The aesthetically pleasing presentation of a gallery wrapped photo canvas is appealing to all levels of photo enthusiasts from professional photographers to everyday shutterbugs. This guide aims to help even the most novice photographer to share their pictures in the form of a professional photo canvas.
The first step in printing a photo canvas is deciding whether to print and wrap your photo canvas yourself or to seek out a professional printer to perform this service for you. If you do not have any experience in digital printing and gallery wrapping, it is recommended that you find a dependable poster and canvas printing business that can meet your needs. The best way to find a skilled and friendly printer is to ask around. Find out who has had a good experience with a printer and determine if you like the finished product that the printer produced. If you do not have access to anyone in your immediate social circle, the next best option is a reputable online poster printing company. You could search for "online poster printing" using your favored search engine. Once you have found an online printer that offers the product and options you want, check and see if they have a money back guarantee. Online printing can be tricky and most established online printers will offer a money back guarantee to ensure the customer's satisfaction. Also, seek out customer reviews on the site and on the web to see what the online community thinks of this company.
Once you have selected an online printer, you will need to select a file for upload. Use the printer's website to upload, edit and submit your photo canvas order. The online printer might offer several framing options and wrapping options. You should choose the options that best fit your needs. It would be a good idea to ask for a proof before they print your photo on canvas. One option that is particularly useful is the protective satin finish. This coating protects your photo canvas from scratching and cracking so that it will last for years to come.
When you receive your photo canvas, you will need to decide whether you wish to hang it using a hang wire, hanging hooks or simply use the inside of the wooden stretcher bar frame. The hanging hooks are usually the best for keeping you photo canvas straight, but be sure that you use at least two and balance your hang points with a level.
If all goes well, you should have a beautiful photo canvas hanging on your wall in no time. Experiment with multiple prints side-by-side or place your photo canvas prints in a collage formation for an added artistic element. There are many ways to enjoy your photo canvas, so don't be afraid to try no applications or setups.
