Photo Printing on Canvas: the preferred choice for classic photo decorations

Can you imagine one of the images of your last photo session printed on a canvas with a frame and placed in a very special corner?

The truth is that in every session there are always 1 or 2 photos that stand out from the rest, they are those images in which a series of factors come together that make them almost a work of art. Now, your clients will be able to keep those special photos in a much more eye-catching format and show them off in any corner of their home as if they were an exhibition piece.

When your customers order one of your images printed on canvas, they will only have to follow these simple steps:

  • Choose the photo you like the most.
  • In the cart section, select the type of format (in this case canvas).
  • Choose the ideal size to print your photo on canvas (your customers can choose from 9 different sizes ranging from 20×30 cm to 100×100 cm).
  • Select the finish you like best (gloss varnish, matt varnish or no varnish).
  • Decide what kind of thickness you want for your canvas: thin (1.8 cm) or thicker (4.00 cm).
  • And even decide what kind of printing material they prefer (synthetic or fine art).

Do your customers already know that all canvases are mounted on a wooden frame? Your photos will become small works of art in your own home.

All photos printed on canvas will include a small back support so that customers can hang their “little work of art” comfortably on any wall in their home.


Below you will find all the information available about the finishes and materials of the printed canvases.

HD Metal Printed Images: for the most avant-garde decorations

Surprise your most exclusive clients and offer them the possibility of printing their photos, comfortably from home, on a waterproof and weatherproof HD Metal aluminium plate.

It has happened to all of us at one time or another to deal with more exclusive clients who are looking for a more sophisticated photo shoot or a more original final product than what the rest of the clients usually ask for.

It is precisely the printing of images in HD Metal that is designed for this prototype of more demanding customer who is looking for more genuine products that also respond very well to the passage of time.

With HD Metal photo printing, your customers will have very few options to choose from:

  • Decide which image you want to print.
  • In the shopping cart section, choose the type of HD Metal
  • Choose from the 12 available print sizes (from the classic 10×15 cm to 70×100 cm for a more striking decoration).
  • And choose the finish that best matches the rest of the decoration (glossy white, matt white, semi-matt white, glossy silver, matt silver).

Depending on the size of the photo printed in HD Metal format, it can be placed on a natural, brown or black wood holder or hung (for larger sizes) on an MDF plate.
