Why is our Canvas better than the Other Guys?
Unlike many other print shops in Canada that use low quality, chemically unstable canvas that is made in China and India. Our Canvas Prints are manufactured in London, Ontario using premium 380 gsm archival grade, 60/40 poly/cotton blend canvas which features a fine canvas weave to enhance image clarity. Our canvas is custom coated in-house and whitened which is environmentally safe.
Our Canvas Photos do last a lifetime
Canvas n’ Décor Canvas Prints are guaranteed not to fade up to 200 years. Each canvas photo print is laminated with a protective UV laminate. Our laminate consists of UV inhibitors to prevent fading, scratches and blistering. It is available in either a matte or low-luster finish. We do not use cheap spray or aqueous coatings as they crack and yellow over time leaving your print unprotected like the other guys.
What do I get with my Canvas Print
Canvas Gallery Wrap
All of our canvas prints are gallery wrapped, meaning the canvas photo is wrapped around the frame and stapled along the back of the frame so the staples remain hidden. Gallery wraps are available in two different thicknesses, 3/4" (thin gallery) and 1 3/4" (thick gallery).
Canvas Photo Print Quality
Each canvas photo is printed at the highest dpi resolution to provide exceptional image clarity, vibrancy and smooth gradations. We use Canon OEM archival ink technology which provides very large color gamut, higher d-max and greatly enhances print permanence.
Perfect Canvas Stretching
Stretching a perfect canvas on a frame or stretcher bars is an art. We hand-stretch and gallery wrap each canvas meticulously by applying perfect folded corners onto custom-cut Canadian wood stretch-bar frames. All of our wood frames derive from renewal forests throughout Canada.
Canvas Print Material
Your photo is printed on premium quality, North American made, 380 gsm, matte poly/cotton blend canvas with authentic texture. Our canvas is water resistant and can withstand humid environments so you don’t have to worry about it losing its tension over time.
Canvas Hanging Accessories
Each canvas print comes ready to hang out of the box. Small canvas prints are equipped with gator hangers.
Large canvas prints have a heavy duty picture frame hanging wire hardware installed.
Canvas Art Protection
Your Photo Canvas is protected with an ArtShield UV laminate. This protects your canvas from scratches, fading and makes it easier to clean. In accelerated tests conducted by Wilhelm Imaging Research, Inc., the combination of our canvas, ink and UV laminate resulted in our Canvas Prints lasting 200 years.
Beautify your Canvas Print with Floater Frames
We offer canvas floater frames for every size of Canvas Print available. Once you have uploaded your photo and selected your canvas size and finishing options. You will have the option to choose from of our Canadian floater frame options. They are available in two popular colors, black and white.

Stylish Wrap Styles for your Canvas Photos
The composition of your photo is not entirely preserved on the face of the canvas as some elements of the photo wraps over the sides of the print. We do not recommend this option for tightly cropped photos.
The composition of your photo is preserved on the face of the canvas. 1-2 inches of the outer perimeter of the photo is reflected onto the wrap. The refection then flows over the sides of the print.
White / Black Border
The composition of your photo is preserved on the face of the canvas. A white or black border is applied along all sides of the print and the image does not flow over the sides of the print.

Canvas Photo Requirements, Aspect Ratio & Colour Profiling
Checking your Image Quality
When you upload your photos through our online image uploader, the built-in photo processor utilizes a quality score check mechanism which compares the resolution of your digital photo and chosen print size. If the image resolution is low, a notification will immediately appear. In such cases we highly recommend that you choose a smaller print size.
When an a smaller size is chosen and the “low resolution” notification disappears, our system considers your image to be of adequate quality for the chosen print size. In the event that we do receive an image that does not meet our high quality standards, our customer care team will contact you to get obtain a higher resolution copy or alternative image prior to proceeding to production.
If you have any questions or require assistance, please contact us.
What is the maximum file size I should upload?
You can upload files up to 512 MB. Yes that’s huge! Basically, even if each of your photos were 120 megapixels you still would have lots of space per upload. Before uploading verifying that you are indeed uploading a JPEG as your transfer time will be shortened greatly. If you are transferring a large TIFF file, please be aware that transfer times are dependent on your internet connection speed, so it could a little while to complete uploading.
If you have encounter difficulties uploading your photos, please contact us for assistance.
Aspect Ratios and how it affects your photo cropping
When we look at photograph’s aspect ratio, we are comparing the width value to the height. So if we were measuring a 4 x 6 image, the aspect ratio would be 3:2 because longest side is 1.5 times as long as the short side.
Now let’s say you wanted this printed in an 8 x 10 format. This could be done but the photo would have to be cropped because there is an aspect ratio mismatch. Remember a 4 x6 has a ratio of 3:2 and an 8 x 10 has 5:4. To avoid any form of cropping you would have to change the print size to an 8 x 12 which has the same aspect ratio if 3:2.
Which file types should I upload?
Our online image processor and design tool accepts JPEG, TIFF & PNG file types tool however, we highly prefer JPEG as it provides you the best real-time proofing experience. We designed our image processor around this file type because the majority of digital cameras and smartphones capture and save photography in this same file format. JPEG are excellent produce superb print results, minimize file transfer time and also embed your desired ICC color profiling.
Color Space & ICC Color Profiles
Our photo printing is done using the RGB colour space. Please ensure that you upload images in the RGB colour space with an RGB colour profile otherwise colour shifting can occur. We accept all of the popular RGB colour profiles, to list a few: sRGB IEC61966-2.1, Adobe 1998 RGB, ProPhoto RGB, etc…
For B/W or greyscale photos as we generally recommend you convert them to the Greyscale colour space.
