Canvas prints are fast becoming the most popular kind of wall decor, and one of the most common questions one asks before deciding whether or not to print on canvas is what are the differences and benefits of canvas printing in relation to the traditional matte and frame printing. If you too have the same question, the following 5 reasons will help you understand why you should give canvas printing a try.

Canvas prints make perfect gifts 

If you’re looking for new personalised gift ideas, canvas prints will definitely add a touch of uniqueness to one’s home or office. Perfect for any ocasion, printing on canvas helps turn your favourite pictures into wonderful wall art that can pass down through your family through the years.

Cost effective

The traditional method of printing on paper requires matting and expensive framing, and when you’re looking at larger format prints this can cost a small fortune. Canvas printing offers you the most cost-effective way of printing your photos in any preferred size.

No glare or reflections

Traditional paper prints need to rest behind a sheet of glass which in a bright room often exhibit glare or reflection, making sometimes the photo impossible to view. With a canvas print the end result is a work of art that is unobstructed by a layer of reflective glass, offering you the flexibility of positioning it without the need for specific lighting.

Largest image size for a given wall space 

The beauty of canvas prints is that you can get any size you choose  to fit your home or office, making it a versatile choice for wall decor.

Less weight

Canvas prints are far lighter than traditionally framed prints, especially in the larger sizes, being easier to transport and to hang.
