Looking for a cost-effective way to show off your favorite photograph or art reproduction? A unique texture, lightweight hanging, and customizable finish are what make canvas the perfect choice for prints of all types. Large custom canvas prints are a great way to show off your art or photos in your home, office, or other indoor environments.
By reading this article we will explain the 4 benefits of large custom canvas prints, what your canvas print options are, and how you can create your own work of art.
4 Reasons You Should Choose Large Custom Canvas Prints
Turning photos and art reproductions into stunning large custom canvas prints is extremely easy and budget-friendly!
Canvas prints make nearly any photo or art reproduction look its best!
You can choose to have your artwork come already framed, so no need for special installation hardware or complicated instructions. ArtisanHD makes ordering easy, with options up to 10 feet wide.
2. Timeless Quality
Canvas prints are the traditional choice for home wall décor. They’re very versatile, meaning they’ll look great for years to come, even as your home décor changes. All of our canvas materials/finishes are archival-rated.
When you choose a canvas print from ArtisanHD, you will be getting a UV cured, Latex-based print, that is fade-resistant and can last for over a century with proper care. No extra varnishing or sealing is needed. It may require a little dusting with a dry towel now and then, otherwise, your print is maintenance-free! Install your canvas out of direct sunlight for best results.
You can get a lot of bang for your buck with canvas prints! Because these prints are lightweight, require less post-finishing / assembly labor, and already have the frame included, there’s no mounting hardware necessary and very little hanging hardware. You can see your prints displayed on a grand scale for a fraction of the cost of acrylic, metal, or other types of prints.
Here are some common print sizes in different mediums and their prices. (Canvas is listed under Archival, towards the right side of the document.)
Worried about image quality? Our photo customizer will let you know when your resolution is too low for your print size. And, we can even print your photos and wall art in large custom sizes to fit nearly any display area.
2 Things to Consider Before Ordering your Large Custom Canvas Prints
When you begin thinking about your large custom canvas prints, decide how you want your canvases installed on your wall.
Do you want a single XL canvas to become an eye-catching statement, or do you want to create a wall art gallery? Decide whether you want to fill up a space or compliment another piece of décor, such as a sculpture or fireplace.
- 20×30 – Perfect for a family photo collage or landscape collection.
- 24×36 – A great feature print. Consider pairing with smaller prints to create a wall art gallery.
- 30×40 – Ideal for landscape photos, or images of a tall building.
- 40×60 – Popular scale/proportion for many XL prints, still printable with regular cameras / or even new iPhone shots. Once you get over 40×60, a medium-format camera should be used for capturing high-quality print files.
Another option is XL printing – Available in sizes up to 10 feet!
Looking for more ways to customize your canvas prints? ArtisanHD offers a variety of finishing methods.
Archival ink can be UV-sealed in 3 different ways:
- Matte finish – Fine art reproductions, photos in high lighting environments
- Semi-gloss – Portraits
- Glossy – Commercial prints
We recommend mirrored gallery wrapping for most prints, especially landscapes and nature images. To give the prints a more artistic, 3D quality, you can choose one of these 3 wrapping options:
- Mirrored gallery wrap – The outer edge of the image is mirrored, and the canvas is stretched on a high-quality wood frame.
- Black gallery wrap – Side surfaces are black, and the canvas is stretched on a high-quality wood frame.
- White gallery wrap – Side surfaces are white, and the canvas is stretched on a high-quality wood frame.
Our experienced print staff wraps your canvas around the edges of the wooden frame and secures the canvas to the back. No frame is necessary, and your lightweight print is ready for hanging. You can choose from:
- Standard 1 1/2″ frame
- Deep 2″ wooden frame
- Thin 9/16″ frame
Or you could go frameless and just order a rolled canvas for self-framing
