A mounted canvas print is an image printed from an inkjet printer onto canvas. Once printed, the canvas gets stretched onto a frame. Some people opt for a frameless border while others prefer framed canvas prints. To create an unframed canvas print, many use the gallery-wrapping technique. During this process, the canvas is wrapped around the stretcher bars and secured to the frame.
There is common confusion between mounted prints, acrylic prints and canvas prints. A mounted print is a paper print attached to a backing board. The emphasis of this print is to preserve the photo and prepare it for framing or hanging on a wall.
An acrylic print takes an image printed on photographic paper. The image is then placed between sheets of acrylic, often referred to as plexiglass. When comparing the three types of prints, mounted canvas prints evoke an artistic feel. This is because they’re similar in appearance to oil and acrylic paintings.
Photography has come a long way since developing film in a darkroom with photographic paper. Yet printing on paper is still the traditional method that many people trust. To get a better understanding of printing on mounted canvas we invite you to take into consideration few of its advantages.
Being so familiar with printing on paper we will start by telling you that printing on canvas will make you avoid:
- a glare of reflection caused by sunlight
- the high cost of framing large sizes of paper
- the impossibility of printing artwork
- damages when steam or water is involved
Printing on mounted canvas advantages
We’re conditioned to seeing art completed on canvas. Because of this, printing on canvas is the preferred choice when going for a “painted” effect. Mounted canvas prints enhance many decor styles with the contemporary gallery-wrapped edges. For large prints, canvas is the more affordable option that also outlasts paper because of the durable plain weaving.
Unlike paper prints that you can swap out of a frame, canvas prints are permanent.
When it’s time for a wall decor update, canvas prints are a simple way to transform your walls. They add texture and a stylish visual aesthetic. Whether you select one or more large mounted canvas, they’ll enrich the colors and furniture in any room.
