Photo on Canvas Vs Matted Framed Prints

Aug 16, 2008
No doubt your home is filled with scrapbooks and photo albums overflowing with pictures of the past. You may even have a box of photos yet to be entombed in any form of structured memory storage. The various frames that pack your shelves and tabletops are beginning to pervade your living space. You're in need of a new way to display your images. You want the look of fine art and elegance. And there are two ways to achieve this. Traditionally, people have chosen to transfer their photos onto ordinary matting and arrange them in framing for final presentation. But now, a new and innovative form of imagery is catching the eye of amateurs and artists alike- canvas photos.

Unlike customary matted portraits, your pictures will come alive when seamlessly transmitted onto soft and sturdy canvas and wrapped on a solid wood frame. And your images will look as animated and vibrant as the day you took them! The quality of craftsmanship that comes with a canvas photo is guaranteed to last as long as you own the picture- and well after. These portraits make the perfect heirlooms to pass on to your family. Your pictures will be more beautiful than any embellished scrapbook page, and can be easily viewed, unlike flipping through the pages of a photo album. And canvas photos are an extremely affordable work of art. Take a look at our comparison of matted versus canvas photos, and you'll see just how the competition stacks up.

Cost: The cost of any photo is dependant upon its size. You can purchase both matted and canvas photos in dimensions big and small. But compare the price. A matted frame of 8 x 10 proportion can cost as much as $50. In contrast, the charge for an 8 x 10 photo printed on canvas can be as few as $25- that's half the price! The difference in dollars for a larger size portrait is even more dramatic. If you're looking to hang your picture above the mantelpiece, a 20 x 30 matted frame will cost you upwards of $250, but a canvas photo of the same size can be purchased for less than $100. That's a savings of $150 or more!

Quality: Matted photos, though displayed beautifully, can tend to take on a one-dimensional existence. They appear flat and lifeless. But a canvas photo can awaken a memory trapped in time! Perhaps you've snapped a special photo of your natural surroundings. The desolate backdrop of a desert, the cool serenity of a lake shore, the chaos and confusion of the big city. A canvas photo will breathe new life into any image- feel the sun on your face once more, sooth yourself with the lapping lake waves, and listen to the buzz of the city streets.

Durability: Why worry with broken glass and chipped frames? Matted photos can be damaged so easily that the average picture needs to be replaced after just a few years. Canvas photos are resistant to normal wear and tear, making them the most resilient form of photo imagery. The life expectancy of a canvas photo can be as much as 100 years if maintained properly, making it the perfect family heirloom.

Whether it's affordability durability, or artistic quality you're looking for, you'll find it all with canvas photos!
