We give you the option of printing on two different canavases. The first is a nice satin canvas that stretches or mounts well. The second is an economy canvas for those large production jobs.
17M Satin Canvas is a clean white canvas with a satin finish and fine texture. The 1 over 1 weave is some of the finest available. It is a moderately heavy canvas with a weight of 360gsm. At 17.5mils thick, it is thick enough to be durable, but thin enough to stretch easily. This canvas requires no lacquer as a finish, as it was developed to carry the satin sheen without additional rolling, brushing or spraying. This 98% opacity canvas is a cotton/poly blend at 65% cotton and 35% polyester.
Production Matte Canvas is great for those high production jobs. It is 100% polyester and has a fine 1 over 1 weave. The finish is a true matte finish that can be stretched or mounted as is, or have matte, satin or gloss lacquer coatings applied for additional longevity. It is a 280gsm canvas at 14 mils thick. It has an opacity of 96% and carries ink well.
Canvas may be printed in a number of different ways. They may be printed with white, black, colored or mirrored edges. Or, if preferred, the canvas may be printed so the existing image is stretched around the bars. All of our canvases are “gallery wrapped.” This is when the staples that hold the canvas in place are on the back of the stretching bars so your artwork can hang without a frame. For added flair, you may add a “floater frame” to give a clean finish.
The most popular look is to have the canvas “mirrored” around the edges. This creates an image on the edges without cutting in to the face of the image. The outer 2 inches of the face are copied and flipped so the image appears continuous over the sides.
Another option is to have the sides of the printed in a complimentary color or black. The face of the image again is not affected. This gives a clean, crisp look and finishes the piece nicely.
A simple stretch is yet another way to display your image. In this process, part of the face of the image wraps around the sides. It creates a continuous image, but cuts into the image. This option is great if your image has a lot of background around the edges, and brings the central image closer to the viewer.
A final manner of finishing the sides of your artwork is to leave the edges white. Similar to the black or colored sides, this does not affect the face of your image.
There are several options for finishing your canvas to make it ready to hang.
Wire hanger is the most common method of hanging a wrapped canvas. It is simple, clean, and usually requires only one nail or hanger.
For larger canvases, or ones that need to be secured, we recommend the Z Bar cleat system. One piece is attached to the canvas back. The other is attached to the wall. The two pieces interlock to provide a secure and tight fit to the wall.
A beautiful finishing option is to mount the canvas in a “floater” frame. The canvas face rests even with the top of the frame, while showing some of the side of the canvas. Floater frames come in Gold, White, Black or Silver.
Canvas printing is the perfect way to turn boring walls into your own personal art gallery. Whether it’s a laughter-filled family photo, portraits or a gorgeous shot of a natural landscape, a canvas print works for many occasions.
Here at Artistic Wholesale, we specialize in transforming your digital files into upscale tangible photos, and canvas printing is one of our favorite ways to do it. We use the best processes and the output is a true giclée, no matter the substrate. What makes canvas printing such a great choice?
Gives Your Images a Professional Look with Canvas Prints
Canvas prints are unique in that they give even cell phone photos a professional look. In fact, if you are looking for class and elegance, few printing processes are better.
Unlike photo prints, canvases contain less gloss. This means that the small details in your photos will stand out more. The texture also adds a unique, tangible feel to your photos, allowing the vibrant colors and images to come to life in your home and office.
You won’t need a professional decorator when you work with us; all you need are some beautiful images to turn into canvas prints. Should you still want a decorator or designer, take comfort in knowing we have some on staff.
Keeps Your Favorite Images Looking Good on Canvas
Another perk to choosing this style is that your pictures will last for a long time. In fact, did you know that most museum pieces are printed on canvas?
That’s because canvas prints are much more durable and can withstand a lot more variance in the environment. You can even hang your prints in humid areas of the house such as the bathroom.
By printing an image on canvas, you are creating a work of art that will last for generations.
Makes Decorating Your Utah Home or Business Simple
Lastly, this process makes decorating a breeze. Not only are they lightweight and easy to move around, but they also don’t need a traditional glass panel like photos do.
In fact, many canvas prints wrapped around an internal frame. You no longer have to worry about picking out frames that match the room. Instead, your print will be ready to hang up in any room at any time. If you desire a frame, we can accommodate that, too. We have thousands of mouldings to choose from, including a unique selection of floater frames designed with wrapped canvas in mind.
These prints are also extremely easy to customize. Transform your image into different panels for extra visual impact, or size it to match your wall. With virtually unlimited sizing options, you’ll get exactly the look you want.
