Product Information

Do you laminate or use varnish protection to my canvas print?

Each one of our canvas prints is hand-treated with our archival-grade ultra-protective satin finish. We guarantee that your print will never crack, flake, or bubble. This finish also provides protection against UV rays, acts as an anti-fungal agent (particularly necessary in humid environments), and adds a scuff and scratch resistance. It also enhances the depth and clarity of your colors.

What sort of canvas do you use for your prints?

We choose the best quality canvas for your canvas prints. We’ve carefully selected a heavyweight archival-grade 420gsm textured bright white poly-cotton blend. This is a tight, strong weave with no additives, and gives your print stunning realistic color reproduction.

What sort of frame is my canvas stretched around

Each one of your canvas print frames is hand-made to order. We source the highest quality sustainable kiln-dried 18mm European pine that’s knot and warp-free.

Care Instructions

Am I able to hang my print out of doors?

Product Information

What are canvas prints?

A canvas print is just that: an image that’s printed onto canvas. The canvas is then stretched or gallery-wrapped onto a frame. It’s a fantastic option for displaying your favorite photos, as canvas prints are lightweight, slightly textured to give a ‘painterly’ effect, and don’t emit glare or reflect light.

How are your canvas prints made?

Each of our prints is made using 0.7-inch European pine for the frame, and premium 420gsm archival grade canvas. Your print is then hand-laminated using archival-certified fine art satin print varnish, that provides an extra level of protection against dust, UV rays, and humidity, and delivers an enhanced color depth.

Are canvas prints tacky?

Not at all. Our canvas prints are designed for fine art and photography reproduction. We use superior quality products to make your prints, and each one is made by hand by our master craftspeople. There is nothing tacky about your canvas print.

What is giclée canvas prints?

Giclée canvas printing is essentially the term used for any fine art print that’s made using an inkjet printer, using high-quality, fade-resistant archival inks, and printed onto canvas.

The term originated in 1991 thanks to printmaker Jack Duganne. Duganne was looking for a new name for special prints he was making using his industrial high-resolution inkjet printer. He was inspired by the French for ‘le gicleur’, or nozzle, which did all the spraying of ink in his fine art production process.

What do canvas prints look like?

Your photo is printed onto fine art-grade canvas and stretched over a solid wooden frame. This provides a lightly textured, ‘painterly’ look and feel, bringing your images to life. As your photo has been printed onto textured material and finished with a matte UV-resistant varnish, there’s no glare or reflection like you get from a photograph.

Canvas prints typically are finished without an external frame, so you get a clear crisp image that extends to the edge of your canvas and around to the sides, providing a three-dimensional look.

We love canvas prints and want to show you how we can bring your photos to life. Check out our range here for inspiration.
