What is the difference in 7 oz. and 10 oz. canvas?
The 7oz. canvas has a more uniform pattern, comparable to linen. The 10oz. canvas is heavier with a deeper weave, suitable for larger prints.
How is this process different from the Fine Art Canvas or Gallery Wraps?
For canvas bonded prints, we take a photographic print and bond, or press, it into the canvas material using pressure and heat. For Fine Art Canvas and Gallery Wraps, the image is printed directly on the canvas using an inkjet printer.
Why is the Finelinen texture more affordable than the Linen texture? What is the difference between them?
Finelinen texture has a more uniform appearance than the Linen texture. When applying the Finelinen texture, we run the prints through a roller process. Our Linen texture is applied by pressing a premade plate into the print, making it a more labor intensive process.
Do I have a choice on how the Brush Texture is applied?
Yes, you can make requests from the following:
Random - An allover swirl stroke that covers the whole print. No contouring or following of the actual image.
Normal - Random strokes in background. The subject (or main focus) of the image will be followeded using contoured strokes. This is what will be applied if no preference is made known to us.
Artistic - No random strokes. The entire print is followed. Background is followed, as well as the subject.
Do you have tips for framing a Print on Metallic paper?
