Canvas Printing

Printing on canvas is incredibly versatile and a great way to create a ready-to-hang image or artwork. Every canvas that we print  is protected with a UV coated acrylic finish to guard the print from dust, moisture and fading. Do you want your canvas stretched on bars or non-stretched? Framed or unframed? Customize the work to make it truly your own.

Stretching

We offer two different ways to create your art print on canvas as a ready to hang work of art; museum wrap (museum stretching) and gallery wrap (gallery stretching). Both canvas wrap options utilize museum quality stretcher bars providing you with a finished work. On both of our wrap choices we stretch the canvas around specialized wood bars and securely staple the canvas to the back. After the canvas is stretched, you can choose to frame the wrapped canvas with one of our specialized custom frames, or leave it exactly as is. For more information contact us.

Museum Wrap
Choosing the museum wrap option makes the entire image viewable while looking at it straight on; no part of the image is lost around the stretched edge. With our museum wrap option, we stretch the canvas around wood stretcher bars and leave a white border on the edges of the stretched canvas. If there are vital parts of the image near the edge of your art, museum wrap is the way to go.

Gallery Wrap

The gallery wrap option stretches the image around the entire width of the stretcher bars, making a portion of the image viewable from the sides. For our gallery wrap canvases, we use wood stretcher bars, so expect to lose at least an inch of the image on each side when viewing it straight on. Keep in mind that anything close to the edge of your art will be folded over the sides, so make sure to choose this option only if vital parts of the image are not close to the edge.

Photography by Laurie Barone-Shafer
Nowadays just about anyone can take a good quality photographs with a digital camera. Or take a few hundred pictures and the chances are few will be good, and even one or two outstanding.

Here are a few tips, tricks and techniques on how to make art print poster ready photographs and print ready digital files. Don’t get overwhelmed, there is a lot of information here, but a lot of it is just intuitive. Well, a bit of patience will always help.

First thing – Photo Size

If you taking a digital photo of you family or friend the largest size you would print is usually 5 by 7 inches, maybe 8 by 10 at the most. Even small size digital photographs (2MB or less) are ‘good enough’ to create a decent print. But if you want to create prints that are 16 by 20, 20 by 24 inches or larger you need more pixels (in pixels 20 by 24 inches photo is actually about 40 times larger than 3 by 4 inches photo assuming they have the same resolution).

Learning to Paint with Watercolors

By Cindy Tabacchi

ImageWatercolor is an easy, fun medium for creating art.  Color theory, composition and design can be explored freely with watercolor paint, paper, and brushes.  Several techniques may be used with watercolors for varying effects including painting wet on wet, wet on dry, layering washes, and more.

Watercolor paper comes in cold press, hot press, and rough.  Rough paper has the most texture, and its hills and valleys can result in interesting effects when paint is added.  Hot press is the smoothest and has the finest texture.  Cold press has a moderate amount of texture and is the paper most commonly chosen by watercolor artists.

Watercolor paper comes in several weights ranging from 90 lb. to 300 lb. based on the pounds per ream of paper.  Most artists prefer to use at least 140 lb. paper.  Papers vary somewhat between manufacturers, so sampling different papers is advisable.  Paper can be purchased in pads, in blocks or in large sheets.  The large sheets are usually the most economical and can be torn into whatever size is desired.
