There was a time when high-quality canvas prints required an artist to physically duplicate the work onto the canvas. Only a specialist who specializes in photo press work would be able to transfer photographs on canvas. You may, however, print on canvas yourself using today’s technology. Using the right computer programs, canvas, printers, and subject matter, you can make high-quality prints on canvas.

Getting set up

Step 1: Go to an office supply or craft store to get your canvas. Canvas can be printed in a range of textures and quality levels. It should also be built specifically for use with inkjet printers.

  • Gloss canvas produces a work of art that is comparable to something you would purchase.

  • UV resistant canvas is ideal for important works of art or keepsakes.

Step 2: To purchase digitized art prints, go online and do a search. To gain a sense of what’s available, go to art supply stores, galleries, and museum stores. Choose the fine art file you wish to use as the basis for your new canvas print.

  • Images that have been saved or scanned will print immediately on canvas.

  • Before you make your final decision, make sure the file has good clarity and contrast at the size you want.

Step 3: Use a picture of your computer as an alternative.

  • Windows Photo and Fax Viewer are opened on a PC. From this program choose the right document or image and go to “Print Options.” The options range from wallet size to photographs in their full page. Set your printer. Set your printer, too.

  • On a Mac, choose “Application.” Edit the graphical file, and select your printer if it isn’t already selected.

Step 4: Decide the size of the image you would like to create. Run a single paper test copy to give the finished product look and feel. If you turn it into a canvas printed later to hang, you may want a border on all sides of your canvas.

● If you want a border, it’s a good amount of 1 1/2 inch (3.75 cm) all around you, according to the size of your canvas and how much you want a 3D effect.

Loading your printer

Step 1: Use your printer with the rear manual feed slot. For fine art and canvas this is your best option! It can be printed without borders and uses the entire printable area of each sheet.

  • This is your feed, not the one lying on top, on the back of your printer. It is much more suitable for handling thicker sheets.

Step 2: Fit your canvas with the leading strips. You can feed your printer with a small strip of paper. The whole width of the paper must be running at the bottom. You’ve got a 13 “. You’ll need two strips of paper, wide sheet of linen. How to do it here:

  • Each paper strip should be approximately 1 “Width (2.5 cm). With a pair of scissors cut it straight.
  • Type every strip of paper to the bottom of the canvas where the printer feeds. You need to be flush against the sheet and just like a natural paper edge – if you don’t, you’ll feed the paper at a corner.

Step 3: Recenter your document on your new computer because of the extra inch. If you are using Photoshop, you can click “Canvas Size” on the Image pull-down menu. [3] If not, just open the “Print Configuration” box and then add another inch to the bottom.

  • Let’s say that you have a linen sheet of 13″x9″ to fill in. You now have 14 centimeters at the bottom “There was a mistake. Add the extra inch to keep it on your canvas – if you don’t use the whole thing.
  • Use it if you have an option “anchoring.” This allows for any file size so click the anchor in the bottom of the center and add room on the bottom. Set it to 1 again “There was a mistake.

Printing Your Artwork

Step 1: Fill the printer with the canvas. With the paper facing up, start with the leader side (if it prints face up, of course). Also, double-check that it’s going in straight.
  • Oh, and double-check that your printer is turned on, that you have enough ink in the colors you require, and so on.
Step 2: Prepare your feed. Your computer’s default option is unlikely to be “rear manual.” Make sure your printer is set up to feed appropriately. If possible, change the color and gradient, as well as the width of the paper.
  • Make sure the width and height of the photo (not the paper) are set up correctly in “User Details.” Also, double-check your anchors, borders, and everything else.
Step 3: Make a print of the artwork. Allow the canvas to dry completely before handling it to avoid scratching.
  • To make a stretched canvas, original piece of art, wrap the piece over a tiny box frame or other support.
