A custom canvas print is an image printed from an inkjet printer directly onto canvas. Once printed, the canvas gets stretched onto a frame. Some custom canvas prints can be frameless, some with a wooden border while others can be wrapped onto a frame. The latter is commonly referred to as the gallery-wrapping technique. During this process, the canvas is wrapped around the stretcher bars and secured to the frame.
Canvas is a strong and durable fabric traditionally created with hemp. Today, cotton, and linen have replaced hemp and the quality is measured gsm standards. Printify custom canvases are made of 100% cotton in 400gsm standards. Color seeps into cloth made with cotton fibers. Because of this, custom canvas prints made of cotton are longer-lasting. Many consider cotton prints higher-quality and closer to what you would find in a museum.
