Canvas prints give your photos a natural look
Using personalised canvas prints to decorate your walls at home offers many advantages which few printing fabrics and materials can beat. From the times of Renaissance painters until our days, canvas has survived for its great durability and sturdiness. Only such a highly resistant surface can support techniques such as oil painting and digital canvas prints. Besides, canvas art is arguably the best way to present your pictures with a classical and natural look. In myphotobook UK canvas prints, photos are first printed onto a high-quality canvas sheet. In the next phase, the photo canvas is manually stretched over a wooden frame, folded down over the sides, stapled on the edges. Thus, at least 2,5cm of the canvas won't be seen. A mounting and a hanging kit are then added at the back, making it fast and easier to put up on the wall. Finally, your artwork will be carefully packed so that you receive in the best conditions. Furthermore, canvas art prints are UV-resistant, preserving the brilliance of your best images. So what kind of product can you expect get once you order your personalised canvas prints with myphotobook UK? You will gain:
- maximum resistance to light influence,
- a high-quality and refined fabric,
- a surface with a natural texture and solid structure,
- a UV protected canvas print, thanks to the use of UV proof ink,
- a 2 cm-thick canvas block,
- a genuinely handmade product.
Where to put your canvas art: can you hang canvas prints in a bathroom?
Since humid places aren't exactly suitable for canvas art, bathroom, kitchens and outdoor spaces should be preferably avoided. A living-room or bedroom are clearly the best parts of the house to place your canvas prints and they will also get to to be seen more frequently. Your personalised canvas prints will attract the attention of anyone who enters your living-rooom. As a present for Mum, Dad or your grandparents in a compact size or with a portrait photo, canvas art can be highly versatile.

If you are considering getting a group of canvas prints for your photos, finding a nice combination of different sizes can provide highly successful results.
What size works best for personalised canvas art?
Generally speaking, medium size pictures are the best to make your own canvas print. However, some personalised canvas prints need a bit of more space in order to gain presence. A photo collage looks especially good on a 60x40cm canvas print (23.6 x 15.7). Another original combination is to put up a group of canvas beside each other as one unit - in a so called "split canvas". Have thought about building a horizonal triptych with three different pictures?
What's the best resolution for canvas prints?
Square 40 x 40 cm and rectangular 40 x 30cm canvas prints will need a minimum resolution of 1250 pixels, whereas optimal resolution would be as of 2000 pixels. 60 to 100 cm long canvases should have at least a 1500 to 2500 pixel resolution, ideally 3000 pixels. Should the resolution not be high enough, consider resizing the picture, adding a second picture or making two different canvas prints. myphotobook offers support for all these cases with the friendliest customer service in town!
Should canvas art be framed?
Framed canvas prints are better protected than bare ones and therefore tend to keep better. Please note that when framing canvas art it is important to leave enough space around the picture (about 70 mm) so that a part of your picture doesn't get covered by the frame. To simplify this process, myphotobook offers an additional canvas framing service. For any questions about framed canvas prints, you can contact our customer service by phone, e-mail or on the online chat. If you think other formats could better fit your canvas art project, we suggest trying other formats on our online shop, as for example standard posters, personalised posters on photographic paper, acrylic prints, forex prints, aluminium prints under acrylic glass and other metal wall art sorts.
