Canvas FAQs

We can print from almost any type of photo or digital file but the best quality prints come from high resolution images (i.e. 5+ megapixel digital camera photos). Send your digital images by uploading them using the form on this page or by emailing them to us. We prefer JPEG files when being sent this way to keep the file sizes smaller. Please do not compress the image too much as this will lower the quality of the final print. If in doubt send us the original file from the camera and we will be able to crop it to your requirements.




Can I print any image onto canvas?

❯ Yes, any image can be be printed onto canvas. We can print from most types of digital files, original photos and negatives can also be used.

All material supplied will be returned with your canvas when printed.
