The museum quality of canvas reproductions is sure to satisfy a serious fine art collector. Prints on giclee canvas are tougher and more durable than conventional paper prints. It has been consistently shown that giclee canvas lasts longer than anything else available on the market.

Giclee canvas art does not need to be framed to look amazing – it can be a stretched gallery wrap style. The natural texture of the canvas gives these prints the look and feel of an original painting.

To protect your canvas we offer UV coatings in both spray and liquid lamination in a variety of finishes (matte, satin, gloss).

High quality professional stretching is offered on 3/4″ or 1 1/2″ gallery style bars.

Exhibition Canvas

Exhibition Canvas Natural Matte enables a wide colour gamut for prints that require stunning, museum-grade image quality and durability, without the use of Optical Brighteners (OBA). Built on a polyester and cotton blend that is specially coated to produce vibrant colours as well as rich, deep blacks and tonal gradations that distinguish them from competitive products. These poly-cotton canvases are also the ideal weight and can also be easily stretched and coated by us, to help achieve the best combination of image quality and archival display life.

Do you offer Print-On-Demand and ship to my customer?2018-10-15T16:29:35-07:00

We print and ship directly to artists who are ordering at a wholesale level, and they distribute the prints to their customers.

At this time we don’t offer a print on demand and fulfillment service.

Do you ship internationally?2018-10-15T16:55:51-07:00

Unfortunately at this time we only ship to customers within Canada as we have found the charges involved in shipping and duty fees to send to the USA and beyond to be cost prohibitive.

How much is shipping?2018-10-16T15:49:19-07:00

We ship orders by Canada Post Expedited mail, with insurance and tracking.

Cost is based on the weight and size of your order, along with your location in Canada; in accordance to Canada Post’s pricing.

For clients ordering large volumes we compare costs with sending by courier, and use the most cost efficient and timely service.

What should I do if my parcel is damaged in transit?2018-10-16T15:26:03-07:00

We take great care to package your order safely and securely. It’s extremely rare for items to be damaged in transit, however if there’s a problem with your delivery please take photographs of the outside of the package and the damaged items and email the pictures in to us. Include a list of the items damaged and we will re-print and send out to you as quickly as possible.

All orders are shipped by Canada Post Expedited mail with insurance and tracking for your peace of mind.

What payment methods do you accept?2018-10-16T12:50:53-07:00

Our preferred forms of payment are cash, cheque or debit card. If we are shipping your order to you, we accept payment by e-transfer prior to dispatch.

If you need to pay via credit card you can do so at our print studio location, or ask us to send you an secure email form to fill out with your card details.

We can keep a record of your card details offline for repeat orders, with your permission.

Please note we do not accept Amex cards.

I took a photo with my cellphone, can I make a print from this?2018-10-16T13:09:08-07:00

Generally speaking self shot images are typically only suitable for art cards, this is because the camera sensor is small and doesn’t capture enough detail for the image to be printed any larger.

However, if your photo is good quality and the lighting is even we may be able to print up to a size of 11’x14″ – we can look at your image file and advise you first.

*We have a top of the range camera and a professional lighting system in our studio, enabling us to take crystal clear evenly lit photo’s of your work for print reproduction.

How much do prints and art cards cost?2018-10-16T14:54:41-07:00

Please see our pricing estimators at the top of this page. You can enter the quantities and sizes of prints / cards you are interested in and see a total price, set-up fees are extra.

If you have a special request or are looking for an item or size / quantity not listed, please fill out our contact form and a member of our team will get back to you!

How long will it take for my order to be printed?2020-07-24T09:31:24-07:00

Re-orders of prints can typically be ready for collection or shipping within 2 to 4 business days.

New print files require additional time for set-up and proofing, usually an extra 2 business days for prints, up to 4 business days for art card designs and layouts.

Prints on canvas can take 7 to 10 business days to complete due to time required for varnishing and stretching.

Please let us know if you have a deadline to meet and we will advise you of how long your specific order will take!

*Please allow time for your proofs to be mailed to you by Canada Post for approval before we can print your order.

Do your minimum order amounts and price break quantities count for mixed images?2020-07-24T09:30:17-07:00

We take great care when producing art cards and prints, making sure the colours consistently match the proofs which we keep on file for every single order we print.

Due to the high level of attention and time required to make adjustments to the printing press for colour matching, we have minimum order amounts and price breaks based on orders per image.

Therefore minimum order amounts cannot contain mixed images.

This is because the same amount of work is involved for setting the files up for print and colour matching, no matter if we are printing 50 cards or 5000 cards.

We guarantee repeat print orders will always match the print proof, which is part of our set-up procedure for new orders. Our clients are invited to come and view the proofs at our studio in Victoria, or have them mailed.

What format should my files be for printing?2020-07-24T09:29:39-07:00

It’s important we use the best quality image files possible to print from, as the finished print can only be as good as the image we are given!
If you are scanning or photographing your art piece, we have some tips to help you achieve good results in our Artists’ Handbook.

Your image files should be in .tiff, .PSD (Photoshop) or .jpg format at 300 – 400 dpi at 100% size, in Adobe RGB colour space.
Digital layouts (print ready) should be provided as InDesign or as high quality .PDF files (with bleed if applicable).

If your image files don’t fit within these parameters you can still share them with us, we can advise you if they will work or not and offer further advice
Can I get a sample of my print before ordering?2020-07-24T09:29:20-07:00

We always show our clients a print proof before continuing with producing their order. If you are located outside of Victoria we can mail the proof out to you, if needed adjustments can be made for a small fee.

Set-up and proofing of new image files starts at $15 for digital press prints and art cards. Giclée proofs start at $20 (for print ready digitally created art / photo test strip) and $35 for images of original paintings.

Please note, the appearance of colours can vary widely when viewing on a screen compared to in print; and the accuracy of colour matching is dependent on the quality of the image file and the lighting / camera used.

*If critical colour matching is required, we recommend photographing or scanning your original art work for you for best results!

Is your paper and card stock eco-friendly?2020-07-24T09:27:56-07:00

All of our stock comes from sustainable sources and is Forestry Stewardship Certified, see our ‘Environment’ page.

Our paper and card stock is not only higher quality than recycled material, but also more Earth friendly.

What is a Giclée print?2020-07-24T09:27:17-07:00

The word ‘Giclée’ (pronounced “zhee-clay”) is derived from the French verb ‘gicler’ meaning “to squirt or spray”.

This digital fine art printing method combines superior quality pigment inks with archival papers for the most accurate reproduction of art work, thanks to our diligence in colour profiling and print proofing.

Giclée are considered to be the best quality digital prints available, ideal for limited edition print runs.

You can read more about this type of archival print in our Artist’s Handbook
