Canvas printing

The last twenty years has seen the photo on canvas really evolve. Direct photo-realistic printing has been around for approximately two decades and today it is impossible to differentiate it from classic film exposure. But there’s also a lot more to canvas printing than just the printing process.

Printing on canvas – how it works

Your photo files are very important. In an ideal world you will have an image file with a good resolution for printing on canvas. However it must be noted that photo prints or slides also have just the same amount of potential to become a very good canvas print.

Canvas stretched over frame
After printing, the canvas is then stretched onto a wooden frame. This frame is available in a choice of two thicknesses; 0.8 in (2 cm) standard & 1.6 in (4 cm) gallery.

Stretching the canvas
The canvas print is stretched by hand around the wooden frame and then tightened. This ensures that the canvas lies wrinkle-free across the frame.

Once the canvas has been stretched over the frame, the corners are formed. These are so designed that the image is wrapped around the frame. This allows the image to also be recognised from the side.

Fastening the corners
The corners of the canvas print are stretched in a way that allows the image to be viewed from the side. Now properly secured, the canvas can be hung up straight away.
