What canvas do we use?
We use 100% pure brilliant white canvas 280gsm. There is also the option to upgrade to a 380gsm 100 % Cotton Canvas.
What print resolution do we use?
We use 1440 DPI - Twice the typical resolution that other canvas printers, this means you get a much sharper quality picture.
Can we do other custom sizes?
Yes we can do, if you would like a size that you cannot see on the website please get in touch with us via the ‘Contact Us’ Page.
If I order today does that mean I will receive the canvas within 48 hours?
Our courier operates on a next day delivery service. However your order can take 48 Hours to be produced and then dispatched depending on the order size.
I take professional photos do you ever reuse them?
Will the colours of the print be same as on my monitor?
As there are many types of monitors out there, resolutions and configurations, we cannot guarantee that the print will match the image on your monitor, as colours on different mediums act and appear differently. We do however use colour correction techniques, the latest Epson high quality printers and inks to get the best result possible.
Choosing canvas size based on your image size
For best results, we recommend at least 72 pixels per inch. If your image doesn't meet the requirements, the canvas sizes are greyed out above. If you wish to disregard our recommendations and order a large canvas anyway, then please tick the box.
Do I need a certain pixel sized image to have a canvas made?
That depends on what size canvas you would like, although the higher the pixel image the better the quality of the print. Uploaded Smaller photographs pixelate and blur when stretching to larger sizes, so think carefully about the photo and your choice in size.
Choosing Frame Depth
We have a choice of frame depths. You can choose from; 18mm (1") Depth or 38mm Depth (2"). This is how thick the canvas edges are. 18mm(1") depth is standard, and 38mm (2") depth stands off the wall more, giving a greater effect and a more modern feel. This looks especially great on larger canvases.
Varnish – UV Protection
Adding varnish to your order is a great addition. It will help protect it against UV Light, which will extend its life and stops discoloration and fading, varnish will make your canvas more damp/moisture proof and also helps enhance colours and contrast. The UV Protected Varnish also helps reduce the rub markes that appear on black and whites or solid colour canvases, and helps to reduce the likely hood of getting scratched.
This kit includes a hanger installed on to the canvas and a hook with two nails to be installed on your wall where you want your canvas to hang. This is to help ensure that your canvas hangs correctly on your wall with less of a chance of it falling off a nail.
As Standard we copy the outer edges of the photograph, and mirror it along the sides allowing you to have the whole original photo on the canvas front.
Your photos are wrapped around the canvas box frame. (Thismeans that part of your image will be wrapped over the canvas sides)
Your canvas will be left with white sides, and your full image will be on the canvas front. To ensure that none of the white edge appears on the from of the canvas there will be a small part of the image showing on your canvas sides.
Your canvas will be left with a black sides, and your full immage will be on the canvas front. To ensure that none of the black edge appears on the front of the canvas there will be a small part of the image showing on your canvas sides.
