Frequently Asked Questions
What is the most optimal resolution to print a photo to canvas?
It really depends on how large you want your canvas printed, but the most optimal resolution is 300 dpi. We can work with 100dpi as well for smaller prints. Most pictures from your digital camera should work as long as it is at least 3 megapixels. If there's anything wrong with the resolution, we'll contact you via email.
What types of file formats do you accept?
Usually, the most common files are in jpeg or tiff. But if it's not in that file format, just contact us at
Can I scan my photo and upload it?
Yes! Just make sure that you set the dpi to the maximum (at least 300dpi).
Can I mail the photo to you?
Yes! When you order your canvas, choose the option to send the canvas to us. It can be the actual photo or on a CD or DVD. We'll send you your photo back to you with the canvas. The address is the following:

A "Canvas Only" order is the image printed on the canvas with about 2" of canvas on each side of the image. It is glossed and has a waterproof layer on the canvas, however it does not come framed.

We use high quality Chromata White Inkjet Canvas that is optimal for printing photographs and fine arts works. The canvas itself is a matte canvas, however, we add a gloss once the canvas is printed.
