Wall Art Quality Guide

Canvas art prints are handmade items, the end result can differ greatly it takes years of experience to print and manufacture high quality wall art. This quick guide will inform you of all the important factors to look out for.


The Canvas

Canvas quality can vary greatly from different manufactures. A vivid bright white surface is the best medium as this does not affect or degrade any of the colours being printed and delivers the most vivid results - with high levels of depth and contrast.


Colour

The most important aspects of the printing process is colour management, which involves the calibration of printers and monitors. So that the end result matchs with the image displays on our website. This can only be achieved with specialist technology such as a Spectrophotometer. This carefully measures the densities in each area of the colour spectrum and calibrates the printing system accordingly.

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 not over contrasted and the colour balance is set to normal.


The Frame

The ideal frame for canvas wall art 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 and should not twist or warp over time.


Printing Process

Some of the best wall art available on the market today is printed using inkjet technology, The more colours used in the printing process the higher level of detail and contrast can be achieved, this process is commonly called giclée. Other methods generally offer less-vivid colour and durability.


Image Resolution

A print can only be as good as the source it is printed from; the industry standard is 300 dpi which is used in all professional media. So a resolution of 300 dpi onto a fine grade canvas will produce the highest level of detail.


Life Span Of Canvas Wall Art

The latest Ultra chrome UV inks provide enhanced lightfastness and durability over dye-based inks, UV inks contain light stabilisers and under right conditions can keep prints looking new for anything up to 200+ years.
