Originally known as fine art printing or giclee printing, custom canvas printing is the most common means of reproducing fine artwork and digital photography.
Large canvas prints feature infused images that have penetrating and energetic colors; colors that can’t be reproduced using traditional flat printing methods on paper or vinyl. A canvas print adds depth and texture to your artwork, photography, or other business renderings that are simply beyond comparison to other methods of image reproduction.
Glossy vs Matte Canvas Printing
Images created through custom canvas printing are permanent and come in glossy or matte finishes with no glare or reflections from the printed photos. Glossy and matte canvas prints are lightweight and can easily be mounted on walls around your living area, work, or presentation space.
Large canvas printing (or giclee printing) is a printing process that reproduces your image or photograph onto a canvas material generally made from cotton or polyester. Once applied, the printed canvas can then be wrapped around a borderless frame, or framed traditionally depending on your tastes.
