Canvas

A classic and timeless material

Art on canvas works on any wall, but comes into its own in classic interiors. To give your canvas even more character, you can opt for a tray frame finish.

Canvas vs. Art Frame

Canvas and Art Frame are our bestsellers when it comes to materials.

The most important differences:

  • Canvas is stretched over durable, approved wood. Art Frames come with a narrow aluminium frame into which the printed textile is then pressed. This means that the same frame can be used for different (identically sized) textile prints. The central difference between Canvas and Art Frame is therefore the possibility of changing prints.
  • Due to shipping restrictions, the maximum size for canvas is smaller. You can find these measurements when ordering your picture. Art Frames, however, can be ordered in sizes up to 15 by 3 metres.
  • Would you like to improve the acoustics in your home or office? Then an Art Frame with sound-absorbing panels might be for you. These panels are invisibly placed behind the canvas in the frame, so sound is absorbed rather than reflected.

With canvas, adding sound-absorbing panels is not possible.

Curious about the possibility of framing a canvas? The tray frames from Art Heroes are made of sustainable wood and create a boxlike effect in which the canvas sits. Such a frame gives a neat linear effect.

Looking for something both classic and chic? Maybe try a gold frame! The gold frame gives a touch of luxury to your image and provides added impact.

Natural tray frame

Good to know: The frame makes your work appear larger but also literally increases the size of your work. Tray frames add 1.5cm to each edge of the picture (e.g. a 30x50 print becomes 33x53). A gold frame adds 7cm to each edge (30x50 becomes 44x64).

With the tray frame, the work almost floats in the frame, while with a gold decorative frame it falls slightly over the work.

Frequently asked questions about canvas

The minimum size is 20x20 cm. You can find the maximum size of canvas under your favourite artwork whenever you are ordering it.

Good to know: The sizes you choose will fit the work exactly. So there is no cutting to the work, or deforming the work. Do you want a different ratio/size? Please contact us.

By this we mean the side of the canvas. You can think of a canvas as a cloth folded around a wooden frame. As a result, part of the work can also be seen on the side. You decide what you want to see on the side of your canvas:

  • Faded sides: the colours of the work appear faded on the side.
  • Mirrored sides: the work is mirrored on the sides.
  • Folded sides: the image continues over the sides of the canvas.

Type of cover to canvas. From left to right: faded, mirrored and folded.

A canvas without a baking frame in the size 250x140 cm weighs about 5 kg.

A canvas with a tray frame in the size 250x140 cm weighs about 10 kg.

The sizes you choose fit the work exactly. So there is no deformation of the work.

A different ratio or size is certainly possible. Contact us, and we will be happy to help.

No. We print on very finely woven cotton, so no details are lost.

The price of canvas depends on the size and the work you choose. Browse through the collection, choose canvas as your material and the size that suits you, and you will immediately see the price.

When you compare our canvas with other providers, we do not have the lowest price. This is because we are committed to quality.

Giclée is a printing process that ensures very high-quality prints.

This high quality is achieved by:
- Print technique
- The quality of the inks
- High-quality cotton (canvas)

Giclée printing uses uninterrupted ink jets that print different colours layer by layer. This is made possible by piezo print head technology, which allows the ink quantity and frequency to be dosed very precisely.

The inks are based on real pigments. These pigmented inks ensure colour fastness for up to 100 years. Another advantage of pigment inks is that they do not stink!

No you don't feel those. This is because it is a giclée print. In other words, a printing technique where the work you choose is printed on high-quality cotton. Because it is razor-sharp, it looks just like the real thing, but you don't feel this.

It is possible to have a photo printed through us. However, it is important that this photo is taken with a good camera in high resolution and that you are the rightful owner of the photo. Here you can upload your own photo on canvas.

Pigmented inks can give a colour fastness of 100 years or more. In addition, a giclée on canvas is manually coated with several layers of transparent varnish. The advantage of varnishing is that the colours stand out beautifully and the canvas is extra protected against UV light, becomes more scratch-resistant and can be cleaned if, for example, it gets dusty.

The canvas prints are also tightly stretched on PEFC-approved wood. High-quality wood that does not deform under pressure. As a result, it does not warp and our canvases always hang tight against the wall.

No, the canvas is delivered ready-made. It is manually assembled by our craftsmen. All you have to do is unpack the package and give it a nice spot on the wall.

Yes you can. The pigment inks we use ensure colour fastness for up to 100 years. After printing, we additionally protect the inks with a varnish layer.

Both the inks and the varnish coat make it UV-resistant. So you can hang it in sunlight without any problems.

Just get in touch with us. We will be happy to discuss the possibilities with you.

You can wipe the canvas with a (slightly!) damp cloth. Do not use a detergent.

The canvas prints are tightly stretched on PEFC-approved wood. High-quality wood that does not deform under pressure. You can choose the thickness of this wood yourself. Choose a wood thickness of 2 or 4,5 cm.

On large formats, the 4,5 cm thick variant looks more robust. If you hang a 4,5 cm thick canvas in a place where you walk right past it, a narrow hall or close to it, choose the 2 cm thick variant.

By the way, it does not mean that 4,5 cm thick is sturdier. Both thicknesses do not warp, so mainly choose the one you like best!

The canvas has a matt finish.

Canvas itself has no acoustic function. It does have a slightly absorbent function, like a rug, for example.

Are you looking for a material that can optimally help improve acoustics? Then check out art frame.

Canvas comes with a hanging system already affixed. The metal fixture can be easily hung from a screw or nail. You place the hanging system on top of a screw or nail, on the ribbed edge. For works under 1 metre, there is a single fixture, for works larger than 1 metre, there are two.

Have you ordered a canvas with a box frame? The hanging system works identically.

Yes you can. The pigment inks we use ensure colour fastness for up to 100 years. After printing, we additionally protect the inks with a varnish layer.

Both the inks and the varnish coat make it UV-resistant. So you can hang it in sunlight without any problems.

Canvas is securely packed in plastic bubble wrap and cardboard. A courier collects the package from our production and delivers it directly to your home or office.

We work with couriers who are used to handling fragile parcels, so that's all right. Not at home? Then the delivery driver will leave a note and an appointment can be made to schedule a new delivery.

Of course, something can always happen during shipping. If your parcel does get damaged during transport, please contact us and we will resolve it quickly and correctly.

In general, the package is shipped 10 working days after ordering. Do you have a rush? Get in touch with us!
