Canvas, Metal, or Acrylic?

Canvas, Metal, or Acrylic? What is the best way to have your fine art photography printed?

Photography has come a long way from traditional printing on paper. Nowadays, you can print your photographs on a variety of materials, each with its own unique properties that can enhance the overall look and feel of an image. Three popular materials that we offer through Photo Art Pavilion for printing photographs are canvas, metal, and acrylic. In this blog, we will explore the differences between these three options.

Canvas Art Prints:

Canvas prints have been popular for centuries and have been used by artists to showcase their artwork. Canvas is a woven fabric that is stretched over a wooden frame, and the photograph is printed directly onto the canvas. Canvas prints have a classic and timeless look that gives photographs a beautifully textured effect.

One of the main advantages of canvas prints is that they are versatile and can be used in a variety of settings, from traditional to modern. They are also durable and long lasting, making them ideal for high-traffic areas such as offices and public spaces.

Metal Art Prints:

Metal prints are a relatively new printing option that has gained popularity in recent years. The photograph is printed directly onto a sheet of metal, usually aluminum, using a special printing process that infuses the ink into the metal surface. Metal prints are known for their vibrant colors, sharp details, and sleek, modern look.

One of the key benefits of metal prints is their durability. They are scratch-resistant, waterproof, and UV-resistant, making them ideal for outdoor use. They are also lightweight, making them easy to hang and transport.

Acrylic Art Prints:

Acrylic prints are a stunning option for those who want to give their photographs a high-end, luxurious look. The photograph is printed onto a sheet of high-quality acrylic, which is then mounted onto a wooden frame. Acrylic prints are known for their vibrant colors, high contrast, and brilliant clarity.

Acrylic art prints make a powerful statement and enrich and decor.

One of the key advantages of acrylic prints is their depth and dimensionality. The acrylic material adds a layer of depth to the image, making it appear almost three-dimensional. Acrylic prints are also durable and long lasting, making them ideal for high-traffic areas.

Ultimately, the choice of material for printing your photographs depends on your personal preference and the intended use of the image. Canvas prints are timeless and versatile, metal prints are durable and modern, and acrylic prints offer a high-end, luxurious look. Whichever material you choose, printing your photographs on a non-traditional surface can add an extra layer of interest and dimensionality to your decor.
