What Are Canvas Pictures?
Canvas prints, or canvas pictures, are a beautiful combination of modern technology and traditional craftsmanship. A canvas print is an image printed onto canvas from an inkjet printer. Once the image is printed onto the canvas material (read below to check out what materials we use here at Canvas Vows!), the canvas material is then stretched over a wooden frame. Regarding the borders of your canvas pictures, you have two main options:
#1 Gallery-Wrapped Edges (Frameless Borders)
Gallery-wrapped edges, or frameless borders, are canvas pictures that have an image that extends beyond the edge of the typical canvas frame. “Gallery-wrapped” means that the image is wrapped around the sides of the stretcher frame. When the image is printed out on canvas, if there is at least 2.5 inches on each of the 4 sides, you can choose whether you want the image to go to the edge, or be gallery-wrapped and go past the edge.
#2 Image Aligned with Edge of Frame (Framed Borders)
If you want your canvas photo prints to appear to have a border, you can choose to have your image printed on the canvas so that there is an extra 2.5 inches on all 4 sides. This way, when your canvas is wrapped around the stretcher frame, just the image will appear on the front of the canvas print, while the edges will be white, like a framed border.

The Process: How To Transfer A Picture To Canvas
If you’re wondering how to transfer a picture to canvas or how to print photos on canvas, don’t worry — the process is pretty simple. Not sure how to put a picture on a canvas? Follow these simple steps:
#1 Find Your Image
For some, finding an image can be super simple. For others, it can be more difficult — you know the event you want to commemorate but not the exact image. Perhaps you want to commemorate a special event like your birthday, wedding or anniversary celebration. Perhaps you want to commemorate a special person in your life, like your wife or husband, mom or dad, grandparents, siblings or best friend. Or maybe, you want to commemorate a special place. Whatever it is that’s meaningful to you, find an image that you just love and we’ll help you create the best canvas prints to celebrate your memory.

The Materials Of Our Custom Canvas Prints
#1 The Fabric
Here at Canvas Vows, we use canvas material that has a satin finish, is bright white in appearance (before the application of inks), is water-resistant and is composed of a 35% cotton and 65% polyester blend. We’ve found that using a cotton-polyester blend creates the best canvas prints and canvas pictures. With a photo transfer to canvas, it is our priority to make sure the end result looks as good as it can.
That’s why we use the fabric blend that we do.
The cotton-polyester blend gives a uniform, low-glare finish to the canvas picture prints. This makes our canvas fabric ideal for both indoor and outdoor signage, backdrops and murals. Using this material means that we do not need any sort of lamination and the material can be stretched without cracking. Additionally, the cotton-polyester blend is compatible with EcoSol, high-grade solvent, UV, and latex inks.
#2 The Inks & Printer
When transforming pictures to canvas, it is of utmost importance that high quality inks and a high quality printer is used. Low quality or incorrect use of inks or printers can ultimately lead to a poor quality canvas print. Here at Canvas Vows, we use HP Latex Ink and HP Printers because they give us the best results and contribute to helping us give you the best canvas prints.
Why HP Latex Inks?
Water-based HP Latex Inks create high image quality and consistency on a substrate range. Here at Canvas Vows, we use HP certified latex inks because it is significantly higher quality and higher durability than varnish printing. Additionally, HP latex inks are compatible with HP printers — a combination that creates consistent results.
#3 The Frame
Here at Canvas Vows, we use high quality wood to create sturdy frames. There is just no other way to do it. Whether you want large canvas prints or small canvas pictures, the frame is what ensures you can display your gorgeous image on your walls.
