Can anyone recommend an online provider and/or method of canvas printing of photographs? It doesn't need to be wrapped around gallery style stretched canvas, but just a way to remotely have photographs printed from a digital format to stretch canvas. Money, distance, etc are not factors. I'm more interested in process and quality of result.
I don't have a first hand experience with their canvas prints, but BayPhoto did fine on my 20x16 foamcore mounted prints. Their prices seem to be in-line with comparative services and their customer service is very good as well. The submission of files is through a convenient Java applet (BayROES) that you download from their website and through which you manage your account.
There is also RGBdigital in Brisbane Australia. Here are the sizes and prices: http://rgbdigital.com.au/pricelist/canvas.html They also use ROES for electronic orders. They use quality Canson matte cotton canvas, printed on a large format Epson printer with archival inks, every canvas is custom made, frames are cut to size and canvas hand stretched.
There are several, plus, several blog posts across the web suggesting such services.
Here are a few:
- Point 101 (UK Based, ships to Europe, North America Far East and Australia)
- CanvasPop (US Based, ships to US & Canada only)
- Canvas R Us (Netherlands Based, ships to US, Europe and Australia)
- Your Image 2 Canvas (UK Based, ships to Europe)
Regarding an How to manually print and frame it, you can follow some nice Youtube tutorials, here is one in 2 parts:
