints
Impressive phone cameras and free photo storage means we’re hoarding pictures which are compositionally more creative than ever before, but also more unlikely to ever see the light of day. It’s time to set those photos free, either as a single image canvas print or as a photo collage canvas print.
Whilst photos make great prints, I believe words do too. They say “a picture paints a thousand words”, but the right words can provoke dozens of memories, instantly change moods and give a visual reference as to how we want to live our lives. Any words, any font, any colour for anywhere.
Dealing With Your Canvas Print Edges
The appeal of a canvas print is the impact it makes without needing a frame. The image or artwork printed on the canvas is the sole focus as there is no surrounding frame. Your image is printed onto canvas and then stretched around a wooden frame, which sits proudly on the wall.
But what about the edges? You may be concerned about losing some of the image around the edge, or that the sides of the canvas will be left white. I don’t do that, in fact, I make sure the edges suit your photo and that you get the best result for your space. There are many ways of dealing with the edge of your canvas print, but the three below are the most popular and effective.
