Stretched canvas prints can be a great alternative to prints on paper for a number of reasons. The popularity of canvas prints as gifts has been growing for years and no wonder. They are easy to hang, don’t require a frame, and immediately distinguish themselves from your average drugstore prints.
Keep in mind, that in addition to photographs, it can be a great option for reproductions of original paintings. Selling limited reproductions of artwork allows artists to reach a totally different customer base than would be capable or interested in buying an original. Additionally, depending on the size of the edition of prints, reproductions can be a profitable approach for artists.
We print and stretch canvas here at Color Space. There are a couple of canvas options (depending on budget and preferences) as well coating and stretching options. Below you’ll see a 24×36 piece from Philip Noyed that we printed, coated with our satin protective coating, and stretched. You’ll also see an example of a gallery wrapped edge (the image wraps around the side of the stretcher bars).
