Customer reviews Always read customer reviews to try and calculate the amount of customer satisfaction that the specialist has received. Avoid suppliers without a testimonials page.If they have gained a rich reputation by providing high quality items, they will be pleased to show customer comments on their website. This is also a key sign of quality as companies which have worked hard to earn a positive reputation are much less likely to risk losing it by using cheaper, sub-standard. materials. Outsourcing Be sure that the company is professional and that they truly know about the entire photo to canvas transfer process. A small number of canvas retailers outsource their work to other sellers, depending on a third party to provide you with a quality product. However in these cases, the prints are normally outsourced at a very low cost and the quality suffers greatly. Look to see if the business provides information on the canvas printing equipment used and the canvas photo to canvas transfer process. This is a good sign that the company are professionals who comprehend all aspects of photo to canvas transfer and is likely to provide you with a quality product. Canvas quality When creating your photo on canvas prints, the specialist you select ought to use the best quality, dense, heavy 100% cotton canvas. This artist grade canvas assures that the colours will remain bright, prevents splitting and cracking and is actually designed to lock the ink in. Sadly, a large number of canvas firms on the Internet use low grade 200gsm polyester or poly-cotton canvas (nearly always imported from China). This kind of canvas is in fact yellow but is subsequently bleached white. This bleach breaks down the inks and will lead to discolouration of your artwork in as few as eight weeks. The quality of the canvas that is used has a great deal to do with the all round quality of your finished print. Substandard quality canvas will split on the surface while mounting, spoiling your artwork. Frame type The kind of timber used to build your canvas is very important because it directly affects the lifespan of your print. Ensure the manufacturer in question only uses the highest quality, European, shaped pine stretcher bars to make their frames. These frames are made to a high standard and contain no knots or splits. These stretcher bars have a nice smooth lip which elevates the canvas a little to prevent causing indented marks along the front of your canvas. These marks on the canvas can be brought about by by the force of the frame behind it. Be sure that solid, fixed together wood or low cost fir stretcher bars (often made in China, known in the trade as 'Art98' bars) will not be used. These frames are poorly made and will not last. The stretcher bars should also have machined slots on the inside of the frame that enable you to insert 4 wooden tension wedges into the inside corners of the frame. These pegs are used to tighten your print further and enable it to be re-tightened over time. Be wary of suppliers that use plastic tension wedges that do not have raised dots at the end as they do not stay in place, requiring many suppliers to glue them in. This simply means that your canvas can never be re-tightened! Unfortunately many canvas firms now rely on either the brace method or 'Art98' bars to cut costs. This gives their art a limited lifespan. Only high quality frames can guarantee that your canvas will have a very long life and will look wonderful. Technology A large number of canvas print retailers are printing onto canvas with the Epson 9880 range of large format printers. The 9880 is regarded as the most advanced large format colour and black & white printer in the market today. These printers set new standards for large format photographic and fine art printing. Printing in high definition they make a big impression with lasting results in both black and white and vibrant colour. The 8-colour ink set system (that also includes three black inks for increased definition on black and white prints) means that every tone is captured beautifully. Other printing equipment can also be used to produce canvas prints but this range of Epson printers is by far the best. Lacquer The canvas specialist you decide on should apply a minimum of 1 layer of protective coating (ideally 3 layers) to all of their photo on canvas prints at no additional charge. This coating is a water-based varnish designed specifically to protect, preserve and enhance fine canvas art. This lacquer improves the colour of pigmented inks on matte media and increases resistance to U.V light that causes image fading. It will also defend your print against moisture and abrasion. Many photo on canvas print sellers on the web now ship their prints without any such coatings applied. These untreated canvases will crack at the edges and will fade dramatically over time.
