What is a canvas print?

Our shop sells modern decorative prints that will elevate your space. Please remember that frames are not included.

A canvas print, not to be confused with a canvas painting, is an image printed from an inkjet printer onto canvas. 

There is common confusion between mounted prints, acrylic prints and canvas prints. A mounted print is a paper print attached to a backing board. The emphasis of this print is to preserve the photo and prepare it for framing or put on a wall. Canvas prints give an artistic feel. This is because they’re similar in appearance to oil and acrylic paintings.

Canvas is a strong and durable fabric traditionally created with hemp. Today, cotton and linen have replaced hemp. Most of the canvas prints that you buy for your home use cotton or polyester. 

Most of our prints are cotton prints. Cotton is higher-quality and closer to what you would find in a museum.
