Canvas prints of the highest quality
Whether you are wanting a photo or art reproduction canvas print, we use only the highest quality certified archival grade canvas. Our canvas is acid and OBA (Optical Brightening Agents) free. The canvas has the look and feel of traditional artist canvas with the added benefit of being more consistent in base colour and texture.
Direct to Canvas Printing
We print your photos or art work directly onto the canvas using UltraChrome® K3 inks. This process, also known as Giclée, produces a better image resolution and is more durable than canvas transfer prints.
Choose from any one of these three popular styles:
|Image Wrap: the image is centered, and the outer edges of the image wrap around the wooden frame. Make sure that there is plenty of "non-essential" background as a portion of the image will wrap around the sides of the frame.
|Mirrored Edge: the outer edge of the image wraps around the sides of the wooden frame and reflects the outermost edge of the displayed image. Our most popular option.
|Solid edge: the wrapped sides of the image appear as a solid colour with black or white being the most frequently requested. Solid edges can lend a more contemporary look to an image.
Our Lyve® photo canvas prints are given the added protection of an environmentally friendly UV liquid satin varnish. A satin varnish leaves a beautiful low-gloss finish reminiscent of an oil painting. Varnish provides the best possible protection from scratches, fluctuations in moisture and most importantly, the sun's harmful UV rays.
Let it Breath
Canvas, being a woven fabric, expands and contracts with the changes in temperature and humidity. It needs to breathe. Covering the back of a canvas image may interfere with this process, so we leave the backs of our canvas prints open to allow for proper air circulation.
