DIY Canvas Printing

Want to print your own photos on canvas? Sure, you could go out and purchase all the supplies you need to attempt to DIY it from home, but, even if you don’t mind the inconvenience of doing it yourself, depending on the supplies and technique you follow, your DIY canvas print will crack and fade over time and the colours in the photo will be dull and lifeless. Some DIY tutorials even suggest you use Mod Podge and a towel to create an artificial textured look over the canvas. Yikes! Don’t go through the hassle of attempting to print on canvas yourself only to end up with disappointing results that aren’t going to look good years down the road. 

The Right Way to Print on Canvas From Home

We still think you should print your photos on canvas from home, but instead of wasting your money and making a big, sticky mess, simply upload your photo to our website, choose your preferred print size, and let us take it from there! Unlike a DIY canvas print, your Posterjack Canvas Print will have a beautiful and authentic texture thanks to the woven poly-cotton canvas we use; the colours in the photo will be crisp and vibrant and won’t fade for over 200 years because we use UV-stable, green certified HP inks; and, of course, choosing Posterjack to print your photos on canvas means you’re not limited to the size your home printer can produce.

This is a Posterjack Canvas Print. It’s a piece of custom artwork made just for you at our workshop. They’re classic, vibrant, and durable. And our Canvas Prints are at the top of the quality game, here’s why. 

First, we start with a nice, thick 100% cotton canvas. Then we apply Art Shield laminate, protecting your canvas from fading and scratching. We custom-make each frame in-house out of sturdy, grade-A basswood. Each canvas is handmade by experienced craftsmen and stretched to perfection. Posterjack canvases are known for vibrant, accurate colours and sharp detail. The corners are perfectly folded and tight. Every canvas comes with a robust picture wire attached and is ready to hang. Choose an optional Floater Frame to make a gorgeous print really stand out. We’d love to print your photo on canvas and show you just how good a canvas print can be.
