Canvas FAQs

How do I order a rolled paper or canvas print?

Prints can be ordered in the Canvas Prints section in the top navigation. To get started, upload your image and choose your print size. Select the 'Print This Image' button. Choose your canvas or paper substrate and click the 'Add to Cart' button. If you choose to print your image on a canvas, select the 'Rolled Canvas' option and click the 'Add to Cart' button.

What frame should I choose for my canvas?

For canvas floater frames , we recommend selecting frames with a rabbet depth that is close to the depth of your canvas. If you choose a floater frame that does not share the same depth as your canvas, then your canvas art will stand out beyond the face of your canvas floater frame. Canvas also works well with other frames that are at least 2 1/2 inches wide or have a deep rabbet to hold your canvas in place. Shop All Canvas Friendly Frames

What are giclee canvas prints?

Giclee (pronounced "gee-clay") is a highly sophisticated inkjet printing process that uses fade-resistant archival inks to produce prints that last. Even museums have realized the vast potential of this technology, making giclee editions a permanent part of their collections. Fine art giclee printing is now the print method of choice for professionals. But you can create your own Giclee canvas print capturing cherished life moments and your museum quality print will arrive beautifully vivid, ready to hang.

What is the difference between 3/4" stretched canvas and gallery wraps?

A 3/4" stretched canvas is a classic presentation that's tautly stretched over an all-wood 5/8" stretcher bar and stapled in place for a finished depth of 3/4". Stapling is always done on the back for the more professional look that sets us apart from our competitors. This classic size is the most frame-friendly depth, finished with a standard, white border wrap and works well with hundreds of frame choices. A gallery wrap uses a thicker, all wood stretcher bar for a final depth of either 1", 1.5" or 2". It's most commonly used when the canvas is hung unframed as a stand-alone work of art or in a canvas floater frame with exposed edges. Choose from three border styles - mirrored image, black or white.

What is a mirrored image border?

The very edges of your image will be copied and flipped to cover the outer edge of the gallery wrap. The entire original work will be visible. It's just an artistic way to add visual interest to your canvas print. (Just be careful selecting this option if the edge of your image has people or words)

What is a rolled canvas?

Rolled Canvases are prints only, with a 2 1/2", white border around the edge of the canvas. A great choice for professional artists and photographers who want greater flexibility for mounting and framing, it's a more economical solution because it requires no additional stretcher bar materials and it's easier to ship.

What canvas types do you have?

How big can I go with my canvas?

The size is going to be determined by the quality of your image. We can create stretched canvas up to 50" wide. We put the most innovative Image Enlargement technology to work so you can get the larger than life images you want, without losing much (if any) quality. From older phones (prior to iPhone 5), we'll print 22x12 inches, max. From a newer phone (Pixel 2, iPhone 7 or later) that shoots at 4032x3024, we can print an image up to 4' x 6'. Now, that's big!

How much does it cost to print on canvas?

The price of your custom canvas art is determined by several factors:
  • Type of canvas you choose

  • Wrap style

  • Frame you select (if any)

Prices for stretched canvas start at just $18.90. To get an idea of what your canvas will cost, just upload your image and choose your options. The price will adjust as you make your selections, allowing you to make changes necessary to fit your budget.
