    What Is A Canvas Print? All You Need To Know

    Whether you want to display a family vacation or a timeline of school photos, canvas prints are an eye-catching way to show off your favorite photos. Not only do they liven up any space, they’re an artistic way to update a room.

    What Is A Canvas Print?

    A canvas print, not to be confused with a canvas painting, is an image printed from an inkjet printer onto canvas. Once printed, the canvas gets stretched onto a frame. Some people opt for a frameless border while others prefer framed canvas prints. To create an unframed canvas print, many use the gallery-wrapping technique. During this process, the canvas is wrapped around the stretcher bars and secured to the frame.

    What Is Canvas Made Of?

    Canvas is a strong and durable fabric created with hemp. In more modern times, cotton and linen have replaced hemp. Most of the canvas prints that you buy for your home use cotton. The main difference between the two is the exactness of the color.

    Color seeps into cloth made with cotton fibers. Because of this, prints are more vivid and cotton prints are longer-lasting.

    So which is better? It depends on what you’re looking for. Many consider cotton prints higher-quality and closer to what you would find in a museum. But it is the more affordable option, and it also yields bold and colorful prints.
