  • Photos on canvas, the perfect birthday gift, can be easily created thanks to canvas printing technology. A canvas print is a facet of canvas art which displays images across a stretched canvas which then wraps around a frame. Canvas art is easily displayed in an interior region with the use of customised photographs or paintings.

    Canvas prints have become increasingly popular through the integration of stock images or reproductions of artwork on canvas. While the print material remains cotton, many of the large canvas reprints measure 1.5 metres. With improved printing methods, many canvas prints can be printed directly onto any material, thus allowing artists to augment their photos or reproduced artwork and print it directly onto the media without diminishing any of the existing quality.

    While inexpensive cotton is often used to create the canvas, the use of pure white cotton allows for the colour representation to print with precision. After printing the image, the canvas can be stretched and stapled to the wooden panel through the use of stretcher bars wherein it is glued down and displayed. The use of solid pine for the wooden panel provides additional strength. If the printed image is meant to convey a traditional three dimensions often associated with the use of mounted canvas artwork, then the printed image is often wrapped around the edges in the full-bleed effect.

    Canvas prints have become a widely popular birthday gift idea for your home or for others. Thanks to the internet online photo to canvas creations can be ordered in minutes so there is no need to panic if you forgot about a certain birthday, or have just lacked the time to purchase a gift until the last minute. If you do not have a personal photo you want to print for the birthday photos on canvas you can select from a wide range of banksy street art converted to banksy canvas prints, or you can select from a wide range of vintage poster prints. You can also customise bus destination scrolls or tram scrolls from replica 1950s and 1960s signs, fitted with your personal wording.

    Nothing is more unique for a birthday present than personalised canvas photos, especially when you help your loved one remember their birthday with a personal photo. Canvas photos can also be divided into a photo collage so that multiple events can be combined to send a single message: happy birthday.

  • A question we often get asked by our customers is what wrap is best for my photo on canvas? In this article we all shed some light on the choices available and how to make this decision.

    A wrap, border or bleed are all names for the edge of your stretched canvas print. This is the 3.5cm edge of the canvas that Eœwraps around the wooden stretcher frame. Making the right choice of wrap will have a big impact on your photo on canvas.

    Blue Horizon Printing offers 5 standard choices plus more if required. These are: Blur wrap, Gallery wrap, Mirror wrap, Plain wrap (white or black). See below for a picture of all 5 styles.

    Choices of wrap for canvas print

    Choices of wrap for canvas print

    A Gallery wrap uses the image itself to wrap around the frame. Using a Gallery wrap means that you will lose part of the image as it will wrap around the edges of the print. This means that if you have detail at the edge of a canvas that you dont want to lose from the front of the image then this is probably not the right choice for you.

    A mirror wrap is the answer to this problem as it ‘mirrors’ or copies the last 3.5cm of the image and duplicates it around the edge of the canvas print. This work extreemly well in many instances but can occasionally be the wrong choice. (dont worry – we wouldnt actually print an image that looks like the one below, we would inform the customer that it is the wriong choice).

    The image below shows an example of a bad and good mirror wrap:

    bad gallery wrap

    bad gallery wrap

    Good Mirror wrapAs you can see, the boys face has been ‘mirrored’ around the edge of the canvas print border and has caused the print to look ‘distorted’. Dont worry – we wouldnt actually print an image that looks like the one below, we would inform the customer that it is the wrong choice and advise on a better choice.

    The fern canvas print however mirrors the fern fronds and looks great, if this had been a regular gallery wrap a lot of the fern would have been lost around the edges.

    Another very popular option is the blur wrap, this is a good choice when neither the gallery or mirrored wrap can be used (often in portrait photography for example). The blurred edge does exactly what the name implies and uses the colours near the edge of the border asnd blurs them into the picture. It is a good alternative to simply keeping the edges plain.

    Last but not least you can choose to keep the borders plain white or black (or if you let us know we can offer other colours such as reds, greens etc). The plain wrap is effective for classic reproductions for artwork, for example most of the modern art we offer on the website uses plain white or black borders.

    The final decision is always our customers but we are happy to help you make up your mind. If we feel that the wrap choice you have made isnt the right one then we are happy to let our customers know which we believe is a better choice.
