If you need a unique gift to give your loved ones. I personally think there is no better option than canvas prints.
Canvas prints make wonderful photography gifts because they are so personal. Canvas prints are also pretty unique. It’s likely that your loved ones aren’t expecting anything like it.
I believe that canvas prints are one of the best photography gift ideas, too, because they are such a prominent piece in your home. I gave my father some canvas prints as a Christmas present a couple of years ago and everytime I’m over at his house, he loves to walk me past those canvas prints to thank me once again for being so thoughtful.
Here is a list of other reasons why canvas prints make great gifts.
Canvas Prints Look Great
Canvas prints are absolutely gorgeous, but they are also versatile. CanvasHQ, one of our favorite canvas print shops, has a variety of finishes for their canvases, ranging from matte to glossy to vintage.
In this way, you can easily create canvas prints that work with any type of home.
Matte prints work best in traditional environments, since they offer an ultra-low glare finish. Semi-gloss prints also work well in traditional homes because they simulate an oil painting.
Glossy prints and iridescent prints both look excellent in more modern environments, since they catch more light.
Finally, vintage prints work well in rural homes since the vintage finish is made of natural fibers.
Canvas Prints Last Long
CanvasHQ promises that each of their canvas prints will last a lifetime because they only use high quality ingredients.
From the ink to the canvas, and even the construction in between, CanvasHQ puts a lot of thought into their products. The end result is a canvas print that is of a museum grade quality. So long as you don’t hang your canvas print in direct sunlight, it should last decades.
They're Well Made
CanvasHQ uses commercial-grade ink that is made for use outdoors in order to prevent your canvases from fading over time.
If you do opt for another canvas company, you need to make sure that they aren’t using water-based inks as a cost-cutting measure because they will bleed if they get wet and fade so easily.
CanvasHQ also uses six different ink colors to make sure that your canvas prints are as vibrant as your photos.
Unlike other canvas companies, CanvasHQ also puts each one of their canvases together by hand. This prevents the canvas from warping over time.
Despite the fact that CanvasHQ creates all of their products with high quality ingredients, they are still really affordable.
Unlike other prints, like metal, that can be incredibly pricey, canvas prints cost just a little bit more than paper prints.
For example, you can purchase a canvas print off of CanvasHQ for as little as $20.
Even huge pieces you can buy for your friends and family to hang over their couches or master beds are only a few hundred dollars.
