Gallery Wrapped Photo On Canvas

May 1, 2008
When printing a picture to give as a gift or hang up in your house, most people are accustomed to getting their photos printed on standard photo paper and getting that picture framed. While this traditional method can have a very classic look and be very beautiful, sometimes using a more unique and unconventional method to print and display your photos can be much more interesting and often makes better gifts. One way to do this is to have a gallery wrapped photo on a canvas medium.

Having a gallery wrapped photo on canvas can be more or less expensive than traditional framing based on the type of frame you get, and although the picture is not protected behind glass, it will retain its color and magnificence just as long. Canvas pictures can often close to a century in pristine condition if kept in the right conditions. Photos on canvas can be reproductions of traditional color or black and white photos, reprints of paintings, or prints of digital photos. Canvas photos give a more artistic look than traditional photo paper having a unique texture and look.

The process of putting your images on a gallery wrapped photo on canvas is much different than the traditional method of printing photos. No developing is required; instead it simply uses canvas and a high quality printer. It is important to pick a producer that will use high quality products to ensure the durability and quality of your picture. The process of making your gallery wrapped photo on canvas begins with the printing of the desired image. This is often done using high quality oil based ink and special printers to create a high quality image that is identical to the original. The image is then treated with a water resistant sealer giving the canvas added protection from moisture and stains that may occur because the picture is not hidden behind a frame.

The last step in making a gallery wrapped photo on canvas is what makes gallery wrapping unique. In most canvas printing, when the image is stapled to the wooden frame behind it, the edges are usually left white. With gallery wrapping, the image is made large enough so that it can be wrapped around the frame completely, making parts of the image visible from every angle. The wooden frame is not a frame in the traditional sense, it is more to maintain tautness of the canvas and make the photo easy to hang and display. If there are two extra inches of wooden framing on each side, then the image appears to be almost 3D and can pop out to the viewer.

Having a gallery wrapped photo on canvas gives images a unique look. Canvas and oil based inks can make photographs can look like paintings, and makes reproductions of paintings look just like the originals. It allows art buffs to own their favorite works of art, and allows families to uniquely display their favorite memories and share them with relatives and friends. They make great gifts, and are sure to make a great addition to any house
