Custom size canvas prints are a fantastic way to show off your photos, especially if you have larger images that need a big canvas to really stand out. They can also be used to create a photo collage or gallery wall, and they work well in any room of the house.
Can art canvas get wet?
When choosing your canvas print size, you’ll need to consider the final location and how much space you want to fill – a large image will look best on a feature wall or above your sofa for example. You’ll also need to decide if you want the image to wrap around the sides of the canvas or not, and whether you want it to be in portrait or landscape format.
The quality of canvas prints can vary widely, depending on the printing service you choose – make sure that they use pigmented inks rather than dye based as these are far more lightfast. Some canvas print services will also coat their prints with a layer of UV protection to help keep them looking fresh for longer.
Social Print Studios is a great option for canvas prints, offering one museum-quality finish using archival inks (which are long-lasting and resistant to light and damp). They have an easy-to-use upload system with wrap clearly highlighted at every step and their customer service is friendly and reliable too. CanvasPop is another top choice for canvas prints, with an excellent uploader and an in-built resolution checker to help you avoid creating a low-resolution print. They’re slightly more expensive than some of the other services we’ve looked at but they often have deals on which makes them a good option for those on a budget.
