Our canvas prints are produced on carefully selected, subtly textured canvas. Superb quality, vibrant colours - canvas prints atttractively mounted on gallery box pinewood frames from managed woodland. High Resolution - printing is done at superfine high resolution ensuring stunning quality and detail, whether from our photography collection or your own digital photo. Epson K3 UltraChrome inks - we use Epson K3 UltraChrome pigment printing inks, providing up to 75 years colour fastness and have the added advantage of water resistance when used with our canvas. This means that our canvas prints do not require an additional coating which tends to distort the final colour output and reduce the vibrancy of prints.
High quality cotton/polyester canvas, woven to produce a subtly textured finish. Our traditional canvas has been carefully selected to provide an excellent colour result whilst still providing a vibrant print finish. The cotton content of the material ensures natural texture and longevity whilst the polyester content enhances colour reproduction, giving a vibrant result.
Print photos onto canvas - beautifully framed and ready to hang!
All of our canvas prints are hand framed using deep gallery box (38mm depth) pinewood frames which have been environmentally ethically produced from European suppliers, using quality wood from managed woodland.
Our canvas is carefully stretched and stapled (not glued) with the canvas wrapping over the side of the frame. The high structural integrity of our wooden bars means that cross bars are not required, even on our largest sizes. Wedges are then placed into the corners of the inside frame. Should the natural cotton of the canvas stretch over time, these can be adjusted to re-tension the canvas artwork.
Your canvas prints will arrive ready to hang, complete with hook attachment on the centre back of the frame.
Mirror photo onto frame sides
Our most popular method of canvas framing. An attractive method of framing when you wish to retain all the elements of your photographic composition on the front of the canvas frame. Your photo is printed on the front of the canvas and then mirrored over the edges.
This creates a continuous blend of colour over the sides of the frame whilst retaining the entire composition of your image on the front of the framed print. Especially suited to panoramic canvas prints.
Wrap photo over frame sides
Suitable if there are areas of your image that you are happy to have wrapped over the side of the frame. Your photo is printed on the entire canvas. The printed canvas is then placed on the front of the frame and wrapped over the edges.
This gives the effect of the image continuing over the sides of the frame giving a continuous blend. This style is often suited to canvas photo prints from pictures that have areas around the edge of the composition that are not the main focus of the photo.
Natural canvas on frame sides
Sometimes the main elements of a composition are very close to the edge of the photo. In this event, it is preferable not to lose any of the image over the sides of the frame. To achieve this result, the photo is printed only on the front area of the canvas.
The print is then placed over the frame with the entire photo on the front and the sides left as plain white canvas. This style is often suited to the modern simplicity of square canvas prints.
