Are you looking for a way to make your home more personal? Want to introduce some unique elements that only you have? If so, you may want to consider getting personalised canvas photo prints as wall art. Not only are they personable, but they are also an excellent choice if you are on a tight budget and need something inexpensive with a big impression.
Although there are many types of printed images available on the market, nothing quite compares to the visual impact of having your own photos displayed in your home. This sort of wall art is simple to set up and can also be used in practically every room of the house. Depending on your personal style and the atmosphere of your space, there are several factors to consider when choosing which photos you want to showcase on the canvas.
1. Decide on a theme or purpose
Before deciding which photos to print, you must first decide what type of print you want and why. This will help you narrow down your choices and make finding suitable photos to print easier. For example, if you want to create a photo wall in your living room, you may consider choosing nature-related images for some that are neutral.
Alternatively, if you have a specific wall in mind for your prints, you may wish to select photographs that complement the colour of the wall. This will result in a well-designed and coherent space. You can choose to create a theme based on a special occasion or memory if you are unsure of where to begin. For example, if you have images from a family trip that you enjoyed, consider printing them on canvas to commemorate the occasion.
2. Finding photos to print
After deciding on a purpose for your prints, you can begin the process of finding photos to print. This can be broken down into two parts: choosing photos to print and finding the appropriate size canvas print to order.
If you already have images chosen and ready to go, skip to the next step. However, if you have yet to choose the photos, you may want to start by looking for relevant images. You can do this in several ways, such as scanning your photo library or having new photographs taken via professional photo studios in Singapore. Whichever way you do this, ensure the selected photos are high-quality and will look good printed on canvas.
If you want to make sure your photos will print well, ensure to use images that have a high resolution. The resolution of a photo is measured in pixels per inch (PPI). The more pixels there are, the better the photo’s quality and the larger it can be printed. Most photos taken with a smartphone have a resolution between 72-300 PPI, which is not ideal for printing on canvas. You can use online tools to check the PPI of your images, such as a PPI calculator.
At Firefly, we offer a service where you can have high-quality photos taken and have them printed on the canvas of your choice. By doing this, you can achieve your desired results without worrying about engaging two separate service providers or preparing yourself for studio photography.
3. Determine which size canvas print you want
Once you have selected the photos and size of canvas you want, you can move on to the next step. Take a quick look at the image size of the photos you want to print and compare it with the size of the available canvas prints. This will help you determine which size canvas print will work best for your photos and which printing option is most suitable.
When choosing the size of canvas print to order, keep in mind that the image you print may not appear exactly as it does on your screen. This is because the image will vary slightly when on your computer screen. Therefore, try to choose an image size slightly larger than what you would typically use for wall art. For example, if you usually print an image at 20 inches wide, select a 24-inch canvas to ensure the image will appear the same size when printed.
4. Find out more about the printing process
The printing process for canvas prints will vary depending on the print type, but there are some general aspects that apply to all types of prints.
The first thing to know about the printing process is that there is a chance that a slight colour variation may occur between each print. This means two identical prints will not look the same and may have slight visual differences. However, this is only a minor variation and should not affect the overall appearance of the print.
All canvas prints are printed on a different type of canvas from the standard ones used for paintings. This means your prints will be printed on a quality-grade material, thus lasting longer than a traditional canvas painting.
Canvas prints make excellent wall art and are a great way to personalise your home. To ensure you get the greatest prints possible, consider the points mentioned above before you begin ordering a print.
