Photos on Canvas: Distinguish Your Business

Aug 8, 2008
If you're an artist, I'm sure you're constantly looking for a new, innovative idea which will help your work stand out from the competition. Whether you're a painter or photographer, one easy way to get a leg-up on the competition is by utilizing canvas prints.

For photographers, the benefits of printing photos on canvas are numerous. Canvas prints last longer than normal photo prints, are more durable, and are priced similar to the higher-quality photo printing and framing services you likely utilize to display your works. But most importantly, canvas prints are unique and eye-catching.

Every photographer displays their work on normal printing surfaces in a frame. It's the common way to display works, and for most of the 20th century it worked just fine. Now, however, with digital cameras making everyone a self-proclaimed professional photographer it's important your work stands out from the pack, and you can do that by printing it on canvas prints.

Imagine, if you will, your gallery or the local store/café you sell your photos at. People see the photo in a frame, look at it, nod, and move on. With a canvas print, however, people will instantly be drawn to your work more than any other piece on the wall, because it's unique. Not only is it unique, it looks classier. Even if you only sell photos printed on photo paper and framed, canvas prints will draw people to your example and sample pieces much more readily than they would be drawn to any standard photography displays. Canvas prints draw the eye, and anyone who has ever seen one on the wall can attest to taking a closer look.

If you do decide to sell your art on canvas prints, doing so will likely be cheaper than the cost of printing and framing a work. Because canvas prints are more durable than standard photos, and because they can be covered in lacquer to protect them, canvas prints are fine as-is, even outdoors, and require no extra money spent on custom framing. Not only will it be cheaper for you to produce your works on canvas than on paper, but you can pass the savings on to your buyers. Your work will stand out from the competition and look more artistic and professional, and it will also be available at a lower price. Sounds like a win-win situation, doesn't it?

Photographers aren't the only artists who can benefit from using canvas prints. If you're a painter (or inker), canvas prints make a fantastic starting ground for any works. By printing a background image (yours or public domain) and painting over it, you'll be able to mix the effects of printed (and real life) images and your own work. The result is an entirely unique display that most people have never seen, and it will be guaranteed to bring people to view your works. For those of you who have trouble coming up with backgrounds for more abstract pieces, printing pictures on canvas prints and painting over them also eliminates that little problem. The best part? People will always believe that you used the canvas print background as part of your artistic vision, and not because you didn't want to (or couldn't) take the time and effort to come up with a better background on your own. You can also create canvas prints of people you want to paint or sketch portraits of, and have a great starting base to work over for that lifelike look.

As you can see, canvas prints not only benefit the consumer, but even the producers of art can utilize canvas prints in ways which will help them succeed. The key is to start now before everyone finds out about it.
