FAQ

  • How long will the canvas last?

    The canvas material we use is archival quality and has a specifically designed coating for superior color gamut and resolution. Canvases are only intended for indoor use, but even in display of direct window light should still last for decades to come if cared for properly.

  • How do I clean my canvas?

    The canvases are quite durable should resist most scratches, smudges, fingerprints, etc. You can dust canvases with a soft, dry cloth. If your canvas is damaged and needs deeper cleaning you may try a damp cloth. If the canvas gets nicked and loses ink in a certain areas it can be touched up with felt–tip markers or paint.

If you must send a file format not accepted online or a file larger than 20MB please call us for assistance and instructions.

  • How do I know if my photo is good enough to print?

    Our online design tool has a sophisticated image resolution detector. If you load a file it will indicate that your image is "good". If your image appears to be below that you may want to upload a larger file. If you do not have a larger file and need our designers to improve the image resolution we offer this service as minor retouching.

  • What if I am attempting to find images on the Internet?

    Many images online are low resolution and are not intended for printing. However, one way to filter for higher quality images is by going to the image section within the Google search engine. You would search for the item, and then click on "Show Options" and then on the left hand side choose "Large" or "Medium." If you're unable to locate an appropriate image, we do offer assistance with sourcing stock images. Contact us for a quote.

  • I have my own scanner what setting should I use?

    Depending on how large the print is and how large you want to go you should scan from 800 to 2400 dpi. Be sure to crop to just the image area so that the scanner surface is not included. Some scanners include software to remove dust and scratches automatically, if you still see a lot of imperfections and spots on the digital file you can add Minor Retouching to the order and we will remove that.

  • What printing technology and canvas do you use?

    Our prints are giclee prints made from archival inks. The canvas is a cotton-based material. The finished product has a semi-gloss surface.

  • What is the best way to hang a canvas?

    Canvases 24x36 and larger are provided with Beehive Hanger and an instruction sheet for hanging. Smaller canvases have saw-tooth hangers installed on the back of the frame. You may choose to add your own hardware if you have a preference for how to hang your artwork. Have a level handy – the beehives make it easy to readjust an image to be level, but you still need a level to make sure everything is set correctly.

    When hanging art, the general rule of thumb is to have the center of the piece at the average persons eye–level. Galleries will often hang the center of the art from 60" – 66". If your canvas will hang over a piece of furniture just take that into consideration when hanging.

  • What stretching options are available?

    We have several options for your finished canvas prints. All canvas are wrapped around a wooden stretcher frame with finished sides. The sides will be a continuation of your image, a mirror of your image or a solid color depending on your selection. These styles are available in two sizes 3/4" 1.5". The 3/4" option is also called that "Standard Stretch" canvas and can be used to fit into a decorative frame.
