Canvas Printing from ESJ Designs
About the Canvas Printing service
ESJ Designs provides a high quality, low cost canvas printing service. Your photographs or pieces of art are transformed into beautiful canvas prints that will instantly brighten a room up. Printing a photo on canvas makes a perfect gift and although the costs from ESJ Designs are low, the finished canvas prints look like they should have cost a lot more. Cheap canvas prints make what appear to be very expensive gifts.
You can either buy canvas prints as mounted canvases (stretched over a wooded frame) or as rolled canvas prints. There are two sizes of rolled canvas print available, either printed and cut to the exact size or printed and cut oversized for home framing. The size for oversized canvas printing is outlined in the image size diagrams.
Canvas printing equipment
The equipment and techniques used by ESJ Designs for canvas printing ensures that your images are perfectly reproduced as photos on canvas. 340gsm 100% cotton canvas is used and every print is given three coats of a matte protective varnish. This gives the canvas print extra protection and leaves an attractive satin finish.
HP Z2100 large format printers combined with 8 colour thermal inkjet technolgy and Vivera pigment UV fade resistant inks are used and produce stunning photo canvas reproductions that will resist fading for 200 years.
Canvas printing is done at 2400dpi. This is a lot higher than the standard 1440dpi that most companies print at.
Each canvas print is stretched over 18mm deep frames with the corners trimmed and folded neatly. Canvas prints are all supplied with wire attached, ready to hang.
Image guidelines for canvas printing
Both digital images and hard copy photographs are suitable for canvas printing. Hard copy photographs can be posted and ESJ Designs offer a free scanning service. Photographs will be returned. Digital photographs can be emailed. The simplest method is to email a full size JPEG, straight from the camera and ESJ Designs will size it correctly and email a proof back before proceeding with the canvas print. Other file formats that are acceptable include tiff, .pdf, .psd, .ai, .eps. If images are set to actual size, the resolution needs to be a minimum of 200dpi.
Please see the image size diagrams for details on canvas sheet sizes and the amount of bleed needed for mounted canvas prints.
