The cheapest way to get your prints on canvas is to use a mass-market printing service, either online or offline. These printing services produce prints on canvas that are inexpensive, yet of reasonable quality for personal photos that will be framed and displayed. While the quality of such prints may not be professional, having a discount service handle printing photos to canvas for you is an ideal way to save money on attractive, durable photo prints.
If you have all the photos you want printed to canvas stored on your computer or digital camera you will need to securely send large files to the canvas printing company instead of having to post the images to them or send lower quality images over email.
Inexpensive canvas printing services are meant for family and personal photos, where sharpness may not be as crucial as it is for artistic or technical prints. Still, use the sharpest possible digital image or scan, and use editing programs to improve the image as necessary. Inexpensive printing services automate the printing process so that they do not provide the services of technicians who will adjust the printing equipment to make up for lack of sharpness in your scan.
Finding a mass-market printing service that prints to canvas are a matter of searching online. Even local services, such as those offered by a drugstore, office supply and supermarket chains, usually advertise online and they often offer coupons and other discounts to new and returning customers alike.
Check customer reviews and other unbiased information when shopping for a service that prints on canvas. Most of the heavily advertised services, whether online or offline, do produce prints of reasonable quality at an affordable price. However, some firms offer a full guarantee, so that they will refund money or reprint in the event you are not satisfied with your print. Printing photos to canvas are becoming more and more popular, and firms now offer lower prices and faster service thanks to advances in technology as well as increased competition.
