Giclée printers are capable of printing in a diverse range of media (substrates) including thick media such as canvas. Canvas can be used for virtually printing any project, ranging from personal, weddings and related imagery to fine art reproductions for either photographic and painted art.
The use of Giclée printers to make reproductions of original artwork, photographs or computer generated art is an economical alternative compared to Offset prints as giclee prints are done by demand. Inkjet printing has the added advantage of allowing the artist to control every aspect of the image, manage color, choose a particular media plus the incredible archival capabilities of the pigment ink and media.

Canvas Stretching Options:
If you wish to print on canvas, there are a number of options for displaying it properly, They all contribute to the final presentation, look and feel of your artwork or memorabilia:
Dry Mounting: The canvas will be mounted onto a hard surface to add rigidity such as Foam Core, Masonite , particularly useful when the image has been printed borderless or there isn’t sufficient canvas bleed for stretch.
Regular Stretch: The canvas is printed with a white border that allows for stretching on a 3/4″ deep wooden strainer, is the conventional way of stretching a canvas and needs posterior framing in order to hide the unfinished canvas bleed and the staples on the side.
Gallery Stretch: A fashionable way of displaying your canvas prints, it can be done in 2 presentations small 3/4″ and full 1 3/4″. It offers a bold look while being minimalistic and clean; in order to stretch your canvas in a gallery style, enough image bleed must be allowed so the image can be wrapped to the back.
