Further Photos On Canvas Information

 

As all canvas prints are handmade items, the end result can differ greatly, it takes years of experience to print and manufacture high quality canvas art. Our team is lead by our very own fine arts graduate who understands customers needs. We haven't just arrived in the photo canvas marketplace, for us photos on canvas compliment our huge range of photo printing products.

 

Printing Process & The Canvas - the best photographic canvas available on the market today is used at Fotofast. We are constantly trialling and sourcing canvas from USA and Europe. We do not use inferior cheap canvas from Asia and other countries.

 

Image resolution - As canvas is a woven surface it often effectively masks pixelation and compression artifacts in less than ideal resolution files. Dependant on an images subject matter we can often produce amazing quality canvas from resolutions as low as 72dpi (dots per inch). 300 dpi will produce the highest level of detail perceptible. Jpeg files. sRGB or Adobe(1998) RGB Profiles. Where possible submit original files and try not to reduce or enlarge the file when editing pre submission.

 

Life Span Of Canvas Art Prints & Green Technology - Fotofast use the very latest "green" printing technology. Our prints will last many generations, over 80 years. This new technology gives a finished product that is water resistant unlike many budget canvas producers. It can easily be wiped with a clean damp cloth.

 

Colour Quality - we are a photographic lab with over 20 years experience in colour management.This is the most important aspect of the printing process, it involves the calibration of both printers, monitors and especially the photo papers and canvas. This can only be achieved with the specialist technology and trained operators. We can tweak your image (choose image enhancement option) to ensure that the best possible quality print from your photo is achieved.

 

Monitor settings - can give very different results and totally change look and feel of images displayed on the web. It is worth checking your monitor is excessively bright or over contrasted and the colour balance is set to normal to give the best indication of the final printed result. We use specialist equipment to make sure that our computer monitors have no colour bias and are calibrated regularly.

 

The Frame - the ideal stretch frame for canvas prints is kiln dried wood as it is light weight and does not warp with heat as all the moisture has already been removed, this provides for the most stable frame choice. We use New Zealand plantation grown pine for a professional finish. Canvas photos are much lighter than traditionally framed prints without the need for glass, making them much easier to transport when you move home.
