Print on canvas is the product of an illustration printed directly onto canvas that’s often stretched or mounted, on a wooden frame and then displayed on a wall. Prints are usually used as a means to replicate other types of artwork, such as a painting, rather than as the main focus of a work of art. Canvas printings have been around for centuries and are enjoying a renaissance in popularity at the moment. Many galleries will now display prints of a range of different artists, and more modern printing techniques are available. There are so many different things to choose from when considering canvas printings, and this article will explore some of the more popular methods of reproduction.
Reproducing artwork using canvas photo prints has become increasingly popular over the last few years and is widely available. Canvases are now commonly used for canvas printings, either as completely self-contained units (the most popular form) or as part of a larger grouping of artwork that can be hung on a gallery wall. The type of canvas that you choose will depend on the style and theme of your final piece. Oil paintings and watercolors have the advantage of being easy to clean, and linen or silk canvases are also soft and wrinkle free.
The printing process varies between different manufacturers. For canvas prints of higher quality, high resolution scanning is often required before the images are printed. The type of printing process that is used will also determine the size of the canvas, the number of sides and the amount of text that can be included. There are now also inkjet and flexography alternatives to the traditional canvas process.
