We can accept a wide variety of raster and vector formats for canvas printing including JPEG, TIFF, EPS and PDF
. For a sharp, crisp print it is recommended to send the original file and not one that has been shrunk in any way. If your artwork is more of an illustration you might want to consider using a vector format instead.
When selecting an image, it its important to look for one with some dead space
around the main subject as this will be used in the wrap around of the frame. However, if you have an image you wish to use that doesnt not have this dead space we can mirror the edges for you so none of your main image will be lost.
It is also important to consider the aspect of your image against your choice of frame, if these dont match nicely there will be some cropping of your image especially long thin frames or square frames. If your image doesnt fit the frame then we will crop your image for you, keeping the main subject in place.
Please see the images below for examples of Portrait, Landscape and Square images and how some can be successfully cropped to fit different shaped frames, whilst others don't work quite as well. The yellow line on each print indicates where you can expect the image to come to on the canvas edge, taking the wrap for the edges into account. This will vary, depending on the size of your chosen image and canvas.
Physical print test proof prints from your artwork can be provided at a small charge.
