What goes into our canvases?Canvas & Frames
All our canvases are printed on 280gsm poly canvas to give the best canvas finish possible. The canvas we use is high quality and durable. Our canvases are professionally stretched before being mounted on their frames and are supplied with a set of wooden keys to ensure they stay taught over throughout their life time. By keeping an eye on the canvas industry we have observed that many companies do not use lipped or even mortised frame stock for their canvas prints. They often ignore the all important wedges, so beware.
We only ever use the highest quality wooden box frames on all our canvases. Sourced from our FSC certified partners, the timber we use comes from sustainable forests in Estonia. Not all canvas frames are equal. With the largest source of frames coming from China, Canvases Direct is proud to that we have elected to steer clear of this far less ecological source and choose a higher quality frame that does not warp over time.Ink:
Our 12 ink printing process ensures superior depth and richness of colour for every canvas we print. We only ever use inks manufactured by the same company that make our printer. This ensures quality. The inks offer 75 year UV protection, this means they will remain as bright as the day they are delivered.Packaging;
Canvases Direct is fortunate to be able to source our protective, bubble wrap locally. Our unique and minimal method of protecting our canvases mean that the packages are as light as possible but still robust enough to allow our packages to be delivered all over the world. All our artwork arrives in perfect condition wherever they’re sent.
