Canvas Transfer

"Thankyou very much for the fast shipment and the beautiful canvas I am so happy. Great price for a great item." - Ross, NSW

What is a canvas transfer?


Canvas transferring is an intensely detailed process which transfers the ink from the paper art print onto a high quality artist canvas. You can transfer most prints and posters on our web site onto canvas but only the image is transferred (no white boarder or text). Once transferred the canvas is stretched over a sturdy wooden stretcher bar ready for hanging.

What is the quality like?


Our canvas transfers are created using the highest quality canvas materials at very competitive prices. A canvas transfer print has a lifespan as long as any original painting or work of art. The stretched canvas can easily be dusted and cleaned with a damp cloth, giving years of use and enjoyment.

How are the edges finished?


There are 2 ways of wrapping the canvas over the stretcher bar:

  1. Museum Wrap - the image goes to the edge of the surface with plain white sides. The picture image ends at the front with white canvas showing on the sides.
  2. Gallery Wrap - the image wraps around the edge and continues back toward the wall. The picture image wraps around the sides of the canvas creating a quality seamless look.

When we stretch your canvas our experienced framers select the method of wrapping depending on the image and what will look best. If you have a preference please let us know when you place your order.

What is the benefit of the brushstroke finish?


The optional brushstroke finish is a clear lacquer that is painted on the surface of the canvas. Our skilled artisans hand paint brushstrokes to recreate the additional depth, texture and richness found on the original artwork. An artist's individual attention makes each canvas transfer a unique piece of art.
