Canvas printing is vastly used in our current economical climate from people printing their image and photos on canvas to purchasing canvas art of famous artists like Andy Warhol or Picasso replica wall art and lots of us are purchasing or canvas art and canvas photo prints from online shops but actually were did canvas prints and canvas printing originate from and how come is so popular in our lives today.

Canvas was giving its name firstly in the 13th century and it wasn’t really recognised until around the year 1410 which was when the French Madonna with angels was first recorded as before this time canvas was commonly used for other accessories which was made from linen or cotton. Canvas is used for printing on and not only this but it is also used for painting on to which was its used before printing. There is plenty of different different types of canvas and here is a few different examples for you, you can have fire proof canvas or you can get water resistant canvas and even dye canvas, the type of canvas that is used for canvas printing would be the more modern inkjet canvas and this is what is used worldwide today.

The canvas print became very ripe in the 1990s and it was then when it became a dominate force in the wall decoration markets and we all know that canvas has been used for many hundreds of years through paintings and have been appreciated this way for a long time which it truly deserves but with modern technology coming in and the creating of large format printers along came the inkjet canvas which is use for all printing preferences in today’s markets. The inkjet canvas is commonly rolled and is placed in a printer which is fed through the printer wile a print head will spray pigment inkjet ink onto which would create the digital image from the computer it was connected to. This is the making of a great canvas print and it all start firstly with the canvas being at the heart of the making.

So canvas printing has made s big impact and it seems it was only recent that the technology was founded that we could print digital images onto canvas from our computers and its definitely something that will stay around forever and it’s something that isn’t like your average painting but better in a different since because it is unique like a painting and is also hung similar t a painting, that only thing I would say that it’s better that a painting would be that you can pick a canvas print up allot cheaper these days than an original painting as allot of time an effort goes into a painting were as yes these some expertise that goes into the making of a canvas print the process is a lot easier and less time consuming, and you can also end up with the same effect as an original painting to.
