Canvas prints offer photographers a new way to sell their photographic work to potential customers. Canvases have become mainstream in the high street stores over the last few years and this has created a high demand for this type of printed media. Canvas art suits interior walls very well, whether in the living room, bedroom or kitchen area. They come ready to hang so you don't have to find a frame for the picture. Nice and simple!

Photographers are very critical of print quality when using external printers so it's reassuring to know that the team behind Fotoviva Art Prints come from a photography background themselves. This means colour reproduction, materials and attention to detail are top priorities when Fotoviva print canvases. You can be assured of a high-end finish which will impress your customers. Another bonus is bespoke size printing. Often photographers will get asked for specific canvas sizes to suit a customers wall space so choosing a printer that can cater for non-standard sizes is essential.

Another option is whether to have the canvas print gallery wrapped (the image wrapping around the frame) or printed just on the front face. The materials used for canvas prints can vary greatly. Choose a cheap printer on Ebay and you may well find sub-standard frames and print quality. Fotoviva use 100% cotton canvas and UV inks that are guaranteed fade resistant for 75 years - that's gallery standard. Some printers use dye-sublimation based inks which don't result in such a good finish or durability as the pigment based UV inks. Printing with the superior inkjet giclee method also ensures colour vibrancy and fine-point detail.

Once printed, the canvas is wrapped around a strong yet lightweight wooden frame, constructed using professional stretcher bars. These are FSC approved meaning the wood comes from sustainable forests which help protect the environment.

Triptych canvases are also very popular and make a spectacular piece of wall art. Triptychs are when the picture is split across three canvas panels. The image is gallery wrapped which ensures the continuation of the image as your eye scans across the canvases. Sometimes, especially for panorama style photos, even more panels would be better suited. Fotoviva can print as many panels as you require.

With an approachable and friendly team you can be assured your photographic work of art will be dealt with professionally and quickly. Standard canvas prints take as little as 7 working days and come in protective packaging to ensure the print arrives in perfect condition. We can white label your canvas if you want it delivered direct to your customer. Fotoviva print many canvases for professional photographers as well as the general public, so contact them today and see how they can help you sell your work to a new audience.
