The difference between canvas and prints
Canvas VS framed print
In the world of home decor, it’s uncommon to mix a canvas picture with a framed photo print on the same wall. People normally have one or the other so the wall art matches. The difference between a canvas picture and photo print is that photo prints have to be framed, they can be put into any photo frame which matches the color scheme of your room depending on what type of frame you choose, frames can change the way the picture looks such as a mirrored frame or rustic photo frame for example would suit different wall art prints and match different types of home decor.
In comparison, canvas prints provide a more flexible approach when decorating a wall. You can add them with much less thought since they do not need to be placed into a photo frame, canvas pictures are already built with wooden frames that only show on the back of the canvas, a picture is printed onto the canvas and stretched into place to create the 3D effect canvas picture. Our canvas pictures can easily match to any style of a room.
When comparing our canvas pictures to our photo prints you won't find one is better than the other, it's simply down to your own taste and what you like on your wall!
You will find our canvas pictures provide a different texture to our photo paper, it adds depth to the picture. Canvases do not catch the reflection photo prints will as prints are put inside photo frames, behind glass. Our canvas pictures hardly have any weight to them, making them safe if they ever did fall or get moved. Our photo prints come in a semi-gloss finish which adds extream detail, compared to our canvas pictures that have slightly less detail as canvases are made from cotton.
If it's a certain style you're looking for, maybe a photo print would be a good choice as you can choose your own frame that matches your room decor if it's the arty, and easier to hang on the wall option then maybe a canvas picture will suit you best.
