Tips On Printing On Canvas

Welcome everybody back to the PFF blog. It’s been a while since we touched on canvas printing. Today we will be walking you through some tips on deciding whether a canvas printing is best suited for you.

Tip 1: Deciding on the photo to use

The most important tip is to select a picture that you love and will never get tired of. We recommend using a picture that means a great deal to you. It could be your wedding picture, a family picture, a picture related to nature, a picture of you partaking in your favourite hobby.

Do note that you should avoid silly photos for canvas prints. Canvas prints are permanent and cannot be swapped out like those in frames. In time to come, you may not appreciate these silly moments.

Tip 2: Old photos are great but the resolution of the picture is important too

Old pictures are lovely and can remind us of our parent’s love story back in the day or the good old days that we had when we were younger. Hence, printing old pictures on canvas can be an ideal choice for some of us.

However, old pictures tend to be lower in resolution. It is paramount that you do not choose a canvas size that is too big as the bigger the canvas size, the higher the required resolution of the picture has to be. Hence, you can either choose a smaller canvas or increase the resolution of your image.

Tip 3: Envision where you want to hang the canvas printing

After selecting on your desired image, it is crucial to envision where you want to hang up the canvas print in your house.
Some key questions to ask yourself:
1. Where do I want to hang my canvas print in my house? It could be in the living room/bedroom/walkway etc.
2. How much wall space is available to hang my canvas print?
