Canvas Print Frequently Asked Questions

What is a canvas print

Our canvas prints take your chosen images and print them directly onto artist grade cotton canvas using the latest large format printers. The ink penetrates into the canvas so that the texture of the canvas is still visible. We then laminate the canvas with a very thin protective layer that seals in the colours and provides a professional, sharp finish. Finally the canvas is carefully wrapped around a 1.5 inch thick wooden stretcher frame ready for hanging directly on your wall.

Does the image wrap around the sides of the canvas ("gallery wrap")?

As standard we "mirror wrap" our photo canvases. This means that the image you see on our website appears on the front of the canvas and the sides of the frame are mirror images/reflections of the front. This effect looks very natural when stretched. We do this as often photos can loose some important parts to the side of the frame if the whole original photo is wrapped.

Do the canvas prints come framed

Our canvases don't come framed in the classic sense of the word but as they are wrapped around a deep 1.5 inch thick stretcher frame they look fantastic hung directly on the wall.

How long does a canvas print last

We only use Epson Ultrachrome inks for our canvas prints which are lightfast (don't fade) for up to 65 years. Our lamination process also helps protect the canvas surface and we are so confident with our prints that we guarantee print quality for 80 years!

How are the canvas prints packaged and sent

All our canvases are currently sent via a signed for delivery service. Each canvas is bubble wrapped before several layers of cardboard are fixed around it. This provides a sturdy and safe packaging to ensure that your canvas arrives with you in perfect condition.

What is the cost/time of delivery

Standard delivery to mainland UK is 9.99 and takes 1 working day from the point of dispatch. Delivery to the Highlands and offshore UK destinations is 14.99 per order whilst delivery to the Republic of Ireland costs 19.99 per order.

How quickly can I get my canvas print

Our canvas prints will generally be dispatched 1 working days from when you ordered. i.e if you order on Tuesday we will post your canvas on Wednesday and you will receive it on Thursday (Offshore destinations may take 1 extra day for delivery). Please note that deliveries only occur on working days so if you order on Thursday we will post on Friday and your canvas will be delivered on Monday.

What inks and printing technique do you use for your canvas prints

We mainly use large format Epson prints and Epson Ultrachrome inks for the best quality in print and in colouring.

How are the canvas prints stretched

All our canvases are hand stretched around 1.5 inch deep kiln dried wood stretchers. These stretchers are hand finished by our professional carpenters and the canvas is stapled to the rear of the frame so that no blemishes are visible on the front or sides of the artwork. We then tape the back of the frame so that the canvas can hang flush to your wall for the best possible finish.
