Choose one of these popular papers to make your photo or art work look its best

Ultra premium photo luster paper

Produces the widest range of colors and the densest black for vivid color reproduction. This paper looks most like actual photographs and is a popular standard for most of our photography gallery work.

Fine art textured watercolor paper

Our heavy, highly textured watercolor paper is made with a 100% cotton rag base, buffered and acid free, and coated with Enhanced Matte coating for bright, clear colors. It produces the deepest blacks of any cotton digital paper. The velvet surface is a favorite of photographers and artists alike, offering a unique museum-quality feel. Cathy uses it for her favorite abstract photo because the thick layers of this paper allows her tear wide edges to frame the image in white for a special look.

Our thinner watercolor paper has a smoother texture for an extreme matte finish look. It is an economical paper and lies flatter. The colors are a perfect match for artwork, and provides excellent sharpness. Ask to see samples printed in each style of paper.

Canvas printing (choice of matte or glossy UV coating)

Premium Giclée Canvas has the unique texture of a true fine-art look with an extremely broad range of colors. Its bright white surface makes the your images pop off the canvas. This is the ideal canvas for artists looking to reproduce prints that are virtually identical to the original, as well as water resistant and stretchable for framing. All canvas prints are sprayed with a UV coating.

Bring us your art in any form or size and we will reproduce it to your needs. Continue to paint on the print to make it unique.

Wrapped edge styles

  1. Usually, we make a mirror copy around the outer edge of your image that wraps around the sides of the stretcher bar. This makes it look as though your image continues around the sides to the back of the frame, but does not use up any of your image. This is usually the best way to print it for stretching. From the sides, you will see what looks like a continuation of the image as shown on the right.
  2. We can also add a black or white border to your image that wraps around the sides that are not facing the viewer. From the sides, the edges of your image will be all black or all white.
  3. Use the image to continue around the sides to behind the print. However, this will use up the sides of your image so that the area visible from the front will be reduced (so that it looks like it is cropped).

All canvases that are printed large enough to allow, will be finished with a ‘Gallery Wrap’ corner that is folded professionally so it does not show at the sides.

Canvas stretching

We can stretch any canvas around our high-quality custom molding.

Cost is $11.50 CI ($14.03 USD) per linear foot of standard 7/8″ molding and $13.00 CI ($15.85 USD) per foot for 2″ molding (needed for large canvas or preferred for the artistic effect of a thicker molding).

Measure the size of the image that you want showing. Remember that it takes about two inches of material to wrap around the molding. If there is less, it can still be stretched and stapled to the side of the molding rather than the back. If there is an all or partial white border showing along the sides of the frame, some people then paint this black or a matching colour so that it looks better.

Canvas is professionally folded around the corners in the technique called “Gallery wrap.”

Stretching prices includes hanger and rubber spacers on the bottom corners to protect your wall.
