3 Considerations for Quality Canvas Photo Printing


If you want to display your photography at home or in your office, you should consider choosing canvas printing. This method of showcasing digital art presents unique aesthetics, is durable and generally expedient in terms of service access. You can carry out the printing tasks at home or engage professionals for expert results. Here are some important considerations to help you get the best canvas-printed photography.

Canvas Choice

There are different types of canvas products available for purchase in the photography industry. Your choice of the ideal product will primarily depend on your preference in terms of aesthetics. The two main types of canvas utilised are matte and gloss. The base canvas used to obtain matte and gloss products is typically the same so the protective coating used to cover the print will determine the final results.

Gloss canvas prints are popular because of the flawless aesthetics presented and the protection provided to the photo. Basically, if you want a shine to the photo, then gloss is ideal. Matte prints are favourable when you want artwork that is less refined and somewhat unfinished. Matte does not have a shine or reflect a lot of light, so if you don't want lighting to affect how someone views the photo, this option might be better.


Basically, resolution in digital photography is the measure of the quality of your work. High resolution photos are sharp, clear and appealing to the eye while low resolution alternatives can be blurry. It is important for you to select high quality images which reflect true colours before printing them on canvas. This will minimise the wastage of good material and the inconvenience of purchasing new products.

It is advisable for you to plan for the canvas printing during the initial photography. This way, you will be able to consider all aspects including lighting, subject and quality requirements. The standard measure utilised is pixels per unit area—the more they are, the better. You should remember that despite the advances in technology, your input will always determine the output. Moreover, most photo printing laboratories have minimum resolution that they can print so you should inquire before sending an image.

Wrap Width

The wrap width of the photograph will affect the presented appeal so this factor should be evaluated. This facet refers to the edges of the print which are typically wrapped around the unappealing edges of the frame to enhance display. For quality results, choose an image that can be wrapped effectively without affecting the main subject of the art. As in, you don't want part of someone's face or head to be part of the wrapped material.

If this is not possible, you can create a custom wrap image from the photo background to cover the frame so as to preserve the continuity. Alternatively, a solid block colour which complements the original image can be printed to cover the edges.
