Canvas Printing Overview

Canvas printing is a technique that employs the Giclée Fine Art printing process, or Direct to Media UV printing process, to reproduce images directly onto canvas material. The resulting prints can be expertly stretched over a wooden frame, measuring either 30mm or 40mm in thickness which creates a three-dimensional, block-mounting effect. 

Advantages of Canvas Printing

Printing on canvas produces a tactile print and the process can be used to emulate the look and feel of traditional canvas artworks. This is particularly advantageous for artists aiming to sell editions of their original paintings or drawings. Stretched canvas prints are provided ready to hang and require no additional finishing (e.g. framing).

FAQ

As with our all of our printing services, we aim to turnaround print orders within 48 hours of your order being confirmed by a member of our Client Support Team. Turnaround times may be longer when a test print is required. Please speak to us to confirm turnaround times on large print orders or when working to tight deadlines.

Once your print has been produced on canvas we then either professionally stretch over a 30mm or 40mm thick wooden frame (creating a 3 dimensional, block-mounting effect), ready to hang, or frame the print to your exact specifications using our bespoke framing services. The choice is yours!

Your files can be sent to us using our handy upload form, via email, or using services such as Dropbox or Wetransfer. Once you’ve sent your files to us we will contact you to confirm your order.

Our preferred choice of colour profile for the best possible photographic printing with our very carefully controlled ICC workflow is Adobe RGB (1998), although we do accept files in other colour profiles- if in doubt, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 020 7384 6200.

You can also download our Lambda Profile to see a fairly accurate softproof preview of the printed output on your screen (if your monitor is properly calibrated). We calibrate our Lambda Colour Profile frequently so please download the latest version from the link above.

After downloading the profile of your choice simply drop it into the following folder on your mac – / Library / ColorSync / Profiles folder or the / Users / username / Library / ColorSync / Profiles folder. Then restart Photoshop, open your image and choose from the top menu Edit > Assign Profile. In the dialogue box that appears select the Lambda profile from the Profile drop menu. This temporarily assigns the Lambda profile to the image without converting colours to the profile space. You can permanently assign the Lambda Profile to your image by choosing from the top menu Edit > Convert to Profile and then from the dialogue box that appears choose the Lambda Profile from the Destination Space Profile drop menu.

For PC users the path to place the Lambda profile in is WINDOWS system32 spool drivers colour folder.

If you have any questions about colour profiles please feel free to call and one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be pleased to help you.

As a general guide for colour prints on either our Giclée or Lambda printers, your images should be in RGB, any layers flattened and preferably saved as a Tiff file (.tif) with LZW compression. This will maximize the quality of your image and also keep the file size down. Other file formats are acceptable such as a layered tiff or photoshop document (.psd) but these will have an inherently larger file size. Jpegs (.jpg) are fine for smaller prints but because of their image lossy nature it is not recommended that you save any files in this format. Images shot as in-camera Jpegs are once again mostly suited to small to medium prints. Naturally we are also happy to accept RAW camera files. Once again, please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions about file formats for photographic prints.

We check all files prior to printing and will call you should we notice any loss of quality at the print size you require.

As a rule of thumb – the larger the print size required, the larger the file size must be. There is however some leeway with the image resolution or dpi and how our Giclée or Lambda printers deal with this. For instance: if your image file is approximately 20MB at 400 dpi it will make an excellent print at A5 size. The same 20MB file will still make an excellent 10×8” print at 300 dpi, and a very good 16×12” print at 200 dpi. If you are in any doubt, go for a higher resolution for the print size required. Please contact us if you need any further assistance with file sizes for photographic prints.
