Although our prints have a UV protective laminate on them, no canvas should ever be hung in direct sunlight for extended lengths of time. In addition, while we use a water-resistant coating it is not 100% waterproof.

What do canvas prints look like?
Canvas prints are a way to bring your photos to life. Your image gets printed onto fine art canvas and stretched out over a solid wooden frame, giving it a textured, painterly look and feel. As it’s printed onto archival-grade canvas, and finished with UV-resistant varnish, there’s no glare as you get from a framed photograph. Canvas prints are generally finished without an external frame, so the image extends right to the edge of the canvas and around to the sides, giving it a cleaner, and more three-dimensional look. Needless to say, we love them, so have a look at our range here and see what we can do for you.
