Printing Canvas vs Photo Paper Questions

Canvas vs Photo Paper Framing Payments And Shipping


            These are some of the questions I get asked when  clients  orders prints.  What is the different between canvas wraps, canvas rolls or canvas floating frame?  Can we print glossy vs matte on photo paper?   What kind of payments can we make?  I will explain each one below.  I accept PayPal, Money Orders, Cash, or E-Transfers.  All pricing on my website is with taxes and shipping included.    Shipping costs are from my developer in Toronto directly to my home address where I examine each print and personally sign.   There is free delivery or pickup in and around the local Caledonia area.  There is additional delivery costs outside the  Caledonia area.  Please contact me with your mailing address along with the postal code/zip code so I can calculate the price.  If ordering a print through me rather then my website, please contact me with what gallery name, along with the image numbers.  Also, when ordering canvases or photo paper prints through me, I require a small deposit first before all orders are sent in to my developer.  For canvases there is either a $50 deposit or full payment,  $25 deposit for photo paper prints or full payment.   If you have any further questions about photo shoots, printing, pricing, or shipping please contact me.

Canvas Printing

            My Developer uses standard canvas for printing.  There are three ways of mounting canvases. These types are canvas wrap, canvas roll and canvas floating frame.  Canvas wraps come as a thickness of 1 1/2″ (samples below).  With canvas wraps no framing is needed. Once ordered, they are ready to hang.  All four sides have the picture “wrapped” around the edges.  The canvas roll is printed on canvas (sample below).   Once printed the roll is shipped out with your image on it.  When delivered, it’s ready for the frame you choose.  With canvas rolls you should never add a matte or glass to your frame , (frame only) as it takes away from the oil painting look and keeps it looking  simple and clean.  The last is the canvas floating frame (sample below).  My developer will print your image on canvas then mount that canvas on a floating black frame. The look is incredible and professionally done.  All canvases are sprayed for Ultraviolet  to reduce fading.  Please contact me below for pricing for the canvas floating frame, along with your choice of sizes.  All canvases are personally signed by me before delivery to you.

Photo Paper

The most common type of photo paper is both ‘photo matte finish’ and the ‘photo glossy finish’


 For pricing frames/custom framing needs, please contact me with the sizes, either with single, or double matting, also, all frames come with a glass.
