Custom canvas prints are an absolutely stunning addition to both homes and professional settings such as offices and lobbies. Use memorable personal pictures, beautiful landscapes, logos, and more -- simply upload your picture and we’ll do the rest. Theses canvas prints are digitally printed on a semi-gloss canvas material and then hand-wrapped around durable wooden stretcher frames (choose from .75” or 1.5” in thickness). Your custom print will also come with a hanging kit which includes a small metal bracket (known as a sawtooth bracket or hanger) and two screws for easy hanging or mounting. Put your photo or picture on canvas by getting started today!
Your custom canvas print comes with a small accessory kit. This kit includes a small bracket and two screws. Using a screwdriver, install the bracket into the back of the top of the frame using the two screws, making sure it is centered. After determining where you will hang your canvas print, mark the location on the wall. Lightly tap a nail into the wall in order to hang the canvas. For larger canvas prints, we recommend ensuring that the nail is inserted into a stud in the wall. Once the nail is inserted into the wall, simply hang the canvas print by the bracket on the backside of your print onto the nail in your wall.
Your canvas print is for indoor use only. Assuming the print is not dropped, scratched, or damaged accidentally it should last for years with minimal care. Dusting it or wiping it down with a non-abrasive dry cloth on a regular basis is the only maintenance it should need. More detailed care instructions are provided below in the FAQ section.

Canvas is technically a plain-woven fabric that currently is most often made from linen or cotton. In the past hemp was also used to produce canvas. This type of fabric is most commonly used for painting and even for making sails and tents.
Canvas is also an excellent material on which to digitally print your favorite and most memorable pictures or artwork. It is often wrapped around some kind of wooden frame and hung in personal and business settings. Hence, sometimes it is called a canvas print or canvas wrap. The two terms are usually interchangeable with the latter term usually implying that a wooden stretcher frame or bars are included. Our canvas prints come stretched over a wooden frame for a high-quality, finished look.
Our canvas prints are printed on a semi-gloss white canvas which means your artwork will be printed on a slightly textured surface. While you can’t expect the high glossy photo finish that you may get when printing on photo paper, we’re confident you’ll be pleased with the quality and clarity of your print. Canvas photo prints are a very widely used and a common way to print artwork and personal pictures for decorative purposes.
Having said that, the clarity and finish of your canvas print will be determined first and foremost by the original picture you upload to the site. Pictures or files that are out of focus or have inferior resolution quality (low DPI or pixelation) will have the same issues when printed on canvas or any other material. Assuming you have a high resolution photo, especially for large canvas prints,you will end up with a high quality print.
Ordering just a canvas print without the stretch frame/bars or decorative frame is often referred to as buying “unstretched canvas” or “rolled canvas.” At the current time we do not offer unstretched canvas prints. All prints come stretched across the wooden frame with one of three edge options. We anticipate offering unstretched canvas prints, in addition to the wrapped or stretched canvas we currently offer, in the future.
In terms of traditionally framing your canvas print, with our Standard Wrap (.75”) oftentimes you can buy a visible frame that still fits around the entire canvas wrap. This can include “floating frames” which leave a space in between the print and the stretcher frame (i.e. .25”) and makes it appear as if it is floating. We do not currently offer this or any traditional frames.
While we offer a wide variety of standard sizes, we currently do not offer custom sizes. If you need help cropping a picture or file in order to make your artwork fit one of the sizes listed below please contact us for free design services. All of the available sizes are listed below:
Standard Sizes: 12" x 16", 12" x 18", 12" x 24", 16" x 20", 16" x 24", 18" x 24", 18" x 36", 20" x 24", 20" x 30", 24" x 30", 24" x 36"
Panoramic Sizes: 12” x 36”
Square Sizes: 12" x 12", 16" x 16", 20" x 20", 24" x 24", 30" x 30"
As noted above, the differences here are largely semantic. Both a canvas wrap and canvas print simply refer to a photo, picture or artwork printed on canvas material. Often, ‘canvas wrap’ is used when the print is stretched (i.e. wrapped) across some kind of wooden frame. So whether you use one term or the other, we’ll understand what you mean. Just remember that we currently offer only offer prints that include the stretcher frame and not just the prints themselves.
Similar to the semantic difference between canvas prints and canvas wraps, canvas wall art is largely interchangeable with these terms. Whether it’s a small or large canvas wall art print for your home or business these work great as a piece of art that can be hung on our gallery frame thickness. Because it is a semantic difference you can create basically any custom canvas wall art you can imagine!
Our online design tool (www.esp.com/design) is where you’ll upload the photo you want printed on canvas. It accepts a wide variety of file formats. These include: .AI, .EPS, .PS, .PDF, .JPEG, .JPG, .PNG, .GIF, .BMP, .TIFF, .TIF. We recommend using whichever file type provides the greatest clarity and resolution for your photo or picture. This is typically a high resolution JPG picture from a digital camera.
The maximum file size limit for uploading is 25MB. For files bigger than 25MB there are two options. The first option is to send us the big file and we’ll set up a link to order with a smaller file online. We’ll then swap out the files before printing so we use the better file for printing. You can send us large files via DropBox, www.dropsend.com or other similar free file sharing websites or services.
The second option is to create a lower resolution file that is under 25MB. Use this to order online and then send us the file post-purchase using the same services listed above. Just make sure to note in the customer comments field during checkout that the file needs to be replaced.
Yes and yes! While we don’t have any preset filters or collage templates for a canvas collage print, we can definitely help you create one. Simply contact us to give us an idea of what you’re trying to accomplish along with the actual files and we’ll design/arrange your pictures for free.
Similar to collages, multi-panel canvas prints are possible through our free design services. Simply contact us with the file(s) and dimensions you need for your multi-panel display and we’ll help design it so you can quickly order the prints online. Within a few days you can have your multi-panel print hanging in your home or office!
As long as there isn’t an intentional effort to do so, scratching your canvas print is difficult to do. Nonetheless, we would still advise you to be very careful while handling and installing your print. These two events are the most likely times when a scratch could occur. In some cases, small nicks or scratches can be repaired with a soft tip felt pen or marker as a last resort.
In general, your canvas should be resistant to smudges and fingerprints, but we would still recommend handling the print like you would a picture (i.e. hold and handle your canvas print by using the edges or the back of the print where it is stapled onto your wooden frame). As mentioned elsewhere, a slightly damp rag can help remove small smudges or fingerprints in most cases if they do occur. Do not use any kind of cleaner, solvent or other liquids -- whether sprayed directly onto the print or even just on the rag to be used.
While canvas prints are usually purchased for decorative reasons, the actual uses and locations where they are used vary as widely as any signage type we offer. For personal use, we’ve seen it used as artwork in baby or nursery rooms, kid’s bedrooms, formal rooms, living rooms, kitchens, and virtually anywhere within a home. Popular canvas print ideas include pictures of babies, family, weddings, vacations, pets, and expressions or quotes. We’ve also seen them in dorm rooms, frat houses, cabins, and other places that need decorating but are lived in only seasonally or temporarily.
Professional uses of custom prints are just as varied. They are perfect for workplace offices, hallways, lobbies, receptionist areas, waiting areas, and even conference rooms. Likewise, schools, museums, art galleries, and government buildings. Businesses often use canvas prints for branding purposes and creating company culture.
In both cases, canvas prints are perfect for landscapes, skylines, stadiums, or panoramic prints, pictures of family or other loved ones, branding and logos, and even artwork created by professional artists. So whether you’re a professional photographer, a DIY interior designer, or a mom or dad with a beautiful family, a canvas print will work perfectly for you!
Installation & Care
Your custom canvas print can usually be mounted on any rigid surface. While the process of drilling, anchoring, and hanging the sign will differ slightly depending on the surface where it will be hung, the process is generally the same.
After measuring, marking and ensuring a level hang, you need to install the sawtooth brackets to the top center of the backside of your canvas. Each print will come with at least one accessory kit that includes one bracket and two screws. Using a handheld screwdriver, install the bracket(s) into the top center of the wooden stretcher frame on the backside of your canvas.
Once the bracket is attached to your print you’ll need to put something (usually a nail or small screw) into the wall in order to hang the print. Smaller prints shouldn’t need to have these inserted into studs (if mounting on drywall) but for larger prints it is safer to drill or tap the nail into existing studs. Using your previously marked and measured location, tap the nail into the wall. Once finished you are ready to hang your canvas on your wall using the installed brackets.
Moving or repositioning your canvas print is the activity most likely to damage your print. Be extra careful no sharp object punctures, rips, or tears your print. In almost all cases this can be avoided by simply being careful and using a sufficient number of people to help move larger prints.
Storing your prints can also cause damage if not done correctly. Always store your print upright and never flat. Storing them flat with any kind of heavy object on them can ruin or puncture the print. Heavy objects placed on top of a print may also cause the print to become “loose,” which is irreversible. Store them like you would any other piece of art -- upright, in a cool dry room at room temperature -- and your print will last for years to come.
