Canvas prints are a very versatile way to decorate your home or office, and they are easy to switch out when you want to update your look. Therefore they are also great value for money!

Stretched or Unstretched?

A stretched canvas is a when the images are printed onto the canvas, and then the canvas is stretched around a wooden frame. The frame will be either 23mm or 50mm. A stretched canvas is ready to hang right away.

An unstretched canvas is one that has been printed, but not stretched around a frame. It can roll up and transport easily. This is great if you are giving the canvas as a gift and have to post it.

Archival Ink and Canvas

The canvas and ink used are both archival. This means that they are guaranteed to last anywhere between 80 and 100 years! The lifespan is dependant, though, on how the print is stored, if it is in direct sunlight and the way the point is handled.
