Some people create photo albums as a way to preserve treasured family photos. Some people scan them onto CDs so that the effects of time do not warp or ruin them.
But a growing segment of the community is choosing an alternative way to preserve the memories that are dear to them, and that is through a canvas print.
Canvas art is created through a specialized printer which requires special eight to 12 color inkjet printers containing UV-resistant ink. You want to use UV-resistant ink because if the canvas will be hung on a wall, it most likely will at some point be exposed to sunlight, which can cause it to fade. UV-resistant ink helps to slow the fading process. The printer is designed to accommodate canvas, which is heavier than most of the kinds of paper we use in our home and office printers.
The image that is intended to be reproduced into canvas art also must be one of high quality. Cameras with megapixel capabilities of 10 or higher will easily produce high-resolution photos which lend themselves to a quality canvas print.
Once you have selected the photo or digital image you wish to have transferred to canvas, the next step is to find a reputable business to perform the work.
A quick search of the internet indicates there is a multitude of print-to-canvas providers advertising their services. However, not all print-to-canvas businesses are created equal. Let's discuss a few tips that will help you to find a provider that will be able to meet your needs at a price you can afford.
