How are your canvas prints made?

We love to make beautiful art to bring you joy.

Your photo file is carefully checked, and we will contact you to confirm acceptance of your commission…

Then the first stage of production is to take care of the small changes which you have requested, if any. These are carefully corrected by individual digital image editing. Some of the small changes that we can make for you might include:

  • Removing a piece of litter from the grass.
  • Straightening a horizon.
  • Improving the clarity of your image.
  • Overall lightening or darkening to balance your image.
  • Overall colour correction.
  • Cropping the edges slightly to balance the composition.
  • Adding to the edges of your image to allow for the printed canvas wrapping over the edges of the wooden frame.

Next a combination of digital painting and formatting are applied to your image to achieve your chosen style. All photos are different and this whole process can take hours of work. High quality professional equipment is used for the whole process.

After you approve a visual of the finished work, your lovely new photo artwork is printed using lightfast eco-friendly inks in a ‘Giclée’ printing process, on a large professional press. Our canvas prints are made with environmentally friendly water based inks and are also vegan-friendly.

The lavish hues achieved in your photo art print are covered by the Lightfastness Guarantee for at least 100 years.

Your gorgeous, high quality canvas print is then carefully stretched over handmade wooden stretcher bars by an artisan framer.

Our handmade stretcher bars are of only specially selected, sustainable wood which is hardwearing and will not warp. They are specially profiled to protect the surface of your print from marking by the bar beneath the image. The canvas corners are folded tightly over each edge and then fixed securely in place, giving a classy and classic stretched canvas finish to your photo art. Tape is used to cover the fixings for a smooth, neat finish on the back.

Your canvas photo print artwork is delivered to you, free of charge in the UK, ready to hang on the wall.
