Traditional Canvas Prints

With traditional canvas prints, your choice of Lustre, Glossy, or Metallic Paper is made into a photographic print, after which the emulsion is peeled and bonded to a piece of canvas. Your choice of laminate is then applied to the image to help protect the canvas and to get your desired finish.

Please note that the heat and pressure of bonding the photo to the canvas fabric will create a glossy finish even when Lustre paper is ordered.
