Canvas company that ships to Germany?

1 year 7 months ago #590867 by Scott Klubeck
I have an old client who moved to Germany last year.  They want another print that we shot before they left, however the canvas company that did their last set of prints doesn't ship outside the of the mainland USA.  

Do you have a company that you can recommend that will ship to Germany?  Canvas print size will be 42x24" mat finish on 1.5" frame.  

Thanks PT!

LOL I was going to say the same thing.  It's a situation where you only trust that particular company.  Other wise as someone else pointed out, have it printed there and save the $$ on shipping.

I appreciate all the feedback.  Have any of you tried White Wall?

These days, I'm hooked on CanvasHQ, they are located in Arkansas and do excellent work.  Highly recommend them.   Now to be honest, I can't recall if they ship to Europe or not.  I would suggest if you haven't found a source yet, to call them up and check.  

If the don't ship to Europe, I have used WhiteWall as well, and they are as mentioned located in Germany.  They have a great product as well.  Actually I like their metal and acrylic prints, their canvas prints aren't as nice as CanvasHQ.  CanvasHQ specializes in canvas and nothing else, which is why they are regarded so well.   

Hope this helps!

If shipped from outside the EU to a private person the consignee will also be charged with 19% VAT.

For what it's worth. I suggest you have his regular printer do it, ship it to you unframed rolled in a cardboard tube, then
redirect it to Germany. Write on the customs declaration "Unsolicited
birthday gift" You may get lucky. As advised here by others, there's a lot
of merit to having it printed in Germany. 
I have mailed rolled prints in cardboard tubes, as I sell prints of my photography and fine art paintings printed on my Epson Stylus Pro 9900. Some mailed as far afield as the Philippines and South Africa. If you use a new
printing service, it's good form to send them a control print for colour
matching. It need only be a small portion of a print for reference. Having the work framed locally will save a ton of money on mailing.


Good luck :D
