The Wonder of Canvas Prints

Hi again!

Today, we are going to share with you what canvas prints are and how they can beautify your home.

So why should we even print on canvas? Why don’t we just stick to printing on photo paper? Here’s a rather simple comparison between the two:

Printing on Canvas

  • Does not require a border/frame
  • Photo has a painted-on effect
  • Sides of the canvas are a continuation of the image (for canvas image wraps)
  • Has a 3D effect
  • Can be displayed in semi-humid environments (eg. Toilets)

Printing on Paper

  • Reflections from light can cause glare (especially for glossy finishes)
  • Details of the photos are clearly visible due to smooth surface
  • Framed prints can get quite heavy for larger sizes (depending on the frame used)

With the comparison now in place, let us now explore further on the various uses/ pros of canvas prints.

1. Big and Sophisticated Enough to be the Only Decorative Item

These glorious canvas prints are so majestic on their own that many simply hang it up on their wall as their only decorative item to suit the theme of the room. There’s no need to clutter a place up just to decorate a place. For those who want to create the image of a larger room, this is one thing you can definitely consider adding to your cart.

Not only that, canvas prints have a dreamy feel with the photo having a painted-on effect. Many couples chose to print their wedding photos eventually in canvas prints to give them a softer and frameless look.

2. One Photo, Multiple Canvases

Also known as split canvas prints, every photo is ‘cut up’ into various canvas panels. This creates a very different kind of wall art as compared to just framed up prints.

Who said only one canvas print will look good while being hung up on the wall? Create a wall collage by featuring various photos that will bring back memories. Allow your creative juices to flow, choose how you want them to be displayed! You can even draw up an image of how you would like your wall to look like, then print your canvas prints to achieve the intended result.

The borderless effect really does make the room look “cleaner” and  more contemporary. Let’s not visualise and look at the difference below!

I always knew canvas prints look amazing, but never did I know they can have such a different effect as compared to framed prints??


And for those who have the interest to design something of their own to put up on their wall, perhaps you might have heard of art jamming? (:

Search up the internet and you will find some cafes and studios that provide people with the opportunity and materials to paint their very own canvas!

These places are conducive for you to just immerse yourself into creating a new artwork that is uniquely yours. Each session can be as long as 3 hours where you won’t be rushed to complete it. What are you waiting for??


And of course, for the less artistically inclined people like me who doesn’t have that much of an interest in art jamming, you may consider just hanging up a printed canvas print that can be printed here!

Till next time, our PFF Fam (:
