Fine Art Photographs on Canvas

One of the fastest growing trends in the art photography world has been printing fine art photography on canvas. Photographs on canvas have a luxurious look and feel and offer some interesting options for displaying. For example, stretching the canvas and applying a gallery wrap has become extremely popular. The gallery wrap image is mirrored, extended and folded around the edges of the stretcher bars, thus doing away with the need for a frame. This gives a modern look which is sometimes less expensive than traditional framing.

We have been reproducing my fine art photographs on canvas for many years now with great success. We have learned a few things that are important in getting the best quality and greatest longevity possible from a canvas print. We use a special canvas that is designed to be coated after the image is applied to protect the image from fading, scratching and scuffing. The canvas is then machine coated with a UV protectant sealant. It is applied by a machine rather than being hand rolled or hand sprayed. The machine removes residual dust as the coating is applied and can do a much more uniform job of application than a human can. Photographs on canvas produced in this way are projected to be fade free for 100+ years.
