Posted: Dec 29, 2015
Photos can help you remember precious moments and cherish them for posterity. Today there are many ways and means for preserving photographs. The awesome framed canvas photos are very popular today. If you are a fan of larger photographs and the poster and other vivid mementos, then you will simple love the picture canvas and the printing of photos on canvas. In some cases the artists and painters prefer paintings to canvas photo prints. But the photos on canvases are fast catching up. Many people who love posters are slowing but surely turning to canvas prints. The photographs printed on canvases are improved upon by the artists by using gel brush stroke and other painting techniques to make the final product large, clear and stunning.
People love canvas prints not due to the cost factor as the picture canvases are of superior quality and the materials used to create these canvas photo prints are not cheap. So it is not the cost that is the reason for people preferring printing photos on canvas over poster and other such options, Canvas prints are normally stretched tightly around a wooden frame thus making it very sturdy and durable. The frame itself will be a part of the canvas print and not something that is placed around the photo canvas to preserve the picture. The frame also ensures that you are able to hang the framed canvas photo print anywhere you like. In poster the paper used is not very durable so artists rarely use expensive inks on them. But with canvas it is very different, as the canvas is very durable, good expensive inks are used. Thus the canvas prints are made with lovely and lasting shades of wonderful colors. They last for years and continue to look beautiful even after many years.
A lot of care and skill is required while printing photos on canvas. Once the canvas print is ready, a very special kind of sealer is used on top of the canvas so that it is protected and sealed well. The inks that are used on framed canvas photos are UV resistant and also moisture resistant. In contrast the inks that are used on posters are not water resistant and tend to fade rapidly when exposed to sun or bright light. It is therefore no surprise that the avid collectors today prefer canvas prints for all their larger photo requirements. These large canvas prints have wonderful and rich colors, which can also be made to look muted and soft depending on the photograph and your own tastes. The canvas has the capacity to take in the colors and create very small areas of light and shadows when the picture is printed on the canvas. This is the reason for the subtle changes that you notice on framed canvas prints, when you change the lighting, the viewing position or the position of the canvas prints itself. The texture of the print to canvas is so wonderful that you can make any photograph ‘pop’ of the canvas. This can make them look extremely unique and exclusive.
