Canvas photo printing and how to make them

By Andrew Bourke Subscribe to RSS | May 10th 2012 | Views:

Have you ever wondered how to go about making canvas photo prints, it’s really easy if you have a little spare time and the right knowhow and I’m going to give you a few tips and trick on how to produce your very own canvas print.

If you have a little bit of money spare but you have a lot to use for a canvas print online because sometimes depending on where you purchase your canvas prints they can be a little expensive but if you shop around then there is some very competitive website out there that can give you a very great product and service for a great deal, but if you just wanted to try out having a canvas print done on your own then one way would be to purchase jut the canvas from the professional canvas printer and this will take out allot of the cost of actually having to make the canvas and the cost for the frames to, then once you have the piece of canvas all you have to do is order then frame that you need from a stretcher bar frames website and then you can frame it yourself. It’s ok as you can purchase stretcher bar frame in qtys of 1 and twos so you don’t have to buy a whole box of them just to get your one frame that you wanted so that’s good news.

So once you have your canvas with your chosen image on it and you have the correct size stretcher bars frames then all you have to do is staple the canvas to the frame with a staple gun. Firstly though before ordering the size peace of canvas that you want you need to make sure that the canvas photo has more image on it than you need so that you have room for the wrap around the frame so that you have some canvas to play with when stapling it to the back of the frame. Normally you would have to add the thickness of the frame plus 2cm at the back of the frame, so let’s say you have an 18mm deep frame you would need to add 4cm either side plus another 4cm for the back. That would be 8cm in circumference more image that you would need to be able to get the job done correctly.

It is allot of effect to put a canvas print together yourself if you have no expertise but it can save you allot of money and who knows it might go on to be a hobbies or even a little bit of a pocket money for yourself to as you could offer this service to your friends and family to and the first canvas print you made yourself will end up paying for itself. It’s simple but can be time-consuming and if you do have a little extra money then I would recommend the professionals do the job for you, it takes out all the fuss and also this way you will know for sure that the job will be done correctly to, and that it will be delivered looking amazing.
