Custom Canvas Print
2 Canvas Printing Options to Choose FromAs early as the renaissance era, people had already admired canvas artworks. Canvas artworks have a classier and more elegant appearance than what any photo or poster paper can offer. Their beauty alone makes these pieces timeless. It wasn't long ago when only rich nobles can possess oil paintings. But that was before. Luckily, today, almost anyone could have their own piece, thanks to custom canvas prints.
Custom canvas prints could be a good substitute for their painting counterparts. They could be made into any style you want. They are way less expensive but are of high quality nonetheless. Photos, artworks, images or even characters are printed on a strong, unbleached linen, hemp or cotton fabric. Water-based inks are even used to make the prints look sharper and more durable.
There are two common types of custom canvas prints: stretched and rolled. They are basically printed using the same ink and cloth; the difference lies in how they would be displayed.
Stretched Canvas Prints
Stretched canvas prints are literally extended to wrap around wooden frames and secured by nails or staples. These prints are excellent for displays and exhibits. What’s more, they are sometimes coated with aqueous-based satin. This coating protects the prints against any scratch or damage. They project that high fashion quality highly favored by critics. Stretched prints usually take longer to produce; printing could take three days or more.
You have two stretched canvas printing options. You could choose from either a gallery or a museum wrap. Gallery wrap extends the print 1.5" over the canvas' frames. Museum wrap leaves a 1.5" white space around the image for the decorative frame.
Rolled Canvas Prints
Rolled canvas prints will give you the same output but without a frame. They are made using a thick poly-cotton blend and printed with a matte finish. Usually, they have a faster turnaround time; printing will take one or two days.
