What makes the best Canvas Prints?
Printed on our Epson 9900 – The Epson 9900 has amazing print quality and produces supreme colour and gallery quality black and white prints.
Genuine Epson Ultrachrome Inks – All prints are produced with genuine Epson Ultrachrome inks, they are a superb water resistant Epson pigment ink with excellent durability and extremely high archivability.
Genuine Giclee Professional Edition Canvas – Inkjet PRO Premium Edition is a bright white 400gsm product with excellent water resistance and stretching qualities for fine art and photographic work.
UV Protective Coating – To make the finish even stronger, each canvas is sprayed with a UV protective, satin liquid laminate which finishes off the surface beautifully and makes the canvas easy to clean.
Hand Stretched – Canvas photo prints are stretched by hand – not machine! This enables us to do a wide range of canvas effects for you. It also means our quality control is second to none.
Archival Quality – With these quality materials coupled with our UV protective coating, our canvas prints have an archival life of 100 years!
Stretcher Bars – Canvas Thickness
Canvas prints are offered in three different stretcher bars:
- Standard Wrap (18mm thick)
- Gallery Wrap (28mm thick)
- Exhibition Wrap (38mm thick).
We can also supply you your canvas as ‘Print Only’ which means it will come rolled in a tube and not stretched.
Canvas Edge Effects
We offer multiple options for edge effects on canvas because sometimes you don’t want to loose any of your image from the face of the canvas.
Image Wrap – This is the traditional default method where the canvas is printed 1-2 inches per side larger than the face of the canvas so the image wraps around the edges.
Mirror Border – A mirror border is where the inside perimeter of the image is copied and mirrored onto an extra 1-2 inch border so this wraps around the canvas edge giving the image continuity without loosing any important information from the face. *This wrap is not ideal for images with body parts close to the edge of the print.
Colour Border – A colour border lets you select a specific colour (or we can pick one for you) to add to the edges of your canvas. This will not be seen on the face of the canvas, just the sides.
Digital Stretch Border – A few pixels are sampled from the edge of your image and stretched to created a continuous a unique stretch effect on the side of the canvas.
Framed Canvas Prints
The perfect way to finish off a canvas print! We can frame a stretched canvas with a floating frame or mount the canvas to MDF and frame it to the edge. There are so many possibilities when it comes to framing your photographs. Talk to one of our friendly staff and they will happily offer advice if needed and provide you with a quote.
