Canvas Prints vs. Paper

May 7, 2019

Canvas prints, additionally referred to as canvas gallery wraps are a high-quality and excellent way to show off your most beloved photographs that offer several benefits as it’ll come to affordability, beauty, and versatility vs. having the photographs printed on paper.  Speedpro Penticton explores five benefits of canvas prints:

Eliminate costly bulky frames

As you make the choice to print on canvas rather than paper, the image is stretched onto the frame in the same way an artist stretches the canvas onto a frame prior to painting. In turn, the print is pre-framed. There isn’t any need to cover any of your image with matting material or frame and this process wraps the image over the sides, bottom, and top of the photo. It’s possible, of course, to still frame a gallery-wrapped canvas print; however, it is optional and not really necessary.

Heirloom-quality masterpieces

You know your hobby is not cheap, as an amateur photographer. Absolutely, cameras in phones are improving, occasionally even impressive. However, they are still no substitution for an actual camera, whether you are shooting digital or 35mm film. You also work diligently on your chosen artform. Gallery wraps and canvas prints permit you to show off your best work while providing it the quality of a beautiful oil painting. The canvas prints are permanent and may be handed down, as well as cherished for generations into the future.

No size limitation

With photos printed on paper then framed, you’ll sacrifice a bit of the image to both the matte and frame itself. In addition, the larger the print, the heavier a frame, which means that you are limited as it’ll come to the size print it’s possible to display. But, with canvas prints, due to the image being wrapped around the frame, you never need to sacrifice any of the image. What’s more, you aren’t restricted to a maximum size. That is because gallery-wrapped canvas prints are a lot lighter weight and even can be split into panels, so they are ideal in any size, which includes larger wall areas.

Free of glare

Even a matte photograph under glass will encounter glare as it is hung in your living room or on the walls of your office. Gallery wraps get pre-framed and do not require glass; therefore, sun and light will not reflect off of them in the same way as they will on a framed photo. This means it’s possible to appreciate the whole image all of the time without the distraction of glare; not just as the sun is in the proper position.

Save cash

It may seem counter intuitive yet having your most treasured photographs printed on canvas rather than buying frames costs less in the majority of cases. In addition, you never need to wait as long for the canvas print as you usually might for the print to be expertly framed. As you opt to have the photography captured onto canvas you’ll receive a large format print with the quality of a painting and appears as if it cost more than having the image printed on paper then framed.
