Many people like to decorate the walls of their home with works of art, and the ultimate ambition is to find an artwork which is unique. In most cases, however, this is extremely expensive, to a degree which places original artwork out of the reach of most people. A photo canvas manages to combine aesthetic appeal and unique imagery whilst still remaining affordable, and that’s because the technology now exists to bring canvas printing within the reach of anyone.

The images which we choose to place on the walls of our home tell the world a lot about us. As much as any other aspect of interior decoration, they are a visual representation of our personality and the mood which we want to present to the world. It’s a shame, therefore, that the vast bulk of canvas prints are mass produced and sold in bulk. This means that no matter how attractive an image may be, the nagging doubt remains that it isn’t truly personal – that the same image will be hanging on the wall of hundreds of other homes.

The only possible way around this would be to purchase prints direct from an artist, but the cost involved would be prohibitive to a degree which places such a choice out of the reach of most people. Of course, another way to decorate your home with unique artwork is to produce the images yourself but few people have the talent, equipment or confidence to do so.

The march of digital technology, however, has finally solved this conundrum, meaning that anyone who can take a digital photograph can have it turned into a photo on canvas. The possibilities are limitless – you may wish to have a canvas print of your children, which would be an artwork matching the quality of anything produced by a professional portrait studio whilst also capturing the warmth and spontaneity of a family snapshot.

A canvas print such as this would not only look fantastic in your own home, but would make an ideal gift for relatives such as doting grandparents. Since canvas prints are reproduced on canvas of the finest quality, and using printing technology which ensures a pin sharp crystal clear reproduction, they are the ideal medium via which to show off your very best photographs. Perhaps you’ve managed to capture a particularly spectacular sunset at a favourite beauty spot, or frozen the moment that a bolt of lightning struck a building, and are especially proud of the imagery which has resulted. Canvas printing will allow you to turn this extra special photograph into a genuine work of art. Once the image has been uploaded, you’re free to choose the format, be it landscape, portrait or square, and then the size.

The image will be printed to the very edge of the canvas, which will then be stretched over a sturdy wooden frame incorporating the ‘wrap-around’ look favoured by galleries everywhere. The choices don’t end there, however – you may well choose to have your picture printed in dramatic monochrome or pleasing sepia tones. A Photo canvas allows anybody to create a bespoke work of art designed exactly to fit in with their life and home, and to do so in a way which they can be certain won’t be repeated elsewhere. Manufactured so as to be wipe clean and impervious to the damaging effects of sunlight, canvas printing will produce a work of art that lasts for many years to come, allowing you to put your own individual creative stamp on your own home. Photos on canvas are products which enable everyone to express their inner artist, or to create that special gift for a one-off red letter occasion.

Canvas printing was once the preserve of professional artists or specialist companies with expensive equipment. Now it’s a technique which is well within the reach of anyone, and will allow everyone who’s ever taken a digital photo to fulfil their dreams of creativity.
