What options of canvas are there?
The short answer: simple, desk, collage, and framed.
Holiday snaps, wedding content, new arrivals (plants, puppies, or babies) – whatever the photo, there's a canvas that's perfect for it. There's one decision that needs to come first, which size (and thickness) should you go for? Well, we offer Simple Canvas Prints, Collage Canvas Prints, Desk Canvas Prints, and even Framed Canvas Prints (yes, they're a thing). Not sure which one to go for? We'll help you make that call.
- Simple Canvas
Our simple canvas prints are perfect for giving all the attention to just one photo. From family reunions, to loved-one's weddings, and all the uni memories in between – put your canvas pictures pride of place in your home and remember the good times. One photo, many (many) smiles incoming.
- Collage Canvas
Can't settle on just one shot? We get it. Our College Canvas Prints are the ideal choice for when one photo just won't cut it. With 16 canvas sizes to choose from, and space for up to 30 photos (yep, 30), it really was made for the indecisive types.
Our collage photo canvases make the perfect gift for anyone with a big family. Siblings, cousins, long-lost aunties – bring everyone into the picture with a printed canvas and gift it to the head of the family. The grandma, obviously.
- Desk Canvas
A lesson in hot-desking: pop a photo canvas on your favourite desk and claim it as your own for good. Cheeky? Us? Yeah, a bit.
At 20x20cm, our desk photo canvas is the perfect (little) addition to brighten up your work space. And, with the collage option available too, a small canvas doesn't have to mean fewer photos. Why not create a team canvas, with photos of everyone looking their best, and pop it on full display in the office? We know which team we'd want to be on.
- Framed Canvas
One of the biggest perks of printing photos on canvas is not needing to worry about buying a photo frame (ideal for home's with a busy colour scheme). But, when you want to give your printed canvas (even more) attention, framing it is the easiest option.
With a sustainably-sourced wooden frame, in the colour options black, brown, and white, we've somehow found a way to make canvas pictures look more premium. The best bit? Unlike framed photos, our framed canvases don't need the glass protective layer that can often reflect the light and make the image difficult to see. Wherever the sun hits, your printed canvas will only ever reflect one thing... the good times.
Which canvas size is best for my photo?
Our canvas prints come in a range of sizes to suit your space. As for thickness, there are two choices: Lite and Classic. The classic thickness is what you'd expect from an everyday canvas (3.9cm in depth), and the Lite is – surprise, surprise – a thinner version (at just 1.8cm depth). We'd recommend the thinner depth for smaller spaces, so that your canvas print doesn't stick out from the wall too much. For a more premium-looking option, go classic. (It's a classic for a reason).
As for the canvas shape – if it's a Simple Print you're creating, you can choose from square, rectangle, or panoramic. Panoramic is perfect for wide city shots or sunset snaps, FYI.
Extra bonus – go for the Classic depth option and we'll throw in a free hanging kit to get it up on the wall. "
Can canvas prints be framed?
If you can never find a frame that's just right, then you're in luck. Canvas prints are ideal because, typically, they don't need a frame (the photo does all the talking, wrapped right around the canvas mount). But, if you would prefer a framed option, we sell those too. With three classic colours to choose from – brown, black, and white – get the best of both worlds, with a textured photo canvas and a frame. Win-win.
What are canvas prints made from?
Our canvas pictures are printed on sturdy polyester canvas and mounted on stretcher bars as a solid wood frame. We'll include a free hanging kit with our Classic depth Simple Canvas Print, or if it's the desk canvas you're creating, it stands up by itself. Sort of magic, sort of physics.
Where should I display my canvas?
Canvas Prints can look good anywhere in your home. There’s a size, shape and style of canvas photo print for every nook and cranny, the trick is finding the one that’s right for you. For smaller spots around the home, like a cosy snug, or study space, we’d recommend choosing one of our Lite Canvas Prints. They hang beautifully and you can pick the right size and shape canvas photo prints to match the spot.
What about really tiny spots?
Try one of our Desk Canvas Prints — perfect for propping up in a corner or hanging in those hard to reach areas. For those bigger, wide open spaces, you really need Canvas Prints that will attract the attention and fill the wall. Our Simple Canvas Prints and Collage Canvas Prints come in a range of large sizes that will definitely fill out boring blank patches.
How do I create a canvas print?
Glad you asked. We've made it easier than ever to create a canvas print with us. Even choosing a photo is easy when there's an option to include 30. We'd suggest uploading your chosen photos to an album on your photobox account first (to make for an easier creation). Then, on your laptop, tablet, or on the Photobox app, drag and drop to your photos on canvas and you're good to go. You can crop and reposition the photos to get them just right (and we'll let you know if the quality isn't high enough for a printed canvas). Why not order duplicates of your epic printed canvas and gift them to your nearest and dearest? Just increase the number of items in your basket and deliver the joy to lots of people.
It's now easier than ever to create Canvas Prints with our app for Android and iOS.
