Using Canvas Wall Art to Decorate Your Home

Canvas Press makes it easy for you to create and customize your very own original canvas wall art. There are so many options and ideas floating around out there for you to take and make your own. We thought we would grab a few of those and list them here to give you a spring-board for inspiration for your own piece of art.

A CLOSER LOOK

Easily customize your photos for canvas prints.

Customize Your Photos

Cropping can change your photo - panoramic, crop tight for unique (possibly abstract) art.

Create a border style all your own - If you have a favorite color don't hold back put that color on the sides of each of your canvas with our Color Border Option. Or pull a color that compliments your photo to print on the sides of the canvas.

If you have advanced skills you can create your own borders. You will need Photoshop for this. If you don't have Photoshop and you are curious about creating unique borders for your next order of canvas prints you can contact us.

Canvas Wall Art for Any Size Wall

What size space do you need to fill? Are you in a dorm and only have enough space for a 12"x19" canvas? Or do you have a wall that needs a large statement piece? How does 60"x50" sound? The answer to all of these questions is, Yes! It doesn't matter what size wall you have. We have the solution with custom sized canvas wall art. We can fit a canvas in that 23"x41" niche in your hallway without a problem.

Framing your canvas prints.

Canvas Print vs. Framing a Photo

Putting a 4"x6" photo print into a frame isn't such a big deal. Take the back out, and pop the photo right in. That isn't really the type of framing we are talking about. The real cost can come in when you want to get something custom framed. With the matting and frame the framing is often ten times more than the cost of the photo print. We invite you to do a price comparison of a canvas print of the same size before going the framed route.

    Added benefits are:

  • Canvas is much lighter than a framed print
  • Don't have to worry about glass breaking when hanging or caring for the print.
  • Instead of breaking out the glass cleaner to clean the inside and outside of the frame just do a little light dusting on the top of the canvas.
  • Storing unused frames can be troublesome (dealing with that glass). Canvas prints can easily stack on top of each other.

Create a Wall Gallery

Canvas prints look fantastic when they are in a wall gallery. Again, the creativity is all up to you. But of course we are here to lend a helping hand if you get stuck or don't know where to start. Take a measurement of the wall you want to create a gallery on then choose the photos you want to include. Your wall gallery can range from uniform to eclectic. We can help give you some inspiration with some design ideas or we can even look at your photos and design it for you if you would like that kind of help.

You might be surprised at the size and quality of canvas wall art we can print from the photos on your phone and even your Instagram photos. Since you applied those artistic effects to your Instagram photos, why not choose a few of your favorites and create some wall art that reflects your artistic style.

You can upload and order from us directly from your device. Or email yourself the photos (always choose "Actual Size" or the highest possible file size when emailing the photos for print purposes). If you have a question about the possible print size for a photo from your phone we are happy to take a look and recommend a size.
