Ever wonder what makes oil paintings on canvas so special? Why is the Mona Lisa the Mona Lisa, and your photos of your cat are … well, photos of a cat?
Not everyone has thought about it, but they know something special when they see it. A framed, canvas painting hanging on a wall stands out from crowd of posters and photos. It tells people that it is something exceptional, of high value, significant.
How Does A Canvas Print Make Itself Special?
Several factors all work together to make stretched canvas images so appealing.
- Texture: canvas gives a mysteriously warm and visually appealing texture
- Substance: images appear to have density and weight on canvas
- Shine: archival lacquer finishes over Ultrachrome Archival Inks give an antiquated, permanent appearance
- Nostalgia: high quality images on canvas give the subconscious feel of an ancient, old-school, slow-crafted art form
The very nature of the materials along with our subconscious perceptions combine to give stretched canvas prints distinctive and exceptional qualities that make them memorable gifts and powerful ambiance assets.

What You Need To Know About Stretched Canvas Prints At Not Just A Copy Shop
- Not all digital files are equal: We are happy to put anything you want on stretched canvas, but to make you a high quality print, we need a high quality file. The better the file, the better the end product.
- Not all images are equally suited for canvas: Like every medium, what one envisions in one’s head, and what the technology is capable of is usually NOT the same thing. We always strive to reproduce what you have in your mind’s eye, but technology and materials have parameters that obey the laws of physics. We can use those laws to create many beautiful images for you, but, sadly, we can’t work miracles.
- Show us what you’ve got first: Before you get your heart set on any one particular image to put on canvas, come into the shop and show us what you’ve got to work with. We are more than happy to advise you from a technical and artistic standpoint on what will produce the closest thing to your vision of your masterpiece.
- Time: Allow 10 working days for completion. Rush orders can be done in 5 working days for an addition $50.00 priority fee.
- Size matters: View our price list here, based on the size of the print that you need.
