What is a canvas art print?

Artsy Canada's canvas art prints (also know as "giclees" are created by using digital art images and printed using professional printers and archival inks directly onto premium canvas.  Each finished print is hand-stretched over wooden gallery frame bars and secured with galvanized staples. All our canvas art prints don't require any framing and come finished with a sharp black edge offering a clean look when hung against any wall paint colour.

Product details for our canvas art prints include:

  • Made-to-order canvas art prints are hand-stretched over 1.5" gallery thick wooden frames 
  • Secured with galvanized staples
  • Ready-to-hang out of the box with hanging hardware on the back (wire)
  • No framing required. All canvas art prints are finished with a black edging

All canvas prints use:

  • Premium poly/cotton blend canvas (made in Canada)
  • Finishing laminate to protect your canvas art print from fading or cracking for hundreds of years
  • Custom wooden frames from Canadian renewable resources
  • Archival printing inks

Do I need to frame my canvas art print?

No! The beauty of our canvas art prints is that they come ready-to-hang out of the box and require no framing. Each piece is stretched over a 1.5" thick wooden frame and is finished with a black edging.

If you like the look of a canvas art print with a frame our canvas prints canvas be framed/finished the same as any original painting would be.

Any tips for selecting the right canvas size?

If you have decided on a space and an image that you're interested in, we recommend using painters tape (that can be purchased at any hardware store) to tape off one or two size options directly onto your wall. This will give you a better visual to see what size could work best without damaging the paint on your walls.

Are your canvas art prints limited editions?

No. We believe that art should be accessible to everyone.  Our open-edition prints are a terrific way for art lovers of all budgets to add original art to their walls and lives. 

By offering our customers open-edition prints we also don't restrict Artsy Canada's featured artists from gaining more exposure and sales for their artwork. 

How heavy are your canvases? Do I need anything special to hang them?

Our canvas art prints are surprisingly light weight due to their wooden frame. (Ranging from 2-6 pounds).

We recommend using a picture hanging hook with a nail that will support items up to 30 pounds.  

Will sunlight or weather (temperatures) damage my canvas art print?

No. Each canvas art print is coated with environmentally friendly UV protection that provides optimal protection from scratches, fading and impacts from temperatures. This coating helps preserve your canvas art print making them a durable decor choice for homes, offices and cottages.

Can I clean my canvas print?

A general dusting using a soft micro-fiber cloth or generic household dusting wand will help keep your artwork in its best shape. If you ever spill something on your canvas art print, stick to cleaning using a damp cloth and plain water.
