Nowadays it is possible to take hundreds of digital pictures and print them onto canvas. What’s more you can order it online. You no more have to go to any local studio for this. Though this process is easy, fast and inexpensive, but you need to take into account several aspects when ordering these photos on canvas printing service.

Printing photos on canvas requires some techniques. 'Inkjet art' is the most well-liked kind of canvas prints that requires large format inkjet printers. This printer uses pigment archival inks for printing the photos on canvas.

Cotton or Poly-Cotton Canvas?

The fabric of canvas may be pure cotton or a blend of cotton and polyester. The majority of canvas providers mention on their websites which kind of canvas they make use of. Usually the pure cotton canvas prints cost more than the mixed fabric canvas. The pure cotton canvas is great that offers the print a natural look, while the poly-cotton mix gives the print more plastic or linen appearance. After the picture is printed, the material disappears and a stretcher frame is used to expand it. This special kind of wooden timber frame has locks in each corner that helps to re-stretch the canvas by pushing these locks towards the frame's corners. We recommend not purchasing photos canvas prints that are just supported by the wooden panel. You should make sure that it is properly framed in the traditional method that uses stretching on the wedged timber frame. This is essential for sturdiness of the print, since the canvas may be a little loose after using some time and at that time you will require those wedges to re-stretch it again.

What photos are appropriate forPhotos canvasprinting?

Photo Resolution: The quality of the canvas print depends on the resolution of your photo. Usually a photo that has below 250KB should not be submitted, as it may show 'pixelated', even on a 10x10cm print. When deciding on an online photos canvas store ensure that their website offers a photo checking tool. After you upload your photo, it should be able to tell whether the resolution of your photo is appropriate for the canvas size you selected.

A print with as a minimum 250DPI, on canvas, is quite good. But the professional printers that use different software can 'enrich' photos having lower resolution. Many algorithms are used to actually enlarge a photo and enhance the resolution simultaneously by artificially creating pixels. But the end product may show patterns like minor circles or squares.

Cropping or Resizing?  

A good online photo on canvas print shop should enable you to crop or resize the photo according to the canvas size. This is so because photos have many aspect ratios. So your photo may require some cropping.
