We Transfer your posters, photos and art prints to canvas
Additionally to our comprehensive collection of canvas prints in stock, we also offer a transfer to canvas service to satisfy all your prints on canvas needs. With this canvas transfer service we can transfer to canvas any printed image that you provide us as paper prints, photos, digital photos or posters.
We transfer the
image printing directly onto the canvas itself using the giclee method (because the image is printed digitally your poster or print is returned to you in the same condition it's received).
The price of the canvas transfer is directly related to its size. If you want to know the price for a transfer please use the calculator below.
NOTE: The canvas transfer can be made larger or smaller than the original so the measures used to compute the price are the transfer image size on the canvas print. Also note that the maximum size we make is 34x72" or 72x34"
Brushstrokes Effect is an extra feature that adds more realism to the canvas print. They are hand applied following the paterns as in the original painting. The result is a rich textured relief very similar to the one found in the original oil painting.

Yes you can as long as it does not infringe any copyright ownership, but most Internet images have very poor resolution as they are intended to be shown on the monitor only.

WHAT SIZE CAN THE CANVAS TRANSFER HAVE?
We can make the canvas transfer in the same size of the original and also enlarge or reduce the image according to your needs. Please note that the quality of the image on the enlargements is related to the quality of the original and its size. As a general rule of thumb, enlargements up to 5 times the size of the original give good quality canvas transfer. Beyond 5 times some sharpness loss can be expected. As a tip, the larger and sharper the original, the better quality the enlarged transfer will be. Back to top
