PRINTS

Texture, Durability & Quality

When we were looking for our primary print medium, we wanted a durable, high quality material that gives an authentic look and feel to our prints, that is also cost effective. We found all these qualities with the canvases that we use.

Epson Premium Canvas Satin

Poly/Cotton blend with a unique texture that gives the appearance that this is the work of a true artist, on a glossy surface. Suitable and stretchable for framing, this is water-resistant, allowing extreme durability, which makes it the highest resolution canvas. (you also say that Epson water-resistance canvas is the highest resolution?)

  • Acid-free
  • lignin-free
  • heavyweight
  • cotton/poly blend with a high D-max
  • wide color gamut
  • elegant, semi-gloss surface)

Contact African Canvas Prints for any technical questions about our Canvas.

OTHER PRINT OPTIONS

There are a huge variety of print options available out there. We have decided to only focus on premium quality canvas prints. However we are able to do custom prints, on a variety of different print mediums. It would be easier for us to discuss these with you individually, please contact us with your specific request so that we can help you get the exact print that you are looking for.

Print sizes

We have standardized five print options, for website purchases.

  • A4 (300mm x 200mm)
  • A3 (400mm x 300mm)
  • A2 (600mm x 400mm)
  • A1 (900mm x 600mm)
  • A0 (1200mm x 900mm)

Custom Sizes

The above sizes are our standard prints, however if you require anything to be print bigger or smaller please contact us as custom sizes are not available through the website directly.

Yes, and we offer a free service to edit the photograph as well.

The first thing that many photographers are yet to do is actually print their photographs nice and big. Although your own photographs may look amazing your own computer screen. Due to the size, resolution, and high quality of our printers, little editing flaws show up quite easily on a large print. Our Lightroom and Photoshop specialists are available to edit your photographs if you require them.

  • This service is designed for us to help you edit the photograph.
  • Send us the Hi-resolution file, ideally the Raw file
  • We kick up a conversation about how you would like the photograph edited? Monochrome, style of edit and we assist with helping you understand what will work and what won’t work with each image.
  • This whole process is done individually and we provide a number of mock-up and tweaks until you are satisfied with the final edit.
  • We print and ship your personal canvas print.

Yes we can, but only for South African orders.

There is to much additional risk of damage, by sending a stretched and mounted canvas internationally. So the only option for international buyers is our standard loose canvas that is shipped in a protected tube. Then a local framer or gallery could easily mount and stretch the print once it arrives.

For orders that have a South African mailing address please contact us directly.

So we are able to quote you privately about having your prints mounted and stretched. Please note that the additional cost will be for both the addition of the stretching/mounting and the extra cost of having a larger package.

*Additional costs of having a print Stretch mounted and shipped, over and above the cost of the print and standard shipping.
