What is a Photo Canvas Print -  Photo to Canvas


A canvas photo print / canvas print  is the result of an image printed onto canvas which is stretched, or gallery-wrapped, over a frame and displayed to be enjoyed and shared. Canvas photo prints are often used in interior design, with stock images, or with easy access to computers, tablets or even mobile phones, along with the rise and advancements in camera technology, customised photo canvas prints with personal photographs have become  very popular. Canvas prints are intended to reproduce the look of original oil or acrylic paintings on stretched canvas. They are a unique way to add character to any home or commericial  design. 




Printing methods

Reproductions of original artwork have been printed on canvas for

many decades using offset printing. Since the 1990s, photo canvas

prints have been associated with either dye sublimation or inkjet

print processes (often referred to as repligraph or giclée respectively).

The photo canvas print material is generally a photo canvas cotton or

plastic based poly photo canvas, often used for the reproduction of

photographic images. uses the leading 12 colour large format printers to produce

our photo canvases. We are capable of printing onto photo canvas rolls

measuring 1.2 metres. Our canon photo printers are the best on the

market giving amazing colour reproduction.  We can print onto Photo

                                                      Canvas material, Photographic paper, Poster Paper, or even self Adhesive                                                           Vinyl. 

                                                      Our Photo Canvas Prints for wall art is generally of a weight around 350 gsm                                                       and we can use as an option, 100% pure white cotton for a more exact                                                                   colour representation.


                                                      Construction methods

                                                      After the image is printed, the photo canvas is allowed to 'cure' to allow for                                                         the ink to fully adhere to the photo canvas

material. This will also allow time for any degassing. Then we trim the

canvas photo to size and stapled it to traditional stretcher bars. We offer

two sizes depths in our stretcher bars. 18mm most suitable of our 12" and 18"

photo canvas prints on the polyester photo canvas material, and 38mm bars

for our larger photo canvas prints. The frames are constructed from solid

pine, kiln dried to remove any moisture to avoid any future warping. The

photo canvas  print is then wrapped round the edges of a stretcher frame,

gallery-wrapped. This can be used to enhance the three-dimensional

effect of the canvas photo print.


                                                           All our photo canvas prints are tapped at the
