Use Printing Experts
One of the easiest ways to get the canvas print you desire is by using an online printing company. Choosing this form of printing is a simple and stress-free way of bringing your photos to life. Before you decide on which online canvas creator to use, you should check a few factors, including; materials, ink, varnish, framing, and the overall process, to ensure you get the print to suit your needs.

Since we’re professional photographers, we only give our customers what we ourselves would want our artwork to be displayed on. So our canvas prints are made with the highest quality materials, which are award-winning and Museum Archival Grade. They’re made from a bright white textured, heavyweight 420gsm, premium archival grade poly/cotton blend, that’s suitable for fine art and photography reproduction, allowing incredible detail, a wide gamut and eye-popping colour.

Editing Equipment
You don’t have to spend a fortune on the latest Apple Mac or purchase the best editing software, to achieve the photo you desire for your canvas print. Our experienced graphic designers, who specialise in photography, will remove any red-eye, and make minor adjustments to enhance your canvas print, such as; brightness, contrast, and tonal adjustments.

If your unsure about the quality of your image – don’t fret. Our advanced algorithm can instantly determine the quality of your photo before you order it. This allows you to choose only the canvas sizes compatible with your image quality, which eliminates any pixellation – ensuring the highest quality canvas prints every time.

The Finishing Touches
From uploading your photo to adding the finishing touches, we ensure your canvas print is ready to hang when you receive it. Each canvas print is hand-laminated with a fine art satin print varnish, that has been archival certified by the Fine Art Trade Guild. Our canvas prints boast a variety of factors, including; 100+ years archival certified, strong UV protection, colour enhancement and depth, and increased resistance to scuffing, abrasion or image fading.

Unlike some companies we also frame your canvas using premium, warp free, environmentally sustainable, 38mm deep, kiln dried European pine gallery frames, hand built by our UK master craftworkers. Not only to we want to transform your photos into art, but we also want to make sure they last a lifetime, so we use hidden staples and corner wedges.
