How is the CanvasHQ printing process different than others?

Free touch ups included, image touch ups by our Photoshop experts are always free.

Our inks won’t smudge, we use state-of-the-art printers to reproduce your photos on canvas.

Quality control, we do multiple quality control checks for proper colors, we check the print quality, and we make sure that there aren’t any imperfections (small bumps) in the canvas material.

Every frame is hand-crafted, we start out by using super premium pine that is kiln-dried to help prevent against warping in the future. Each stretcher bar is hand-selected and checked for imperfections including bows, cracks, bad joints, and knots. We cut the stretcher bars using precision saws and then assemble it using jigs to make sure every frame is straight and true. The frame is constructed with brads and staples, not glue, to ensure the lasting strength of the frame. We use wooden corner bracing and cross-braces to add structural rigidity to the frame and help prevent the frame from ever coming out-of-square.

We ensure that we get a nice firm and even stretch resulting in the ‘drum’ sound when you tap on the face of your canvas print. We expertly fold the corners so that the edges are nice and square. As always, we’re sticklers about giving you a high quality photo canvas product. If at any point in the process we see something that will result in a defect in your canvas print, we don’t hesitate to start your canvas all over again.

We add the hanging hardware to the back of your canvas; smaller canvases receive a sawtooth hanger and larger canvases receive a hanging wire across the back. We even include a handy hanging hook with your canvas so that you can mount it to your wall without needing any tools.

Once we make a high quality canvas print, of course, that’s not where the process ends. We protect your canvas in a plastic sleeve to prevent scratching during shipping. We use a packaging technique and boxes that were specifically approved by FedEx – that means that 99.5% of our canvas prints make it to you without shipping damage. In those rare cases where your photo canvas is damaged during shipment – no worries – we’ll replace it quickly and without additional charge.

After the package is sealed up and the shipping labels are affixed, we send you a shipping confirmation so that you can track your canvas throughout the shipping process.

The last and most fun step in the process is for you to choose the final home on your wall for your canvas print. Once the perfect spot is chosen, you can simply push our included hanging hook into your wall, no tools needed. Your canvas print is ready to hang, level, and enjoy.
