American in Canvas Prints
The canvas prints come in different sizes. It is a wrap around print, which means the picture continues around the sides of the canvas, so you have the choice to hang it as-is or frame it. Either will look great!
What printing technology and canvas do you use?
The prints are giclee prints that are printed with UL ECOLOGO and UL GREENGUARD GOLD Certified 1 Water-based HP Latex Inks. They are hazard free, have no HAPs, and are nickel free. The canvas is a polyester material. The finished product has a semi-gloss surface.
How are the canvases packaged?
The boxes are specifically designed to protect your canvas while in shipping. Canvases will either come in a plastic bag to keep out moisture and are held securely in the center of the box, or will be shrink wrapped to a pad in order to keep them from moving during transportation.
What is the best way to hang a canvas?
Two saw-tooth hangers will be evenly spaced on the back of the canvas frame when the side they are applied to is longer than 36". Smaller canvases have saw-tooth hangers installed in the center of the back of the frame. You may choose to add your own hardware if you have a preference for how to hang your artwork.
When hanging art, the general rule of thumb is to have the center of the piece at the average persons eye-level. Galleries will often hang the center of the art from 60" - 66". If your canvas will hang over a piece of furniture just take that into consideration when hanging.
How do I clean my canvas?
The canvases are quite durable and should resist most scratches, smudges, fingerprints, etc. You can dust canvases with a soft, dry cloth. If your canvas is damaged and needs deeper cleaning you may try a damp cloth. If the canvas gets nicked and loses ink in a certain areas it can be touched up with felt-tip markers or paint.
