Prints On Canvas
How Is My Canvas Shipped?
We use a local courier within Australia and TNT for International deliveries. Both companies are fast and efficient and deliver both stretched and unstretched (rolled) art to your home.
We will ship all over the world. Once you place and order and select the overseas destination AKA will automatically calculate the delivery cost before you are charged.
Can I Track My Order?
Yes you can do that here
What Is Your Delivery Time?
Our delivery is one of the fastest in Australia, dispatching within 2 to 3 working days after your order is placed. The exact delivery time depends on your location.
What printer and inks do you use?
We use the best quality Epson printers. We always use genuine Epson Ultrachrome pigment inks. These are considered by many to be the best in the marketplace and when you see the strong, vibrant colours that leap off of the canvas, you will agree.
What canvas do you use?
We print on 100% cotton 390gsm canvas. We only use the best quality canvas with our canvases being carefully selected and imported to provide the best surface for our prints. The 100% cotton canvas is of the very highest quality and made to last.
How long do they last?
The canvas prints have been independently lab tested by companies such as Kodak and Epson to last up to 75 years as long as they are out of direct ultra violet light.
Do I Choose Stretched or Rolled (unstretched)?
One of the biggest questions we get asked is what is the difference between a stretched and rolled canvas (unstretched). A stretched canvas print is a canvas print that has been stretched over a kiln dried timber frame and is delivered ready to hang straight on the wall. A rolled canvas is just the printed canvas without the stretcher bars, customers that buy the rolled canvas normally either want to make their own frame or ship their art overseas.
How do I care for my canvas print?
Most marks can be easily removed by running a duster over the canvas or giving it a light clean with the vacuum cleaner using the brush to get rid of any dust on the surface. If the mark is still there then you can wipe the canvas gently using a plain white wet cloth.
How are the canvas prints stretched onto a frame?
Your canvas is carefully hand stretched over a profiled quality pine frame and securely stapled so that the canvas is taught over the bars. We then tape the edge of the canvas to the frame at the back to protect against dust, and insert stainless steel hanging wire and eyelets making your stretched canvas print ready to hang as soon as its delivered to your door.
Are there any copyright issues?
We are licenced to print and sell the images.
Do you laminate your canvas to protect it against weathering?
Our laminates are carefully selected to maximise protection and keep colours rich while minimising any unwanted glossy sheen that are the results of cheaper laminate. Many canvas printers will skip this step to avoid paying for quality laminates and cut drying time. We have so much faith in the necessity to have good laminate that we include it free within the price.
Do you mount on stretcher bars or MDF blocks?
Our stretcher bars are:
- 32mm in profile
- Kiln-dried making our stretched canvas prints more sturdy and even less likely to warp over time
- Bevelled edges to prevent cracking
- Bevelled contour to prevent 'ghosting' - an impression of the canvas touching the stretcher bar
- We use Sustainable Plantation New Zealand Pine Kiln Dried with a routed lip, bought from a major Australian picture framing supplier, this is then glued and underpinned in house.
