We’ve recently received a few messages asking if we print on canvas so we’re going to take this opportunity to go on the record and say Yes, we sell canvas prints! We’ve officially had Canvas Prints in our shop since March 2016. It’s not your fault you didn’t know that—we should be shouting it from the rooftops! Since they’ve grown more popular over the past year, we’re going to let canvas take center stage like it deserves and tell you all about why we love Canvas Prints so much. With a rich history, there’s a reason they’re one of the most popular types of photo prints for professional photographers, interior designers, hobby photographers, families, and really anybody who wants a unique, affordable print. You could make your own canvas print but if you’re looking for a Canvas Print that looks polished and professional but doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, look no further. Social Print Studio to the rescue.
1. High quality
Our Canvas Prints are the cream of the crop/top of the line/premo of canvas prints. Back in 2016, when we started printing on canvas, we realized there were a million different options for the type of ink, size, border, stretcher bar depth, and float frame one could use for their canvas prints. We did the tough work of sampling and testing all of them and decided the best of the best was:
In short, they’re thick, textured, and premium-feel. Our Canvas Prints are gorgeous and we’re dang proud of them, especially at their competitive price point. (More on that later!)
Tip: If you’re not as versed on print terminology, giclee printing is a type of printing method for fine art or photograph reproduction using a high-quality inkjet printer. A giclee print is one of the nicest ways to display your art, photographs, and illustrations. We 10/10 recommend giclee prints!
When you print on canvas, you’re going to get a different look than if you’d printed on Professional Kodak paper in our Modern Frame or you’d printed a large format print and hung it with wooden hangers. Canvas Prints have a traditional look that a lot of people love for landscapes, family pictures, or wedding portraits. They’re also known for their texture, so they can really warm up a space. And because they’re three dimensional, they look great on a gallery wall. You can see Canvas Prints in the wild in our Marketing Manager’s post about hanging a badass gallery wall.
We always pride ourselves on affordability and quality and our canvas prints are no exception. Here’s a rundown of our sizes and prices.
Social Print Studio Canvas Prints:
Our competitors’ canvas ranges from 8x10’s starting at $49 going all the way up to $119. We can promise you you’re getting high quality canvas prints and only paying a fraction of the cost, even when you’re getting a USA made product.
4. Come in a variety of sizes
We make our Canvas Prints in the 4 best sizes of all. :) If you’re including your print on a gallery wall, we recommend the 8x8. If you’d like the Canvas Print to be the center of attention on your gallery wall, we recommend the 11x14 or 16x20. They’re showstoppers. If you’re considering canvas prints for office decor or a bulk business order, we recommend groupings of 4 8x8’s or evenly spaced 8x10’s in groups of 3.
Tip: Our customer service team has great style and knows the ins and out of our canvas prints. If you have questions about a corporate order, how canvas prints are made, or anything really, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and they’re happy to help.
5. Perfect for extra special photos
We’ve found that most people love printing their most special photos on canvas. We see a lot of wedding photos, engagement pictures, family pictures, and trip-of-a-lifetime landscape photos. It’s a lot of fun to be a part of printing our customers’ best memories and the happiest parts of their lives.
6. Makes a great gift
We know that one of the biggest pains is getting those hundreds (or thousands!) of pictures off your phone and printed for once and for all. One of the most thoughtful things you can do for someone is take that pesky to-do off their list. For Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or their birthday, pick a high res image you know will mean a lot to them, and have it printed as an 8x8 or 8x10 Canvas Print. They’ll love it!
Tip: See our gift guides for thoughtful gifts under $25, Valentine’s Day, and ideas for him, her, kids, and teens.
