You can make that old forgotten photo mean something to someone. And every time they look they will be reminded of the amazing childhood memories.

There are different aspects to consider when selecting the best canvas prints for different reasons. We have outlined for you the best tips to consider when choosing canvas prints.


1. Type of canvas print

canvas printsThere are two main types of material used to make canvas prints. They include polyester and cotton canvases. Despite polyester canvases being the cheaper alternative, cotton canvases have an upper hand when it comes to quality. For the polyester, the ink used stays on the surface of the canvas while for the cotton, the ink infiltrates deeply into the tissues leaving an impressive coloration. In general, the higher the cotton content on the canvas print, the better looking and longer lasting.

2. Choice of photo

When selecting a photograph to use on the canvas print, make sure to settle for that which never grows old. Well, you may grow old, but the photo never will. Choose the photograph that will always make you smile when you look at it, or laugh, or feel nostalgic about. Bottom line being, you will never get bored of seeing it.

The quality of the photo also matters. Photos of decent quality will produce decent canvas prints. And because you are going to hang for people to see, the details on the photo need to be as vibrant as possible.

3. Scheme of color

What color is your room? Does the color of the canvas print complement the existing colors on the wall? These are the two questions you should ask yourself before taking up prints. Your friends or family members may not mind what you get them, but if you’re looking to add a touch to your office, it is important to consider the color scheme. You don’t want clashing colors to embarrass you.

4. Precise shape and size

Both the shape photo to be printed and the canvas to be printed need to be taken into consideration. Many canvas prints vendors have already finished frames, and all you have to do is select from the available range.
