How would a photograph look printed on canvas?
Photographs will look great printed on canvas. Our canvas prints are printed on high quality canvas, similar to what a painting is made on, which is perfect for Gallery showings and is usually the media of choice for professional artists for that pupose. The canvas gives your photo a texture that makes it look as if it were painted, but your photograph remains clear and sharp.
