Choosing Between A Traditional Image And Frameless Canvas Print

Photographs have become important elements of interior design whether it is a family portrait or a photograph of an appealing landscape you took while on an overseas vacation. The traditional way of displaying your most memorable photographs is to have them printed on paper and then placed in a beautiful frame.

Photographs printed on paper have its own aesthetic appeal and can be used as work of art on your walls. Even in the absence of color, black and white prints of your favorite photographs allow you a sophisticated and classy piece of art fitting for any room. However, when you require a larger size of the photograph so that it will be suitable for your living room, the price might be a little bit expensive. It is also difficult to find a suitable frame that can match the photograph as well as the décor of the home.

In the painting world, artists prefer canvas over other materials because it has a wonderful surface for oil paint or acrylic. Besides that, canvas is lightweight and more affordable. Recently, canvas has become a medium for printing photographs because of the introduction of inkjet printers and new formulations of canvas material.

After printing an image on canvas, you simply wait for 24 hours to pass to make sure that it is thoroughly dry. You can use a double-coating of protective spray against UV rays and undesirable elements that may harm the print. Large prints measuring 40” by 100” can be easily achieved through canvas at a more economical cost than paper. You do not even need a frame because canvas can be stretched to create a finished product with consistency and quality color. A frameless canvas will look good on your walls and can blend with any type of décor.

However, at the end of the day, it is still your personal preference and taste that will dictate on the kind of Wall Art Prints that you want displayed on a room. Some people may prefer the frameless look because it can be displayed without requiring a specific type of lighting but you may prefer a classy frame for your paper print to achieve a traditional look.
