Ordering canvas prints online is easy, but there are a few considerations to weigh before you place an order. Doing so will ensure you get the results you want, minus any stress or unnecessary hang-ups.
Here’s what to think about before ordering canvas prints online.
Your Canvas Print
When you order canvas prints online, the first step is determining how large a canvas you want. Our canvas sizes include:
- 32 x 40 in
- 20 x 32 in
- 16 x 24 in
- 24 x 32 in
You will also choose between giclée printing, which represents the highest quality and cost, or a more affordable conventional print. Graphic Impact offers a happy medium with our all-new EZpix option.
Image File Specs
You’ll need a digital file of the image you want on canvas. The file must have good enough resolution. For a canvas print, the resolution should be at least 100 dpi, or ‘dots per inch.’ Most canvas prints don’t need a resolution any higher than 180-200 dpi.
The image resolution can be adjusted using basic photo editing software. Look for a tool labeled Image or Print Size, Resize, or Resample. At Graphic Impact, any size image file is accepted as long as it has sufficient resolution.
Cost and Quality
There are many vendors out there marketing their printing services. What distinguishes them? Two central features are cost and quality.
Is the printing service low- or high-cost? Many consumers are looking for affordable jobs, but be sure your low-cost vendor is also capable of quality output. Graphic Impact, for example, handles all jobs in-house to maintain top quality. We have state-of-the-art printing presses and expert craftsmen who verify the quality of each print.
To determine the price of a given print, you may request a quote based on your specifications.
Features and Service
A printing company should have fast turnaround and solid customer service. Ideally, you also want a printer that uses environmentally friendly inks without any heavy metals, formaldehyde or other toxic chemicals.
Most people also want a printer that spares them setup fees or order minimums. Hidden fees are a real problem in this industry, so be sure your printer is up front about all pricing and doesn’t pass on setup costs to the consumer just to save a buck.
