How to start canvas photo printing
Canvas printing is the art of printing images be it photos paintings or drawings on to canvas this is something that can be done quite simply all you really need is a inkjet printer, the better the printer the better your results will be as there is a huge range of printers out there so make sure you get the one that is best suited to what you want to be printing and also size is a big issue, make sure you know what size you want to be printing on to. Canvas photo prints come in all shapes and sizes a lot of the large format printers or the most used are a1 printers as these are great for all canvas prints up to the a1 size you can print very long canvas prints with these but the maximum width you will be able to print on will only be 24 inches across so if you don’t think you will be printing on to canvas but won’t need a printer that can print huge canvas prints then a a1 inkjet printer will be perfect for you but if you think that you will be using the printer for canvas printing just for large canvas prints then you will want to buy a much bigger printer, they range from small to extremely large and everything in between so you are sure to find a printer that is perfect for your printing needs.
If you mainly will be making small to medium prints but think that you might need to print some large prints or even if it is half and half you would be better off to go for a larger printer as the large printers can still print small canvas photo prints and you won’t find yourself turning away customers because your printer can not print to the size the customer requires, this happened to a friend of mine and he found it very annoying a couple of large canvas print orders would have made up the difference between the small printer to the large printer so you see if you buy a small printer then have to upgrade it can be very expensive but the difference between a small and large printer will not be too expensive and then you will have a printer that can do everything you will need it to first time without finding out the hard way by buying a medium printer then finding you need to upgrade and your left with a small printer that is of no use to you.
The printers work with the aid of a computer and with any every day pc will do for this as it is really just a port from which you can send the pictures over to the printer and it is a very simple process so I will keep it simple for you. Get an image and upload it to your desktop then open up your photo shop which most pc computers these days will come with and some sort of basic photo shop on it that is all you need and if you do not have this on your computer already then you can download a version of the internet for free. Once in photo shop you will need to install the printer, this is very simple plug the printers usb lead in to the computer all printers should come with their own usb lead, when it is connected it will show up as a option to install this printer do so and you are ready to get canvas printing.
